About halfway.

No, that's not at all what I'm talking about. I don't mean "technical" gameplay. I just mean that the powers and guns are better balanced and they're more fun to use with better enemy encounters to use your powers/weapons against - stuff like that. GamePLAY, as in design, not frame rate or controls - all that stuff is the same.

I remember preferring the action in B2 as well. Bioshock was a slow build unlocking weapons and abilities and by the time you get them all the game is over. B2 doesn't suffer from that. IIRC you get to be a badass pretty early.

Man, I just got to Fort Frolic in B1, going to look for Cohen, I believe. The intensity and difficulty really ratchets up. They throw so many splicers at you. I got like no ammo and no money to buy ammo...

I never had that problem. I don't think you are exploring areas enough. I actually have issues where I have too much money and am maxed out of both cash and ammo.

Yep same here. I'm always buying stuff I don't need because I have to much money and ammo.

And you'e not bombarded with "Hey go get all this shit for me" like the overrated first game did.

Is the crossbow real useful for something? I just got it, but don't see a use for it really...

For fuck's sake. Just play the goddamn game and experience it however you like. Stop trying to get people to tell you how to experience it.

Can you two set up a YouTube channel where OldBoy fires off questions, and Snake responds? I'm serious, you guys would be swimming in internet money.

On normal difficulty it is just ok...it does not shine until you play on high difficulty....having the ability to one shot many enemies that soak up damage from your other guns is amazing.

Welp, for those like myself who waited on the sidelines for this collection (mostly because I own all of them for the 360) to go to $20...today is your day. X1/PS4, Amazon $20, brand spanking new. GO GO GO!

BB had it for $20 as well after GCU a few weeks ago. That was my buy-in price.
