Their design philosophy sounds fine on paper, but the fact is that story is, at its core, writing; and sure, they can list it as one of six important factors; but the fact is that a game can have poor audio and still tell a great story. A game cannot tell a great story with horrible writing. The writing of Bioware games has become increasingly formulaic in the post Baldur's Gate 2 period; maybe if they focused more on the actual dialog, and not the "digital actors" and camerawork used to shoot the scene, then they could get back on their game.

I've been waiting for an R.E.M. song, and have to admit that I'm dissapointed that they chose "The One I Love"...it's not a BAD song, but compared to most is pretty simplistic and simply not very interesting.

Console gamers are getting screwed here.

WHY WHY WHY While I remain skeptical of the movie, it seems like they're at least TRYING to be faithful to the comic. But giving the game rights to these guys? What are they thinking?

I'd buy this if it had Monkey Island on it...

Great game, but it's heavily reliant on The Longest Journey for background, and I imagine few people buying this on Xbox will have played that game.

I don't consider Bioshock 2 to be "good news". Even if you like the first game (I didn't, for various reasons), it was a self-contained adventure - a sequel just doesn't make much sense. What, there's ANOTHER underwater city build by an Objectivist? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Ah, so THIS is why Bioshock's story had the depth and moral complexity of a Choose Your Own Adventure.

Good riddance. No more horrific MI5 jokes.
