I was rather "Shocked" at how Boring this 3rd installment of the Noted Bioshock Franchise was... an 8.9?


The Graphics are the first thing wrong with the game, everything is HUGE, this is 2005 Graphics in a 2013 World, coins look like pizza pies and the whole landscape is not rendered reverentially like in 'Rapture' the underwater city that was so amazing and beautiful in the 1st two Bioshock games... instead this 'City In The Clouds' created by an Angry Prophet (Comstock) is hazy and really rather hard to see.

The story is Pedestrian at best about a pretty blue eyed girl (Elizabeth) being held captive and her Hero (Dewitt) who needs to save her... She looks like she's just stepped out of Disney or Pixar. She doesn't do much other than get in the way, she is a 'Suckers' dream come true. There is confusion galore in the 'Plot' if you can call it that, the Prophet often spouts his gibberish but he never actually becomes a threat...

On and on it goes... it's not a hard game to finish at all but in the end this Bioshock is a real mess!

I give it a 3 in Hopes of lowering that erroneous 8.9 that you all put up there. I pride myself on Trusting my fellow Gamefliers but here you've all gone terribly wrong!

5.6 is the best this Bioshock should receive.

I believe that the content of the game, story and otherwise has a calming if innocuous effect upon young and old 'minds' that are easily fooled by a harmony that just doesn't add up... let's not fall so easily and be a bit more Critical even though we are being 'pandered' to intellectually!

My hype surrounding this game was crazy. I preordered this upon the announcement before E3 2011. This was an important game for me, and I can say that every one of my expectations was shattered. The gameplay is smooth and extremely satisfying, the art and textures are all beautiful (even on console), and the story is a wonderfully crafted writing about multiple different themes. Don't even bother putting it in your Q. Just go buy it. This is one of the best games that has come out in a long time.

Bioshock 2 has the best combat system of the 3...easily.

Bioshock Infinite is very good, but does not live up to the critical hype train that its been made out to be. The ending is also a big dissapointment....imo.

Bottom line is Rapture is just better than Columbia, big daddies are better than the heavy hitters, the vigors are boring (i use electric 95% of the time) and the Gear is not memorable.

Anyone who says Infinite is better than the original has fallen for the hype and convinced themselves out of the truth.

Solid 8!!!
