It's Okay...

  • Summary: It is very fun in the beginning. But once you hit one quarter of the game which took me 40 minutes. The game is boring and you need a lot of skill to get passed it. I reccomend this game to very intelligent people who love to play games. NOTE: In my opinion, the games price should be lowered down to about 5 dollars.

Overrated...

  • Summary: Can someone explain to me WHY this game got such good reviews? After an hour and a half of playing I was sick of it. I let it sit for weeks before I actually finished it and I can say that I am not impressed. I found the story to be interesting, but the graphics, gameplay, controls, and fun factor all to be lacking. I thought this game was, at best, decent at times. I think the graphics were moderate, and the environments to be very boring and repetitive.

Not that entertaining

  • Summary: I thought that this game was somewhat....boring. I mean its cool at the beginning but then i was like wow this is annoying. Its extremely annoying try to find your way around and stuff. Also the game seems easy but then BAM you get to basically a "boss" ands its basically impossible at some points. I just thought it was repetitive and not worth owning. Thank god i rented it first. I would of been mad if i actually bought this game.

Fun game

  • 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.

Bioshock

  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: incredible setting, hacking mini-game, fun additional powers
  • Cons: lack of character development, botched storytelling, dull gameplay

Why all the hype?

  • 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.

System Shock clone gets it wrong

  • 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.

A Little confused!

  • 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.

Very Disappointed

David Jones, amazon.co.uk

  • 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.
