The last thing I was thinking while playing Bioshock was how much I'd like to play it competitively

Me neither, but this looks pretty good. If they can come up with some good gametypes which are coherent with the whole Bioshock atmosphere, I think the multiplayr could really add something. I did play the first one twice, but didn't get much more replay value out of it than that.

I think multiplayer modes in franchises dedicated to an outstanding single-player experience (like Bioshock and Uncharted) are made solely for the purpose of pleasing this idiotic "if it doesn't have multiplayer, it's a waste of money" crowd.

Well, I don't need a multiplayer in Bioshock 2 at all. Even if I have to admit, it looks not bad.

If I want an outstanding multiplayer, I'll pop in good ol' Warhawk. Best multiplayer game ever in my opinion. If even CoD, BF and all the other popular MP franchises fail to change that opinion, nobody should expect me to give this Bioshock 2 multiplayer any attention beyond trying it out once or twice.

I agree about how people hate on a game too much for not having MP. That said, a GOOD mp component does add a ton of value to games like CoD or Halo that wouldn't be nearly as popular otherwise.

But Uncharted 2 and Bioshock are great examples of games that do the single player aspect really great, but the gameplay does not translate well to MP, or at least for me. I thought Uncharted 2 was the best single player experience of 2009 (maybe demons souls comes close) but the MP did not feel like it belonged in the same league as it's AAA single player. I can't see bioshock's gameplay doing much better.

I could be wrong, but I just don't see this style of weaponry and gameplay style translating well to a competition based atmosphere. But I do hope i'm wrong.

I think Naughty Dog's IGN article about single player experience was something all devs should read.

all i can do is echo everyone..multiplayer and Bioshock to me just don't compute...it all looks very unbalanced and not needed.

What's up?
  • nostradamus

    nostradamus @Seth: if anything the enemy zombies rest to be seen if they are as good as seen on Resi2. Nothing gave it away. I dount it is, as its more a action game than the previous title. (8 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth I thought character models, lip syncing etc are nice step up as well. [url] (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog not to say it looks bad, it doesn't. it just doesn't look as nice as REmake 2 to me. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: the enviroments look a lot more empty. i don't know if it's because of the emphasis on racoon streets or what. but it just doesn't look as polished. lip syncing and facial capture looks off too (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Seth: Yeah, looks on par to me. Probably even better if I'm honest. (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth what i find a bit disappointing is Resistance MP (legit look terrible) replacing Mercenaries mode. (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth looks as good as RE2 in motion. What is rushed about? I could bet RE3 is going to be one of the most polished AAA games this year. (2 Days ago)
