First BioShock PS3 review is in - Scores 93/100

CVG writes: "After just over a year's wait, and plenty of rumours, BioShock will launch for PS3 on October 24. One of the first reviews - from PSM3 magazine - is in and it gives the game the thumbs up.

As expected, the review gives credit to the game's epic story but later on PSM3 says, "Everything and everyone reacts as you'd expect it to, both physics-wise and psychologically so. This means that it's always possible to discover new combinations, making for some beautifully intuitive gameplay."

It adds: "You'll never make such a bad decision that you'll completely scupper yourself - it's effectively impossible to die, since all you do is respawn at the nearest Vita-Chamber."

As I said, it looks worse on the ps3, as always. That must be the power of the cell x's 10 working overtime, right guys? hahahaha


Getting disagrees here, but I don't know why... see, they say themselves the graphics are better on the xbox 360 version at the end of the review. They say "if you like visuals over new puzzles the xbox 360 version is for you"

Sorry, guys. Ps3 loses again and as always. A 600 dollar flop.

Bioshock is taking full advantage of the cell and blu-ray.

therealwillie3587d ago

don't heed him guys, he feeds off your reactions

Silogon3587d ago

What is this a Dr. Suess book?

"Don't heed Silogon cause he feeds on the reaction of morons. Morons I say, simply cause they know nothing about reality. Reality is a world Silogon likes to live in see, cause in reality things like the cell are nothing more than little boys dreams set to fail. "

It's sad every time you see a dual platform game and the PS3 doesn't kill the 360. On paper the 360 has the inferior hardware. Programming for the console must be just that hard or the hardware must not be all that much better. I refuse to think every programming studio is lazy.

Freezingduck3587d ago

"IGN: Although it was still an early build of the game, the title looks fantastic. The water effects look much slicker, as do many of the environments as they are slowly submerged in water. It's quite obvious that 2K is taking full advantage of the PS3's Blu-ray discs to pack in cleaner high resolution textures for every facet of the game"

600 dollars? No wonder so many people ignore you, and here goes your last bubble.

InMyOpinion3587d ago

From the review: "However, PSM3 also admits: "If you're a lucky multi-format owner who favours visuals over some extra puzzle levels, you're probably better off with 360's original. Otherwise, you needn't panic: Rapture shines on every format and plays identically."

So what you got for waiting a year was some extra puzzle levels, slightly gimped visuals and a 5GB 10-minute mandatory install? A win-win situation lol!

kingboy3587d ago

Dude do us all a favor,sell your ps3 system and get an xbox 360..hopefully that way we wouldn`t hear your cries anymore on every ps3 thread

Kleptic3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

stop saying 'always'...its not always...UT3 ps3 and 360...identical...CoD 4...identical...Oblivion...PS3 ...Burnout paradise...PS3...GTAIV...PS3 (you can aruge the 640p vs. 720p all you want, nearly every review declared that as moot, and that the PS3 had better draw distance, better framerate, more realistic color/lighting, faster loading, and less pop-in)...and nearly every recent game, albeit average looking overall, have been identical between the two systems...

No multiplat game, save CoD 4 or Burnout Paradise, really pushed the visual bar for either system...and Cod 4 was identical on both, with BP being superior on the PS3...that says something...Bioshock was noted for impressive art style, not overwhelmingly good visuals on the 360 (after all, its still the same old UE3 thats been around since 2006...high res, yet 'wet' textures, which actually fit in this game...)

yeah, the ps3 doesn't blow the 360 away ever in multiplat games...but please show us a 360 title that is half as complex or visually overwhelming as MGS4...the 360 simply DOESN'T get games that look that good...where is something on the 360 to even point a finger at Killzone 2?...Gears 2 looks great, but its UE3'ness is still front and center with goofy character lighting, horrid muzzle flicker, and the same particle effects from Ut3...

call it whatever you want...the PS3 and 360 are similarly powerful I guess...yet when the right dev team gets ahold of a PS3 (kojima productions or Guerilla Games for example) with a pot of cash, you see things that you won't see unless you have a Crysis worthy rig...

Remember POG flipping out about how Splinter Cell: Conviction devs claimed that only the 360 could achieve the stunning visuals that the game will display?...and that it would rival even high end PCs whenever it releases?...yeah me too...I remember how MGS4 sent the whole damn game back to the drawing board...End_factsheet.exe

needless to say that silogon is still right with the quote.they did say it in the article if you read it.

ape0073587d ago

enjoy this classic as much as you can cause it's that good

bioshock+lbp=what a good time to be a gamer

xhi43587d ago

and it is up there as one of my favourite games. The twist at the end just made me facepalm myself and go OHHH YEAHHHHhhhhh haha great moment!

I'll probably rent it and have a play through, but I don't see any reason in buying it twice.

but for those who haven't played it......PLEASE!

potenquatro3587d ago

PS3 fanbois pls play this game. maybe now you all might understand how gears kicks a$$, but it's NOT the best looking game for any system. this game is my favorite single player fps hands down.

