Bioshock 2 Lands Worldwide Launch Date Of February 9

We almost forgot about it after it disappeared out of 2009, but now that it has reappeared on the radar, we quickly and easily recall the excellent experience the original provided.

2K Games has announced that Bioshock 2, the hotly anticipated sequel to one of the most popular and critically acclaimed titles of the generation, will be available worldwide on February 9, 2010. According to the press release, this new story will feature "two unique, yet intertwined experiences that form the perfect blend of explosive first-person shooter combat, compelling storytelling and intense multiplayer action." This is a true sequel in that the setting is a decade after the events of the first Bioshock; a mysterious monster has been snatching little girls out of their beds at night and dragging them back to the undersea city, Rapture. Players will actually assume the role "of the most iconic denizen of Rapture, the Big Daddy," in their quest to discover the truth. Multiplayer will be an entirely different beast; this will have you playing as a Plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions, and "you will need to use all the elements of the Bioshock toolset to survive." Without a doubt, this is one of our most anticipated games, just because the first was so damn awesome.

For more details and media, head over to the game's official website, as well as the thought-provoking SomethingInTheSea.com.

i played the first one it's not as good as they make it out to be, still pretty good though, but it's worth checking out nonetheless.

I agree. I played it for the first time a few months ago and I thought it was a pretty generic shooter. It had a unique setting, but I thought the story was kind of pedestrian. Maybe it seemed more impressive when it launched way back then, but I was expecting more.

Yea, I was very underwhelmed by just about every aspect of it. Then again, I never played more that 6 or so hours into it. Maybe it got better later.

The shooting mechanincs were just awful, and I thought it looked pretty poor technically.

@PearJammer - You fought the same handful of bad guys over and over, the picture taking was unappealing and the safe opening pipe mini-games were annoying and out of place. I think it was a little over hyped because it was an early 360 exclusive. It was just OK for me.

I still need to complete the firstgame. not sure why i just stopped playing it. I think it may have something to do with the long wait when i finally got it i just got sick of it. Its a good game though.

Same here. I got Bioshock to tide me over while I waited for Killzone 2. Stopped playing it when KZ2 came out and at that point I was sick of FPS. I've been in te mood for a FPS again, but now Bioshock has taken a back seat to Metroid Prime Trilogy. =P my wife keeps bugging me to finish Bioshock. At the rate that these good Sony exclusives are coming out, finishing Bioshock before Bioshock 2 doesnt seem likely.

Actually I think the only reason she wants me to finish Bioshock is because she's tired of watching me play infamous, killzone 2, metal gear solid 4 and all the other addictive PS3 exclusives. =P Bioshock is pretty much the only game I haven't finished in my library.

The first one is a great game and if you haven't played it don't let anyone tell you otherwise. A definite must play, great graphics, sound, story, on my alltime list of great games. Any one who likes shooters or RPG's should at least give it a try. I demolished the Xbox version just had 2 or 3 more Achievments left. Got the PS3 version new on a steal waiting for another run through before the sequel hits. Great news, now I can run through these Jan - Feb and begin my conquest of Olympus in March with GoW 1-3. Ahh the gaming life is looking good for the next 6 months to year, now I just need Demon Souls to hurry up.

I pick the first one up from time to time but it's not as great as all the reviews say it is. Can't imagine whats really gonna separate the new one from the first one if you're still playin in Rapture. I imagine the map won't be much different and you'll probably feel like you're just playing extra content rather then a sequel??!! Also can't see how playin as a Big Daddys gonna be alot of fun, they're too damn slow and clumsy (ok they still manage to kick ass somehow) but maybe I'm just not really gettin it, whatever 'it' is that I'm supposed to get?!

Not all games that use Unreal look UnGood. I thought Arkhum Asylum looked amazing. It's had a lot of refinements over the years too.

so i ant get into the forums apparently im not aloud to post there lol????

so im asking here! i found a logitech race wheel... i do not know which model it is, at first i though it was the g25 but later found out they also make a lower model the gt!

my question is im looking into getting a hweel but not at a hefty $300... the wheel i found is at a good price but if it turns out to be the gt is it worth getting and will i enjoy it as much or even enjoy using it at all? or should i pass on it completely and just wait til i find a g25?

im wanting it for gt5 and i want to experience a real good wheel, and actually enjoy using it, if i wont get that from the gt tell me cus i will easily pass on it if this turns out to be the gt!

thanks guys again sorry to be off topic but i cant post in the forums for whetever reason!

I tried the demo a few times on the 360, then I tried a few more times on my PS3, I wanted to like this but I could'nt get into it, hell I couldn't get through the demo it seem to bore me. Fallout 3 on the other hand I can't get enough of, I should have got this game when it came out in stead of last week either way great game so far.

well my bday is a few days before this games launch so i may just have to make this one of my presents on preorder. the first one was really fun. i see the comments about it being a genaric shooter but i didnt feel that way at all. i dont go for many of the big hyped fps (i will be passing on mw2 just like i have passed on every other CoD) but this game really made me want to keep playing.

off topic but is anyone else still having problems with their dualshocks even after v. 3.01? my dualshock keeps losing sync with the ps3. as far as i can tell its only after a system time out.

Wow, so many good games coming in on 2010. As much as I enjoyed the first Bioshock, I won't be getting the sequel of it. I'll be buying Star Ocean instead of Bioshock 2.

It's going to be the most expensive 1Q ever in 2010 from a gamer perspective. It starts at the beginning of January with Bayonetta and ends with God of War in March for me.

There are other games higher up my priority list.
Especially if FF13 hits home early.

I liked the first one a lot. I wasn't expecting much, though because I'm not a big FPS fan. If you go in not expecting too much, the game was great. The surround sound was pretty freaky, too. My gripe was that it was very short. Worth the time to play it through (I did twice) and the price is right now. I'll pick up part 2 and probably still have plenty of time before FFXIII and GOW III gets to me.

I didn't like Bioshock, maybe because I got to played it a year later?. Maybe it was big because PS3 did't have alot of AAA like it does now. Maybe putting gamers first over $$$$ is a wiser option.

Can't believe the lack of love for it around here. I'm pretty picky when it comes to FPSs but the story, atmosphere, and plasmids put it way above the comparatively bland CoD4 for me, though I agree it could have used more different enemies. Even beat it on the extra hard difficulty.
Might not get the sequel day 1 but it's definitely a must-buy.

While I was upset when the game was announced to be pushed back a bit ago, I am now a bit more relieved. As much as I love the first one (beat it 1100 achievement points on 360, then bought it for PS3 and got my platinum), I know I am going to love the 2nd one. So, with so many games coming out in the last quarter of this year, pushing this one to Feb. will allow me to enjoy it more, once I've beaten all the games coming out soon.
