The Games
'BioShock' game logo
You are the only survivor in a North Atlantic plane crash, floating in the icy water as the fuselage sinks beneath you. Your only hope is a lighthouse in the distance, inside of which sits a submersible capsule. You climb in and you begin your decent into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Originally constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, elite individuals, and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and biologically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. Now you’re trapped, caught in the middle of a genetic war that will challenge both your capacity to survive and your moral allegiance to your own humanity.

Key Features

  • Biologically Mod Your Body With Plasmids - Genetic augmentations that empower you with dozens of fantastic abilities. Send Electrobolts storming from your fingertips, unleash a swarm of hornets hatched from the veins of your arms, strategically turn enemies against one another with irritants.
  • Hack Devices and Systems - Reprogram enemy security bots into personal bodyguards, modify vending machines to change prices, and transform machine gun security turrets into powerless pieces of metal.
  • Upgrade Weapons at Fire-For-Effect Stations - Craft variants of ammo and plasmids by picking up materials in the city to modify them at U-Invent kiosks.
  • Turn Everything Into a Weapon - The environment, your body, fire and water, and even your worst enemies. BioShock’s free form combat options allow gameplay scenarios to be approached with a variety of weapons, active and passive plasmids, environmental objects utilization, exploitation of political alliances, or a combination of techniques. Find your style but know when to adapt.
  • Experience Rapture - Explore an incredible and unique art deco world hidden deep under the ocean, vividly illustrated with realistic water effects and truly next generation graphics.
  • The Choice is Yours - Make meaningful and mature decisions that culminate in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture to save yourself…or risk all to become their savior?

Don't get me wrong -- both of these games on their own are absolutely incredible, five-star games. However, the description here on Amazon claims that this package comes with the Game of the Year edition of Oblivion (which contains Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine). Do not be fooled however -- it does not, it instead contains the original game with neither Shivering Isles nor Knights of the Nine, despite what Amazon's description says. So, imagine my dismay when I received the bundle to give as a birthday present and found it lacking the Shivering Isles disk -- don't make the same mistake!

Bioshock and TES IV: Oblivion are two of the greatest games in a long while. Getting them both at once for a mere $30 is a great deal. Unfortunately, the version of Oblivion included is only the standard edition (Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion), rather than the GotY edition (The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition), so it does not include the Knights of the Nine or Shivering Isles expansion packs. Oblivion still rocks without these, though. Still a great deal, just less than what it is made out to be.

If you just want Oblivion, I would suggest the GotY edition, or Direct2Drive's or Steams Deluxe GotY edition which includes more DLC. However, there is no better way to get both Bioshock and Oblivion.

Both award winning games, Bioshock and Oblivion have some awesome content, but no so good gameplay.

Bioshock: I felt like I was playing an RPG in linear, hallway style levels. The innovative weapons, story and creatures kept me distracted from this fact for a little while, but then it just became tedious. I don't mind linear games, as long as I can move through them quickly. But in Bioshock, you have to go back and forth through the linear levels to get this gadget or kill this monster. This would be good in larger, open levels, but just plain boring in this game.

Oblivion: Almost the opposite is true of Oblivion. They got the open world part right, but the story is horrible. It's the worst story line of any RPG I have ever played. Some portal to "Oblivion," where there are lots of red goblins, stays open indefinitely while you wander around completing time-consuming missions that don't matter... boring...

My recommendation: put your money towards the newer titles of Bioshock Infinite or Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I think you'll have more luck there. Bioshock Infinite opened their levels up, and Skyrim developed a better story. If you have a lot of time on your hands and you don't mind wasting it, then this package is a good deal for you.

Buying the combination of these games together seemed like a steal when I first saw it.

Oblivion. As other reviewers have noted, this is the regular version of the game, not the Game of the Year edition which includes the expansions. I was fine purchasing that since I'm just a casual gamer who probably would never get around to the additional content. The open-endedness of the game is astonishing. If you're familiar with the series (I'm a Morrowind fan myself), then you'll feel right at home with Oblivion. Even though the game is beautiful in appearance straight out of the box, there are plenty of graphical mods out there for Oblivion which will really enhance your experience if you have the system to run it. My system is "okay" or "decent," and I can run it on "Very High" settings at 1280x1024 (my monitors maximum resolution unfortunately) without issues. Additionally, I've installed many, many texture packs (namely Qarl's Texture Pack 3: Redimized), and feel that although the game has become far more impressive in appearance, I still don't have any frame rate issues. My only gripes with the game is that the interface seems like it was ported directly from a console. This can be fixed with mods though.

Bioshock. I really wish I could give this game a great review, but I just can't. I haven't even been able to really experience the game for one main reason. Lots of people who are playing the game on either Vista or Windows 7 (x86 OR x64) have issues where the in-game audio stops after the first cut-scene. I'm one of those. Although there are plenty of work-arounds available on the internet, they are not cut and dry solutions that will work for everyone. Namely, they did not work for me.

I bought this just for Oblivion, I haven't played Bioshock at all because I'm wary of the DRM. Oblivion was a fantastic game. I'm a big fan of FPS/RPG games, so that helps, but it's executed well. The skills are improved by their use, which makes sense and makes it fun, but I admit to just sticking a pencil in the keyboard to keep casting a spell and coming back later. Some of the missions leave you wondering what you are supposed to be doing, but the more you play, the more you figure out how the game directs your mission progress.

If you have Windows 7, 64bit version, chances are you are not able to run Bioshock (Elder Scrolls may work). Since you have to active at the time of installation, you cannot return it or sell it (or at least have hard time doing so). So, be forewarned.
