i beat bioshock yesterday and instantly started a new game on hard. Easy is pretty easy but hard is freaking hard. Lives up to the names, I guess! Excellent, excellent game. I can't say enough great things about it. Though I have one gripe. While the boss battles are intense and difficult, I kind of wish they had a grander scale. Like I kept expecting to fight a giant squid or something, all resident evil style. It's just a teensy gripe, though, and in no way should influence your purchase of the game. Everything is smooth, tight, and well constructed. The research system, the invention system, weapon upgrades, everything is amazing. A major leap forward in gaming. Though, I get the impression that somehow I may actually enjoy Metroid 3 more? Hm. I kept playing through the levels in bioshock wishing I could scan things. For a shooter it's an impressive mix of adventure and run and gun and strategy, but somehow I wish there were more puzzles and less.... shooting?
I am just picking things to gripe about now. It's a brilliant game. Get it, love it, etc.
