    I have it on order mate. Bioshock was the best game I have ever played but I fear 2 won't have the same effect because it's not a new concept. It'll still be great though.

    Why is it so cheap though? COD MW2 is still selling at 40 quid but I paid £34.49 for B2!

    The first one is one of my favourite games ever. I've got Bioshock 2 but won't get chance to play it until the weekend. :motz:

    Reviews so far seem to be saying that it's really good but can't quite live up to the first one.

    That's to be expected really. The first was just so bloody good. I haven't played any other game where there are so many ways to kill enemies and that's what made it so enjoyable.

    B2 is now here :happy:

    welli played the single player last night and it gets 9.5/10 the enviroments the storyline and the detail all folows the foundations of the old bioshock, it feels less daunting when you consider that you are the big daddy so i found compared to the first game its more like youre the hunter now as opposed to the prey, dual wielding is fantastic and is one of the things i thought the game should have had from the begining. being able to remotely hack while on the move is a large improvement as now you can hack sentries as theyre attacking you and get the upper hand on a large battle. the controls are great and just as i imagined that they'd b mapped out.

    i cant wait to get back inside rapture tonight!

    Likewise. The missus is away all day being pampered at some hotel/spa thing so it's Bioshock 2 all day with a bit of Mass Effect 2 thrown in when I need a break. :rockwoot:

    I finished mass effect 2 last weekend, and i am playing Bioshco 2 right now. Both are great games, but as has been said they dont bring enough thats new to really blow your socks off like both originals did.

    I have FF13 on pre-order, now that should be interesting.

    Anyone noticed how the mags are getting slower at reviewing as well. I buy most games on pre-order, and i usually get them before i see a review..........kind of defeats the objuect of the mag IMO.

    I am not that far in yet, but i had to get a key off a big fat bird in a bar last night. The whole level had some stupid squeaky violin music in it, it drove me mad.....
