The Bioshock 2 launch trailer will drench you with awesomeness

02.04.2010

In the continued of tradition of posting game trailers I deem appropriately “cinematic,” here’s the launch trailer for Bioshock 2 which debuted on Jimmy Fallon last night. The multiplatform game comes out next week, and has players heading back to Rapture to fight all manner of mutated freaks and semi-robotic scuba divers.

The trailer is half cutscene, half gameplay demo, as it shows Bomberman Big Daddy coming to the rescue of a Little Sister, and schooling a bunch of splicers in the process. Then Big Sister shows up with her Poseidon like powers of water control, and shit gets REAL.

As you’ll recall, there is a Bioshock movie adaptation in the works, and at one point, I was very excited about Gore Verbinski’s take on the underwater city. However, he’s since walked, and we now have 28 WEEKS LATER director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo stepping in to helm the project, an adequate replacement, but I really wanted to see Verbinski’s vision.

Extra Tidbit: Sadly, I don't think the hilarious "bees" power has made it's way into the sequel.

I seriously cannot wait for this game. Such an epic trailer. That splicer running on the wall gave me the chills. About the movie, I thought it was cancelled? At least that is what I heard.

YEAAAUGHHH.

Bioshock is one of the most profoundly original and truly terrifying games out there. I can't think of any other video game with such an intelligently developed premise. I will agree that the game does fizzle a little towards the end, but I have confidence that any weaknesses will be perfected in the second one.

I can do without a Bioshock movie. Film has already ruined Tombraider, Doom, and other great classics.

Well, at least Uwe Boll isn't directing it.

The Mass Effect 2 "Launch" trailer shits on this.

I thought Bioshock's story was great but the graphics were so weak that I couldn't really get into it.

Trailer looks sweet, but someone seriously needs to explain to me what was so great about the first game. I played through roughly half, and it wasn't bad...but it didn't warrant all the hard on's people were getting for it. I would have given it a 7.5 out of 10.

I agree the first game was over-rated. The first hour was amazing as it introduced you to the fucked up world, then it just trailed off into repetitiveness and become boring and annoying. Though this footage looks good, was any of it actually in game footage?

Looks awesome, I loved the first one.
I think Carlos Fresnadillo is a better choice for the movie, I think Gore Verbinski wouldve made it too action heavy. The movie should be scary as hell.

Did you not see how shitty 28 Weeks Later was? And this is not even comparing it to the first.

Meh

The first one was one of the most overrated game of all time. I hope this one will be better and less repetitive !

Fresnadillo over Verbinski anyday

28 Weeks Later has been better than every Verbinski film to date. Hopefully he'll make the film terrifying.

True, but you have to remember Verbinski directed The Ring. Thought it was actually pretty creepy.
