In little more than a month you'll finally ascend to the floating city of Columbia to wipe a debt and rescue a girl. Well, not just any girl, this is "The Lamb", but you'll come to know her by the name of Elizabeth.
Bah! They are doing a good job of teasing the crap out of me with this game!

Yes, you are correct that a different team developed Bioshock 2. Think of Infinite as more of a spiritual successor like Bioshock was to System Shock 2. It's unrelated to Bioshock's world of Rapture and everything in it and I'm pretty sure Infinite only has Bioshock in its title solely for marketing purposes.

Judging by the part with the lighthouse, there kind of hinting at that the girl was from rapture.

I guess it's possible there may be a link. Only with a playthrough shall will know for sure, I mean there certainly are some cues that remind me of Bioshock, but I thought I recall Ken Levine saying that Infinite hasn't got anything to do with Bioshock 1. Don't quote me on that though.

I thought Infinite was a prequel to Bioshock?

It has never been stated that Infinite is a sequel nor a prequel to the original Bioshock, so we have no idea if there is any connection between Rapture and Columbia.

I played the original bioshock and loved it. I heard the second one was not as good and I will probably buy infinite so I am wondering if I need to play the second one to fully appreciate infinite. What do you guys think?

The second one wasn't developed by the same team, but it still is a good game. The audio logs and story is still gripping, if you loved the original for that reason then I recommend playing Bioshock 2. The gameplay is not quite as fun and it is shorter than the first game. I thought it was a 7/10 and the original was more like 9/10 or 9.5/10.

Reading on wikipedia, this made me giddy with excitement:
Quote:
The game will also feature a "1999 Mode", harkening back to games like System Shock 2 where decisions made by the player will have a more permanent impact on the game, possibly leading the player to an unwinnable situation and requiring a restart from an earlier saved game.
Quote:
Levine has stated that the ending of Infinite is "like nothing you've experienced in a video game before"; the story purposely avoids a problem that arose from the original BioShock in which, after the death of Andrew Ryan in the middle of the game, "the story loses some of its steam".
