Bioshock 2 PS4
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. The game was originally released for the PS3 in 2010, then ported onto the PS4 in 2016 as part of BioShock: The Collection, which includes the DLC but not the online multiplayer.
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.
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.
The trophy list for Bioshock 2 on the PS4 has been somewhat altered from that on the PS3, which shaves off playing time on the way to the Platinum. The PS4 version lacks a multiplayer mode, so there are no online trophies to worry about. Also, it should be noted that the DLC Protector Trials and Minerva's Den has been included in the game, but still is not a requirement towards the Platinum. Overall, the game adds more challenge than time, though could be considered a 2-star difficulty for players who already have experience with the PS3 version.
Expect anywhere between 15-20 hours, depending on skills and prior experience.
It's possible to acquire all the trophies - including the Platinum - in one go. This may not be so difficult for players who experienced the game on the PS3, though could prove incredibly frustrating if this is your first time. Otherwise, you may wish to take this in two strides
The first involves playing on Easy mode, finding all collectibles and unlocking all miscellaneous trophies. This will require both a collectibles guide, as well as a Bioshock 2 trophy guide, so be sure to check out those out under our Links tab. Also, if you hope to get the Platinum in only two playthroughs, then disable the Vita Chambers to unlock the Big Brass Balls trophy. Also, as a word of warning, remember there is NO chapter select or free roam.
With all those trophies taken care of, select the hardest difficulty, and just get from start to finish. This is also a good opportunity to grab any miscellaneous trophies you missed during your first playthrough. Overall, hard mode is not too challenging, especially for those with experience.
And since there are no online trophies to worry about on the PS4, you should hopefully have your Platinum after that.
