BioShock 2 Multiplayer Impressions: Undiscovered Rapture

Nobody buys baseball cards for the gum, and nobody's going to buy BioShock 2 for the multiplayer. So it is not a condemnation to say that, while 2K Marin's BioShock 2 shows great promise, Digital Extremes' BioShock 2 multiplayer component is looking like a lackluster experience.

For starters, the modes on tap only extend to free-for-all, team deathmatch, and an unannounced thing. A lot is riding on that mystery mode, because as it stands, BioShock fans likely won't find the deathmatch to be any more than a one-round curiosity. Read more »

BioShock 2 Impressions: Seeing and Dreaming

"If you can hear me, wake up," says Dr. Bridgette Tenenbaum over a pitch-black screen, our first glimpse of BioShock 2. "Your time for sleeping is over."
