Here's what PC Gamer says about Bioshock:
A dark and astonishing masterpiece.
Disturbing and spectacular.
-A horror game
-A long game
-A Shock game
-About killing kids
Final Score: 95% = Sublime
9.5 nice. I was hoping for another 10 or at least a 9.6 but this is good. Really good. Cant wait for Bioshock. And for such a revolutionary and big game to be not bugged or not demanding, its an amazing feat. For me, GOTY is between this, Assassin's Creed and GTA4. (Unless we get MGS4 this year). Honorable mentions: Mass Effect, Rock Band and Call of Duty 4.
This was one of those games that deserved the hype, survived the hyped, and delivered.
Not too many games due that now adays.
True, not many games deserve their hype and live up to it. I seriously hope Fallout 3 follows this trend and is a superb masterpiece, worthy of its E3 hype (And making Fallout 1&2 proud). Love the Fallout's Vault Boy cameo in Bioshock.
OXM gave Gears of War 9 out of 10.
OXM gives BioShock 10 out of 10.
Are you sure? Thats just wow. Kudos to OXM for being unbiased and accurate, also more proof that Bioshock is a true masterpiece and hopefully one of the best games of our time.
but I was just in the official Xbox forums, and that's what people said in there.
Gears got a 10/10 from OXM
I'm just going to assume your mad because it's not on the PS3
I like that we're getting reviews a little before the actuall release, so you know what to expect if you buy on release day.
Wow 2 well recieved reviews for this one! Glad I have it pre-ordered ^^
Uh Oh, MS haters are not gonna be happy bout this.
Gonna take a beast of a PC to run this well.
The second comment was more about if you don't already have a beast of a PC, you better get a 360. It will be a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a decked out gaming rig.
This isn't Microsoft's game, it belongs to 2K and Irrational games. They only way for MS to profit is if someone buys a console in order to get this game.
wouldnt MS get a small cut for it being on their system, just wondering.
Well, I dont know if someone would run out & get a 360 *just* for Bioshock alone...... maybe Bioshock, Gears of War, Halo 3 & Mass Effect ! Sounds like 4 really good reasons to buy a 360 & you can have 'em all before Christmas !!!
Or a PC with XP or vista, sorry bro I like half of what you say but your wrong here. Thats three products that MS can sell with this high scoring exclusive, so yeah I think they do benefit here.
srsly...who buys windows? -.-
Every person who buys a non built PC wheter you like it or not! Yes even you are an MS corporate slave!!!!!!
I'm so inlove with my 360
Of course any XBOX 360 games are gonna get high scores. But this 95% from PC gamer is good. I'm sure it's a very good horror shooter.
They are true to their reviews.
Good games get good reviews.
Bad games get the boot.
Don't Assume when you havent even read the mag.
OXM gave Crackdown 70. Yeah you read it right 70/100. Crackdown was published by Microsoft Game Studios.
I think that this game will rock! Can`t wait to play it. It`s gonna be a lot of money spent on games this holiday season!
Guess I will have to dust off the old CORE Xbox360 sitting in the spare room for this game.
I really want to know what the whole thing is about, it's seems like one of the most mysterious titles to ever grace the industry.
Pity it's not on PS3 but there you go..... you can't have it all :P
If you own both why do you care what system it is on?
Microsoft are really smart with this year line up. Every mounth a good game is coming out for the 360. This is going to drain al my money.
Absolutely. I'm not surprized wth Bioshock's reviews at all. The first of the BIG 3 Games will be here in 3 weeks !!
August - Bioshock
September - Halo 3
Novemeber - Mass Effect
Honorable mention to COD4 as well in October. Wow it's great 2B an Xbot !!!
what about GTA4 on October?
i wish i had a pc powerful enough to run it, my laptop refused to run dawn of war at all :(
if you did i could recommend alot more great games to you.
With all the crazy games comming out. You need a craazzzyyy PC to keep up with it.
I can't even run F.E.A.R. on my pc.
i may have to buy a ps3 2009.
95% from PC Gamer?!
Damn, it's hard to impress those people aswell, I think they gave Half-Life 91%.
I KNEW IT! Haha how awesome is this, I could just tell as I looked at the first screen of this game how amazing it would be. Than the story unfolded and we saw first gameplay and it looked unbelievable. Now it's here and it is true to it's word and irritational accomplished what they said they wanted to do. I am so excited for the release of this game now, I really feel like this will be one of the best games ever made. Their are so many ties into this game that have to do with morality and life that it will really attract a broad audience. Hopefully it sells well. Word of mouth people, word of mouth. Couple weeks! YES!
