I agree with the majority; I don't like it. I love the unique look and style of the prior Bioshock games. This cover looks like Drake's Uncharted. We don't need another one of those. I have doubts about this game, for many reasons. I've been a Bioshock fan from the beginning, own both 1 & 2, and played them both through multiple times. However, I'm going to wait until post-release to buy this one.
Pretty sure I read somewhere that the cover is reversible, with a more traditional Bioshock image on the other side. I think they are trying to reach a wider action audience w/o altering the actual gameplay (unlike Resident Evil and Dead Space which veered away from their horror roots.) If that's the case, and especially if the cover is reversible, then I think it's a good decision.
Yeah I can't believe I bought my Move controllers. Bought it to use on Resistance 3, but never did. Also bought the sharpshooter gun which I never opened the box, lol. Used the PS Move only like once or twice and just stored it away. I doubt I'll use them on this game either.
Oh yeah that one was a good deal. I got the Sports Champion bundle(still want to get Sports Champion 2 for the bowling). Those games are pretty fun. Also got The Fight: Lights Out which is also pretty fun. And got Sorcery on the cheap at Newegg, still haven't played that one except for the Demo which was pretty boring for me anyways, E3 made it look like loads of fun though when 1st announced which made me want to buy a PS Move to begin with. Oh well. Live and learn.
I had hope for Sorcery, but ultimately it's a disappointment. And that was just the demo. Sports Champions was a blast, I liked how it had a better variety of games to choose from... my friends and I loved getting together for a couple rounds of Bocce. By the time I finally got around to Move though, Wii felt worn out and Kinect wasn't too appealing. It wasn't bad, just not for me though.
I watched an interview with Ken Levine and he says that the cover art is reversible. So the one with Booker Dewitt and the other one with the Songbird will both be accessible with purchase of the game.
So, a lot of people preferred that the old cover, eh? The older one simply had clouds and sky. >.>
Well, regardless. the game is is phenominal. Of course, the only flaw I can see is that you cannot properly prepare for the final boss fight (it doesn't seem like there really is any boss fights either anyway). This game also allows me to enjoy the previous 2 as well since it's not supposedly better, just different.
After a good week or so with Infinite, I definitely appreciate the alternate cover a lot more. And yes, the game is awesome. Honestly, it surpassed all of my already-high expectations I had for it, and it just might be as good (if not better) than the original Bioshock.
