From the PC Gamer article
It’s not Rapture, it’s Columbia. It’s not underwater, it’s tied to Zeppelins and floating around the world, thousands of feet in the air. It’s not a secret, delapidated cool kid’s club, it’s a spectacle of American achievement with the same agenda as the moon landings. And you’re not a Nameless Nelly, you’re ex-private detective Booker DeWitt.
You could also add: "It's not 1960s, it's 1912." Given all those things, I'm not sure why they're even calling it a Bioshock (other than brand recognition). The only parallels I see are alternate history, utopian/dystopian city, and telekinesis. Which is something, but until now I defined Bioshock by one word: Rapture.
All that said, the game looks fantastic
I have tremendous faith in Irrational Games. Can't wait to learn more as details emerge!
