    I glad i got the 360 version, just plug and play! and I think the best single player campaign since the original Halo!

    Thats all well and good.

    I wonder when they are gonna get their fingers out and fix the PROBLEMS that many many people are facing with the actual gameplay of Bioshock.

    My problem is that the game crashes at the start of level 2 regardless of the many fixes i have been provided by the tech staff.

    There are hundreds of cases like this and many more.

    That is nearly 2 months now and for 30 quid...I have got 1 level. Really pathetic!

    I managed to break the copy of Vista I had BioShock installed on, so I had to reinstall it, losing an BioShock activation in the process. Now I should be able to revoke that one, and be returned to 0. Yay.

    Too late, I played the whole game almost a month ago. Although I wished it would lasted more then the 6 evenings i played it. Unlike Jinjue i played without any error or other strange game bugs on a 8800gtx running on a 64bit vista.

    Have you tried to reninstall it, or run it on a different system. Or do you have a very old system?

    Obiwan : i have tried EVERYTHING.........trust me.........my last bit of awesome advice was to wait for a patch.

    And my machine while far from top spec is far from old (read as X2 3800, 2 Gig and 7900GTX)

    I have to say that 2K support is really gash.

    HOW LONG.............does a patch take?


    Add to the fact i cant refund it becuase it is "opened"

    Brilliant.

    meh, i've already lost 2 of my installs due to Vista decided to go flop.

    i really hate this, Steam is a better idea compared to this. (not saying playing single player requires online activation is good, hence HL2) but they should just stick to the old method, or at least do it right the first time round.

    Kinda useless "fix" if you ask me - one MB upgrade and ... Then again, if the game is as short as some people say, who cares to reinstall?

    shame its not going to fix the dumbed down console feel of it, when will game companies learn that console and pc gamers are two different breeds and dont mix.

    bit-tech is a pc based site so why is it when i see a gaming review i have to question what format its on?

    meh, i've re-played games many many years later. On principle ,I feel that if you buy it, it should be install&hardware independant. At least this is better than nothing I guess? :blah:

    i agree, what's Halo 3 doing on the games review section. take that linear, bog-standard, dumb console game off the PC based site!
