1) The game REQUIRES online activation. If you are a serviceman/servicewoman stationed in Baghdad (or anywhere in the field without internet) you're totally screwed. Requiring an internet connection to activate is offensive in itself, but coupled with the other major issues with this game's DRM scheme, it just keeps getting worse.
2) The game limits the number of times you can install it. I don't care if they give me 1,000 installs, any limit on how long I can use a game I paid for simply isn't acceptable. I'm not paying for the 'privilege' of installing how ever many times 2K or anyone else thinks is appropriate. If I buy a game, I want to actually BUY it, meaning I OWN IT and CAN DO WHAT I WANT WITH IT. If I buy the game and don't like it, how can I resell it? How can I verify to the person I'm selling it to that it has installations left? This is just a petty and insulting way to treat paying customers. I don't want to have to come crawling back to 2K or Microsoft to explain why I might need more installations for a game I already gave them forty or more dollar for. And what if they close their doors at some point in the future? How can I be guaranteed I'll still have access to my game?
3) Securom, the DRM package used by Bioware, installs with the game and there is no option to install it without Securom.Read more ›
The game play and graphics are as beautiful as the original, just disappointed that single player mode requires an Internet connection to save the game. Works great on my HP dv6 laptop. Unfortunately I will never get more than an hour into the game, and with no save due to no connection this game is going bye-bye.
***update, see K. Black's comment for single player offline save game work around***
I have finished this game 4 times now, working on number five. Each time I try a different approach. I use different weapons, plasmids, tonics, harvest or save the little sisters. I have found new things each time I play the game.
I have not had problems with lock ups ot any problems with game play.
That being said, Windows Live is a PITA. It took me over an hour before I could even play the game. I was excited when I bought it, but after going through the install process, I was fed up and didn't even play the game until the next day. There is no excuse for putting customers through that type of crap just to play your game. I did not know about the Windows Live crap before I bought the game, but I can tell you this, if then next game I look at buying says Windows Live anywhere on the box, I am not buying it.
I love this game, hate Window Live.
Gameplay is straightforward, to the point of being simplistic; it's pretty much a run around and shoot things game, which works fine to a point, but the game is also stuffed full of padding - mostly the sub-missions where you guard Little Sisters while they harvest Adam, which start out harrowing but quickly get repetitive and dull. A handful of levels are total knockouts (one memorable one involves escaping a building while it's in the process of flooding, in what feels like real time), and the weakest levels are still competently done. A handful of new enemies liven things up, in a way, mainly by having annoying special abilities that make them harder to kill. In terms of gameplay it's a competent game, really, with a few standout points of excellence. Bioshock 2 just doesn't really bring anything *new* to the table, and doesn't improve on the existing stuff enough to make much of an impact. And even with all the padding it's still a surprisingly short game.
The real problem with Bioshock 2, though, is the story and plot elements.Read more ›
