1UP Awards Bioshock with a Perfect Score, 10/10

It's the dead of night, and an airplane crashes into the ocean. You surface amid flaming wreckage, spot a nearby lighthouse, and start swimming toward it. You swim past the plane's massive tail as it slowly drowns, and you reach the shore. It's at this point your gamer brain has recognized what's going on, and instinctively, you explore the small island. Without hesitation, you open doors that look like they shouldn't be opened, and -- against what most would argue is common sense in a situation such as this -- enter a strange device that takes you deep below the surface and into the unknown. You do this because you're supposed to. That's how this works. At least, that's what you feel.

This is how BioShock begins. By the time it ends, you'll likely feel quite different about how you interact with games, and more importantly, how they interact with you.

The story is too old to be commented.

It was impressive amazing and exciting for the first 3 to 5 reviews but now its really becoming annoying like all those hddvd vs blueray news a few days ago (this doesnt mean the game is no good it looks awesome enough for me to go to my friends and play it, its just i think the site would be better served if we had only one new about a games reviews with links and updating rather than separate news). But well at least i have stopped hearing the nonsense that this site is biased against microsoft and pro sony but i am sure that as time has proven, when there are are good news for the ps3 and bad news about the 360 all the fanboys will once again claim foul play.

At least these stories have to do with a videogame and not a movie format.

Try to get the game to play on your PC. It looks like I might have to give this a crack. If not, sell it on Amazon right away and make most of your money back.

But there is no way in hell, I'm buying an XBOX 360. F*ck you and F*ck your console.

It's a video game need to get personal. Get a girlfriend or something.

nasim3990d ago

how does it get 10 when it has no online and has a very small scale

It desrves 8 at best

I will wait for the IGN review

CrazzyMan3990d ago (Edited 3990d ago )

you shold say " F*ck you M$ and F*ck your M$ products." =))))

anyway, i still don`t like this game...
well how it looks, maybe i should give a try...
but if i still won`t like it, i think i won`t be only one, who didn`t liked this bioshock "world".

supnub53990d ago

it got 9.7 from ign, take off your fanboy glasses, lair and hs (i'm ps3 owner by the way) they are also single-player only and they are superb too, they get 9's.

Gizmo_Logix3990d ago


The PC version will look better. That's true. And the PC sales will cut into the 360 sales. That's a fact. This will always be a dilemma for Microsoft. Dual releases do not help 360 sales. It doesn't hurt. But it doesn't force gamers to just the 360.

Take solace my friend. This is 2K game. Which will probably be on the PS3 and Mac. And that's what I'm going to do. Wait for it on the PS3 or Mac.

That way M$ doesn't get one thin dime from me. :P LOL!

Another 10 for a superb game. I think that PC magazine and other site should be shamefull of themselves for giving BioShock a non-perfect score.

ArduousAndy3990d ago (Edited 3990d ago )

has there been a game that has received scores like this ?

Edit: how do i get a disagree?

MK_Red3990d ago (Edited 3990d ago )

I think Mario 64 and Zelda Ocarina Of Time but this game is gonna own them. BioShock FTW!

EDIT: Wow lol at disagrees. I got 3 and I can understand that but why ArduousAndy? Some people just want to hit the disagree button. Sometimes the system doesn't work properly.

xaphanze3990d ago

1up wouldnt give 360 games a bd score.Even if the game sucked,it would still get a fair review. lol ;P.
