    Preview: BioShock 2

    Prior to BioShock, the water effects in First-Person Shooters was always kind of, well, average. Lakes, rivers, waterfalls had all been represented in games with vary degrees of success, but they never really looked integrated. It was hard to convince yourself that the pale blue, non-reflective, utterly immobile ocean you were standing next to had taken the developers more than a few minutes to assign to the "too hard" basket, along with presumably their desire to ever really write a story around it. Yeah, Far Cry and HalfLife 2 had some pretty good water effects when BioShock hit the market as well, but it always seemed that BioShock used water as an actual conduit for the story.

    agreed dst, even tho some would say it didnt/doest live up to games such as system shock 2 etc, i found a drive to play the game and enjoy it in amongst the hordes of shit games that are actually out or were released around the same time.

    Bring on travelling underwater in a big daddy suit

    I hope they add more stuff to make this game less linear than the previous entry

    Got bored about halfway through and never ended up completing it

    One of my favourite things in the first was to creatively kill. my favourite recipe was to put a big daddy on ice, liberally apply trapbolts to said big daddy, stand well back and thaw.
    Hopefully number 2 will allow such sadistic pleasure.

    I really didn't like the first one. It felt like a boring, linear console shooter to me, and I could only play 30 mins in before the boredom overcame me and I never played it again.

    :/

    ^Indeed, the game is just a dumbed down ripoff of system shock to me

    I wonder if we're going to see the general gaming forum plastered with 65535 threads about bioshock 2.

    :/

    Intresting story + amazing graphics (especially water), (for a console), (in 07).

    Plasmids made for intresting combat situations.

    Good voice acting.

    I loved every bit of it. (except the insta respawn tanks, made game a bit too easy).

    Now that I've got a PC that can handle it, anyone care to encourage me to try BioShock? Worth playing it prior to the sequel?

    Definitely - just don't mentally compare it to system shock and you'll find it's a decent FPS.

    BioShock is worth the purchase. Get it on PC for best experience.

    If you've never played it before at all, then I think its worth a buy, I thought it was a great game and still is. I'm thinking about buying it for PC now that mine will run it good. I played it on Xbox 360.

    I enjoyed it but went into it knowing it was going to be a dumbed down version of SS2.
    Cant wait for a new Bioshock though.
    its a tossup on this or AVP cause they both come out around the same time dont they?

    The fact Bioshock draws comparisons to SS2 always amuses me. I know it's supposed to be a 'spiritual successor' or whatever, but I can't help but think people are talking themselves out of enjoying it.

    Example:

    "Bioshock is good, but not as good as SS2"

    Now again, but without the SS2 reference:

    "Bioshock is good"

    I enjoyed SS2 as much as anyone back in the day, but I find you can't keep judging everything on games you played 'back in the days', as nostalgia has a habit of twisting them into unstoppable juggernauts of awesome-ness that nothing you play for the rest of your life will stack up to.



    Also looking forward to Bioshock 2, and System Shock 3 if it ever happens.
