Well done.

I was afraid to watch it in case of spoilers, but then I remember you don't do that.
Heavily

Some minor things I already knew, though.
Like walking in the ocean

Still.
Well done
Same.

Out of interest, what's the multiplayer like? I love the idea of creating my own splicer and then fighting for dominance in a setting as awesome as Rapture...

Again, the familiarity is what kills it a bit. But hey, I could do a lot worse. I have still a lot of games to play, but I will check this and put aside getting Bayonetta. I always crave me more daddies to send to the scrap pile. I wanna ask a question. The only gripe with the original was the last boss. Is that fixed? Cause if it is, I might as well pick it up next week.

I'm renting it then. It'll sell well enough no matter what I do, so I don't care about supporting them financially.

We'll be publishing a multi-player review shortly, once Jordan has had some time with the game.

Good review, but is the voice acting really that much worse? That clip of Augustus Sinclair didn't seem all that bad to me, he may not be as eloquent as Andrew Ryan, but it didn't seem all that bad.

Also, what's your opinion on the multiplayer? I'd very much like to know if it's worth the effort of trying to connect my crappy router to PSN.

Nevermind. :p

I loved the first game, by the sounds of it the sequel is as good as the first but not superior. Which is fine by me, this is my first intended game purchase of the year, and I know I won't regret it.

Is it just me, or did Russ use the words "original game" a bit too much?
But hey, if it's just more Bioshock, God knows it can't be bad.

can't wait, can't wait, can't wait.

Honestly, you could've said that this game was an affront to humanity and gamerdom, and I still would've had to see for myself, since I loved the first one so much.

Ooooh well, that fills me with hope :)

Of course, that's only going off the fact that the previous multiplayers you guys have reviewed seperately have all been big enough to be their own games, but still, hope is there :)

So the eerie big daddy-little sister relationship has been boiled down to a combination of catch them all & timed area defence minigames? The narrative's explanation better be good, otherwise I fear the whole thing sounds like a fan-service circlejerk.

Does it still carry that feeling of 'afraid to step around the next corner."? I remember that I was edging around every single one of them, afraid what would slaughter me next.

(Also, does the insanity still live in the new Rapture? Insane people not restricted by petty laws and such?)

Sounds like a winner. I just might pick this up in the same trip I make to finally acquire Mass Effect 2.

Since when was there a star rating system? Did I miss something?

OT: I haven't played the first one, but I have too many games to get through first. Maybe I should break a leg to get some time to finish Dragon Age.

honestly, this doesn't sound so great...in fact, this sounds like a prettied up vanilla shooter.
and bioshock one was a wee bit shallow to begin with, gameplay-wise.
