EndSights: "With word coming today that BioShock 2 now has four different development houses (2K Marin, 2K Australia, Digital Extremes, Arkane Studios) working on the title, the question must be asked: What's wrong with BioShock 2?"
2 big differences. Now they are shoe-horning in multiplayer so they are rushing and doing whatever they can just to get the game done. So you get your MP but the entire game suffers for it. ugh. Also the PS3 was not involved when the first Bioshock released and now it is. We know what kind of problems the PS3 can cause developers and we know how Bioshock ran on the PS3 with missing textures and the like. What a shame that in an attempt to wh0re this great game out they are just putting a bullet in its head. I am trying to stay optimistic since I loved the first one but lots of red flags at the moment for this sequel.
Dude, you're going to get ripped apart for even suggesting that the PS3 is a detriment to the development of a game.
you started out great with your first paragraph then you f!cked it up when you had to involve your [email protected]
Was one of the best experiences I have ever had on a console in terms of its unique narrative, art style and gameplay (even though it didn't innovate the first person genre)I can only hope that Bioshock 2 maintains the standards set by the first game. I have no idea whether this will happen or not but I'm hoping.
First game sucked, so I couldn't care less about a sequel. Bioshock is an example of what's wrong with games today. All the developer had done was hype "innovation" and "something you've never played before". When all that was done was a copy+paste job of System Shock 2. Right down the same plot twists, but with dumbed down gameplay.
@free: If BioShock is what's wrong with games today, I don't know what's right.
The fact that they added multiplayer is whats wrong.
I'm really tninking about getting this game
A late game can still be great...a bad game released on time is still bad.
i'm not even buying Bioshock 2 it wont feel the same since the original team is long gone..
No, it's likely to feel exactly the same as the first one, that's the problem.
Not exactly true. 2K Marin is composed of a lot of the 2K Boston guys and gals that worked on the game.
i still have faith that it's going to be a good game.
Whoever this ART GREEN FROM ENDSIGHTS.COM is, he needs to go back to journalism scool because he cant spell for nothing and his grammar was bad too. Yucky website that is on the bottom of the barrel of the internet.
I'm definitely skeptical as well. But I have a feeling they'll pull through in the end.
No matter how many facilities are producing the game, I still think Bioshock 2 will end up being yet another sequel that disappoints, as even if (on its own) it's a good game, it'll never live up to the original, imho.
It's definitely a steep hill for them to climb, but I think it was doable. Now, I don't know. :S
