Summary: This game was actually a pretty cool game to play as a first shooter game. There's a lot of cool features in this game including a lot of scary/cool monsters. Another thing I liked about this game is that it was a little bit of a challenge as a first shooter you can't pan out and view everything around you so it's like you're in the game.
Pros: Game looks gorgeous! Playing at 1080p on my new TV makes it look great. The plot (so far) is really original and creative.
Cons: They give you ZERO options to configure the controls of the game! I've been playing Halo for months using the "South Paw" control style where the left stick is for aiming, and the right stick is for movement. It's like old-school N64 games where used the yellow buttons for movement, and the stick to aim. I've been used to this control style for so many years that I simply can't play any other way. (Well, except the Metroid Prime style) With the Bioshock controls, I fe...
Summary: Purchased this game based on reviews from other gaming review websites. Knew it was rated "M" when I bought it, but my boys like that edge of your seat action. There is something about this game that is very disturbing - - the combination of graphics, sounds and the game play itself is nonstop, heart-pounding action that is not fun to "play" or even watch. I am certain this one will go to the bottom of the XBox game pile.
Excerpt: I have heard nothing but praise for the Bioshock game series, particularly from a friend of mine that works for 2K games and is a massive Bioshock fan-girl. Keen to avoid spoilers and get to grips with the game myself, I was only aware of the names of some of the characters within the game and had no idea of the plot.
Summary: I fail to understand all the rave reviews about this game. It's entertaining enough, but I was never really addicted to it. Combat seems very strange to me, seems to be just who can shoot who first, with no real thought involved. The ending is very good however, but it was a struggle at times to get that far, when I can honestly say I enjoyed playing Blue Dragon more than this.
Summary: This is a very fun game for a large number of really good reasons (mostly lifted from System Shock II), the problem is that all that fun is absolutely killed for one very simple reason: You can't die, at all. All that happens when you get killed is that you are transported to the nearest 'vita chamber' and given a health\plasmid boost. This means that no matter what you do you are going to win, you just can't loose this game. There is just no way to do it.
Summary: I love Bioshock, have completed a couple of times; Oblivion was a game I was anxious to try out. However upon receiving my double game, I noticed the actual case itself was only able to hold one disc, and that was Bioshock. Oblivion wasn't in there! Now, I consider myself rather archaic when it comes to technical stuff, and pondered the idea that it was the two games on the one disc (How silly of me) So, I'm confused.
Summary: I bought this game as a precursor to getting Bioshock 2 on the strength of the reviews it was getting. Pretty much everyone seemed to this game was amazing. I am just glad that I didn't pay much for it. The graphics are ok but that is where my enjoyment ended. I found it did not engage me or make me want to play it, in short boring. The hacking gameplay with the pipes/fluid seemed a bit different at first but rapidly became tedious.
Summary: I dont understand the big deal with this game. I got to the second level and realised that i wasnt having anything resembling fun, i was just bored. it seemed all you do is walk around some 1960s undewater labyrinth and shoot/fire magic at surprise retards that jump out at you. oh, and every so often you have to kill one of those big guys in a diving suit, which is just annoying because you have to waste all your ammo. and then repeat.
