Does BioShock still hold up?
 
I have never played the original (Or any for that matter) BioShock but have been tempted recently. Does it still hold up or does it look/play outdated now?

Absolutely, if anything the story in that game is still better then any campaigns today. That game was made back when developers didn't try and shoehorn MP in a game or mass produce games every year....people actually cared about what they were making, not how much they were going to make.

So yeah buy it and enjoy.

Yep, this game is awesome. Story, gameplay and looks are all great. As the other poster said, buy it and enjoy it :woop:

As the previous two posters said, it still does the job very well :) Amongst my all time favourite games, I love the atmosphere,characters, story and the visuals. Fully recommend it.

Thanks guys, I've never heard a bad word said about this game so will have to pick it up.

Roachus Maximus 04-02-2013 01:32 PM

Have u got it yet?

Personally I think it's better then infinite! No lie!

Simlaurel 04-06-2013 05:02 AM

This game stands the test of time. I'm playing through infinite right now, and I'm thinking about playing through for a 5th time, just to experience it all again.

EquiinoX 04-09-2013 10:05 PM

I love infinite! but for me, Rapture was the beginning of a crazy world. such a kick ass game

Deadsea 18 04-22-2013 06:05 AM

Hell YES man amazing game for sure.

Effy 05-15-2013 08:08 PM

Amazing game, even after I got all the achievements I still did a few more playthroughs just for fun.

Skillet 05-15-2013 09:25 PM

In my opinion, the graphics aren't aging well. Though there aren't too many games that have graphics that have stood the test of time.

Everything else about the game is still spot on though. I still play through it from time to time, and it's one of those games that even after completing it 5 times, when you decide to press that New Game selection on the main menu, you just can't toss it aside until you've seen the credits again.

Just started playing for the first time and got hooked right away. The atmosphere is amazing, gameplay is smooth and control layout is nice. I picked up the rapture edition so I can play the first two before Infinite.

Just ended the original like week ago for first time, it's a blast to this day.
Played it when it launched but didn't liked it that much at that time due to not being a fan of such type of games but since now I am a mature gamer, LOVED IT!!!


Am on Brass Balls Run, not that hard but annoying the save everywhere makes you do strange things you are always redoing to improve even if you have resources lolz

I'm with you. Played it on release when I didn't care About achievements. I absolutely loved it. Now I'm going through it to mop up achievements and am loving the game even more. I'm actually taking the time and listening to all the audio logs .

The graphics are ok but you do have to remeber that they are running on 5 year old technology. Which is fine for me. I'm currently going for brass balls and its definitely not that diffucult .

Great game overall .

SicklyPlague 05-30-2013 04:31 AM

Everything still holds up well suprisingly, decided to play it again to finish off everything except brass balls and beat it on hard and its still a blast to play.

Direkin 05-30-2013 07:35 AM

Only started playing it a couple days ago. Having a blast with it. So yeah, I'd say it stands up.

DeaDpOoL xx 05-30-2013 07:43 AM

Hell yeah bioshock one still looks dope 2 not as much I think but they used a dif engine and dif team on that game so wasn't as impressive looking.

Spiral 462 10-06-2013 09:28 AM

I just played BioShock 1 and 2 this year, and they were both AWESOME. Sure, the graphics might be a little dated looking, but honestly you don't even notice. The game is so much fun! I'm really glad I happened to try it, I fell in love with Rapture and the Big Daddy's and Little Sisters. It's never too late to try this amazing series from the beginning :)

LeLogan 10-15-2013 07:13 PM

The graphics havent aged that much, it still looks great, and the story!...

H0p3sfalL 10-16-2013 01:20 AM

Of course it does. Do yourself a solid and get it :)

xXjdooksXx2 02-08-2014 07:21 PM

Definitely, still an awesome game, you'd be missing out if you didn't.

halomike927 02-13-2014 02:17 AM

One of the few titles I own that is worth playing multiple times :woop:

WoodsMonk 02-13-2014 12:21 PM

Just replayed this a few weeks ago, Still one of my favourite games. :)

JohnDeere6969 03-06-2014 08:27 PM

I just did another play through in January just for fun, it was awesome. Probably in my top 5 games at this point.

Thai J 04-18-2014 07:43 AM

This is my favorite game of all time. I got the 1100G, the the Platinum Trophy and then right before BioShock Infinite came out I got another 1100G on my secondary profile. I was surprised at how well this game held up. It didn't feel like a 7 year old game.

CHIRUNO99 04-18-2014 10:08 AM

It's pretty good, better than 2 imo and just as good as Infinite, kinda like the Deus Ex series where the first game was amazing and the third game is amazing, of course what happened between is a lot worse than Bioshock 2.

SOMEONE SPAZZY 06-21-2014 05:46 AM

totally this is still my favorite campagin i have ever played.
