I agree, bioshock 2 is not a bad game but it just lacks the same spark that 1 had. |
However a big part of what made 1 so good was its original atomsphere and narrative so a straight sequel would always suffer.
On topic iam going to throw a curveball;
How about Everquest 2? the first game set a new standard in MMO design as it took ultima and ran with it but 2 was resource heavy, buggy and generally very fiddly.
