BioShock is a great game. It is one of those rare games that combines not only amazingly polished graphics and sound, but very solid, deep, complex gameplay, a great story, and an overall feeling of immersion that sucks you in and keeps you playing that few other titles can match. BioShock is a must play game for Xbox 360 owners. The sequel, BioShock 2, is also highly recommended, but not quite as good as the original.
I'll come right out and say it. Halo: Reach is easily the best Halo game yet. From the campaign to the multiplayer to the forge to Firefight, everything in Halo: Reach is uniformly polished and excellent. The gameplay is sharp and precise. The presentation is stunning. The wealth of content is impressive. You'll be playing this for months to come. There is no question that Bungie is going out on top with its final Halo game.
There has been a lot of rhetoric and chest thumping coming from EA and DICE in the weeks leading up to Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s release about how it was going to be the game to knock Modern Warfare from its spot on top of the multiplayer shooter world. After spending some time with the final build, we can happily say they do come pretty close to that goal. The campaign is kind of weak, but the real draw here is the multiplayer and it is as solid as you’ll find in the genre.
