Watch BioShock 2 In Action. Right Now!

GameTrailers has the first footage of 2K Marin's anticipated sequel under the sea.

Not much to comment on here. GameTrailers got the exclusive on the first gameplay footage from BioShock 2, so watch the video below, or hit the High Def link in the player to head over to their site and look at a bigger, prettier version.

  



Truthfully, I'm refraining from saying much here because we got a look at BioShock 2 ourselves recently and are under obligation not to discuss it just yet. So, hey, what do you think about this footage?

It looks a lot like Bioshock.

If GiantBomb were BioShock Ryan and Jeff would be Big Daddies and Vinny and Brad would be Little Sisters.

Looks pretty cool... Not as excited to play the game as the first though.

I don't know what I was expecting, but the footage looks so similar to Bioshock 1 that I am less excited now then before I watched the footage.

O MY GODDDDDD

I'm so excited. It looks stinking awesome.

Looks sweet!

Looks great.

Got a bad feeling it's gonna suck.

Actually it makes no sense. Why does he have a drill and a gun on the same arm?

Posted by LiveOrDie1212

while i feel the sequel is kinda forced, i must say that those underwater effects are pretty awesome.

I'm pretty sure the graffiti on the wall says "We will be reborn in the womb of the ocean." Right?

It looks cool, like the audio at the end. Officially hyped. :D

Do you guys have to support GameTrailers? le sigh. Compressed, shit quality put up by a bung of idiots obsessed with the female body.
You guys better have a quick look for this game when its release comes up! And it better be like, an hour long. Looks so kick ass, but I hope they make the drill melee more then just a punch. I want gore, I want drilling, I want bad ass chainsaw equivalince!

And JESUS. the underwater part looks incredible. If this game doesn't have like, characters actually getting wet (ie Drakes Fortune) and geometric, dynamic water surfaces. The first game had great water, but it wasn't dynamic or anything.

I looks EXACTLY like the first Bioshock, hopefully this isn't just a rushed sequel. I mean, come on, at least try to make the game look a little better.

Posted by HatKing

It looks like Bioshock(1) minus the awesome story and cool effects of having bees come straight out of your arm.  Seriously Bioshock might be my favorite game of all time but this just doesn't look that great.  This seems like some stupid idea a little kid had after playing Bioshock for ten minutes.  I hope I'm wrong.

Posted by BaconGames

I kinda don't want to go back to Rapture.  I loved Bioshock but I feel like to see the same setting again will make it get older a bit quicker. 

However if they address enough little stuff, and overall just improve the feel of the shooting (which I can even see from the trailer), then I'm all for it.  I feel like they could take the concept further and if the setting is the thing that stays the same, fine with me.

Looks like Bioshock 1 just smoother, better effects, and hopefully from what i'm seeing better gun play. Frankly i dont know how the hell are they gonna put a story as good as the first into this one, and the fact that the original team isnt working on this one does cast doubts on its success. 

Posted by Linkyshinks

I think it looks fantastic, the animation on characters seems to be notably smoother and effect much improved.  Take those water effects after that submersion for example, those are beautiful, you gotta love the amount of particles, and the effect it creates.

Impressive, so much so when I saw it earlier this morning I wished the original had an engine so refined.

So it does.
Posted by TwoOneFive

meh. i dunno. 

Posted by MeatSim

Yea that looks like Bioshock and awesome looking as ever.

Posted by Media_Master

Hey, its Bioshock....2~~!!!!! YES!

Posted by ZeroCast

No HatKing, you're wrong.

We have barely seen anything from the game yet and you're already calling it a stupid idea, you wanna know what's a stupid idea?

Spouting shit you know nothing about.

Posted by BigBoss1911

Im kinda of dissapointed.

Edited by Roger_Klotz

I just bioshocked in my pants right now.

Posted by TripMasterMunky

Looks exactly like BioShock. So...take it or leave it. Also I thought that last line at the end was pretty cheesy lol.

Posted by JazzyJeff

We'll see how this one goes. Ken Levine isn't working on it, so I'm a bit skeptical

Edited by Linkyshinks

lol @ some of the posts above.

We know absolutely nothing about how well it's story here is crafted, but given the emphasis on story in the last game, I think it's safe to assume the writers have applied equal focus to it in this game. This game could be awesome in that aspect, and most likely will be. If your going to judge the sequel solely on your thoughts that a sequel should never have been made, well that's silly, you don't know the story, and how gameplay will be effected for better or worse.

I have gotten over my initial dislike of the idea, I suggest other fans try to also, keep an open mind about what this game could possily offer, it could well improve upon many aspects of the original.




Posted by CoinMatze

I'm still not in line with the concept. Jack (?) from Bioshock was already pretty faceless but playing a Big Daddy? Where's the emotional attachment in that? I hope this game will hit me and my stupid assumptions in the face with a great story.
But hey: It's still Bioshock and Rapture still looks awesome.

Posted by Hamst3r

Looks awesome-tastic. I want moar Bioshawk! :D

Posted by FraggingRights

I just don't know how to feel about this game... Playing as a Big Daddy and RETURNING to rapture... Seems like a cop out

Posted by Coltonio7

Holy shit.

They made the last quarter of the game, except awesome.

Posted by Nate

Yep. Looks like Bioshock. To be honest, I'm just excited for the creepy new environments, being immersed in that ambiance, and of course the twists of an awesome story line this game is sure to have.

Posted by Jared

Excellent, I can't wait for this!

Posted by darkjester74

I'm super stoked!  Cant wait to dive back into Rapture!  HOOYAH!

Posted by cjmhockey

I thoroughly enjoyed the first Bioshock... I wasn't too sure about a sequel to Bioshock but after seeing that video I am officially hyped about Bioshock 2.

Posted by Kilzombie

It looks alot like Bioshock, I'm not getting hyped for this yet, feels like more of the same, which is fine, but I just want to see something different this time.

Posted by Serker

the splicers look less cartoonish and more "human" and Rapture just seems BIGGER. i really love how this looks so far.

Posted by Milkman

I don't care what anyone says. That looked awesome.

Posted by ShadowKiller

This game looks awesome! But am I the only one that noticed the drill isn't actually attached to this Big Daddies arm when he's flailing in the water.

Posted by mysteriousfox

So you're what? A Bigger Daddy? The Biggest Daddy? Now with interchangable parts, faster-than-plodding speed, and karate chop action!

Sure, it looks like Bioshock - but does it It looks like bioshock in the same way that Gears of War two looks like Gears of War one?

Posted by Alexander

Looks like an expansion pack; same environment, similar weapons, graphics...

Posted by Derios

Hope for some underwater boss fights. Those always freak me out.

Posted by wrecks

Yup, that looks like Bioshock alright.

Posted by Snail

It's just Bioshock but with diving suit , and a ninja sister to attract stupid 12 year olds.

Woopee-dee-fucking-whoo
