Limited's not as cool as I thought. It's cool, but I thought I was getting a poster or something. The main thing I got is this Big Daddy toy, which is kind of heavy and sort of dumb. I just got him standing there on the table. I just watched the bonus DVD and that was sort of boring. I think the game's going to be great because everyone that made the game looks like they haven't been outside in a year cause they've been working on it so much. I'm a sucker for a metal game case too. Maybe there will be some good songs on the CD.

Anyway, don't feel bad if you miss out on the Limited, it's not a rip off, but it's not really awesome either.

I think the Big Daddy figure is badass. Most limited editions give you some shitty things. Like the Prey LE which was just two VERY small pewter figurines with no detial all silver very cheap looking and a CD you downloaded off of some very slow site and an art book with some weird cover and back that tears easy. You compare that LE to this one and it is way better.

BUT when I seen the votes they had a signed art cell or something by the team how awesome would it be to get the Big daddy figurine , the signed art , the cloth poster that my friend would be an amazing LE. The CD is worthless.

my local EBgames manager told me 12 out of the 17 limited edition bioshock big daddy figurines were shipped broken, and that it was the same at several other stores nearby but replacements were being shipped out for free......... kinda makes me laugh

The CD has two good songs on it. The remix of Sonatra's Under the Sea is really good, but I like Sonatra and trance which I know not everyone likes one, let alone two.

Yeah same thing at a couple of my stores 2! glad it didnt happen to me, though becuase the Big Daddy Figurine is waht makes the Bioshock LE! I still find it funny that all i had to 2 do was trade in 4 Nintendooo Ds games! What would be a better way to end the pokemon series of games than to trade it for BioShock!

P.S. I traded in Pokemon Diamond, Lunar Knights, Mario Cart DS, and Metriod Prime Hunters and got $72 for em!

The main thing you get in the LE is the hand painted Big Daddy figure. The soundtrack only had 3 songs on it and making of stuff is usually a watch once toss it kind of thing. So the BD figure is where it's at, too bad it sounds like there's an 80% defect rate it sounds like with the BD's getting broken in shipping due to poor packaging. Wonder how they're going to replace all those BDs since they were all hand painted.

Between the widescreen thing, the PC version only being installable once because it activates over the Interenet and the busted BD's, 2K really has a bit of a PR mess on their hands.

ya i agree but i wish they didnt use "Punk remix" they dont play the punk remixes in the game, the tv ad is not in punk remix, but all-in-all for 10 bucks its good

What I got really annoyed with is that we were told we were going to get a sweet Metal Case AND a kick ass Art Book with concept art and the like in there. But I suppose I can't complain too much since we did get a pretty awesome Limited Edition version of the game and it actually IS Limited for a change haha.


I was really looking forward to seeing the initial concepts of a Big Daddy though... I remember seeing the concepts of a Little Sister and they were freakishly alien looking. They still carried the theme over at least. Those that have gotten deep in the game will know what I'm talking about.

Actually the art book didn't make the cut - the voting on CultofRapture.com chose the Big Daddy, the soundtrack, and the making of, with a metal case.

On the other hand you can hit up CultofRapture to download the art book for free.

or if your Big Daddy was broken in the box, you get a free artbook. Eventually.
