Bioshock, Bioshock, Bioshock.... blah blah blah

Let me tell you something, this game is a bunch of jive. I don't see what everyone else is yammering about. The graphics are okay at best. There is no vast landscapes in-game, no beautiful scenic views except maybe in the very beginning, but for the most part, travel is restricted to meaningless hallways to rooms to doors (that have delayed opening to make you think that's not the way for you) and they are all dark in a creepy way.

I will however give the artistic style a thumbs up however. The enemies are original and greatly detailed, and very very VERY annoying might I add. They love to hit you in the back of the head don't they:)

The story was average and below that if I can give my point. It tells of a city and a man surviving. I couldn't understand it. Plus the man muttering and whisper things to you was pointless because not only is it difficult to hear him but why doesn't he come down and help you. Idk, but it was confusing to say the least.

Anyways if you have a PS3 pass this dark game up for something like Resistance2, or even Killzone2 if your a shooter fan. Man even Conan was more fun and less aggravating:)

I guess I bought into all the hype surrounding this game. When it arrived I was anxious to play it. Well I only got to play for two nights because that's how long it took me to beat it. That didn't annoy me that much because not many people will stay up all night to put in some serious gaming hours. The story was meh at best but the most aggravating part of this game was the scarcity of ammo....seriously its so unbelievably annoying. Anyway this game is worth a rent at most and not a buy...I am glad I passed this game up when I saw it at the store...

i wanted to like this game,i listened to all the rave reviews,and i was very excited when it finally got ported to ps3,i put the game in and i was amazed,i loved it,two hours later though i realized just how repetitive it was kill the same looking enemies over and over,go find something for someone,get the door open repeat cycle,and i had high hopes for the big daddy fights,everyone was saying how hardcore they were,they are simple to beat,and they do the same stuff over and over,the bosses on contra for the nes were better,i was let down,i sent it back the next day
