If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
But yeah. It did take awhile, and many people were expecting more out of the story.

i am absolutely loving the multiplayer...capture the sister is way way fun...it took me like an hour or two to get it down, but now it is addicting...its different from every other multiplayer experience...havent played through the single player yet, bc im playing through the first one on hard with no vita chambers first...

i dont understand why ppl complain about the game being similar to the first...that is what every sequel is...you dont hear critics bashing halo or gears for doing it...personally i think it is amazing so far, and it is exactly what i wanted...to return to rapture

Um.. If you look at any history of original IPs, or big changes in sequels, it takes more than two years. Two years is the point where you can add a lot artistically, and a few new features, but not much more. There are exceptions to the rule, but it's true in most cases.

Well, they did write two stories, one with the big sister being the villain, and the one we have now, big sisters attacking you after harvesting or saving the last sister in a level.

This couldn't make less sense.

Bioshock 2 is a sequel that takes place in the same underwater city with the same inhabitants...so obviously it's going to be very similar to the first.

And complaining that it took 2 years for a sequel? If it came out after only 1 year, people would complain that it was rushed.

There's no winning or pleasing some people.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one confused as hell by this. Too much like Bioshock 1? Like everyone else is asking, "What did you expect?" It's a sequel.....why would it not be the same? Sonic 3 was the same as Sonic 2 which was the same as Sonic 1. Banjo-Tooie was the same as Banjo-Kazooie. Twilight Princess was the same as Wind Waker which was the same as Majora's Mask which was the same as Ocarina of Time. I think you get the picture. I'd really love to know OP's and that other poster's method of thinking here. I mean, did you think they'd make Bioshock 2 an RTS or something?

Maybe he thought there would be a bigger jump in graphics or something.

It's on the same console, why would it look significantly better? It's all the same hardware. It did look SLIGHTLY better since developers are more familiar with the hardware.

I love how the wounds in dead corpses are more realistic. You can paint a body red if you melee it long enough, you couldn't on the first game.
