Bioshock 2 is a science-fiction horror, first-person shooter, and a sequel to the 2007 critically-acclaimed game, inspired by the writings of Ayn Rand.
Taking place eight years after Bioshock, the player takes control of "Subject Delta," a new Big Daddy prototype, revived in Rapture by Eleanor, a teenager controlling other Little Sisters. With a new assortment of bizarre weapons and powers, Subject Delta fights his way against Splicers through the remnants of Rapture. The game also includes online play.
Reception was generally favorable, with an average score of 87%. While not as visually stunning as its predecessor, most critics agreed that the storytelling is just as engaging, with yet another twist at the end.
Though it's possible to obtain all offline trophies in one go, getting both Big Brass Balls (which means not using the Vita-Chamber "checkpoints") and Against All Odds (completing the game on Hardest difficulty) at the same time, could be pretty trough. Unless you're a wiz, expect to play through the game twice.
There are online trophies as well, though not particularly difficult ones. Expect around 40-50 hours of gameplay, depending on skills.
It's possible to acquire all the offline trophies in one go, but could prove incredibly frustrating. Otherwise, you may wish to take this in two strides: the first, collecting all offline trophies while playing on Easy mode - which includes disabling the Vita Chambers for the Big Brass Balls trophy, and finding all the collectibles. Use the walkthroughs and guides under our Links tab to help you. Also, as a word of warning, remember there is NO chapter select.
With all those trophies taken care of, select the hardest difficulty, and just get from start to finish. Afterwards, all that should be left are the online trophies. These are more time-consuming than difficult - just keep grinding till you get them all. It's been rumored that Mother Goose, which requires you to save a Little Sister in a non-private match, is glitchy. If you don't get the trophy the first time, it may take two or three more tries until it unlocks.
