yea, took me f*cking half an hour to install.
Anyways, a bit confused in siren alley. I picked up a sister (after saving one already), and the next corpse is behind a door that's locked with a code. My main storyline is to go look for daniel. should i keep looking for a code, or go with the storyline?

Has anyone tried the multiplay. I tried it when the game first came out and I thought it was alright. Tried to play today and it's a laggy mess in every game I have joined. It's completely unplayable. I wonder if the patch has anything to do with that?

Yeah, I tried a match today and it was extremely laggy - though didn't try to find another game. Multiplayer is okay for a lark, but won't keep me going forever (just basically a way to play BioShock without getting to far into singleplayer due to wanting to finish ME2).

I don't know about you guys, but I actually like this game

Bioshock had a poor story, and while Bioshock 2 isn't revolutionary, it is tighter and your decisions do add up a little bit at the end from various events.

Btw, I ended up playing the last half of the game with the option that reduces plasmid use cost, but only allows me to use the drill, camera and hack-tool I think that was by far the most satisfying way to finish

Also, once you get your Insect plasmid thing, it makes it a lot easier to clean out rooms. I maxed out all my used plasmids (fire, ice, shock and insect) and it was a blast to playthrough the last couple of levels

Also, when you are in the water levels, spend a little extra time looking for more Adam. It makes it a lot easier for some upgrades.

The graphics are definitely a little jaded, but the game itself is relatively fun.

Reading on the 2K forums the multiplay was fine. Then they patched the game and now the lag is unbearable. It also introduced some bugs to multiplay like you can no longer charge up plasmids. Great work 2K Games great work...
