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 Does it still hold up or does it look/play outdated now?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

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.

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 .

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.

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

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.

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.
