It was one of the most original, creepy and atmospheric first person shooters to have come out in recent years. Now, the sequel to Bioshock is due to be released sometime in early 2010. So if you’re determined to get your hands on this one as soon as it goes to market, Tesco Direct have the cheapest current pre-order deal.
For £31.97 you can claim a copy of this long awaited follow up, and according to price comparison, this is by far the best deal going with the next cheapest offer coming in at £37.73.
Of course, given the massive popularity of the original Bioshock, developers 2K Marin had their work cut out to produce something capable of living up to the sequel’s epic predecessor. However, emerging details regarding the storyline and gameplay of Bioshock 2 has many fans in uproar. (If you are one of those people who doesn’t want to hear any Bioshock 2 details stop reading now!)
One of the most controversial aspects being the developer's choice to have the player assume the role of Bioshock’s most iconic monster - the Big Daddy. The game still takes place within the confines of Rapture (10 years after Jack’s visit) where the ecosystem has once again been restored. This is the result of a liberated little sister who, unable to make it on the surface, returned to Rapture and began to repopulate it with abducted women from the Atlantic coast.
Over time this little sister becomes a Big Sister, basically a female Big Daddy, who continually stalks the player throughout the game. The player - who assumes the role of a Big Daddy whose conditioning has been broken - is guided by Dr Tenenbaum who begs them to free the little sisters. Unlike the previous game, you can not only choose to harvest little sisters for ADAM but also adopt them. This results in a strong emphasis on escort missions as you protect the little sisters while they withdraw ADAM.
This, more than anything, has fans up in arms, with many arguing that escort missions are the least enjoyable aspect of many first person shooters. However, given the massive success of Bioshock, it seems inevitable that, regardless of what changes the developers make, Bioshock 2 is going to come under fire.
