Looks good I know story-wise i probably won't like it as much (most sequals are like that) but it seems like it will be an amazing game.

I agree with ya mate. BioShock 1 was one of a few games where I didn't honestly predict where the story was going; the "twist" in it really surprised me.

However, I am really looking forwards to BioShock 2 because its story line seems really, really interesting. Playing as a Big Daddy? Fun!

Ya the big plot twister made me so confused for a while. Story was really well done!

And Yes! I thought it was so cool in the 1st about turning into a big daddy but that didn't last long. Great to see this happen for the Entire game and actually get Big Daddy Weapons!

Yeah they way it happened in the 1st game was kinda lame, all things considered. This one seems much more interesting and well thought out.

Plus who can say no to having a massive drill for an arm?

Exactly! the drill will just be fun by itself

Alot better than running up as a human and wack a man in a giant deep-sea-armored-pressure suit man wielding a drill with... a wrench...

Oh so Intimidating!

Now if we could only convince them to re-do System Shock.

Sigh. One can dream.

Not only did I recently install System Shock 2 for the very first time, I also re-installed the greatest video game of all time onto my computer:

DEUS EX.

System Shock 2 is still very playable, even today. The graphics are obviously dated, but not so much your eyes bleed.

Bioshock is great, but compared to System Shock, Rapture is awfully crowded. I used to love creeping around in SS and SS2 with only the recorded logs and the ghosts to keep me company. Very creepy.

OK, I played through B2 and it was enjoyable, but not head and shoulders above the first title. The ending was much weaker...

Time to sell this puppy.
