BioShock: The Collection (Xbox One)
For every true fan of BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite comes the ultimate edition of the breathtaking trilogy, BioShock: The Collection for Xbox One.
In 2007, 2K Games first introduced us with Jack, whose plane crashed in the middle of the ocean where he discovered the entrance to the underwater city called Rapture. BioShock (2007) told a fascinating story about a powerful man, Andrew Ryan, and his dream of creating an isolated utopia that fell apart due to greed and thirst for power.
This first-person shooter with RPG and stealth elements quickly became famous among video game fans with its memorable characters like Little Sisters and Big Daddies. Moreover, many of the player’s decisions throughout the game had a direct impact on how the story would end. This created a more personal feeling towards the game that made fans play it over and over again.
BioShock 2 (2010) takes places eight years after the events from the first game. This time the players are in the role of Delta and need to fight through Splicers with different weapons. The second part also offered a multiplayer mode for a story-driven prequel to the plot.
In 2015 BioShock Infinite was released, and the fans had the pleasure of enjoying the well-known mechanics, gameplay, and themes, but in a different setting. The protagonist, Booker DeWitt is fighting through the mysterious city of Colombia with the help of AI-controlled Elizabeth. The two uncover some of the deepest and darkest secrets of the airborne city.
BioShock: The Collection for Xbox One includes all three games, remastered in 1080p with all single-player add-on content, the “Columbia’s Finest” pack, as well as the Director’s Commentary.
10 Years Later, BioShock Infinite Remains One of the Boldest AAA Shooters Ever Made
On its 10th anniversary, BioShock Infinite remains one of the boldest shooters of all time despite its self-destructive mistakes.
A decade later, the Lutece Twins are still the best thing in BioShock Infinite
A long time ago (in 2013, in fact) in a student-y house far away (assuming that you don't live too near to Nottingham), I started playing the BioShock series. I'd flirted with the idea for years, but it was the release of BioShock Infinite that finally convinced me to take the plunge. And I can't exactly complain: the series' Rapture arc — made up of the first and second games, plus the prequel novel by none other than John "The Crow" Shirley — now makes up maybe 10% of my personality, having given me two of my favourite video games, my favourite video game tie-in book, and a front-running contender for my favourite video game locale all at once. I just wish that, after all that prep I did for it, I'd actually liked BioShock Infinite a bit more. Read more
