Ive read numerous confirmed reports from reputable websites that there will be no competitive or co-op multiplayer. Alas I will not be at a loss. Every bioshock has a single player experience that puls you in and takes your mind on a ride it will soon never forget. I can remember the first time the plane crashed down in the first, and the sheer sense of terror that the atmosphere gave off. I got chills and butterflies in my stomach as I anxiously waited for something to scare the pants off me. The multiplayer experience from the 2nd was bearable but it was pretty cookie cutter style. There are only a couple big ticket FPS's that can stand the test of time. I believe that in the future, bioshock could pull it off. I am waiting til Ken Levine brings us back to Rapture for a prequel to the 1st Bioshock. A game that shows us Rapture in all its glory, and slowly brings us closer to the fall of Andrew Ryan.
