IGN Reviews Bioshock 9.7 out of 10

Check out IGN's review.

"Closing Comments
There is art here, despite what many would say isn't possible with games, from Roger Ebert to game designers like Hideo Kojima. But it's in BioShock--it's in the gorgeously realized, watery halls of Rapture. It's in a Little Sister's expression of thanks when you choose to save her, or the utter silence if you harvest instead. It's in the way the characters develop, in the testimonials of the recording boxes you pick up along the way. It's in the way the narrative is structured, and the way it blends so seamlessly with the action. Irrational had a clear vision with this game, something pulled off with remarkable precision in every department. They didn't just deliver something that's fun to play, a criterion so often cited as the benchmark of what makes a game worthwhile. BioShock stands as a monolithic example of the convergence of entertaining gameplay and an irresistibly sinister, engrossing storyline that encompasses a host of multifaceted characters. This is an essential gaming experience."

Go check out the "Game for Windows" list and let me know how many games are on the PS3 and Mac. Yes, there are some.

Publisher is what counts. Not "GFW" label.

You would wait until IGN gave its review.

Now that it has given it a 9.7 WOW, what do you say now?

EDIT- yeah, you're right Snoop. I waited 8 hrs and he still hasn't replied.

snoop_dizzle4058d ago (Edited 4058d ago )

he never replies.

let me guess though, he will say that Its cartoony and Msoft paid them to say that.

However Nasim since your probably using a Msoft run PC(maybe a Mac with bootcamp) and a Msoft game(games for windows) that game being Bioshock, why would you? Considering how bad Msoft is.

Looks like the 360 has another great game!!! The 360 keeps on destroying the ps3 in game quality.

While the sony duds are whining and wasting their time protesting the ps3s Madden, I'll be playing one of the greatest games ever created!!!!

Oh it's great times for 360 owners :) ....and sorry times for ps3 owners :(

Eat your heart out Sony!
