I want shark nunchucks. They're unstoppable

I will buy this for new spots and online challenges. Been playing the first and second to shreds, and it'll be good to see a new city.

I'm happy that it's coming out on the PS3. 2010 is going to be a great (albeit expensive) year methinks.

a long story about his acquisition and impressions of the game.
Good post.  What about if I didn't enjoy Bioshock tooo much? I liked the setting, story etc but the gameplay felt really clunky. Does the shooting still feel kind of... last-gen? And is it much better with duel plasmids and weapons? "
Thanks.
I'm not a connoisseur when it comes to FPS games on consoles. All games feel clunky to me without a mouse, but at least Bioshock 1 and 2 didn't force me to put the game down in frustration.
The dual wielding makes the sequel for me. It's that little improvement you didn't know you missed until it's there and now I couldn't imagine playing without it.
The hacking minigames have also improved, and although I enjoyed the puzzles from the original, they did get a bit old towards the end of the game. 
All in all I feel that the gameplay have improved, and the story is still enough to keep me around 'til the end of the game. And with the amount of games on my shelf waiting to be finished, that's probably one of the best endorsements I can give to any game today.
 
Someone in this thread said that this sequel feels more like an expansion than a sequel, and while I totally understand the sentiment, I must respectfully disagree. A lot of bits and pieces have been modified and (for the most part) improved, the mythology have been expanded and you're playing as an effen Big Daddy, ferchrissakes. 
 
The Big Daddy felt a little bit weak at the start of the game, but as soon as you get familiar with him, and are able to charge, Subject Delta satisfies and delivers on a grand scale. I still jump in my chair when I see my own shadow :-)

I borrowed the first one from a friend, played part of it, enjoyed it and forgot about it.
The other day, however, I went to my local Gamestop to get rid of some crap that've been cluttering my shelves for a long time. Long story short, thanks to a special offer i ended up pre-ordering Bioshock 2 (special edition cause I love me some vinyl) the day before release and found my self spending the entire night finishing the first game. Just to be ready for a game I bought on impulse.
 
Now, due to my playing the first game in two intense sittings nearly a year a part, the finer points of the story was sadly lost on me. I probably missed out on a lot of the back story, but I enjoyed what I got. I liked the setting and the gameplay, but If it wasn't for the special offer, I probably wouldn't have bought the sequel, or even finished the first one.
 
But boy, am I happy I did. Even though the twist couldn't be more obvious if hit you in the face with a wrench, the first game won me over big time. And IMO the sequel improves on what was good, and does away with much of the minutia that annoyed me with the original. Since I literally finished the game mere hours before picking up number 2 my judgment is not clouded by nostalgia, and I'm looking forward to spending many more hours in Rapture, both through single- and multiplayer.
 
If you enjoyed the original, you'll probably not be disappointed by this one.

I'm kinda scared that this game might make me play an MMO. I'm to old for that shit, dammit!
