GamesRadar has PC Gamer UK's Bioshock review. It's a meaty review (far more detailed than the GameInformer review), which ultimately scores the game a perfect 10/10.
How unfortunate for me this game had to be an FPS and scary.
20 hours is a rip off.
8% chance am getting this for my 360
BioShock is not that scary...Well I guess I've seen every horror movie there is to see.
I was 6 years old when I first saw ALIEN so I guess I'm used to these sorts of things. :P
If you're not good at scary FPS games, then you should know the game would take you more than 20 hrs to beat. For everyone else, this game is amazing
...is a rip-off?! Does anybody else agree with that comment? There's a 92% chance you're gonna miss out on this game.
And it's probably much longer if you inspect every little corner, like I do, and there is good replayability. Hell, I think I've already put 6+ hours in the demo alone.
a run for their $ as a GOTY candidate! Lucky bastards. x( ;)
TGI August! :P
I will wait to make my review of the game until I play the full thing, but fro the demo I have high expectations. I truly believe it will be a solidif not exceptional game.
Again the update:
PC Gamer UK: 9.5
OXM UK: 10
Game Informer: 10
Alternative Press: 10
Xbox World: 9.4
AP Mag: 10
Games Radar: another 10!!!
9.4?? I think we all know Xbox World is in Sony's pocket =P
Damn, i dontt know how to reply. anyw\ay.
am just saying if this game was an rpg. 90% chance i wud buy it
You know that this game has strong RPG qualities, right?
no this game is a normal fps. there are no rpg elements. or do you call this "injections" rpg elements ? the game is nothing special, but the water looks very good and the atmosphere is good, but its only a normal fps, it reminds me strong of doom3. wich is one of my favourites fps games. but the weapons in bioshock seem week, and the opponents are too "crazzy", not my type of game.
@achira shut the fuc* up. Your comment holds no weight as you don't even own a 360. You obviously know nothing about this game and no one needs your stupid post to say "I'm not getting it" I am pretty sure we can all safely assume a PS3 fanboy is not going to buy an Xbox game. Unless Microsoft and Sony converged and games work on both systems we pretty much knew you weren't getting it. Plus you play a role, you change how the game plays, you change your abilities and you control the world. Yep sounds pretty much like a RPG to me dipsh!t
He's a brave soul, but foolish. He is the final fanboy trying to downplay the significance of this game.
Hey Achira, didn't LAIR come out yesterday? Why aren't you playing it. Oh yeah it got delayed. Sorry.
Damn another 10. Amazing!
to say it's nothing special is just ignorant, but it's exactly what I'd expect from you achira. If this ain't special, nothing is or ever will be. The reviews prove it.
Ha ha I got a disagree, becuase I said I was gonna wait until I play the actual game. It may be just me, but I thought you actually have to play a game to review it. Anyways I have had this games scoped over 10 months ago. I am not suprised in the least that it is receiving awesome reviews.
"I truly believe it will be a solidif not exceptional game"
You got a disagree from me, because until I just went back now and re-read what you said I missed the "if" and it read "I truly believe it will be a solid not exceptional game" sorry my mistake.
If there's ever a time I will encourage my ps3 loving counterparts to put their pride aside and pick up a 360 it's now(if u can afford it)this game is ridiculously good, wow I have never played a game like this before, this is a game, if this is the only game I get to play on my 360, man it's worth it,,,,just sad I had to come to work....
I don't know if it will eventually come to ps3 but even so, do not wait till next yr to play this game if you're a gamer...trust me you want this now and you will forget you were a FANBOY
There are two endings to this game right?
i wonder if gamer that haven't play the demo, notice the buzz that this game is creating and the mention of "game of the year" between gamers that had play the demo."??? and all the reviews.
Am I the only one that still has the 2006 E3 video on his Xbox? You know the one where he drags the little sister out of the clock and almost hits with the pipe wrench. Then the Big Daddy rocks him and he shoots the stuff in his arm and kills the bastard..? Before getting the drill through his stomach.
Ya, I watched that thing 100 times and was sold instantly since the first moment I saw it. Now it is living up to everything I thought it would be and is be praised like no other game has in a long, long time. We are truly seeing something special here folks.
Bioshock is GOTY...Easy
Ya, but if you played me now you would own me, Haven't played in months!...Stupid Guitar Hero is like crack!
And like you, I also was sold from the first time I saw it. Too bad the game doesn't actually look as crisp and polished as that trailer, but, hey, they never do. The game still looks awesome though, and it is pure art.
btw Syko, weren't you the guy I played 1 on 1 Gears with? Jeah I lost.
I don't know about that, I haven't played it much either lately, so I've definately lost my touch.
I do too, man. I was sold too. As soon as i saw it i was like "Right...i know this is gonna be scary game, and i hate scary games but...This is one of those games, that looks so good, i am going to love it anyway." And i do :D This is the only time i've ever been so excited for a game.
I really think this game is something special and is going to change FPS games for the better in the way that Halo did when it was first released. I hope they make a sequel to this game and that it is as impressive gameplay wise and story wise as this. This game will cost me my social life, but it's worth it.
Lately, we're lucky if a shooter breaks 10 hours. Plus, this game has allows a deliberate slower pace that some prefer(me).
The demo was amazing - giving just enough of a taste so to show the potential of the full game - so 20 amazing hours! Reminds me of RE4...good company to be in.
after seeing Bioshock's box I think Bioshock on PS3 rumor is probably as good as dead. Check the images if you haven't seen them already.
Especially when the drill went through the guys stomach. I was like dammmm that shi* is for me. I love FPS and gory ones. Some are good and some are bad. I like the Darkness but as good as it is something is missing. Bioshock has been just looming at the background while all of us where seeing E3 and talking about late 07 or 08 games while this just slammed us this summer and gaved us that drill to our bodies. I myself unfornately can't buy it till mid sept, so for me in Sept, it's two games, Bioshock and everyone knows the other.
