Are you ready for Bioshock 2!? I know I am, this game looks freaking incredible! The launch trailer was released recently and it looks absolutely fantastic, it definitely has a epic feel to it. I seriously can't wait to play this game. I'm a big fan of the original and word on the street is this sequel blows the original away. This is such a cool video game franchise, I love the designs and the story is great.
Set on New Year's Eve of 1970, ten years after the events of BioShock, Rapture is now under the control of a woman named Sofia Lamb, whose ideas of human progression contrasts with the city's deceased founder, Andrew Ryan. While Ryan believed in the genius of the individual, Lamb believes in collective effort and the power of the community, as well as a philosophy surrounding butterfly imagery, indicating some kind of rebirth. This message is spread by a deranged ex-priest named Father Wales, who has created a cult-like religion around Sofia. During Sofia's rule, a mysterious figure known as the Big Sister, an ex-little sister outfitted with Big Daddy armor, harbored herself in Rapture, capturing little girls across the coastline to turn them into Little Sisters. Now, the original Big Sister has disappeared, and the remaining Big Sisters are employed by Sofia to keep order in the city.
The game is being met with some very positive reviews all pointing toward the fact that Bioshock 2 is better than the original. Most major gaming magazines have given the game a 90% average rating, saying that it "tops the original in terms of storytelling and combat", that "it's still better written than pretty much anything else out there", and that the game is more engrossingly mysterious than the original.
The game is set to be release February 9th. Check out the launch trailer for the game below and tell us what you think!
