For some, myself included, the return to Rapture in Bioshock 2 can't come quickly enough. The original was a masterclass in game world design, where your surroundings heaved with personality, atmosphere and character. If Bioshock 2 is even half the game of its predecessor, then it should be an absolute barnstormer.
Fans itching for more of the fallen underwater utopia, but somewhat deterred by the £60 price point for the Collectors Edition, might be interested in this little exclusive from Zavvi. For just £29.95 you can pick up of a copy of the game, and it also comes bundled with a 96 page hardback book entitled Deco Devolution - The Art of Bioshock 2. The cheapest price at the moment for the standalone game is £29.89 from Simply Games, but if you fancy chipping in that extra 6p you'll snag yourself a sweet, exclusive, arty treat.

Bioshock 2 takes place a decade after the events of the original and you find yourself stepping into the shoes of a first generation Black-and-Decker limbed Big Daddy, reanimated but bereft of memories of the past ten years. What starts out as a futile search across Rapture to try and locate the Little Sister with whom he was paired turns into a fight for Rapture's future as you attempt to overthrow new leader Sofia Lamb and her army of nasty Big Sisters.
I loved the original and cannot wait for this to come out in a few days time on the 9th, and early reports are suggesting that this game is just as good as its older sibling if not better, which excites me greatly.
