Figures they use the boring, annoying and tired gameplay mechanic of we give you super powers, but can't think of a clever way to challenge you so were just going to give the enemies the same powers.  Something about this game makes me really angry.

The trailer was cool, but I don't think the game will look that good when you actually play it.
 
Also, I can only ever see bomberman in the big daddy you play as, it cannot be unseen.

Liked the ballroom ghosts (now I want to ride the Haunted Mansion at Disney World). The soundtrack was good, but as far as trailers go there is no topping "Beyond the Sea." They sure are using that trick where the water rushes into the room a lot though, right? And where are the new plasmids?
 
Still better than a multiplayer trailer though, and if that main character isn't Bomberman then I'm the Duke of Manchuria.

What?
 
I mean... what? That's a tired gameplay mechanic? Can you name some other games with it?
 
Not to mention it's more interesting if the enemies use these new powers and use them well.

Looks great, though the CG obviously hides any gameplay footage. Still, I preordered it and am pumped to play it.

Cool trailer, but I would have preferred gameplay footage or something like that. I'm still not sure about this game.

Nice trailer, but doesn't seem all too interesting. I'll definitely wait until reviews come out. And even then, I'll wait a while if I ever get it.

Can't wait for this. The trailer was great, got the Rapture Edition pre-ordered, and should be arriving in the post on Tuesday, my day off! Awesome.

Interesting I guess. Its not bioshock though. Smells like fan service? Maybe thats cash in I'm smelling. Anyway the feel of the first bioshock is not in this trailer and that does not bode well for the game; from someone who doesnt think they needed a sequel, so take that how you will.  
 
Trailer was cool, but it made no sense and doesnt make me want to play it.

What?   I mean... what? That's a tired gameplay mechanic? Can you name some other games with it?  Not to mention it's more interesting if the enemies use these new powers and use them well. "

It is just annoying when you get to a final boss and they aren't unique they are basically a clone of you.  Some games decide to use that for more than just the final boss and it gets really annoying. 
 
It is common practice in games where you have powers, but if you insist.: 
 
-Prototype 
-Hulk Ulitmate Destruction(although pretty much all Hulk games) 
-Predator: Concrete Jungle 
-Devil May Cry 4 
-The Darkness 
-Star Wars The Force Unleashed(Jedi Knight games too) 
-Afro Samurai 
-BioShock(final boss) 
-Crackdown 
-Ultimate Spiderman(pretty much all Spiderman games) 
-Iron Man 
 
It is really common for a game to not have clever ideas for enemies so they just make them super strong or give them one of your guns/abilities.  These are just a few of the really bad offenders that come to mind when I think about it... really it is common in super hero movies too.  It isn't smart and it ends up boring.

This looks like the ultimate game for people who just want to kill some child molesters with the force and a big ass mining drill. Sign me up!

I thought this was a really cool-looking trailer. I also don't really understand the anti-BS2-bandwagon.

I love the first Bioshock so much, but I'm wary about the sequel.
 
This trailer is using my affection for the first to get me excited about the second... and it's working, dammit.

@Demigonis:
Doubt it's an anti-BS2 wagon, just one that is sceptic because it bears the name of a great game.

A game with a static ending that doesn't leave much room.

Guess they should've gone with BioShock: Origins!

Very subtle at the end there. He Will Be Born. I'm sure that means nothing. Nothing at all. Definitely doesn't allude to a plotwist that will eventually occur. That's silly.

That trailer would have been cool, if you weren't doing an escort mission in it.
If that girl has a life bar I will hold a grudge.

Cool trailer, but I still can't get hyped for it. Everything was done in the first one. What is the point of going back?
