Some quotes from the Eurogamer article.
the most convincing and elaborate and artistic game world ever conceived
the most staggeringly beautiful environments you’ve ever lain eyes on in a videogame
it’s got to the stage where you don’t even care about the tech so much as the creativity eked out of it all
I love this one:
But here’s BioShock in August 2007, looking for all the world like a game that’s landed fully formed from a couple of years in the future. It’s a game that’s going to make a lot of rival developers either very excited or very depressed indeed over the coming months as they come to terms with how far ahead this game is – not just in technical terms, but in practically every other angle as well.
And the conclusions:
this is the kind of game that people want
Seriously – if you don’t find something to love about BioShock, we’d recommend a trip to the nearest doctor to check if your heart’s still beating.
Luckily offset by the more sober comment by DjFlex52:
All I have to say is that if you don’t enjoy Bioshock ALOT then you’re not a true gamer.
Never mistake “people” with “gamers”, Eurogamer.
Thank you for clearing that up, DjFlex52.
possibly the most thrilling combat in any FPS you’ve ever experienced
