You Know What Game Is Ridiculously Awesome? 10/10 for BioShock

Wired gives Perfect 10 to BioShock.

"Although it looks like your typical first-person shooter, BioShock is one of the freshest gaming experiences in years, expertly blending addictive gameplay with deft storytelling. But this is no art-house cult game: It does it all while staying within the confines of polished, mass-market entertainment."

"BioShock is an intensely beautiful game. The textures and artwork are high-quality and are used very sparingly. There are no repeated rooms: Every single chamber in Rapture looks different from the last and has been intricately detailed with individualized set pieces. The late-'50s-style posters that decorate the walls add an authentic period ambience -- and also subtly foreshadow elements of the story."

"BioShock is one of the scariest games I've ever played, thanks both to the creepy atmosphere and a few very specifically chosen freak-out moments..."

"I do have some minor complaints. While you can "hack" the vending machines that sell you ammo and items, the mini-puzzle game you play to do it quickly gets boring. And saving your progress takes too long, which hurts BioShock's otherwise deep immersion."

"But everything is redeemed in the end, with a plot twist that not only turns the game's story on its head but is actually a wry commentary on the single-mindedly violent nature of videogames in general. I won't spoil it here, but BioShock's politically charged plot will be discussed for years to come."

Wired: Expertly told story; gorgeous presentation; deeply varied gameplay
Tired: Poor machine-hacking, game-saving systems

Wired FTW! for giving this masterpiece the 10 it deserves. I'm still mad at Gamespot for giving 9/10... but hey they gave WarioWare 9/10 while giving Zelda TP 8.8/10 which says something about their IQ...

9/10 is an excellent score coming from GameSpot.

MK_Red4163d ago

GameSpot is NOT tough, they're just stupid. How on earth WarioWare Wii could score more than Zelda Wii? And they gave Gears Of War 9.6 while everyone knows that BioShock deserves more than Gears.

That particular reviewer from Gamespot who reviewed Bioshock is tough on reviews. He's also the one who gave Zelda a 8.8 (I agree with him on that though), although he did give Gears of War a 9.6

NoiseBringer4163d ago

I dont agree, game is good deserves 8.8, i`ve play demo graphics are amazing.... atmosfere?? i was more terified when i played DOOM3 specialy when you are HIGH... :))))))
For me DOOM3 still rules and they bring more than bioshock now....

How can you say any game is better than Bioshock, just from playing the demo? The game gets better and scarier the more you progress. I don't think you have the right to judge a game by its cover (demo).

socomnick4163d ago

I just beat the game and I got to say its not better than gears of war. Bioshock has no replay value I beat the game with the good ending and man the story was badass but still no replay value it deserved a 9/10
