I've got to admit, I was extremely excited to hear there was a planned sequel for one of my favorite games, BioShock. However, the excitement quickly subsided upon information that BioShock 2 would actually be a sequel. To me, it doesn't feel like there's much left to be done with the original BioShock storyline after the events fo the original game. I feel BioShock 2 would have been a lot of fun had it been a prequel. Could you imagine starting the game viewing the magnificence of the once eutopian Rapture?
I think the game would have heavily benefited from the strong sense of dramatic irony gamer-end while watching rapture quickly crumble. Imagine entering Rapture as plasmids were beginning to get out of control. I mean, you could have even played the part of assisting Andrew Ryan and eventually become a Big Daddy or something of the like. My point being, they could have still put you behind the roll of Big Daddy without putting you in a predictably lame sequel.
They even could have introduced a new city altogether. Perhaps a Rapture created for the moon by Ryan's predecessor? There was so much room for Bio Shock 2 to be great. As a fan, I'm left feeling sorely disappointed in what I've read, heard and seen about the game. Let's hope 2K has an ace in the hole with this one.
