BioShock: Why a Good Thing Can Be Bad

Geezer Gamers' Jamey finished playing BioShock, and he has a few bad things to say about the game. It is too short. It lacks choices, (which narrow down to "harvest or save?") It's too easy. Its hacking is tiresome...

On the other hand, here is what Jamey likes about the game: Absolutely everything else. The sound, the graphics, the gameplay, the story. He gives the game a 9.5 out of 10, an imperfect score that reflects his frustration at an "awesome game" that is so close to yet still falling short of being perfect.

(Review score: 9.5 out of 10)

1) Its to short - It took me about 20 or so hours to beat the game on the hardest setting, if thats to short for a FPS I would hate to think how short 95% of other FPS are in this guys opinion.
2) Lack of choice - "would you kindly" play all the way through the game and pay attention to the storyline, then you won't be saying that again.
3) Too easy - well with the vita chambers I might agree, but try getting through the game without using the vita chambers, especially against the big daddies and then come back and say its to easy
4) Hacking game - you don't have to hack anything if you don't want to. It is your choice, you can pay more, kill all bots and cameras, or autohack.
5) Mature factor - Its rated M?

If the game was too easy and too short, don't you think you would have had all the achievements for it?

I checked your gamertag, in case you're wondering.

I'm about halfway now having killed ????? and while i have enjoyed the atmosphere this game clearly provides, the more than reasonable combat, i just want to stop playing now.

I'm a real big 360 fan and Halo3 was what i bought my machine for tbh but given Bio's run of 10's, i was expecting something rather special.

Bio is an 8/10 at best for me and one very big letdown.The last one was Lost planet.
