They can make a game about let's say....Paris Hilton and her dog tinkerbell and slap a exclusive xbox 360 logo on it and everyone and their mother calls it a Masterpiece!!! That's BS this game is NOT that great!

It is one of the slowest FPS without online.

and it is boring too.

I played for 3/4 hour then gave up on my PC version

nasim is right played it on my friends 360 and it was slow and boring and even my friend admitted it stunk and he loves warhawk splitscreen

darkequitus4158d ago

Nasim/Larry007 does not even have a PC, or a PS3 he is alway raving on about.

Nasim, it is about time you do the world a favour

i gotta say, the game is a lot of fun, but I'm having trouble getting into it. Is it a wonderful game? Hell yeah. Does it deserve a 10 from anyone? Hell, no.

EDIT: @CodeMonkey (below) if that was directed at me, I can assure that I have BioShock for the PC, in fact i bought the Limited Edition the day it came out. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it isn't one of the best games to come out this year, but I think games should be rated based on the history of gaming as a whole, not just is it good compared to the games that have come out around it. I would honestly rate the game, from a completely unbiased standpoint (I play the games for the games, not for some company) at an 8.5 or 9, and I think any higher is from someone who's either a.) happy to finally have a good, original FPS to play in the recent months, even years of generic FPSs, or b.) rating with their fanboy goggles on. Also, assuming that it was directed toward me, the fact that you had enough free time and motivation to look up my posting history to "check which side I'm on lawlz", tells me that you need a more constructive outlet for your time.

so I have to question how you've played this. Perhaps on the PC, but I don't give you that much credit... Ignored.. gCM

Lol @ the haters.

Now before you start calling me an Xbox 360 fanboy, let me state that I AM NOT. I am a fan of both the PS3 and 360 and actually like the PS3 better (my opinion). But, I must defend the game that I LOVE.

The fact that you said "slap a 360 logo on it" shows that you probably have never even played the game, and that you are just bashing it because it's only on 360.

Please, lay off the hatorade and give credit to where it is due.

Texas GMR4158d ago

even though I think your a total f*cking idiot.

The beginning of the game is a little slow getting started, but stay with it a little longer and it get's really good.

I don't know if it deserves a 10, but it shouldn't go below 9 on anyones score card. If it does, your a moron. That's not an opinion, that's a fact.

Do any of you not recognize satire?

but even though it was quite linear, it was very immersive and had an interesting setting.

i found it to be a lot more fun than game i have played recently.

Edit: and yeah the lack of dying kinda made it a little easy.

RadientFlux4158d ago

Bah most action/fps games can be classified as a "Disney Ride"

For the entire article he was reaching for reasons to hate Bioshock. If you can basically do that with every game.

IE: In (enter action title here) how come the grunt bad guys take only a few shots but your character can take up to 20.

It's a game, it's not supposed to realistic.

tplarkin74158d ago

People will dig for inconsistencies in the Bible, too. If you seek the truth, however, it is there.

Bioshock does things that no FPS has done before, and it does them well. It's a good game.

abg4284158d ago

Excuse me tplarkin7 what s does bioshock do that no other game has?? Please explain, and show me a video link if possible, thank you

Anything but Cute4158d ago

Is that true? You feel real short in this game?

snoop_dizzle4158d ago

this would be reviewed by him as the greatest game ever. :P

monoknacker4158d ago

was quite humourous but he seemd to forget the fact that games are about having fun which other reviews suggest bioshock delivers in bucket loads.
