How to stop a cat from biting so much when playing?

My boyfriend got a 2 year old cat from the Humane Society last weekend, and while the kitty is very cute and curious about everything and extremely social, he's seems to be in play-fight mode all the time. He's gentle with his claws when play-fighting, but he bites a lot. I've taken to keeping my finger in his mouth when he bites me until he tries to push it out with his tongue, but it doesn't seem to stop him from attacking me 2 minutes later. We've also tried ignoring him when he gets too aggressive, but again, he's just as feisty next time you try to pet him. His teeth are sharp; how do we teach him that it's unacceptable?
