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.
