Yeah, too lazy to dig for the 360 thread. Move if you must.

Anyway, this is one game I've been anticipating since they announced it. Had a chance to watch my roommate play for a few hours and it looked liked a good time. I have to go to class all morning but when I return I plan on wasting my time away with this game.

Anyone else playing it? Thoughts?

The first one is one of hte best games ever. The second one, I'm maybe three hours in and it's good, but it doesn't seem to have the same emphasis on story that the first one did... I felt slightly disappointed on some level, but I put it aside until I can actually buy it because I'm going to grab it with my tax money... I hope the narrative picks up when I get a little further into it.

most reviewers note that the story in two is tighter and has more logical story arcs...the dual wielding of plasmids and weapons is very exciting...I think I would buy this game simply because of the unique environment, though.

I loved the atmosphere in the first one... I normally don't play shooters but enjoyed the hell out of it. Definitely picking this up at some point, though I hardly have time to play video games these days... still only killed one SOB in Assassin's Creed 2.

I didn't like bioshock 1 when I first played it, but a year later I tried it again and loved it.

I had it beat it an sold it..the first one that is. That game wasn't hard to me at all for some reason, I dunno. It was a lil overhyped to me. Not bad but it didn't blow my mind at all. Hell I enjoyed Prey more..that was an early slept on 360 release that was pretty good an fun to play.

I think what made Bioshock so special was the environment of rapture and the great narrative that went along with it. Not very often you get such a unique story in video games these days.

His are the only reviews I somewhat trust. Plus he's usually pretty entertaining.

MW2 is the most broken game I've ever owned. The glitches on the multiplayer have pretty much rendered it unplayable.
