"Rapture is an enticing place for gamers: Its an underwater Art Deco city knee-deep in psychopaths looking for original ways to die. The question that comes to mind today as multiplayer screens were revealed is whether fans of the original care enough for what many are considering a disastrous return to Rapture. Forums across the net are piping hot with predictions of failure on behalf of 2k Marin. Considering that the that the original game's auteur Ken Levine isn't involved at all in the sequel, one would imagine that the insurmountable pressure on the developers at 2k Marin is rather daunting."
