Pros
+Great story and atmosphere just like the first game
+Addition of multiplayer versus modes and characters
+Multiple Endings based on a morale decision you make within the game just like the first game
+Minverva's Den DLC features an additional 2-3 single player campaign with a different cast of characters and story

Cons
-Some sound effects do not work at all (this is a known glitch and sadly there is no fix to this) however the DLC sound effects work fine.
-Visuals at certain points in the game look like they are from the 6th gen rather than the 7th gen which Bioshock is from.
-Like the first game some visual effects are in 30 FPS rather than 60 FPS
-Some mechanics from the first game are missing such as the hacking pipes mini game
-At one point in the game there is a sound glitch where it plays the big sister's theme continually until you finish the level
-Some parts in the game felt rushed and out of place - some portions of how some mechanics were introduced were far better represented in the first game than this game such as the introduction of abilities.
