    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.

    All in all, is the Bioshock Collection worth picking up on Nintendo Switch? I would absolutely recommend it. As I mentioned, whether you have played them before or not, the hybrid console is a fantastic way to experience each of these titles, and the excellent result of the port alone should be enough to entice players new and old. The games have amazing stories, truly unique settings, and memorable characters and locations that everyone should jump into.

    BioShock: The Collection stands as yet another fantastic port in the Switch’s ever-growing library, combining three excellent games and all their DLC into one convincing package. Stable performance, engrossing narratives, fun gameplay, and lots of content make this one an easy recommendation, even if these releases show their age from time to time. If you’re looking for a good single-player shooter to pick up for your Switch, look no further than BioShock: The Collection. We’d give this one a high recommendation, it’s tough to go wrong here.

    If you are like me and have never played a BioShock game before, I highly recommend picking up this collection. If you played one of these games or even all of them on another console, it is still an excellent collection on the Switch. Since you get all three games and their DLC, I think it is well worth the asking price of $49.99.

    This collection is a fantastic adaptation of one of the best franchises ever made. They are that type of game that can be played years later and they’re still as enjoyable as when they first came out, so wether it’s your first or your tenth time with them, this is your chance to play them on the go.

    For many BioShock: The Collection’s hop to Nintendo Switch is as good of an excuse as any to indulge in this unforgettable series all over again. For others it’s an opportunity to discover what they’ve been missing out on and if so “would you kindly” pick up a copy because yes, you’ve been missing out. For those owning a Switch alone, there’s a banquet of content on offer in this collection that both looks and plays a treat, making it worth every penny. This first-person shooter is easily one of the best available in the Switch’s catalogue of games and let’s face it, being able to take BioShock wherever you go is indeed awesome. However, bearing in mind how this version plays best, it’s difficult not to consider browsing stores on other consoles where this title often finds itself on sale for a pretty much identical experience at fraction of the price.

    All three BioShock games in the collection contain all the DLC from their original releases and as far as packages go, are as complete as they come. Purely from a content perspective there’s plenty to go around, and most of the time spent is engaging, too. I personally find all three games to be far more interesting as historical artefacts rather than for pure consumption, but it’s nice that they function well as both. And so if you’re just arriving at the series on Switch my recommendation is – if you can stomach the often very graphic violence – definitely play BioShock 1, if you loved the first then consider BioShock 2, and only if you like flying cities and have a yet unsatiated bloodlust, then play BioShock Infinite as well.

    Bioshock The Collection on Switch is everything the home console versions brought us four years ago, but with a oh-so practical portable dimension, but also poorer graphics, thanks to a strong aliasing, and a frame-rate which cannot exceed 30 fps. But with three classical FPS games which already made history, the added DLC and many bonus gives us a good reason to dive again, on the go.

    Super Solid port. Probably the best port on the console or at the very least on par with the doom port.

    This is the reason I bought a switch, good ports of great third party games. Amazing work by 2k, seriously impressive to get this working wellThis is the reason I bought a switch, good ports of great third party games. Amazing work by 2k, seriously impressive to get this working well on such weak hardware. It looks infinitely better than Doom and it’s Vaseline filter resolution. The people whining about the price gladly drop 60 bucks for shallow children’s games that Nintendo rushes out every year. 50 bucks for 3 of the best shooters ever made is a steal, period. Expand

    This port is way too expensive for the price. $50 for 3 games that are a decade old is a bit ridiculous, should be like $15 max.
