Did anyone pick this up yet?

This game is beautiful. This is highbrow video gaming at last. This game is heavily influenced by AYN RAND! Tom Clancy, eat your heart out.

Seriously, I was hooked 2 minutes into the game.

Highest recommendation possible.

I picked this up yesterday and played it last night. I agree that it is a fantastic game. Come to think of it, this is the first game that's made me take Guitar Hero out of the drive, so that should say something.

I really love the atmosphere of the game, it is truly scary. At one point (trying hard not to spoil anything), I was searching a desk for useful items and stopped to listen to a diary entry. Then, when I turned around, a splicer was standing right behind me, filling up the screen. I'm not ashamed to admit I screamed like a little girl. And then I bashed his head in with a wrench.

OK. I'm about five minutes into the demo from Xbox live. This game is beautifully nuts.

I think that I might have finally found a first person shooter that I enjoy. I hate first person shooters. But this...it's not choppy, the graphics appear to be insane.

This game appears to really be tailored to the HD experience + intense game play!

Is the demo actually capturing the actual game play? The realism it just seems incredible so far.

Actually, the demo is basically the first level, though the designer or president of the company said they changed it up a bit to give you a better feel of the game. So, yeah. If you like the demo, you'll like the game.

Played the demo. It's amazing.
I am actually not getting it because it's so damn freaky cool looking.
Have some other games I want to finish before I get addicted to this one.

GoW had the same affect on me. No other game before or after that managed to do that.

If you haven't checked out Gears of War, it's extrememly impressive stuff too. But yeah I saw someone playing Bioshock and I'm getting it quickly. Looked amazing.

See I hate this. I really, really want to play the cool new stuff, but I can't play first person shooters. They make me sick. Like Prey, for example. I pre-ordered it and everything and it gave me nasty motion sickness in about 10 minutes. I sold it back to Gamestop. Is there anything I can do to cure myself of this?

I tend to get sick from the first person games, too. I just play until I start to feel bad, then stop and do something else. Then I'll come back to it later. Usually after a couple of days of doing this, I'll be fine and can play for a pretty long time.

The strangest part is that no Star Wars FPS bothers me, but any other first person game, including Oblivion, really gets to me.

I've heard a lot of people who hate FPS games say that they don't have them same problems with Bioshock. One person even compared it to Myst.

You should download the demo and give it a shot.

I'm currently in the 3'rd section of the game, and it is indeed fantastic. Some FPS's will make me feel queasy after a while, but this game hasn't done that to me. So I agree with others who say that you should at least rent Bioshock if you have any desire to play it at all.

I just wonder how long the game is because the first two sections took forever to finish. That's not a bad thing...that's a good thing. Off to yoga :-)

Actually it's 7 for most forums - but it's 31 days on this one. Even a week seems too long when some idiot tacks an idiot comment on a thread 6.5 days later.
