2K as a publisher has come a long way since the original Bioshock was published and their library has expanded to the point where they have put out 2 collections, the first being their "Essentials" collection.

Bioshock, of course, started it all. Visit Rapture, a city under the sea, where nothing is as it seems. It truly is one of the defining games of the PS3 generation, part action, part RPG, a great story, and well worth your time (and, largely necessary if you want to get the "Burial at Sea" DLC that is part of Bioshock Infinite). This game STILL sells for $14-20 brand new by itself (or around $25-29, when paired with Bioshock 2 in the Double Feature pack). So at $9, it's a great deal.

Borderlands, the FPS loot game that has now spawned an incredibly successful sequel. Travel to Pandora and assume one of 4 Vault Hunters who are looking for a vault of immeasurable value, with many twists and turns along the way. If you're a Diablo III type loot fan, this game will keep you just as busy. There are ways you can "try" to get to levels you shouldn't go to yet, that is, IF you can survive! It's not Dark Souls punishing but you likely WILL die. Until you get a few more levels and better weapons :) It's a cheap ($9) way to try it out and see if the series is for you, if it is, just bite the bullet and get the Borderlands GOTY edition and/or the Borderlands 2 GOTY (just released). These games are a lot of fun, especially when you have 4 of your friends along for the ride :)

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a deep, tactical game but not for everyone. If someone dies, they are GONE. Which means there are real consequences to your decision making. I got this through Playstation Plus and just wasn't able to get into it. But if you like those types of games, it's one of the best on the PS3 (and in fact, might be better then the 2 that have come since, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and XCOM Enemy Within).

BL: It's a great deal, at under $10 a game brand new for each game, and you should buy it without hesistation.

Three often referred to as top of the line games for one low, low price. It's great. I already had Borderlands and didn't want Bioshock; I only bought this for XCOM, even then this deal was a steal! If you are at all interested in at least one of these games, I say, make the plunge.

Very good value considering you get 3 full games. The only drawback I have found is that each game needs to be installed on the PS3 taking up large amounts of space. The games themselves have great stories and gameplay.

Can't see a reason NOT to buy this, 3 fantastic games at one excellently low price! All different genres too, so even if you don't like one of them, you are bound to like another in this awesome set.

Nothing too much to be said. These were (still are) collectible classics that one must have in his or her collection. XCom - if you love the original PC version you will adore this XBox version. Borderlands is only the game of the year so that's that. I am so-so on Bioshock.
