"Take-Two recently confirmed that a sequel to 2007 game of the year contender BioShock is hot in development at 2K Marin - a new studio set up especially for the follow-up. But after the near perfect shooter experience that was our first submerse into Rapture, isn't it time for a change of scenery for BioShock?
Rapture is definitely one of the greatest ever triumphs in gaming environments. The moody dystopian corridors, submerged ball rooms and horribly unsettling 1930s art deco are refreshingly unique for a first-person shooter (and there isn't a space marine in sight), and we absolutely loved exploring the damp corridors and mentalist-filled dentist offices.
But the thing is, we don't really know if we want to go back. Rapture's story has pretty much been cleaned up through both the events of the first BioShock and the rich back story laid out in recordings and memos scattered around the city.
If the sequel were to return to the underwater dystopia, surely all it'd succeed in doing is cheapening the events of the original game, like Blair Witch 2 starring Angelina Jolie as the all-singing, all-dancing Witch."
