I was a little disappointed with this game for multiple reason. The big reason is because it doesn't feel like bio shock. it doesn't feel like the creepy under water city of rapture. And i think that if you gave someone this game and they never saw the name never herd about it but played bioshock 1 and 2, i bet they would never guess it was even a bioshock game. I still think its an excellent game, but its not bioshock. I think it will have been better off if they just changed the name entirely. I know it would require some tweaks because some parts of this game have rapture and use the lighthouse to explain the ending but that's not much tweaking.
Some of the more minor errors would be if you play this game for hours at a time it just gets boring. I didn't see many glitches, but the one I did see defiantly annoyed me. It was a scene where you needed Elizabeth to continue but she was stuck in a wall so i kept calling her and calling her but she never came i eventually just reset the console it set me back a ways but it worked. Overall I loved this game its a very good game and worth the money. but with those errors in MY opinion it didn't deserve a 10

Hands down one of the most gorgeous graphics I ever seen , the story fits well into the game I'm loving it , sadly no multiplayer :c but the story is long enough to keep you busy . At first I thought this game wasn't going to be a big deal but I saw more of the gameplays and let me tell you something , the wait was really worth it , if your a Bioshock fan or just started even with the series , try it out , NO better yet , Buy it because this is the Best 2013 game to be released so far trust me .
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!
