I absolutely loved the first Bioshock , it had it all, great story interesting characters and excellent combat. The second was good as well but didn't match the first. This third game appears to be a very ambitious game and if it pulls off what it is aiming at it could be one of the greatest games ever . I have a lot of faith in Ken Levine and his studio irrational games. Ken did the first Bioshock but not the second his story telling and characters are excellent. I definitely recommend playing the first though it is an awesome game.
