But user reviews say the game sucks. And there are too many good games, many of them free, to waste even a $1 on a bad game with shiny graphics. So I'll pass.
Have you tried the lite version?

For a dollar, it's worth it, but there is some uneven gameplay issues. I do not like mini-games shoved needlessly into my action-oriented games. It seems like Bioshock really kicked this trend into high gear. I hated Bioshock for that stupid turrent hacking mini-game. This one has a bomb-disarming mini-game. Sure, I can figure out all the puzzles, but it's annoying nevertheless.

Also, there are some protection missions here, which are a pain. They are significantly harder than any other sequences in the game, which is why I pointed to uneven gameplay.

The protection mission involving, it was either a plane or a chopper, in mission 6 or 7 maybe, I could not beat. Don't get me wrong. It's not like I tried and failed a hundred times. A game like this isn't worth that much effort. Maybe I failed ten times or somewhere around there. At that point, I just lost interest.

Don't be hating on Bioshock, or feel the wrath of my backhander.

I loved that hacking minigame. It was the bees knees! The safes were annoying, but thats mainly because I failed at them xD My only regret was researching all the machines so I couldn't do the hacks!

Wow this is alot better than I expected from some reviews I read. Sure, I don't think I would've payed 6.99 for it but it's well worth the buck. Those puzzles do get a bit annoying sometimes, but they're not too bad. Glad I picked this up!

Opinions are opinions, but I will never refer stop referring to Bioshock as "Bio-stink", and I will never play another game in that series again. That franchise is over-rated almost beyond words. And I love fps. Sandbox, racing and first person shooters are by far my favorite three video game genres. I would say that Bioshock was god-awful, but that would be an insult to god-awful.

Just bought this game and as soon as i defused the bombs in the beginning of the game, it froze up on me. I tried to turn it off and on again, but the game is stuck. Anybody else encountered this??
