I'm not all that impressed yet. It also didn't help that I had to fight with GFWL for ages until I finally found out that I had to forward a few ports to get the damn thing to actually log in. The game is fun so far, but it feels pretty much the same as the original. And it doesn't help that the graphics are awful by current standards.

Verdict: alright. The game itself is petty good, but I kind of wish I had waited for it to drop in price. Even with the discount I got from buying into a 4-pack, I feel like I overpaid.

Just got my copy on steam, will be playing hopefully in an hour or so. 2.5MB/s steady DL rate which is pretty sweet too.

I didn't expect BS2 to be spectacularily different. About an hour into the game and happy with it's performance. Trippy game and eerie Sound Effects still good.

Yes I noticed the patch when I started the game today. I ignored twice looking for info on wth it does. Nothing on GFWL, nothing on 2K and nothing on any sites I checked? Gotta love the ambiguous "patch".

Well I got it anyways as I got tired of the dumb notice when I start the game. I noticed nothing but I haven't tried MP yet either.

I just finished the game, I thought it was just as good as the first. Multiplayer was extremely laggy for me, wired or wireless, which is a shame.

Two splicers just kept attacking this Bouncer. He wouldn't take any damage and was stuck floating above the stage. That is until I came closer >: He magically became mobile again. At least he took care of the Spider splicer for me. But this kind of quirky stuff happens a lot in this game. :\

I'm at this part where this goofy ass gyro with an eyeball is following you around and I'm pretty bored with the game :(

I find its EXACTLY the same except a different setting.

You try to figure out who did what then finish the game.

I find so many of the plasmids aren't ever really used and anti-personell rounds are your friend.

The camera is kind of annoying too :(
