Product Shot 2 Players control a Big Daddy named Subject Delta and are responsible for eventually overthrowing Lamb and her army of Big Sisters. The action from the original series remains, but a whole slew of new features have been incorporated: dual-wielding weapons, new powers/ammo, a hacking mechanic, and a separate multiplayer mode in which players assume the role of a Plasmid in a sort of prequel based on Rapture’s origins. Additional features include the ability to perform a melee attack with every weapon; the ability to step into the ocean; and regeneration via Vita-Chambers.

Omar: It's boxing day in Canada, and even though I said I wasn't going to be spending much money Rogers Plus was having an INSANE deal where you buy 1 used game and get 2 used games for free. Yes, BUY 1 GET 2 FREE!

Being a mega gamer, how could I turn down such a deal?
