I have never played the first Bioshock game. In fact, my first taste was when I tried Bioshock Infinite. I borrowed it from a co-worker, played about 20 minutes or so and quit the game and promptly gave it back to him a few days later. I didn’t like that it took place in the 50s and 60s. I have nothing against those time periods; I love the music, but I didn’t like it as a setting for the game.
I can’t give this a proper review. I really dislike this series, and I’m not a huge fan of shooters either. I had bought it solely from a suggestion of another picky gamer, and from the cover alone I thought it’d be better than Infinite, but it was the same, just different characters and slightly later in the 1900s. I did slog through the game as fast as I could. At one point I didn’t care anymore about saving the Little Sisters. I just killed them for ADAM so I could finish the game.
The ending was the worst part for me. The “boss” fight was just tedious as I was constantly running out of ammo and had to run around and collect money so I could buy more.
Things I liked about the game:
- …… um. Nothing other than the cover of the game looks cool.
Things I disliked about the game:
My star rating? 1 out of 5.
It’s great if you loved the game or the series, it just wasn’t for me.
