Bad

I'm in the minority, but I didn't like it.

This game is exceptionally well-made, and most gamers will thoroughly enjoy it. My problem with it is just that I have never been a fan of the half-eaten, disease-riddled zombie corpses jumping out of the dark and then exploding in a burst of gore when you kill them. I never liked the old Resident Evil games (although the new one was excellent on PS3) or anything like that. This is my personal bias, and I know that this doesn't bother most of the people who will play Bioshock.

On another note, the searching for items and hacking functions become VERY tedious very quickly. The controls could have been a lot easier, too.

I have to admit that I expected alot more from this game. I have always felt that you dont need top level cutting edge graphics to make a good game, what you do need however is a good storyline! I mean wow, youre on a plane and the plane crashes, and you just randomly walk up on shore and take a transport to the bottom of the ocean. Thats the whole opening! I mean, who would do that! There is no real supporting cast, no real interaction between two people that is intelligent, no real cut scenes, the game just goes on and on and on. It's very repetitave and gets old fast, in fact the only redeaming quality in my opinion is the graphics, but like I said, Graphics are not everything. Hack this safe, hack this machine, hack this turrent, hack this door, over and over and over. Now don't get me wrong, if you loved this game great, this is just how I felt about it. I just don't get all the hype, I love F.P.S. like call of duty, dead space, and so on. but in Bioshock you don't even know why you are there at the bottom of the ocean.

Also the music sucks and load time takes forever. Game is boring. Get confused alot. dont know where to go. Seen better graphics. Kill big daddy and steal his daughter and eat her heart to get adam points. Game has too much in it to be good.
