BioShock 2 is the sequel to a game that won more than 50 game of the year awards and sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide. Though a first-person shooter at its core, BioShock 2 blends that with RPG elements and drops you into an environment like no other - the underwater dystopian city of Rapture. Set approximately ten years after the events of the original, BioShock 2 allows the player to be one of the most iconic video game characters of recent years, a Big Daddy. Powered by the Unreal Engine 2.5 and featuring Havok Physics, BioShock 2 also adds multiplayer to the mix, filling in the one hole prevalent in the first game. There are seven different multiplayer game modes that take place in 1959, before the events of the original BioShock.

Bioshock 2 delivers some decidedly different results with the Nvidia based graphics cards. The results are better with the 256 series drivers than the 197.15 drivers, but not quite there with the inconsistent performance. The ENGTX465 does well until you get to 2560x1600. When overclocked, the results are skewed decidedly downwards with the ENGTX465.
