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 has some performance inconsistencies that the last couple driver revisions have started to clear up performance wise. The Palit GTX 460 delivers performance more on par with its price point in this game. Even though it is outgunned in most of the testing in Bioshock 2 there is not a single resolution where you can not enjoy all the game has to offer, even at 2560x1600.
