if not more so", and that the two titles are "as inseparable as Daddy and Sister".[47] PlayStation: The Official Magazine awarded BioShock 2 a perfect score of 5/5. Official Xbox Magazine awarded the game a 9.5/10, stating that the game is "Dripping with atmosphere and quality; good story with a terrific ending; good gameplay tweaks".[citation needed] IGN has given the game a 9.1/10, stating that "anyone looking for a first-person shooter that offers more than flat, stereotypical characters and copy-and-paste supersoldier plots, one that attempts to establish a sense of right and wrong and loops you into the decision making process, and one that's set in one of the most vividly realized settings around should pick up BioShock 2. It's a game in which story, setting, and gameplay are expertly blended to create an experience that's as thought-provoking as it is entertaining".[48]
Lacking gamepad support, the PC version was met with some controversy. .2K Games has been unclear as to the real reason of the decision to remove the feature.^ Of course Bioshock II should feature the great polish that the first game did, as 2K studios is very detailed when it comes to it's mapping.
