The Bioshock Remaster Looks Like Shit

Spread the Word!

I don’t get excited when games get remastered because they’re not actually “remastered” at all. 

The old Bioshock games are the next games on a long list of games that are getting “remastered”. When I watched the trailer to the so called remaster I honestly thought the before footage looked a little better. I’ll admit that the Big Daddy that I saw looked better, but everything else is minimal at best.

When I think of a game getting remastered I immediately think of Halo, or Metro 2033. Those were real remasters in my opinion, but this isn’t. The Bioshock series is one of my all time favorite series, but I will not be purchasing this because I already own the original trilogy on PC. I don’t need this and it’s a shame because this game could have looked so much better then it does. I was hoping it would look more like Bioshock Infinite.

If you’ve never played Bioshock then go ahead and get this set of games, but if you have what’s the point?

If you’re going to remaster a old game then go all out or don’t bother at all.

    They remake BioShock when everybody is hoping for a new one. Man, this is a letdown.

    I totally agree with you.

    I played BioShock late last year. And it looked amazing in my opinion. It didn’t need a remaster or a graphical upgrade.

    Maybe the remaster is meant to generate more interest in the series? I hope that they use the profits of this game for a new BioShock game!

      I doubt they need extra money for a new Bioshock game. They should have plenty from Infinite’s success. This is just a lazy remaster for a great franchise. I’m really disappointed in this.

    I’m wondering too why they bothering with this… I have these on the 360 and there’s nothing about the games AT ALL that makes me think they need to be rereleased so they can look better. They look pretty damn good as they are.

      I agree. They look fine as they are, but if you’re going to remaster a game then go all out or don’t bother. Can you imagine playing Bioshock 1 with Infinite’s graphics? What we have here is a simple cash grab. I would prefer a fourth game instead of these half assed remasters that we’re getting.
