This game has clearly been overhyped, mainly because it is the third story in the series. Nevermind that it has little to do with the 1st story. Now you're in the sky, fighting on rollercoaster rails... ugh. Nothing is different about the gameplay here. Just check every nook and cranny for power-ups and keep shooting. Oh, and it's linear game play, just in case you were wondering. I could understand if it was a wide open world, but this... this is just pretty rubbish. Sure, this is a fun game, and very pretty to look at, but there is NOTHING new here, no unconventional story, no epic change in how shooters get played. Clearly, this game barely deserves an 8 out of 10. It will be a blip in history within 3 months, even if it does, for some stupid reason, win game of the year.

I would have to say this has been one of my favorite games, I have played this year. I have just recently obtained gamefly and I am so glad that I got this game first. I had never played any of the bioshock games before hand, and now I am going to go back and check them all out! I started the game with an open mind and I wanted to have a good time with it. There were times in the game where I had trouble, or thought they could have done better with the game, but the ending is what sealed the deal for me as one of my new favorite games. I have a youtube channel(not spam) and I record and do gameplays for all kinds of games, and this is will be one of my longest and best series I have ever done on my channel. I highly recommend getting this game, even if you have never played the games before, now to go out and buy the other Bioshocks :D
