Rapture Survives a Port to PS3 and Still Looks Great

It has been over a year since BioShock's original release, and it is still a magnificent game. This version is a completely faithful transfer, and a great way for PS3 owners to experience this gaming masterpiece. Unfortunately, there is really no incentive to re-purchase for anyone who played the 360 or PC versions. A super-hard difficulty mode has been added for fanatics, but the most notable new features are the mandatory installation and the ability to pay for exclusive downloadable challenge rooms when they release on the PlayStation Network. BioShock was undoubtedly the best game of 2007, but after a year with so little extra polish, its luster has diminished slightly.

I purchased it right when Infinite came out, and was not sure what to expect, but it has completely blown my mind. The unique gameplay would’ve been...

    Bioshock absolutely blew me away. The enviornment has forever changed the way I look at creativity in a virtual backdrop. But no, this is more than virtual. Once you enter Rapture you are Jack, a badass who just wants to leave, but has no choice. Now lets get to the review: Story/Plotline: 10/10 Outstanding...

    I honestly love everything about this game, except for i think that the graphics could be better. Like when splicers talk their mouths look nothing like they should when moving. Otherwise i love the plot and setings. The whole underwater word is just amazing. Sander Cohen is my favorite character along...
