Sounds like it is going to play just like Bioshock.
The 1st games was somethong fresh and new and they should have left it there as stated in this preview.

Woohoo. Another linear shooter pretending to be an RPG that moves slower than an impacted bowel and thinks Ayn Rand plus Fallout equals clever.

Ah well. I wouldn't wish unemployment on these guys, the first Bioshock was at least a half decent System Shock 2 remake, even if they did forget to add any difficulty, and if this kind of refried drek keeps them in business until somebody thinks of something new then fair play to them.

Sounds like they're useing the success of Bioshock to flog a few copies of a totally unrelated game, bit like what Crytek did with FarCry 2.

Crytek didn't make Far Cry 2 and had no involvement in it at all.

It was done by Ubisoft.

never underestimate the stupidity of the uneducated masses, its unfortunate the majority of them are console gamers.

True, but the original game sold a truckload of copies so it's unsurprising that they want to capitalize on it as much as possible

Was amazed by the first (although it was by no means in the leagues of SS2), enjoyed the second quite a lot (plasmids and weapons at the same time just felt a lot better), but tbh this is looking a little stale and boring now.

Not excited, but I will see what reviews say when it comes out.

Well I'm looking forward to it, I enjoyed the last two Bioshock games and I'm sure I'll enjoy this.

Crows instead of Bees?! I'm not sure what which of the two would terrify me more.

On the other hand, it does look like more of the same with a new setting and residents that aren't as psychotic. I might pick it up cheap unless it pulls something out of the bag between now and release, I don't hold much hope for that happening though.

just because its not a new premise doesn't mean it not going to be entertaining...

Watching the 'gameplay' movie was very confusing...

I'm interested in this game. One question though, if you ever get to play the pc version before release (not likely) with a Keyboard and mouse could you tell me how it feels?
Bioshock 1+2 felt awful with KB/M. I finished both games and didn't feel "comfortable" the whole way through both. They were clearly designed very much with a joypad in mind as the primary controller and I hated just how bad the PC controls felt.

Did you actually get to play the game Joe? It's a very short preview and it reads more like you watched a demonstration by the dev then a hands on experience.

I played the first one when it came out, but I didn't finish it. I enjoyed it a lot and will probably try and complete the first and second Bioshock games before playing infinite.

Brings to mind X-Com: Terror From The Deep.

Cmon, are you serious? Games are still going for the gravity gun of Half Life 2. Instead of the gravity gun there's a magic hand. So sad that they can't come up with something new and brilliant. Other than that it looks awesome.

This video has 15 minutes of gameplay and has been out for months:

That footage is impressive , with the jump timing element, it kinda looks like what a puzzle-platformer would in 3D combined with a shooter. However, the likelihood is, it'll be dumbed down to the point where it feels linear and boring by release. There's more creativity in some of the recent 2D puzzle-platformer games than a dozen AAA titles imho.

yeah the only bioshock that was any good was the first one imo.. something about that irish guy and then hitting him with the golf club that stuck in my brain xD

If it's a rehash of Bioshock then I'm fine with that. I really liked the first game. Although I would have appreciated a more PC like feel that the console port feel, although I will say it's one of only ports I've enjoyed playing besides Halo.

I know, I'm weird.

All I have to say about bioshock infinite is HELLLLLOOOO ELIZABETH!

check out the previews on CVG they paint a much better picture.

I can't say I ever felt bioshock deserved the scores it received but still thoroughly enjoyed it, and its sequel, because I felt the concept and setting were interesting enough to hold my attention. I'm willing to overlook the similarities and difficulty issues because the aesthetic and art deco style made rapture worth exploring. If they can get look and feel right in this I'm sure it'll be worth a look, if nothing else.
