I played this and beat it to make sure I was not missing something, but I don't get all the hype. The graphics were averaged at best and the story was interesting, but it was hard to hear the audio tapes. Maybe back in 2008 this was impressive, but playing it in 2013 with other developers using the PS3 to it's max I was just not impressed with the visuals.

Please wait... now instaling Bioshock FOREVER

I don't know if GameFly burned me with this title or totally saved my butt.
Let me preface by saying I was aware this game had long loading times; but it also got Game of the Year when it came out, so it was given it's due patience.
I was expecting bad loading but not this horrible! I found the game unplayable because there was so much in game lag! Whats even worse, EVERY time you load up the game, to start playing it has to install! And I'm not talking about the mandatory updates... I installed version 1.10 & restarted the system. Then after the studio credits ran it "INSTALLS" again "Please wait... now installing Bioshock " while retro advertisements play. (though I don't believe install is the right term for this, loading seems more appropriate). This then takes like 10 minutes minimum! Once you finally get to the start game screen and get playing your frustration and patience have already maxed out. Then the game play lags too! "Game Over Man, Game Over".
Was the game badly coded, scratched, or an old version, or is how every Bioshock is?!
