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 Does it still hold up or does it look/play outdated now?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.

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

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 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
