short BioShock review

February 3rd, 2008

Bioshock for the XBox 360 is probably the best game I played through in 2007, and this was a year with other truly great games like “Portal” and “Super Mario Galaxy.” What makes Bioshock good is a combination of old-fashioned, first person shooter action. What makes it great is a richly detailed underwater art deco universe that never blinks, and a backstory that I’m convinced does sly double-duty as a refutation of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism. Pick it up, if you can.

    Hey, Jeff, Google’s pimping Mike Huckabee in our sidebar. We might want to nix Google ads for the next while.

    I don’t mind making a couple bucks off Huckabee. Anything that drains his already drained coffers quicker has to be a good thing.

    Well, good point!

    You are right about the Ayn Rand reference… You are too smart.
