5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed every minute that this game lasted, 29 Aug. 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bioshock (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I think that listening to hype has raised peoples expectations too high for this game - in fact most games never reach that level of perfection, 'Bioshock' isn't perfect but it is stunning and I enjoyed it immensely for what it is (and not what the hype said it would be). A brilliant world to play in, a good story and many varied ways to deal with the viscious enemies. Its too short? I got thirty hours out of it on the hard difficulty level - perhaps those who completed it in a day and a half might try doing this instead of playing through on an easier level, maybe try exploring thoroughly as well (you know, really get your money's worth...). The AI isn't quite as revolutionary as the hype said? true but so what! Its still very smart and the game maintains a brilliant balance between frantic action and strategic choices - it could well be that certain things had to be toned down so that other areas still remained fun (the developers of 'S.T.A.L.K.E.R' on PC had to do the same thing - ambitious plans dont necessarily make a good game). Will it be better than 'Halo 3'? The two are going to be very different games despite being FPS's and personally I think single player Halo is incredibly overrated, it seems like most people who rave about it are referring to the multiplayer because there are tons of better games out there ('Halflife 2', 'Chronicles of Riddick' and 'Deus Ex' for example) where story meets action. Add 'Bioshock' to that list as its much better designed than both of the 'Halo' games put together! Every second I played it was well worth it and it didn't get rubbish at the end (unlike both 'Halo' games), I bought a 360 to play this game and I'm very glad I did.
