    @CharlieBarratt Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing you. If all opinions were the same, we would never do anything different. I guess the reason for my comment was how your review seemed so different from the others I've seen. There was nothing wrong with it in any way. Also, I know you didn't write those other 10's, but when only one person is assigned, it represents the whole site. The site has been giving out a lot of 10's lately too. That's all. Nothing personal. I guess I'm just too much of a skeptic sometimes.

    Again, why do people like Bioshock, its so boring, yes I've completed the twice, got all video logs! The combat is bland, like Mass Effect, the story is good but a bit obvious, and the setting looks kinda the same.

    Hmm, I dunno if it deserves a 10. I guess I'll find out when I play it...whenever that is (Damn you Mass Effect 2!).

    I'm so glad that you guys like the game after all the hate you've been vomiting on it. I love irony.
  • FrozenImplosion - February 9, 2010 12:35 a.m.

    I'm really hoping this will be goty material. CAN'T WAIT!

    @Jessup Hmm, that's a good question. Probably took me 15-20 hours, but I went through very slowly, searching every corner and scrounging for every audio diary, money, ammo, health I could find. Average person could get through in about 10-15 hours, probably.

    That is amazing the Bioshock 2 is a great game even though it was developed by 5 developers concurrently and managed to be great.
  • TheIronMaiden - February 8, 2010 10:50 p.m.

    definitely pickin this one up before I pick up dante. Can't wait for tonight.

    Great review Charlie, I'm picking this up for sure. I love the first one and was on the fence for part 2 but this review has alleviated my fears. Just curious, how long did it take you to finish it on your first play through? I didn't see a mention of the length in the review.

    *Gives massive 5's and ohh snaps to Charlie Barrat* Now that's what I call a shut down for a ridiculous argument!

    I must say, Bioshock was probably one of the most enjoyable games I have ever played and probably ranks as my number one game of all time. Needless to say, I am pumped to return to Rapture! This is the best review I've read so far, and I have only one beef with what the developers have done with the game: the drill needs gas. Originally it was just going to be an overheat meter, but I suppose it does prevent you from spamming it.
  • GamesRadarCharlieBarratt - February 8, 2010 9:59 p.m.

    @waynski1457 So your reasons for questioning my score are 1) that we've given a couple other 10s recently, and 2) that other sites didn't like it as much as I did. Okay... 1) I didn't write those other reviews. 2) I don't work for those other sites. Satisfied?
  • venomman01 - February 8, 2010 9:43 p.m.

    Buying this tomorrow!!!! The multiplayer looked pretty kickass! Modern Warfare 2's endless glitches and shitty community frustrate me. I would totally live in rapture!!!!
  • DeathandBlackMetal4 - February 8, 2010 9:34 p.m.

    this game and the first one are my favorite games. Kick ass!!
  • Mirako - February 8, 2010 9:20 p.m.

    Yeah GR when you throw multiple 10/10 games at me it's a little hard to decide which one to get, which is what reviews are for right?
  • Dexsus - February 8, 2010 9:06 p.m.

    One Word, Awesome. Can't wait to return to Rapture again, I'll miss the wrench though. I just completed ME2 last weekend so this fits in very nicely.
