I'm in the same boat.

It just isn't grabbing me. I've had the game since release day but I just haven't been THAT interested in finishing it. I'm at Apollo square right now and it feels like I'm still doing the exact same things I was doing in the first level.

Its not a bad game by any means... but that review hit the nail on the head. Its a lot more shallow than everyone made it out to be. The developers always said it was just a first person shooter though, so it wasn't their fault. I guess there just isn't enough story or NPC interaction here for me. Basically, you just shoot stuff (either with a gun or with a plasmid), buy supplies to continue shooting, and every few levels you have to deal with frustrating bosses before getting a minute or so of radio dialog to push the story along. Thats about it.

I'm getting tired of "plain old shooters" and Bioshock just isn't setting itself apart, despite the plasmids and the slight bit of freedom in the levels. I'll finish it, but I'm hardly glued to my PC, eagerly anticipating the next time I can play the game. At this point I'm almost forcing myself to finish it.

Indeed. Especially since people keep changing who they're impersonating.
