Rapture Without Reason

HIGH Guiding Little Sisters to Adam-filled corpses.

LOW Being a Big Daddy doesn't feel very Big or Daddy.

HIGH Sloshing through the darkness at the end of Siren Alley.

LOW The unimaginative construction, storyline, and objectives in Dionysus Park.

Absurdly Delightful

HIGH The surreal, abstract nature of the adventure.

LOW Putting important collectibles in action sequences without checkpoints.

WTF Pretty much everything you see on-screen.

Borderlands Review

Stranded (And Bored) In The Wasteland

 Borderlands Screenshot

HIGH Millions of guns to choose from, theoretically...

LOW The "adventure" is pure contrivance, utterly lacking a soul.

WTF Where's the onscreen mini-map? Why do weak guns auto-equip?

BioShock Third Opinion

"There is no terror in a bang, only in the anticipation of it." -Alfred Hitchcock

BioShock

HIGH Wonderful art style & environment.

LOW Game feels too easy at points.

WTF I didn't realize so many people in the 50s kept audio diaries and left them laying around in random boxes, air vents, and dead bodies.

BioShock Second Opinion

BioShock is a simple, straightforward first-person shooter dressed up in next-generation trappings and superb artistic design. There are numerous distractions attempting to draw the player's eye away from the basic formula at its heart, but really, that's all it is.

BioShock

Game Description: BioShock lets you do the impossible as you explore a mysterious underwater city. When your plane crashes, you discover Rapture—an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. As little girls loot the dead, and biologically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. Now you're trapped, caught in the middle of a genetic war that will challenge both your capacity to survive and your moral allegiance to your own humanity. Make meaningful and mature decisions that culminate in the grand question—do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture to save yourself—or risk all to become their savior?
