XBW 360 Bioshock Review - 9.4/10

After playing through Bioshock, here is what Xbox World 360 had to say about it:

To paraphrase the first in an endless line of self-promoting plaques built by Andrew Ryan, the egotistical ruler of Rapture: in the realm of videogaming, there are no gods or kings - only men. See, the power of the Xbox 360 gifts developers the ability to create offbeat worlds that wouldn't exist in Lovecraft's wildest cheese-fuelled fantasies. But, they're not always interested in tapping into their imagination. More often, they're more concerned with getting Hitler's 'tache just right, or mixing their colour palettes for the perfect shade of washed-out WWII greeny-brown.

Don't get us wrong, we think WWII is a top laugh and everything and that, but the Normandy landing's been on our TV screens more times than those 'Quote Me Happy' adverts. So: plenty.

Bioshock is the solution...

XBW 360 probably gave it a lower score than what the game deserves, so the game won`t look better than HALO 3.

crazy but might be true

[edit] how in all the world did you end up with two bubbles? I dont really see anything wrong with your comments

@HeavyWeight. I doubt Halo would look better than Bioshock, it wasn't intended to be, just look at the difference in scale. But I would agree that most are underestimating it. It might actually work in its favor.

HeavyweightInTheGame3535d ago

If what you're saying is true that would be good. If Halo 3 looks better, people will see the power of the 360 and stop calling Halo 3 Halo 2.5 and crap like that. This game already looks amazing and has some crazy graphics.

TheMART3536d ago

Was already known. The lowest score on Bioshock:

PC Gamer UK: 9.5
OXM UK: 10
GameSpy: 10
Alternative Press: 10
Xbox World: 9.4
Gamers: 9.8
Gametrailers: 10
PCZone: 9.6
AP Mag: 10
Primotech 4.5 out of 5
GameInformer: 10

Eurogamer: 10
Gamer.tv: 10
Console Gameworld: 9.9
1UP: 10
IGN: 9.7
TeamXbox: 9.5
Gamepro: 10

I think they wanted to be seen as unbiased and deducted 0,5 points for that reason if you see the other reviews :P

I know the score was already known, but the full review hadn't been posted so HA!!!

JK, wow...that's an impressive list of reviews.

Keep spreading the Bioshock love, TheMART!!

Raptors3535d ago

Thanks Mart. I was just about to ask if this game has gotten anything lower than a 9 yet.

Ri0tSquad3535d ago

loved the demo even though I thought it was kinda hard at first. How do you unlock the hardest difficulty? Awesome reviews.

jay33535d ago

To get the hardest difficulty, you go to your gamercard and i think it's Game Defaults you should go to, change to default difficulty settings to hard. Then when you come up to the difficulty screen, HARD will already be highlighted so just press A, if you move the highlietery thing on medium or easy you won't be able to go back to hard.

Have fun!

OMG Monday night I wont' get any sleep! I am constantly thinking of this game. I haven't been this worked up about something in ages.

PS360PCROCKS3535d ago

Yeah join the club man. But from my perspective, have that same kind of anticipation and be so close yet your 360 is broken sitting on your entertainment center.

FirstknighT3535d ago

This game is the most highest rated game ever! The 360 is an incredible and powerful gaming console. The AAA list keeps on growing and growing. And we still have Mass Effect and Halo 3 coming soon. WOW!!!

Sony boys...do yourself a favor and stop your whining and complaining...just jump in already. Buy yourself a 360 and start playing the best games. Pick this up and pick up Madden! It's easily one of the best Maddens in years.

It's all love on the 360 side :) It's all complaining and crying on the ps3 side :(
