    Don't get me wrong..I thought that this game was awesome. The Unreal engine is amazing and it really shows off the 360's system capabilities. It just has some flaws in the plot department. Also, as I mentioned before...at about level 12 in the game..you have basically seen all there is to see in terms of enemies and you've become SO powerful from the plasmids and all of the weaponry that the game isn't really a challenge anymore. You just really keep playing just to unravel the plot further. It just lost it's fun factor in the end to me. I swear though..one of the coolest scares in the game has to be when the splicers resort to playing dead. They were flicking the lights on and off...then I kept walking and like 4-5 splicers that I thought were dead jumped up to attack me. Yea, I jumped for a minute...but...I K.O.'ed all of them with my shotgun. Other than the little scares and the F.E.A.R-like flash backs and ghosts..the game just runs out of gas down the home stretch.

    They tried to make the splicers tougher by giving them machine guns...but..once again..if you've saved a lot of little sisters in the game...these guys should be a routine joke to you. I can remember being on a flight of steps and a spider splicer jumped at me. I stepped off to the side...machine gunned him and I killed him in mid-flight and he went tumbling down the steps(it was hilarious). Then you have other stupid/hilarious stuff like being able to kill a splicer by throwing the dead body of another splicer at him using your telekinesis plasmid. I killed another one by tossing a ladder at his head. Crazy stuff like that.


    All in all....it's a good game that suffers from the inevitable death in gameplay value and challenge toward the end. It's a masterpiece graphically and sound wise. After beating it though, I'd never play it again. Not that it isn't great..but...typically..games with plots don't have high replay value. Metal gear solid is a prime example. I'd give the game 8/10. Best game I've played since Condemned.

    there's nothing wrong with the plot. it's hard to follow because it's not your typical"videogame" game, with a straightforward story, no subliminal plot points, no alluding to things without telling you directly, etc.

    this game has about as many political and human elements as any game. the ultimate irony i think is how the carefree ideallistic world was brought down by the very person, and people, it aimed to create, and in doing so, spoke about our biggest flaws as human beings.

    this isone of the very few times i don't compare this game to how a movie tells a story, because it's better than a movie. the voice acting, the writing, the music, everything is ideal. the scene where you killed ryan and afterward either makes the game for you, or it's not for you.

    I just saw EGM gave it ten ten ten review. I might check it out. Honestly have no clue what it's about other than it being another fps on the 360.

    ^ I was just about to say that.

    Halo 3 will be number 1.

    I haven't played bioshock yet, but as everyone knows I love science so it should be right up my ally.

    Why would Halo 3 be #1?

    It's going to be the same old shit...slightly different looking...it's going to be the Madden of shooters.

    and these rankings are a bit skewed I think. IMO goldeneye, RE4 and Bioshock should be the 1,2,3 considering their average scores are better than those above them and the ones above them have been reviewed far less. (well, except GE)

    It's not fair to rank older FPS games with newer ones...There is no way in hell that Goldeneye can stand up to Bioshock. Bioshock has it's flaws..but it was a lot better than Goldeneye..and I really liked goldeneye too.

    that all depends on critics and the game industry......if it gets good reviews then it will go where it deserves to go

    Add one of the best FPS to a next generation system.
    This is one Bet you will lose.

    Once mass effect comes out it might slip to number 2 though.

    This isn't based on fanboys though, it's based on actual reviews from independent gaming sites.

    The highest Halo has on the list right now is 9....so who's to say they'll get past 5? Halo 1 was far more innovative and a bigger hit than Halo 3 could be...because Halo was new then, and now it's not. Where as back then it went beyond expectations...this time it probably wont even reach expectations.

    Last time I checked, reveiwers were still capable of being fan boys.

    Pick up any magazine right now and Halo 3 is all over it.

    Hype will see this game get atleast a 93% average.

    no......the hype actually works against halo 3 this time....because the expectations are higher then ever.....halo 3 is all over everything because thats what consumers want and this is the conclusion to the triology...if it sucks...it sucks....and everyone will point thier fingers at bungie and microsoft and do a straight up nelson "HA HA"

    point proven when you bring ps3's Lair.....hyped to hell....horrible reviews....
    heavenly sword.....hyped to hell....ok to good reviews....
    two worlds for 360....destroyed...horrible reviews

    hype creates expectation....if it doesnt meet expectation then its gonna get destroyed...halo is banking on 3 being great because most people liked part 1 and part 2......so if 3 doesnt measure up to expectations of the game your gonna see a shitload of pissed off critics...and it wont do shit on the review level....this is like the 3rd part of the matrix status

    Bioshock is awesome but doesnt even crack my top 25 of all time list.
    lol@this
    But I guess if we are going strictly on reviewer ratings and games in these recent eras then I guess its top 10

    bungie has done plenty to keep the game fresh.. and it will live to expectations.. im not sure about #1 of all time or none of the rankings.. but it will meet expectations..

    forge, saved films, all the new equipment vehicles, and its superb gameplay will make sure it lives up to expectations..

    singleplayer will be much better too.. in H2 they scrapped 80% of it in the middle of production...
