Specially after all the thought that went into the plot...

Afterall, if the first had a begining, middle and as reported here, tidy end do you need to have played it to understand and enjoy this new game?

Not to poo-poo what you're saying (because it's an opinion I do at least somewhat agree with) to say that BioShock borrowed tactics from Doom 3 is a little wrong. Mainly, because Doom 3 wasn't the first to do the audio recording nonsense (System Shock 2 definitely did it before, but so did a lot of other games, including IIRC Pathways into Darkness on the Mac), but also because it wasn't critical to how BioShock told the story. You could skip everything in those diaries and still understand everything - it was extra content, not critical exposition.

Quick saves and checkpoints restore the enemies you killed prior to dying; Vita-chambers don't.

it's stupid to compare the Bioshock series to System shock 2 or HL2.......
