X360A Review: BioShock 2

I'll be the first person to sit here and hold my hands up and say, "I was skeptical about BioShock 2."
Sometimes in this day and age of gaming, some things are meant to be left sacred. Great standalone games don't necessarily have to spawn sequel after sequel. Adding a follow-up to a true classic - and stuffing in multiplayer that many of us regarded as pointless - is not always the smartest move.
Here we are though. The game's out and whilst I've been running around like a mad-hatter at Microsoft's X10 showcase, Lee has been indulging in his inner scuba-diver as he took to the streets of Rapture; a once great city left in ruins many fathoms under the sea. Can BioShock 2 fill the boots of its universally lauded older brother? Is it really a sequel that we could have lived without?
