I just gotta get this, millions of times better 100% Compated to Bioshock on PC and that was a great game for its time, this looks amazing & gameplay changes are for the best IMO. I loke the option to Plasma & Drill Gun - Dual Weild adds a lot to the game play, this game also has a much better story, so you dont have to rush in & kill, play slowly and learn, become a brilliant player. Start killing, love it & chase after the 4 Sisters, the evil looking little Doll Girls, here comes the twist, in Bioshock again we had to follow little sisters, but in this game, they are Evil Sisters (Bosses) They are fast, frantick and sometimes very hard beleive me. As the story goes along & you find the sisters around sopher Lauran, kill the bosses & you get hints on your personal story, they also give you gifts to help you along, 1 example, the Train to travel fast to different places (mush more). From what I have played on PS3 its brilliant & no rahical issues, bugs or loss of framerate (a little in intence battles). I hope my comments help you, im allways happy to help if i can. Steve.

Woah! Looks even better than their first video previews! I love how the editors have been listening to what people want and how much they care about the game. Seems like they haven't forgotten anything! Feb 9th can't come quickly enough!! Already pre-ordered it! :)

The flashlight is the last thing you need here. Environments are so dense and colorful that the flashlight will be the odd one out. I'm really looking forward for this game, and the February 9 is going to be a special Day.

I'm iffy on this whole thing. I loved Bioshock 1 but I'm wondering if this story can live up to just half of the shock that everyone got when you found out that you were a mind controlled clone. Also I could careless about Bioshock multiplayer. It looks okay at best and taking photos looked easy but really I think while trying to get a photo of a dead enemy you'll be a vulnerable easy kill. I'll rent it for sure but I don't know. If you know more on the story tell me because it looks great but I think I can piece it together but like the first one it had huge twists.

Just looks so damn good. The original is probably on top of my all time favorites list, and this sequel just feels like it's going to trump even that.

Bioshock is like the best game since Half-Life 2. i can't wait for the multiplayer though!!!! also, i got creeped out in the first game, but now as big daddy, i think i might find it not so scary.
