this(ladies and germs), is my pen name .Prett..., Amazon

  • 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.

Interesting ideas but lack of execution

CF, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • 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).

Amazing games, won't run well on Win7

Bolmeteus, Amazon

  • 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.

Windows 7 not supported

  • 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.

This was a waste when I bought it on sale.

Coleolitis, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: Bioshock 1 hardly ever launches, and when it does, there is no sound. Bioshock 2 requires a windows live account, and I opted to not use one, because I thought there could be no harm in it. It turns out, if you dont use a windows live account, you can't save, so I wasted 2 hours playing a game I couldn't save.

Win 7 Compatability Nightmare

Fishntime, Amazon
28 June 2012
  • Summary: Purchased these as they were at a good price and activated on Steam. On my older rig that runs Vista they work fine after using the audio mixer trick. On my newer rig that runs Win7 they simply refuse to remain stable. The compatability issues are nothing short of atrocious. After going through all the known tricks they might (seems to be pure luck of the draw) work for a session.

False advertising

Morgon Kanter "surgo", Amazon
7 July 2009
  • Summary: Don't get me wrong -- both of these games on their own are absolutely incredible, five-star games. However, the description here on Amazon claims that this package comes with the Game of the Year edition of Oblivion (which contains Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine). Do not be fooled however -- it does not, it instead contains the original game with neither Shivering Isles nor Knights of the Nine, despite what Amazon's description says.

Not nearly as good is people make it sound

C Hill, Amazon
9 June 2009
  • Summary: Here's a game for which I had high expectations. But overall, the experience was rather underwhelming. There are some known problems with this game in Vista: no sound and no full-screen. Perhaps this is a joke on the part of the programers but the way I was able to fix it in-game is to actually turn sound off, turn fullscreen off! You start by surviving a plane crash. The fire on the water looks very nice. Then you swim to a lighthouse and take an elevator down.

RIP Irrational...err, 2K boston

Rich Kilfoyle "polytourist97", Amazon

  • Summary: What a shame. This game started out with so much potential. I'm a huge fan of System Shock 2, so when this game was billed as it's spiritual successor by the people who created it, I was definitely interested. Let me get this out of the way first, because it seems to be the first defense fans of the game jump to... no, I did NOT have too high expectations. In fact, I did my best to stay away from information on the game so I could experience it as "fresh" as possible.
