Well, does it? It's gotten crazy good reviews, but there seem to be some weird glitches, and people aren't all that impressed with the gameplay and story. Don't vote until you've played the full version.

I haven't seen anyone that was disappointed with the gameplay or story.

A couple of people have said that the gameplay is too linear and not as original as claimed. And there have been some grumbling about the ending. Apparently none of these people have been polled. :D

Still a bit early to tell, but no complaints from me so far. Except maybe the FOV issue, but it doesn't bother me enough to detract from the game. I wasn't really too impressed with the demo on my first run through, but after doing it a couple more times to tweak my system I'm really starting to appreciate it better. I'm only a little bit further in than the demo, but as of yet it's a blast.

This poll is too black and white. Should have put some middle ground answers in there.

It's a great game. It is a bit more linear than I was expecting and by no means would I say that it totally redefines FPSs as developers suggested previously but it does rock. Will surely keep me plenty busy for a bit of the time I have to wait for Crysis.

I only had enough time to play to the point where the demo ended. Seems pretty damn good though.

Hopefully I'll get more time to dedicate to it in the next week or so.

I thought about adding some more, but I think polls get too convoluted sometimes. And with this game, most everyone will buy it and probably like it to some extent, but I thought this would answer if this is truly the marvel that the reviewers are saying.

So: yes, it lives up to the hype-- greatest FPS thus far---No, it's really as good as people say it is---STALKER still pwns it, give me the expansion.

Seems to be a fairly resounding yes so far... which is good since I just plunked down $50 on it. :o

I haven't played the whole game yet, but the demo is so dull and uninsired that I even wonder whether to play it at all.

I dunno about the full game, but I did just try out the demo. I went all the way through in less than 1/2 hour. The graphics on it seem to be prettty slick, and they have some really good background noises to help immerse you into the game. I'm not a scary game fan so I probably won't buy it, but from what I've seen so far it looks like a pretty decent game.

Haven't played the full game , but i think BioShock is overhyped.

would give you my opinion, except for the fact that I have been downloding the demo for 12hrs now and its on 8%

I wouldn't rate the full game based on the demo alone.

I didn't vote because I haven't played the game enough.

WOW! I've been playing the full version PC game off steam for about 3 hours. This game rocks and runs flawless and fast on my computer. Running at 2560X1600 with all graphics maxed out on 1 8800 GTX KO Edition and Intel Quad Core QX6800 4GB of corsair Dominator Series ram clocked at 1066MHz so yes, blazing fast and it's using the unreal graphics engine. I hope Unreal Tournament 3 looks better then Bioshock. Being months away it could very well look better by release date and by that time I'll have the new NVIDIA 9800 GTX!!! :D If you don't have a good high-end system you'll be better off with XBOX 360 version. But PC looks better if you have a setup like mine for sure. The only thing I think that sucked was some of the compressed textures on the walls and certain objects. Other then that, they did a fantastic job! :D

Despite the widescreen issue and lack of AA in DX10 I say yes - the gameplay shine for me in the end.

Wow, the atmosphere is great, and I really haven't been bothered by the no-AA at all... it's not too noticeable. The NPC's hollering at each other and chasing each other around is amusing too. Overall the visuals are great, the controls are easy and intuitive, and it's very quick switching between plasmids and your weapons. Good game. I'll vote when I've gotten through a few more levels...

I voted no cause most of the reviews said stuff like its a really big moral decision to harvest the littles sisters but i find almost no question in harvesting them its just automatic for me, but then again that one chick said

(**POSSIBLE SPOLIER**)

You have a very strong argument there...

I played a little, ran smooth, got bored but before I deleted it, I got the wife to try it she got bored after 4 minutes, said meh and went back to cooking breakfast. Bottom line it was deleted but in a happier note I got some nice pancakes and beacon. :D

Hail to the King, Baby!!!!

Now this is how a game hud should be done. No stupid menus to scroll or click through. Info, data and options; everything right at your mouse command with a touch of one key.

Bring back the non-dumbed down games!!!!

Story is decent though.

There will always be people who dont like games, even if the game is very popular and get glowing reviews.
