Bioshock 2 for $10 = eh, ok

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I had to kill some time last week while my sister was shopping for whatever it is women shop for, and the only remotely interesting store in the mall was Gamestop (it was either that or troll the Mac Geniuses in the Apple Store, and I wasn't in the mood for that). It turns out they had a NIB, returned copy of Bioshock 2 for $10; two of them in fact.

Now I know what you're thinking. Bioshock 2 was garbage! Well yes. Yes it was. But only in light of the fact that they were charging a full $50 for it. For $10... It still sucks, because GFWL is the most evil, bloodsucking, bloated, terribad product ever to come out of Microsoft since Windows ME.

But...



You can get rid of it!

So without GFWL is Bioshock 2 worth $10? Yes. Yes it is. It's not nearly as clever as the original, but the gameplay is still solid and it'll keep you entertained for a few hours. If you pass by a Gamestop it might be worth dropping in and seeing if they've got a used copy. Just remember the GFWL remover!

They had one shelf, in the back of the store, with a ladder left in front of it. It took me ten minutes just to notice they even had PC games. (I was thinking about picking up LA Noire for PS3, but decided to get that later when it drops in price) But yeah, they had about three rows of new games, then half a row of used games (mostly crap), then more new games.

So I've been playing it. It feels like a really ambitious mod of the original, like one of those total conversion mods some insane modders work on for a year for other games. If this were an amateur effort I'd be impressed. For a full retail-priced game, this is weeeeeaaaaak. If I'd paid a full $50 for this, I'd be pissed.

$10-$20 seems fair though.

You have to really search for the used PC games section.

$10 is a good price, i paid slightly less and i had to put up with GFWL.

Thanks for the link. I have played Bioshock 2 on and off after buying it on sale. To be honest it feels like the first game in every way. More like an expansion pack of the first with a totally different story line(that's not as good).

I don't think Gamestop sells used PC games.

And on that note, I got Bioshock 2 from Gamestop for $10 dollars months ago. I think it was posted somewhere else.

Great game though for $10.
