    Not much change compared to the first but the lore and the gameplay are still just amazing.

    Actual Grade 8.5 After playing through both Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite, I was literally hooked on this series, the lore itself made me truly want to play the second installment right away. When you look at the review... Read Full Review
