    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

SIN DUDA SERÍA EL BIOSHOCK INFINITE!!! Expand

But is this pack worthy?Today, years after release, you can get all 3 bioshocks in single pack. First 2 games are remastered and improved. But is this pack worthy? Should you spend your money?

    Bioschock: Remastered

    PROS
    - You will step in to the rapture (city at bottom of sea) for first time.
    - Graphics are logically worst of all tree games, but it is still okay even for todays standarts.
    - Gameplay is what matters here and in bioshock 1 its very good. Interesting locations, enemies, bosses, crafting, hacking, etc... You explore locations, finding hiddent areas, fighting your way trought hostile city. There are various weapons and plasmind (magical powers) that will help you in various situations and fights of course.
    - Story is and lore very good too. You will expereince a lot of funny, interesting moments.
    - First game is the longest of all three in my opinion. its a little bit slower but do not fear, t´here is enough action for everybody.

    CONS
    - Crashing. Yes that is the only thing that i didnt liked. After years, it is still there and not fixed. So if you will paly this, please do have 2 SAVES and rotate them everytime you save. I had to repeat almost all location because of this.

    Bioschock 2: Remastered

    PROS
    - In second game, you will look to the undersea city rapture again, but this time you will play as Big Daddy (If you played first game you know what it is :-D)
    - Graphics are significantly better. Especially water effects are very good (Better than in third bioshock)
    - The game is really very similiar to the first bioshock. But everything is enhanced. Fights are better, crafting is better, hacking is better. Almost all things are improved a bit. The game plays better.
    - But there are still some thing that are worse. The game feels shorter. Locations are more straightforward and not so interesting in my opinion and so on.
    - Story is and lore are very good.

    CONS
    - Still crashing :-D but now only when you let the game in menu for some time. But rotate saves here too for sure like in first game.

    Bioshock: Infinite

    PROS
    - Third bioshock is different and not in bad way, but in good way. It is from different universe :-D. Welcome to the columbia, the flying city!
    - Good thing is the gameplay itself is very similiar to first 2 games, but with more intense action. There are no pasive plasminds but now you will find gear through the game (its better in my opinion). Active plasminds (magic skills) are still here and they are still usefull and funny to use. There many weapons to use and you can choose which fits better to your playstyle.
    - In bioshock: infinity you will have a companion, sweet young girls elisabeth, that will acompany you during the game and will be with you till the end. Together with her you will uncover story of third bioshock which is in my opinion fantastic and leaves 2 previous games behind. Elisabeth is not just a pet that will follow you. She talk, she move, she cover herself, she find money, ammo, salt (mana) and medkits for you, and thats not all because about you and her the whole story is. She is just unique and fantastic addition to the game. Without her game would be nothing.
    - Graphics are logically best from all three bioshocks but in bioshock 2, water had better effects.
    - Music and sounds are atmosferic and top notch. The world itself is beatufily crafted.

    CONS
    - Well its not crashing, at least for me. But its sad it stuters on my new high end PC when changing locations (loading new things) its annoying but i got used to it.

    FINAL RESULT

    All three bioshocks in single pack and in discount are fantastic offer. Gameplay, Story, Atmosphere, Good portion of action, Many ways how to play, that are things where all bioshocks excell. I like that all bioshocks differs from each other in some ways. in every one of the three i like something else that others do not have.

    If there werent crashing and stuttering issues it would be even better.

    Porque me lo han dado gratis, sino hubiese pedido el reembolso.

    Fallos gráficos, bandas negras en las cinemáticas, los frames caen cada dos
    Porque me lo han dado gratis, sino hubiese pedido el reembolso.

    Fallos gráficos, bandas negras en las cinemáticas, los frames caen cada dos por tres, Los botones no funcionan o no reaccionan bien, salta el modo de pad sin motivo aparente y eso que lo tengo desenchufado, no deja configurar las resoluciones ni nada. Menudo port mas chusco.

    2K, ya estais tardando en sacar un parche.