DevastationEve3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

PS3 is cool

DevastationEve3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

Back on topic, Bioshock for PS3 proves that multiplatform equals fun for all. Hey, if I had a PS3 I would definitely pick this game up. I have it on x360 and I don't think there will be any major differences on either of the consoles. I don't even think PS3 gamers will complain about the analog placement, as is usually a common gripe amongst hardcore FPSers. DualShock has a long lineage and I think it's one of the greater icons of the industry, in and of itself. I'm sure FPSs play great with it.

Now, PC is another matter. If I pray and cross my fingers I can get MAYBE 25-45FPS at 1024x768. In DX9 mode, I might be able to actually play it. Plus, I have to get a controller to emulate the console feel. But screw that, just get this game on the consoles.

NegativeCreepWA3587d ago

Would you kindly buy this game.

DeforMAKulizer3587d ago

Haha.. Good one scar360... And true it doesnt work on fanboys hehe

poopface13586d ago

but besides those this is my favorite single player in any FPS since deus ex.

If you like FPS you should at least rent it.

immatt3586d ago


I don't see in any way how bioshock has to do with gears of war

Firstkn1ghT3587d ago

Yes definitely a classic game. What's strange is that I thought for sure this game was going to have at least a slight improvement in graphics especially since its an year old game.. Looks like the 360 gets another better version.

BabyStomper50003587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

It's better because?

n4gzz3587d ago

93 out of 100 !!

I guess its flop

mirroredderorrim3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

Kn1ght, that's a cheapshot, man.

I read your comment thinking you were going to finally come to earth and give some credit where credit is due, thinking you'd praise both versions equally.

I disagree with what you say, as I can see that from the HD vids of the game off the PS3 version vs. the 360 version on my XBR4 TV... the game is identical.

The great thing about my TV is how heavily I can emphasize on color;meaning I can make the color scheme match the vids online.

Rob0g0rilla3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )


"I'll be getting some more sleep finally. This one had me worried for a second."

But it comes down to more gameplay or slightly better visuals. I would definitely buy this on PS3 because it has more gameplay but I already purchased it on 360 awhile ago.

More gameplay >>>

PS3 version is a port but plays identical and offers more content that extends the gameplay.

If you really think that the better version has to have better visuals then I'm puzzled as why you have a 360. You should be a PC gamer. They have about 90% of 360s exclusives.

InMyOpinion3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

@thereapersson - You're right. It was solely aimed to Rick Astley and some other people I had a discussion with a while back. Definately open zone material =)

Killjoy30003587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

I'll take the extra content, thank you very much. The PS3 version gets an extra level, and difficulty. And guess what? I can play in 1080p or 720p as standard. Unlike some other consoles...

boodybandit3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

Most if not all multi platform games sound better on the PS3. Fact and not an opinion. Half of Bioshocks appeal is the immersion of the sound. Especially when you hear Big Daddy and Little Sis off in the distance and during battles with Big Daddy.

This game is meant to be played in the dark with the surround sound cranked! The sub gave my chills at times on the 360 version. If I am correct I am going to have to borrow a couple nitro pills from my pops just incase I have to kick start my heart after my first Big Daddy encounter on the PS3.

juuken3587d ago

You're unbelievable.

LeonSKennedy4Life3587d ago

As stated by the developers, the PS3 version will look just as good as the PC version in parts and better in other parts. They've redone a few animations also and added new things.

So, you were saying?

karlostomy3587d ago (Edited 3587d ago )

After all the article speaks for itself:

"However, PSM3 also admits: "If you're a lucky multi-format owner who favours visuals over some extra puzzle levels, you're probably better off with 360's original."

juuken3587d ago

That doesn't make the 360 version more superior.

The PS3 version is nearly identical to the 360 version.

What's wrong with 360 owners these days? Are they bitter that they're running out of reasons to call multiplatform titles superior on their console so they attack the PS3 version?

Do you play the games for just visuals or do you actually play it for the gameplay?

Love the disagree button slamming. Keep it up guys! You're not doing me anything by doing that! Doesn't change my opinions one bit. :)

YoshiMeetsU3587d ago

Ugh! Just enjoy it as both versions are great! This is actually a good opportunity for both side of this dumb console war to come together and enjoy this excellent game.

Now would you kindly give it a rest!

thereapersson3587d ago

I got banned here AGAIN, this time for pointing out 1st knight's trolling.

The mods are f*cking hypocrites on this site.

NegativeCreepWA3587d ago

Would you kindly enjoy the game instead of worrying about which version is better.

Damn, it doesn't work on fanboys.

Bathyj3586d ago

You just scream farquit dont you? Your dad should have made an astronaught of you and shot you off into space.

At least PS3 owners wont need a patch to play it in widescreen.
