Unfortunately the reviews and footage have completely put me off Bioshock. As I seem to keep saying, I find myself rather disturbed by the game to tell you the truth. I can't really explain it that well, since I've played games like Bloodlines and been fine with them, but those have dark worlds but don't really focus solely on killing insane dead people and/or the only people children care for.

The game looks brutal, and thats not really to my taste. Shame, but at least I can keep waiting for Mass Effect.

Nope, I'm going off reviews and trailer footage mainly. Like I said, thats put me off actually trying the demo :blank:

So I tried the demo to get my penis back and suffice to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The Little Sisters still disturb me, and I am having to constantly look over my shoulder lest something jump me like it did in Bloodlines, but overall it was enjoyable.

Odds are that I won't be buying it though. I am not an incredibly big fan of psychological horror stuff like that, and whilst the demo was more 'acceptable' to me than I thought, after playing through Stranglehold it really doesn't compare on the fun factor. A good shooter yes, but not really for me I think.
