Ok so.. let's get to the point.
BioShock 360 demo. Ok, go change your pants, I'll wait.
Now I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you just ruined your good pants for nothing.
The BioShock demo is not all that amazing! /gasp
Let me get my FPS check list out here....
- Standard zombie-oriented enemies with [insert blunt object] for weapons? Check.
- Creepy little girls? Check.
- Ruined civilization that you are just now joining that apparently had been mighty and full of history at one point and it's your job to discover the past? Check.
- Physics oriented super powers? Check.
I'm sorry but everything about the game demo felt completely standard, and I kept checking to see if my socks were being blown off, but they remained loyally on my feet throughout the entire experience.
I will, however, join the legions of gamers whose jaws remain on the floor after catching a glimpse of how the game looks. It does look good. Lemme check my socks... Alright they blew off just thinking about the graphics.
Hopefully when the full game is released, the completely standard elements will be outshone by some marvelous tricks up BioShock's sleeves that were carefully excluded from the demo. Until them, color me unimpressed. read