Sometimes when a game gets too hyped I get nervous...the excitement can be hard to live up to. A 95% from PC Gamer is very impressive. This is the first game in a legendary string of games released for the 360 before the end of the year. I've been saving up money since the spring for this fall's lineup.
anyone ever played this game? I heard it didnt sell crap? Most people expect the same from this one...I still dont see the reason why this game is so wanted...loooks like another FPS to me
lol call me what you want but the first game sold like crap and now the second game is so good now because tis on the 360 and im the fanboy...plz every game on 360 is not the best game ever like gears, dead rising and lost planet..thoes game are super average with fun multiplayer..that dosent make a game good maybe gives it replay value but not a good game...
ITS NOT THE GAME OF THE GODs...like halo 2 that game sucked ass yet the multi player was fun...halo one was great but two sucked and i know 3 will suck..but it will be the best game ever to you guys...
yet i will play it and tell you guys what i think of it
hahahahahahahahahaha...oh, wait, your serious? Oh, um ok? You're blind, deaf, and cannot read apparently.
-A horror game
-A long game
-A Shock game
You're a Sony fangirl. Every post I see you bash the 360 or a game for the 360. When will people realize that games are just disc. They don't have an alligence. I don't care what console a game is on, if it's good, i will play it. I rented AVP 1 on Jaguar to play it( it was that good). Gamers game, fangirls complain....Please kill yourself.
System Shock 2 was a true masterpiece and has cult status these days and was name one of the 10 top best PC games of all time. Bioshock won almost all the awards at E3 06 and Game of the show from Gamespot. At E3 07 it was still a big winner, namely at GameSpy.
This game has superb graphics, unique feel and settings, innovative gameplay and superb freedom, kool big daddies and those little sister, HOW ON EARTH can you NOT be excited about this masterpiece is beyond me, but thats your personal choice and I respect it.
Hope your mind changes after you played the game.
Fanbgirls don't play the games they argue about. They just don't. They fight about exclusives but never play them. It's a fact of life. I don't know how xbox fangirls went without playing GOW last gen, or how Sony fangirls went without NG. Oh wait I forget that they love NG now since it's on the ps3. That is the idioticy of the gaming world.
Awwwwwww, somebody's jealous ! No, I don't believe you'll play the game because No, I don't believe you even own a 360, little Flamer. Isn't there a Lair thread around here for you to go whine on ? Why do you care about Bioshock, Halo 3, & Gears of War so much ? You say they all suck right ? So, Why are you here ????????????
By the way, Gears of War: 2 million copies sold in it's 1st six weeks !
GEARS has set the bar for next gen games - PERIOD !!
Yeah, that's an "average" game - maybe "average" for the 360 !!! LOL !!!
Why would what you think of a game really matter to anyone.
Just for the record I agreed with him. Im more excited about Stranglehold than Bioshock. But I may be wrong well see when the demo comes out on Aug 8 for stranglehold. As for halo I never liked any one of them and H3 demo was average to me. But thats just my oppinion Gears had amazing single and good MP. Its just funny how when someone doesent like a game and states his oppinoin they get shyted on. LOL
Edit: It is dumb to judge a game before you play it though so I can see why everybody is on his @$$.
Can't wait to get this game on my Xbox 360, shame Ps3 owners will miss out on this great game.
Finally, the summer slump is about to get its ass kicked!
8/14 Madden <- Finally getting the complete next-gen treatment
8/28 Metriod Prime 3
I can hardly wait
Lol...I still fail to see a reason to buy this game..I didn't say 360 period yet you still call me a fanboy..I look forward to games like MAss effect , Halo 3 and Too Human and a slew of other game...Im sorry that I dont like your stoopid bioshock
did you notice that you are the only ps3 fanboy in this section? just shut up, no one cares if you dont like the game, keep it to yourself.. just shut up... go to your liar forms or something that you do
you look forward to Mass Effect? Too Human??? HALO 3?????? LMAO
that's because you're a little b!tch
My family is gettin me a new computer so im gettin this game on PC..I dont need a 360 to play it..
Thanks for the update, we were so concerned.
new computer fine? what is the config? well whatever if your PC can run it. Enjoy. remember if you got Vista, Bioshock supports DirectX 10
I think this is one of those great games that evryones expectations were met.
I loved System Shock 2 and I'm sure I'm going to love BioShock to death. Can't wait to play this AAA title.
I have the Sept issue in front of me right now, there's no Bioshock review at all. Am I missing something?
