IGN: Bioshock PS3 Review & Video Review

If you never experienced the halls of Rapture and have been waiting for its appearance on the PS3, there really is no discussion to be had. Go out and get your hands on Bioshock -- you will thoroughly enjoy exploring the incredible story and the excellent action that the game is known for. However, if you've played the game before, or are expecting this to be the definitive version, that's not fully found here. Sure, the full trophy support and Survivor mode are great, and the Challenge Rooms could add a ton to the replayability (whenever it's implemented). However, old glitches that should've been fixed in the PS3 development hold this version back from being completely realized.

Presentation - 10
Graphics - 9.0
Sound - 10
Gameplay - 9.5
Lasting Appeal - 9.0

The story is too old to be commented.

Thats how many AAA's this year?

sucks that 2k didn't fix the bugs that the 360 version had, but those bugs weren't that bad anyway. Should be a great experience for those that haven't played this one.

I suggest playing without the vita chambers. Makes the game a bit more.. realistic :)

This score should have been the exact same as the 360 score. No if, ands, or buts about it.


CViper3684d ago

everyone knows bioshock is a great game, its good that 2k put forth a decent effort, looks like devs have finally run out of their 'buh buh too hard ps3 code' attitude, and have figured it out.

the problems should have been fixed though that the 360 version had, but those problems didn't stop the 360 version from getting the 9.7. So im almost on the fence there about that.. but oh well.

Ps3 has more content, better graphics in places, the same gameplay. Its a win-win for gamers.

Jamegohanssj53684d ago

Yeah you do have a point dude, well I guess you just have to deal with some things.


calis3684d ago

different reviewer, different score. Get over it. It scored well.

Alvadr3683d ago

No this game shouldnt have got the same as the 360s 9.8. Why? Because the 360 version should have never got that score in the first place.

Hilary totally overrated this game a year ago and I can remember Jeff saying on the PS3 podcast around the time that he wouldnt have scored that game so high.

||There are so many AAA titles on Ps3 I have lost count||

JasonPC360PS3Wii3683d ago (Edited 3683d ago )

You lost count with 2? because Bioshock is Miltiplatform so that leaves you with 2...XD Hold up your hand in a fist, now lift one finger, now lift another... ok thats (giggles) 2

krakdol3683d ago

@Jason : you lost count with zero on 360.

2008 AAA exclusive until now :
- 360 : none (or did I miss anything ?)
- PS3 : Wipeout, MGS 4, Siren, LBP, Bioshock

Okaaaaay... ;)
