The screenshots are very jaggy, but I've seen 15mn of gameplay running on X360, and I can assure you the game is visually gorgeous, on the very top of what we've seen so far.

the screenshots look pretty good. But ive heard so many amazing things about it in motion. So I agree with snoopers we need to see this thing in motion. I heard it looks like an amazing underwater city. Which sounds klass.

What's wrong with FPS ?
Commented on 2006-05-19 15:43:08
If this is like System Shock 2.... than it's not a FPS... more of a RPG.... and it will classed as a FPRPG. So anyone who thinks this is a FPS will be wrong... anyway... from the look of it, most item can be picked up just like System Shock 2. Can't wait for this game.... and it looks amazing!

how wrong can people be

cod2, pdz, quake, graw, bf:mc, condemned (sorta) = 360 fps'

then you have madden, fifa x2, nba 2k6, nba live, college hoops, mlb 2k6, tiger woods, full auto, burnout revenge, gun, king kong, tony hawks, rumble roses, amped, kameo, outift, pgr3, tomb raider, top spin 2, oblivion, blazing angels, fight night r3, doa4, ridge racer 6, n4s mw, nhl 2k6

yeh 95% are first person shooters

I can't believe people don't pick up on the meaning in his "FPS" statement. "You're not shooting so much, so it's not an FPS!" - you have to be kidding.

What he meant was obviously that a dizzying amount of games on the 360 are played from the first person perspective, and he's right! And it is sort of depressing, too!

That said, Bioshock, like noted, is one of the more interesting and unique entries in the genre. I'm a big fan of the System Shock games myself, both from a philosophical standpoint aswell as for their gameplay and horror elements.

FPS depressing?

I love FPS and I am glad more genres are branching of into a FPS style of play.

Platformers are dead too me now.

Bioshock is as much a FPS as System Shock is.

Nothing.. But apparently once something gets popular or common place certain people start thinking it must be inherently evil. Now that '1st person' games are becoming the majority all of a sudden people have a problem with it. The fact is, '1st person' is better than '3rd person'. Sorry bitches. It's true. I don't have any evidence so you'll just have to take my word for it.

I think people are missusing the acronym for First Person Shooter. It's really only a camera angle. oblivion is in first person mode, but it's totally different to COD2. As is Condemned to PDZ. One is a survival horror game except not in third person, and the other is an all-out action game (albeit a crap one).

at these screens there are some jaggies and poly-counts is not impressive but there are really great use of the post processing effetcs

i think its a 360 exclusive, infact im not sure, I know its pc aswell.

Edit: infact when it was first announced at being developed it was in ps3 and 360 sections on all sites. Then the ps3 version disapeared and Ive only ever seen 360 shots since.

I think FPS' are great, I love Halo, PDZ, Killzone (no seriously, I liked Killzone) but I don't prefer the viewpoint or mechanics over something more versatile. I don't want FPS' to disappear, but like Cliffy B (Gears of War) noted, I think there's greater scope for attachment to a character and just generally more openness towards a plethora of styles of play when you actually see your character.

Wall hug is one of the greatest and most influental additions to action games ever, and now we basically take it for granted. It's an aweome addition that I think we all agree to liking, and it's possible thanks to a third person viewpoint.

Discussing the merits of FPS vs TPS is of course rather pointless since we all have different opinions on what's best, but I think we can agree that it's better to strike a good balance between the two than to have every action game become an FPS.

The trend is turning though. Army of Two, Gears of War, GRAW, Mercenaries 2, these are all embracing the third person perspective to offer more varied styles of play and different maneuvers. I think the future's bright, regardless of which type of game you root for. It's just that right now, one camp is severely over-represented on the platform.
