    BioShock 2
    Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. Players step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture, the Big Daddy, as they travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers and their own survival.

    While the games in their entirety truly stand the test of time, still show that they got “it” and (at least on consoles) have never looked this good, the bonus content could be more plentiful.

    High definition textures do a solid job of re-introducing one of gaming’s enduring masterpieces to a younger generation of gamers. Whilst not providing adequate incentive to re-purchase for gamers who already own these time capsule titles, Bioshock: The Collection makes an ideal gift for introducing someone to the magical and never ending journey of PC Gaming.

    BioShock: The Collection is the perfect edition for who haven't played any BioShock in the past.

    Bioshock: The Collection is essential if you never played these games. For those who have, there's little new to find here.

    A more than good porting.

    The collection of all Bioshock games isn't a bad remaster, but neither is it an outstanding one. For the console crowd it’s a worthy addition to their collection, but for PC players it doesn't offer a big enough improvement.

    A huge disappointment. I can recommend The Collection only to those who never played the original games, because the quality of the remasters does not justify paying for them again (even old bugs were left intact!). [12/2016, p.57]

Significant effort was put into the first 2 games while Bioshock Infinite is just a port of the PC version set to "very high" graphics option (I compared it in the past and it was running on the low graphics on last gen systems). Frame rate is 60 FPS in all with some dips. The extras are mind blowing with all DLC thrown in and new features like the developer commentary and concept arts. The packaging is also slick. Considering how much effort 2K put into this collection, it's worth the price than most "remasters" being put out at slightly lesser price. Expand

    It is not a perfect remake, but those saying it's total garbage are probably what they're trying to describe... I mean, on my side, theIt is not a perfect remake, but those saying it's total garbage are probably what they're trying to describe... I mean, on my side, the original game was working well, I had no audio issues, no visual glitches, no weird mouse input problem, nothing (I can't corroborate those problems). I've played the first one from start to finish without any real problems or bugs. So i don't get those people... also, weirdly, those people (if you look at their profiles) only give negative reviews, so... we have to appreciate the amount of useless trolls on metacritics.... it's sad, but they are legion, little human beings with no talents but lot of little opinions to express...

    Anyway, on my side, the remake still works perfectly, no bugs, no crashes, nothing... The only negative thing I could say is that the remake is not "remake" enough. What I mean by that is that this game is 11 years old and they made a remake that look like a 6-7 years old game when we were looking for a game at the standard of re-release (2-3 years old). But that's about it for the negative side.

    The game is still excellent and those who never played it should, Bioshock I Remastered is actually 5$ on Steam... Most garbage always-in-earlyaccess tiltes cost more than that and are not that developped, that rich and entertaining. This is a good game, I give it a 8/10.

    Actualmente este juego está gratis en la Epic Games Store y puedo dar mi opinión acerca de 2 de los juegos que vienen incluidos. Bioshock 1 yActualmente este juego está gratis en la Epic Games Store y puedo dar mi opinión acerca de 2 de los juegos que vienen incluidos. Bioshock 1 y 2. Este podría ser una de las mejores recopilaciones de videojuegos como la de Mass Effect The Trilogy por dar un ejemplo. Sin embargo tengo que decirles que no vale la pena pagar precio completo o incluso con un buen descuento. La razón es simple y es que el juego crashea constantemente y peor aún no existe un autoguardado frecuente lo que puede llevar a perder varias horas de progreso en los 2 juegos que he probado. Es lamentable ya que yo jugué en su tiempo a los 3 juegos y son simplemente geniales incluso yo consideraría que el primero fue una obra maestra. Pero no puedo recomendar a nadie un juego que es prácticamente injugable en ciertas ocasiones ya que la función de autoguardado no guarda el progreso constantemente para aliviar este problema. En fin como dije está gratis en la Epic Games Store ahora mismo así que aprovechen y prueben los juegos a ver si tienen los mismo problemas que yo tuve pero por mi parte lo probé con una gráfica de laptop de nvidia y con gráficos integrados vega, en ambos caso el problema de crashing no mejora.
