Invited with great fanfare to try the solo mode as well as the multiplayer mode of Bioshock 2 download in the cozy atmosphere of a San Francisco movie studio, we did not pray to grab the joystick on the fly. A good hour and a half of play later, we give you our feelings on this long-awaited sequel!
The events told in Bioshock 2 may take place 10 years after those of the first episode, and we place at the controls of a new character, it takes no more than a few minutes to get back into the bath. A mild euphemism when the action takes place once again in the sunken city of Rapture. This time, we will play a prototype of Big Daddy, these huge characters in a diving suit so difficult to overcome in the previous opus. The goal of our quest will be to find a girl; the original little sister, to whom our character is strangely related. And if, by reading these few lines you are a little lost, do not worry, the developers of 2K Marin have thought about the players who will discover the universe so special Bioshock with this sequel. Indeed, the player will be confronted very early in the adventure to a kind of life-size tutorial.
It will take the form of an amusement park built by the founder of Rapture, who, thanks to many paintings will explain the history of this phantasmagorical project, but also the stake of this new game against a background of ideological confrontation. between two streams of thought: that of the founder of Rapture Andrew Ryan and dissident Sophia Lamb.The little ghost train lights us on Rapture by introducing our first opponents, but it is also an opportunity to taste a gameplay significantly different from that of the first opus. Certainly, moving with the armor of the Big Daddy gives the game a soft side of the knee.
But rest assured, this impression is quickly forgotten as soon as we go into battle mode. Equipped with a drill, the animal that we embarked is doing great damage, and this is only the default weapon dedicated to hand-to-hand … All the weapons of Bioshock 1 will be of the part accompanied by some surprises. Submachine guns, grenade launcher, gatlings and rivet guns will give you a feeling of unparalleled power. And then the other big change in the world of Bioshock, due to the change of main character, comes from the fact that one can use the Plasmid powers of the left hand, without having to lower his weapon.
The combinations are multiple, and to make you salivate, here is a small example. To start the clash, you can turn your opponent into ice cube using the Plasmid gel already present in the previous opus. Then make use of the power of telekinesis to send it in the air. There, armed with a rocket launcher, send a salvo of missiles on the quidam that will go to the other end of the level without understanding what had happened to him. Admit that it makes you want. Especially since the weapons can all be improved three times to add to them a surplus of power or a new special capacity. However, not all opponents of the game are as easy as the followers of Sophia Lamb. The Brutes and other Big Daddies will give you a lot of trouble …
If some passages of the game will take place in the water, outside the enclosure of the submerged city of Rapture, we were entitled only to the traditional levels inside. But beware, the classic adjective only concerns their architecture. Many phases of gameplay taking part in the quest of our character are unpublished. On the way to your “little sister”, you will have the opportunity to temporarily adopt each little sister encountered, once his protector occis. These girls are precious because they are the ones that will allow you to harvest the Adam, the currency of exchange that serves to acquire and improve Plasmid powers. Once you have a little sister on your shoulder, she will guide you to a freshly cooled body with precious substance. There, it will be necessary to prepare to see breaking waves of enemies attracted by the Adam like mosquitoes by your bare arms during the warm summer nights in the south of France for a few minutes. And what better preparation than setting up traps, antipersonnel mines and whatnot … Finally, and once again true to the concept of free will initiated in the original game, you will have to choose if you want to “save” the little sister by introducing it into a ventilation duct, or you get rid of it loosely to gain more Adam.
The unique atmosphere of Bioshock is back and it will hurt. The graphics are beautiful and the effects of water are much more impressive than in Bioshock 1. As for multiplayer, it crystallizes all that can be expected of a multi-console FPS. Accessibility, depth and speed, it is certainly a great title for the game network. The usual modes have been adapted to the universe (the capture of the flag has for example been replaced by the capture of the little sister), and some phases of the game have reminded us of the classics of the genre: Team Fortress Classic in the lead with setting turret position and repair. The icing on the cake, we can customize its multi avatar, gain experience points for unlocking improvements, and especially set to his liking the set consisting of two weapons, three Plasmids and three Tonics (passive abilities). In short, happiness in perspective, both for the solo part for the multi.
