    This review is from: BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition (Video Game)

    If you are like me and mad late catching up with series, download the Bioshock demo off of PSN first to see if this your cup of tea. I usually avoid first person shooters like the plague. I have no interest in Call Of Duty, Battlefield or any other war crap. Yet, I was very impressed by what I played in the Bioshock demo. I was very close to purchasing Bioshock until I saw this great package was about to be released.

    Take heed to the ‘Mature’ rating before purchasing this for little Billy or Suzie. These games may be extremely graphic, violent, bloody, and bizarre for those who do not have an open mind or the patience to understand what is going on. The rest of you will love it! A mix of survival horror, rpg elements and a fast paced shooter all blended together to make a classic series.

    A perfect deal for only $30 plus tax. 1 disc, and 3 Bioshock Infinite promo stickers are included. Best to have disc auto start turned off before inserting these combo pack discs to avoid a game from automatically loading up like Assassin’s Creed Revelations does with the Ezio Trilogy disc. You can disable disc auto start by navigating to Settings > [System Settings] in the XMB menu.

    With disc auto start turned off, when you first insert the disc, 2 icons will appear. 1 icon to install Bioshock 1. A 2nd icon to install Bioshock 2 plus all DLC’s for both Bioshock 1 and 2 which you can install separately from the disc anytime you choose. In other words, if you only want to install Bioshock 2 and then decide to install Minerva’s Den, you can do so at anytime you choose.

    Install times are nowhere near as long as the Ezio Trilogy pack. In fact, when you install Bioshock, you are treated to a musical loading screen playing 1950’s music with interesting in game ads while the games install.

    Graphics still look great and stand the test of time. The voice acting is very convincing and sets the tone for an eerie, creepy world to explore filled with various sinister, psychotic characters all with their own evil, twisted agenda. A lot of time and thought went into creating the story and the very believable city of Rapture. If you are not a first person shooter fan, give this a shot.

    Here are a list of DLC’s included:

    Bioshock: DLC’s – Plasmids Pack, Challenge Rooms Pack, Bonus Museum Level

    Bioshock 2: DLC’s – Minerva’s Den, Sinclair Solutions Tester, Rapture Metro, Kill Em Kindly, The Protector Trials

    SUBTITLES FOR BIOSHOCK 1:

    Minor spoiler for Bioshock 1. To access the subtitles, start a game of Bioshock. After the opening plane crash scene, you will assume control of Jack who surfaces from underwater. Pause the game, select ‘options’ and you will see an option to turn on subtitles.

    HOW TO FIX ‘CONTINUE’ / LOAD GAME ERRORS:

    There was a common issue with Bioshock 1 and 2 where loading up a saved game by selecting ‘Contnue’ or ‘Load Game’ would result in a freeze error where your saves never load up. Unfortunately this issue still carries over to the Ultimate Rapture Edition. This happened to me recently and luckily there is an easy fix for this.

    On your PS3 in the XMB menu, simply navigate to your ‘Game Data’ folder under the Games menu and delete all Bioshock files.

    DO NOT DELETE ANY SAVED GAME DATA WHICH IS LOCATED IN A DIFFERENT FOLDER, SAVED GAME DATA FOLDER.

    Once you delete all Bioshock game data files, simply reinstall Bioshock and your saves should load just fine.

    Detailed DLC Review, January 25, 2013

    What a steal. The first two BioShock games are two of the best games this console generation has seen and now we have the opportunity to get both of them, complete with all their downloadable content, here in one package.

    There really isn’t anything new I can say about these two games that hasn’t already been said when the games were originally released. Both are amazing story-driven FPSs that showcase some of the best imagination and creativity in video games. The graphics were great for their time and still hold up well today but will show their age when compared to some of the more recent game releases. Since so many reviews have already been released about the original games I am going to instead focus on the extra content that is included. If you are on the fence about the games themselves, I would encourage you to view the reviews on the original product pages to get a better understanding of the games.

