The Playstation Nation will no doubt be in awe of this terrific title... Played the DEMO about a week ago.. not sure if this will be the DEMO released through PSN.

I dig the title screen... but all else doesn't mark up quite as well as on the Xbox 360.

There are many bland textures strewn through out the DEMO and a framerate hiccup here and there... Lightning isn't as impressive as well...

BUT who cares... right? Now go buy the game!!!!!!

I might purchase the PS3 version simply for the title screen.... AWESOME!

Yeah it seems like they where a bit sloppy with the conversion, but it is still a must buy for those who missed out on the pc/360 version.
Last years GOTY in my humble opinion, play it late at night in a dark room ;)

Bakutheswede, Bioshock is no survival horror to require play at night, alone and dark room, lol.

best game of last year on the 360 for me this... and thats saying something when it was up against Mass effect.

All those ps3 owners that were rating this as rubbish when it was a 360 exclusive need to swollow their pride and give it a chance as it truely is one of those rare awesome games that creep out every few years

I really cannot decide between which version to but, ps3 or PC. I like the controllers and content but it seems unclear how it holds up to the 360 version, I keep hearing equal or better in previews, then first review said worse (not by much but still) guess I may need both...?

Man... you are so right!!!! But Mass Effect still holds the crown... I have played through it 4 times!!!!!! Simply AMAZING!

If you haven't had the chance to play this yet, you have to take up this opportunity to play it. Seriously.

I still remember when I booted it up for the first time - the opening scene when you're in the water... I just couldn't believe it wasn't a cut-scene.

heh Im playing the game on max settings on the pc...and Im not sure how in the hell this game can't look the same on consoles...it looks great and plays nicely, but technically its not that impressive...especially next to crysis warhead which Im also playing.

Anyway, the game is fun, but the gunplay isnt that impressive...I also, prefer more free form environments, so on the gameplay hook its suffered next to my play throughs on crysis

The game runs at max PC details on a 360 at 60fps (not completely steady) without vsync. The only thing is if you're playing it on PC in DX10 max details, the shadow mapping is a little better & there is slightly better water 'splash' effects.

Based on these shots the PS3 version looks a little blurry, like it's being upscaled.

looks just as good as i remeber it on the 360...still gotta complete it one of these days.
Commented on 2008-09-30 22:13:40
Whatever. I'd play it if it were playstation 1 gfx. probably not true, but still. Very fond memories. especially since I sold my 360 and now it has gone into the "Wish I could play that again" state. love that.

Lol....I did the same thing. It was like "wait...I`m acutually playing now?"

I played Bioshock on the 360 last year, good storyline but boring gameplay to me.... I felt like i was fighting the same 2 enemies the whole time (crazy-ass man, crazy-ass woman) lol

But like the other guy said Mass Effect was def. my favorite game last year :D
btw any people who missed this title should at least rent it, its pretty short
Commented on 2008-10-01 02:43:15
I might rent this to see the new stuff, I'm not sure if it warrants me buying the game again if I have the 360 version.

Judging game graphic only by looking on the images/screenshots is one of the biggest mistakes on this generation of consoles.

totally agree, the textures look lower res and just doesn't look as clean and crisp as it did on the 360 version, but great game nonetheless for 1 play through and maybe another a few months later.

Nice game but a year old. I'm waiting for the sequel. Not a ps3 version. Like many of us : played it. absolutely loved it. But finished it.


Next please!
