Summary: If you're buying the physical disc just because you don't want to deal with online activation, don't. You won't be able to play this at all if Steam is offline. This renders the disc pointless if it's useless on other computers and I get the digital version anyway. I still like playing the game itself, but the DRM just makes me wonder why they bother packaging this on a disc.

Summary: Bioshock 2 is kind of a mixed bag.It is an extension of the same (reasonably coherent) storyline from the first.It sports many of the same magnificent graphics , voice acting, sound effects and weapons from B.S.1 and whereas B.S.1 had the annoying habit of overwhelming the player with superfluous sound and music effects at the most inopportune moments B.S.2 has managed to tone it down somewhat.But in that effort perhaps they went a little too far.
Summary: BioShock Infinite Hello there, this review will contain *OPINIONS*. Read on below if you wish to know whether to purchase this product or not, based either on gameplay merit or story merit. The review will be broken down into GAMEPLAY, SOUNDTRACK, and STORY. A preface to the review, I have played Bioshock, and Bioshock 2.
Summary: I bought this as a birthday gift for my brother, I usually buy him CE games, last one being Duke Nukem Forever, as he is quite the fan. I didn't hesitate to pay the $90 (pre-purchase price) for DNF. The goodies were quite worth it, if the game didn't live up to the original. In this case is quite the opposite; the game is amazing (check out gamespot or metacritic for detailed reviews), the disappointment was with the goodies.
Summary: Review on the Premium edition not the game Unfortunately, the art book was about the only thing good with this Premium edition. The soundtrack was a digital download, the card was a just a postcard, the Handy Man is so small and cheap plastic you can't even tell what it is, and what looked to be coins in the photo are just in-game things that were useless. The key chain was OK, though small. The only nice thing was the hard cover art book.
The game is AMAZING, this "premium" version isn't.

Summary: I'd hate to have to give this 2 stars, but it is the premium edition of the game, and not the game itself. What's so bad about it?? For one the lithograph isn't really a lithograph, it's like they went online looked for a picture and printed tons of them on white paper, cut them, and stuck them in the box, the book is practically a pamphlet to buy an even better artbook with more art. Like i said the 2 stars is for this edition, the game itself is 5 stars.
Summary: When Bioshock first came out I ignored it, since it looked like the typical Horror-Shooter. Over many years I heard a lot of good things about it though, so I decided to give it a try when I saw a good deal. Turns out the game really isn't for me. After trying to like it for 2 hours I gave up (for now).
Summary: Unfortunately, though these are amazing games they just don't run well on Win 7. They crash constantly and I haven't even been able to get Bioshock 1 to run past the opening sequence without crashing. Not worth anything if they won't run.
Summary: If you have Windows 7, 64bit version, chances are you are not able to run Bioshock (Elder Scrolls may work). Since you have to active at the time of installation, you cannot return it or sell it (or at least have hard time doing so). So, be forewarned.
