    The story telling, unique environments, gameplay and amount of content included makes Bioshock The Collection a must buy.

    If there is a must when it comes to remasters, it's BioShock: The Collection. Blind Squirrel made a superb work adapting for 1080p and 60fp an already superior franchise. If you haven't played any BioShock yet, this is the best moment and, if you are into Ken Levine's work, BioShock: The Collection has to be on your shelf.

    The Bioshock Collection is the perfect way to revisit this amazing franchise in glorious FULL HD graphics.

    There’s no denying that the Bioshock series is an ambitious one, and that it features some much loved/derided games. Bioshock Collection is the current definitive way to experience those games on consoles, but there’s little new for long-term fans beyond a bit of spit n’ polish.

    There’s always a man. There’s always a city. There’s always a lighthouse. And there’s always a reason to revisit one of the finest trilogies in the modern gaming.

    BioShock The Collection combines the three 2K Games for a reasonable price. On top of that, the games are polished and upgraded to the standards of today. And that makes the games feel like new.

    Even though The Bioshock Collection is filled with content, it is far from perfect. Technically speaking there are a lot of bumps on the road and the gameplay simply is not Bioshocks strong suit. However, the design is amazing.

    All games in the package look noticeably better than the last gen console versions.

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). Simply put, the YouTube comparisons don't do this collection justice, because the texture quality has been bumped up by a lot in all three games. Moreover, each game runs in 1080p and presents a crisp and vibrant image compared to the washed out and blurry image of the last gen versions. Frame rate is also 60 FPS in all with some dips here and there. There is also no day one patch for any of the titles, so you can play these games out of the box without a problem. 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 one the best series out there and I would totally recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it before or if you have played them before and want another playthrough. I have run into a couple glitches but nothing game-breaking. Infinite, the newest game in the series, doesn't look vastly different. But it's understandable considering it is newer than the other two. The games are on two separate disks (Bioshock 1 & 2 being on one disc and Infinite being on the other), the three games combined take up around 60GB and they come with all the DLC as well. I give it a 9/10, but it would be a ten if it didn't have the glitches. Expand

Yes. No one knows exactly what this game is but we all agree that it's amazing regardless, I only hope they continue the Bioshock series in the near future. Expand
