Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Let's keep this sweet, organized and fair.

UNDISPUTED FACT:
BIOSHOCK will only install for a limited number of times (it was 3 but - after a deluge of eMails and bad reviews - it was upped to 5). So, if you install it you will be reluctant to uninstall once finished and will have to carry those 9GB on your HardDrive for a long time. On top of that, its resale value is down the drain the moment one pops the box open...
Even after the patch that removed the activation limit, uninstalling still leaves behind certain irremovable folders that will make sure it can be re-established in the future.
So one has to ask: even after paying $50 for it, WHO ACTUALLY OWNS MY COPY?

UNDISPUTED FACT:
The game utilizes an overzealous version of SecuROM 7+. They either activated all its available options or had a special version custom made. No other game company dared behaving in such heavy-handed way. This means that if your computer has more than one disc drive (or even one but non-DRM certified) it may block them, whereas the game may not even install if you are running virtual drives or have certain media-burning software installed (even NERO has been known to be considered ..."pirate-ware"!)

DISPUTED FACT :
It has been widely reported that BIOSHOCK installs a RootKit. Both MICROSOFT's ROOTKIT DETECTION TOOL and AVG ANTI-VIRUS detected either the RootKit or its actions. Recently, AVG was made to release a special update (just for BIOSHOCK) to ignore this alert.
In hacker lingo, to "take someone's Root" means to insert a procedure that "will allow the intruders to maintain root access (highest privilege) on the system without the system administrator even seeing them".

1.0 out of 5 stars Too many problems November 29, 2007
By Datus
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Beware if you have an overclocked system. This game will blue screen. Game also has very weak support for Nvidia 7 series cards. In particular with High Detail Shaders which also causes the game to blue screen. I can't speak for everyone of course but I know that myself and many others have these issues still (10/29/07) and there is still no patch. These problems are highlighted on most tech forums including the 2k games forum.

Now for the game.

My first impression was WOW! Graphics were impressive albeit somewhat grainy as AA is not supported. Lots of very cool water and blur effects. The atmosphere is somewhat original. Has a 1940s/50s art deco thing going. Victrola playing in the background, Nazi scientists, surgical theaters... the whole shebang. That aspect of the game was very well done. The rest of it though, I can only sum it up as "sensory overload". Like many games of this sort (The Suffering 2 for instance), all the "psycho-physics" eventually start to numb your senses and the attempts at "shock" just become tiring. The swearing, screaming, brutality, and sexuality, it all just gets boring after a while.

When you couple all that with the really weird copy protection - this game is NOT worth the aggravation.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Orgasmic Experience, but Where is the Replay Value? December 21, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bioshock is a terrific FPS with some unique artistic elements that I have never seen in other games. It ran very smoothly on my quad core and GeForce7950GT, and I don't remember ever having crashes or other major problem.

There're some small bugs with version 1.0, such as widescreen cutoffs and inability to arrange the plasmids on the scroll menu, but i assume the patch should have fixed all those things including adding a new plasmid.

The graphic design is just perfect, everything is visually stunning; the story is very cultured and has a delectable twist close to the last 1/3 of the game.

That being said, I do have some complaints. I think because the art deco design of this game is so well-done, the game makers intentionally made all resources scarce, as to force the player to scavenge every possible niche for items conducive for survival, thereby maximizing the experience so their hard work doesn't go to waste. Due to this, I had to explored every crevice of Rapture, and enjoyed the game's beautiful art works and architecture to the full. Unfortunately, this means if i were to play the game again, nothing would surprise me or give me nearly as much enjoyment as the 1st time through, since i have seen and done everything.

The game tried its best to offer some replay value, there're a variety of plasmids and tonics you can pick and choose, but once you find all of them (which i did the 1st time playing) you basically will use only some of them habitually because they perform optimally in certain situations. This means if you were to play the game again, you would most likely make the same choices, unless you just want to aggravate yourself just for the sake of equipping plasmids and tonics in situations that don't call for them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Game - Too many problems running it September 6, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'd have to say, one of the best games in a long time. Great story, great features, weapons, enemies...yada yada yada. The game itself is amazing. UNFORTUNATELY, the game is written so poorly or was rushed or whatever, but it crashes like you wouldn't believe. You can have a fully loaded system, and it still finds a way to crash. I have Windows Vista Ultimate (no, that's not the problem), 2GB of DDR2-6400 RAM, Nvidia 7900GT, Tons of SATA Drives, onboard HD sound...etc. All the latest in DirectX and RealTek audio drivers, and still no luck. It's probably crashed 30 times in the first week of playing the game. Yes, there are people out there who are lucky, but it's rare. Just check out the 2k forums and other blogs/websites, and you'll see pages of complaints. Some people recommend lowering the resolution, some say the sound... nothing works. Imagine having to lower the graphics quality down lower, and the detail lower, to play a PC game in 2007 with PCs that are well-equipped for the current software? Joke and a half. They'd better come out with a patch or fix soon. Very disappointing!

While I think it's a great game, I don't rank it as one of my 5 star favorites. Why? Personal taste. If you like FPS with an RPG feel this will probably blow you away.
