Necro because I finally got around to starting this game.

John's right on the nose about the game basically. Lamb falls completely flat as a villain because there's just no connection between her and Rapture thematically. She is just evil and power hungry and uses religion and pshycology and collectivism as a means to an end, but this doesn't cut to the core of why any of these things can cause a society to fall except that there are potentially manipulative people. Ryan worked because, to the very end, he was a true believer in what he was saying and thematically the entire game revolved around that.

That said, I'm having fun. It's more difficult than the first game and that was a major complaint of mine regarding it. I feel like, on the fundamentals of a "game" this is better. It's just everything else about it is half-baked or straight up copied from the first so overall it's an expected disappointment.

It's like the inverse of the first one. Really good game, mediocre story.
