The 3 games in the Bioshock series are basically a follow-up to the System Shock series of games, from every point of view. Their gameplay consists of shooting, exploding, electrocuting, freezing, burning, possessing, stunning with bees or crows, photographing (yes, you read that right) and last but not least maiming with whatever object comes handy (honorable mentions include a wrench - that can prove better than the rest of the weapons with the right setup, sports equipment - fans may know what I'm particularly talking about, random junk and even your enemies' bodies) hundreds of psycho -goons and occasionally the perhaps less crazier and irredeemably evil, morally ambiguous major antagonists. This is but part of the charm that makes this series so adored by its fans, though. The rest of it comes from beautiful, unique and creative environments and ambience, unforgettable characters, solid and engaging gameplay (the side-quests and mini-games that make the rest of the interactive experience), as well as central element that the games are build around: the deep and thought-provoking plots that are, in this humble reviewer's opinion, some of the best in the genre. Some of you may have already heard that this franchise is overrated and may be too much trouble for it's worth, especially considering it's not 'current gen' anymore - even Infinite is 3 years old at the time of this review, and while it's definitely not perfect, few games have reached closer to the apex of games as an art form than the Bioshock games. It would be a disservice to not play them at least once.
Before starting my review of this game, I recommend playing all previous games too. It really helps understanding the great storyline. I havent completed this huge game myself yet, but I have come a far way into the story. Just walking around the map is awesome because of the great map, the artwork is simply just amazing. Not much to improve there. There are a few flaws with the gameplay, but definitely nothing much to not recommend this good game. So I definitely recommend buying this game with the others of the series to not miss out of any crucial information about the story, I rate this game a good 8.5
If you didn't get the Remastered versions of Bioshock 1 & 2 for free for owning the previous versions on Steam, then this collection is an obvious no brainer purchase. All three games are great. The original has a nice twist to the great story and the gameplay is excellent. The graphics and environments are really good and immersive. The gameplay is a cross between a first person shooter and magic attacks so you can play however you want in that respect. The second game is the worst of the trilogy, but still worth playing. It has a lot of fun moments, but is also bogged down with a lot of boring escort missions and protection missions where you have to protect an NPC for a set amount of time while fighting off onslaughts of enemies in arena style combat. Definitely my least favorite of the games. The third game is by far the best of the trilogy. It's the longest, the most fun, has the best gameplay and story, and is just solid in every way. It didn't get a remastered version like the first two games since it already looks just as good as the remastered console versions, if not better. Definitely buy this collection if you haven't played Bioshock before. You won't regret it.
The Bioshock franchise is one of a kind. One of the best characteristic features in the games is their unique atmosphere. You will never find a game in which you will have the opportunity to wander around in an underwater city or in a city in the clouds. The story is really well created - especially in Bioshock Infinite. The gameplay is interesting, but may get a little repetitive at times. The music is good and adds to the atmosphere of the game. Sound effects of some enemies may get annoying after a while, but I think that's on purpose. Seeing the ending of the last game is worth playing through all three games. I recommend playing these games even if you are not a fan of the genre. Just getting lost in their world is a unique experience, never found in other games.
