    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.

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

The details of faces, walls, objects etc are vastly improved imo. A new addition of looking for Film Reels to unlock Director commentary is a nice addition as well. A+ and a no-brainer purchase for fans. Expand

All of them were excellent games and all had replay value but 2 just held it for me. Dark setting game with over the top gameplay and audio hooked me for hours wanting to do everything. Sad it was fairly short in my opinion but the alternate endings were worthwhile. Expand

The mechanics system felt a little outdated to me because I started to play games more seriously the past 2 years.The second game was okay, we don’t really have to talk about it, it was mediocre at best. It had a well story but the villain didn’t seem interesting to me at all but then I got to play Bioshock:Infinite. Infinite had one of the best gameplays I’ve ever experienced in my life. It was just so darn fun, Infinite has a totally new setting, the first two games were dark and gritty but the world of Columbia in Bioshock: Infinite was so colorful and wild, it just takes you in it. I’m not saying Infinite is dark, I’m just saying it has a more different setting than the others, but to be fair, I thought that the first game was better story wise. I think that Bioshock:Collection isn’t a good game collection at least for today’s standards, I wouldn’t recommend it to a modern gamer but I really enjoyed the stories and the games, and if you’re curious you’re welcome to check it out.
