Default BioShock sequel confirmed

Take-Two Interactive confirmed that plans for a sequel for the successful “BioShock” video game are already on the drawing board for a future game release. In response to a question during a recent investor conference call, Take-Two Chairman Strauss Zelnick indicated that a two-year cycle is about the right time frame for most game franchises before a sequel is launched. And, while you are waiting the estimated 24 months before the launch of a BioShock sequel, it is good to note that BioShock has sold an amazing 1.5 million units since its launch roughly three weeks ago. These numbers are pretty strong to ensure the launch of a new franchise title. No additional details were released as to what the sequel might be titled or the contents of its story line.

Played through a few levels now, don't know, I think it was hyped too much, expecting too much here. Repetitive gameplay shooter wise, guns are not really convincing... don't think I'll finish this game.

it really isn't a perfect 10 it got in many reviews, same with QW which doesn't deserve a single award it got


WiC looks like it could justify that perfect 10 tough, with a good SP and an absolute asswhooping MP

I guess I can see that. Though Im not that far into it (just got telekinesis plasmid) and am still really digging the atmosphere- mid-20th century setting, water effects, voice acting, sounds. Quite pretty, immersive and fun. Hopefully that lasts.

yes the game has a very impressive first 30min, but then gameplay tends to become quite repetitive, and you start wanting large open space to pop up at some time... HL2 did a better mix of inside/outside area.

here's a fun review of the game
