BioShocking Reviews

August 18th, 2007

I should probably begin this article with a list of review scores for Bioshock. The reviews are in and the game isn’t doing too bad by the major sites:

IGN – 97.0%
GameSpy – 5 out of 5
Game Informer – 10 out of 10
Eurogamer – 10 out of 10
TeamXbox – 95.0%
1UP – 10 out of 10
Official Xbox Magazine UK – 10 out of 10
GamePro – 5 out of 5
Xbox World 360 Magazine UK – 94.0%

So if you haven’t already, check out one of the reviews. To be honest I wasn’t really anticipating the game that much due to its nature(a 360/PC FPS title..meh). But from the reviews that I have read the game sounds like gold.

On the topic of reviews, Rune Factory has just been released and has reviews to accommodate that as well. Rune Factory is the DS Harvest Moon + battling elements game. Thankfully the game is a return to the original quality gameplay mechanics. I haven’t played a HM title since the SNES title, so Rune Factory might be another must buy.

Square Enix has just opened up a new website for the Dragon Quest IV remake for the DS. The site contains a number of screenshots displaying the new vibrant 2.5D perspective which is a nice step up over the original title.

  • I had a feeling Bioshock would be great. Hate to say it. But I told you so. 😛

  • um, dan, you forgot the gamespot review (90%)

    its the best review that ive seen so far because they actually address some of the negative points of the game. btw ive been watching it since christmas.

  • Hey Nick(right?), thanks for the comment.

    The GS review came out after I posted the article. GS generally take their time with reviews to ensure that they are of terrible quality[/GS hate].

    The GameTrailers VR is up so I recomend taking a look:

  • yeah, usually I don’t trust gamespot on their reviews, but they manage to discuss the bad points of games, which can help me make an informed desision.