    !WARNING! – These games have great stories and it would be a shame to have them spoiled for those of you new to the series. A few inconsiderate reviewers will contain details that will spoil the story for you, so proceed with caution!

    Bioshock

    Bioshock 2

    Now on to the added content!

    The DLC is included on the disc which means no codes to enter and nothing to download. The case says 22 GB are required to install all the content but its not one huge install; you can pick and choose which pieces of DLC to install and each has to be installed separately.

    The first BioShock comes with the Plasmids Pack, the Challenge Rooms Pack, and the Bonus Museum Level. All content is single-player; there was no multiplayer in the first game. While all the DLC from the second game is installed separately, the DLC for the first is installed in one package. This isn’t that big of a deal since most of the DLC included is for the second game anyhow.

    The Plasmids Pack isn’t really worth mentioning; this was a free update that anyone with an internet hookup had access to. This patch/DLC brought in a handful of new Plasmid powers and added new trophies/achievements. While this update was free of charge, its convenient to have it on disk and not have to download it.

    The Challenge Rooms pack were three independent levels that were separate from the game’s story and originally only available on the PS3 and now 360 owners get to enjoy them for the first time. The name says it all; they are rooms with a challenge. Sometimes puzzle-driven, sometimes combat. They aren’t really a necessity to fully enjoy BioShock; they’re a nice bonus but easily done without. The Challenge Rooms originally released for $9.99 and come with their own set of trophies. Unclear at this time if the trophies were translated to achievements for this edition but I would assume so.

    The Bonus Museum Level is a great addition for the big BioShock fans out there. Unfortunately, there’s not much to it. It consists of one medium-sized room with several “exhibits” and concept art lining the walls. Here we get to see the different ideas that were played around with and ultimately scrapped before the game was finalized. Walking up to each piece provides a small description in paragraph form. Its nice to see actual detailed 3D models of these ideas, but without any movement or sound they’re simply lifeless statues that you will quickly get bored with. Even the biggest BioShock fans will spend a limited amount of time in here; I consider myself one of these fans and I was out after 20 minutes. Very interesting and a nice bonus, but I doubt I’ll go back anytime soon.

    The added content for BioShock 2 are the Sinclair Solutions Tester pack, Rapture Metro map pack, Kill’em Kindly mode, The Protector Trials, Minerva’s Den, and a Character Pack (apparently not mentioned on the case). Assuming that you’re interested in the multiplayer aspect of the game at least somewhat, there’s a lot of value here. Being that the game is nearing its 4-year anniversary, its understandable that the multiplayer has fallen off quite a bit from where it was. Many of the modes are simply impossible to find games for without setting them up yourself with invites to friends and the “players met” list. Most of the action takes place in the Civil War mode, which is simply Team Deathmatch. Getting into a Civil War match is fairly easy, but there are times when it will take a few minutes to find one. Also, without dedicated servers you’re left at the mercy of the host. That means if they have a horrible connection you might see some lag and if they leave the game…

    22GB install is no joke., January 19, 2013

    This review is from: BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition (Video Game)

    First off, these games are amazing, and with all the DLC included (on disc, no codes included), this bundle is a steal.

    Now, both games and the DLC are all on one disc ( a dual layered Blu-ray disc to be precise). Once you insert the disc, two icons will appear, one for “Bioshock” and one for “Bioshock and Bioshock 2 Additional Content”. When you start Bioshock 1, the only thing you have to install is game data, which is about 5GB. When you choose the “Bioshock and Bioshock 2 Additional Content” icon, Bioshock 2 and all the DLC for both games will be listed. Unlike Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2 (the entire game) has to be completely installed, which amounts to 9.4 GB of space. The DLC has to be installed as well, which is about 5.6GB all together.

    Adding all three totals together, it’s really 20GB instead of 22GB, but it’s still a lot.

    Despite all that, this is a great bundle, and at $30, it’s one that should not be missed
