Big Daddys. Boy did they freak me out when I played Bioshock for the first time… They were a pain to face. Once I defeated one however, it was awesome, as I jumped up and yelled out that I was the greatest video game player in the world (Yeah I know, its pathetic). Well, in your return to Rapture for Bioshock 2, 2K has you playing as a Big Daddy. NOW you get to face the faster, slender (and kinky) Big Sister, as well as a slew of other bizarre, big basterdly baddies. There is the Brute Splicer, which, I’m sure is the fat mindless mess your shocking in the commercials, who needs a shit ton of fire, ice, electricity and old fashioned lead to shred. From what I’ve read there is also more options to harvest your precious, Unobtainium-like Adam. Not only ripping open a cute little Zombie girl anymore but finding Adam slugs along the ocean floor, which is another place you get to traverse, while watching splicers being mutilated by other Big Daddys silently as you peep through windows. How do you get on the ocean floor? Oh. It’s when The Big Sister floods out your multi-leveled level by breakin’ the glass. Besides getting all that, the old token bad guy at the end of every level is a Big Sister, yes my friends…There isn’t just one.
So like heroin and chasing that dragon you never really catch, capture some Rapture. I’m ready for some deep sea diving.
The game will be available next week for the PC, Playstation 3, and -Box 360. After the jump, check out the trailer that 2K revealed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
