5.0 out of 5 stars Works on Steam May 18, 2012
By Jesse A
Verified Purchase
Game codes easily redeem on steam. Make sure you're buying this version, the online code. You can go to Steam -> Games -> Product Key and paste it in there, and it adds it.

While I understand this utilizes SecuROM (online activation), $7.49 for both Bioshocks (the price right now) is more than fantastic. We need more deals like this for older games. You're buying the game anyway so it shouldn't matter what security since you bought the games. But then again, I don't have virtual drives or Nero so I don't have any problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific original & earnest but lacking sequel June 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
The first BioShock was a masterpiece: a work of art accompanied by haunting atmosphere and delicate, yet spectacular score. It keeps a special place in my heart. The sequel wants to satisfy all customers, ending up feeling much more generic. By the way, a solid DLC Minerva's Den (not included) justifies the purchase.

* P.S: BioShock 2 doesn't support Xbox 360 pad.

I felt like I should write this to help balance out the negetive reviews. First off I would like to just say that the games are very fun, and I found to be addictive. So if you enjoy creepy shooters these are the games for you.

Now that that is out of the way, I feel like there is a lot of mis-information floating around here that I would like to address. Firstly, only Bioshock 2 requires two forms of validation. Once you enter the code for Bioshock 1 into Steam you downloadit and play. Simple as that.

Bioshock 2 is slightly more complicated. You enter the code into Steam, then download the game, exactly like the first one. Once it's downloaded and you try to play it it needs to validate again. You MUST use the product key that Steam gives you, not Amazon. Amazon's key won't work, so to those of you who were very angry with Amazon, don't be. You need to use the product key provided by STEAM.

On a finle note, I can understand why some people are angry that Bioshock 2 uses Windows Live, it is just another thing to sign into...but it's not that big a deal, and for those of you that have and use X-box Live, you'll love it. It gives you all the achivements as if you were playing on X-box Live, and you can chat with frinds while playing.

All in all a great deal, and it's not nearly the hassle everyone is making it out to be. Buy it and enjoy a fun game!

5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone having compatibility issues! May 19, 2013
By J
Verified Purchase
Hello hopefully everyone can see this and not be disappointed. Anyways I came across this problem where Bioshock would not open at all and I knew older games did this too. It seems that Bioshock doesn't play well with Windows 7 so what you have to do is run it in compatibility mode Windows Vista (service pack 2). This is will enable you to play it A-Okay. To do this you'll need to find:

1.)'Bioshock.exe' which for me it's in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Bioshock\Builds\Release
2.)Right click on 'Bioshock.exe'
3.)Choose properties and click the tab that says compatibility
4.)Click 'Run this program in compatibility mode' and Choose Windows Vista (Service Pack 2)
5.)After that, click okay.

-If you need anymore help please do comment!
-Note if Windows Vista (Service Pack 2) doesn't work then try Windows XP (Service Pack 2)since it's one of the 2 OS in the 'ReadMe.txt'
'Bioshock is amazing and still trying to get through it! Can't wait to play Bioshock 2! Anyways for the price of $4.99, that's a steal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing games, technical issues. July 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
Both of these games are amazing. However, Bioshock 2 comes with the AWFUL Games for Windows Live, which causes many installation obstacles. Bioshock doesn't work properly with Windows 7, so you have to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows.

And for those complaining about Steam, ignore themes. None of these issues have to do with Steam service, rather, compatibility with Windows.

Amazing games once you get past the technical issues residing with them.

More like 4.5 stars, though.

I was a bit worried about Bioshock 1 not working on Win 7, but after countless hours of gaming, I can confidently say it works like a charm. Hope to start Bioshock 2 soon
