Fantastic game, great value, falls short of 5 due to glitches - no spoilers

The game is fantastic and for 40 bucks you get 3 full games, and all the downloaded content. I would have easily paid more for this entire collection. When you do play, make sure you go into the "extras" so you can play the downloaded content, both 1 and 2 pretty fun so far but you should definitely play them in order. UPDATE: I have finished Infinite and included it in my review, for a complete review.
I played this on the Xbox One
The reason for 4/5 instead of the full 5, is because of the glitches. Games will have glitches I understand that, but Bioshock/2/infinte came out in 2007/2010/2013, and when I researched fixes for the glitches I experienced, there were complaints all over the internet about these glitches, back in 2007 and so on. I feel that the developers should have fixed these glitches for the remaster. They clearly knew about them, but made no fix or repairs, which I think is unethical...if you are going to re-release the game (to make more money), then I feel that problems should be fixed before re-release, however it should not steer you away from this game, because it is such a unique game, and very addicting. I will not spoil anything for you in my review, so I did not name characters, weapons, story lines, etc.
The glitches I did experience were minor, but the one major one I feel like I need to mention was the save glitch. Basically, you can make a new save whenever you want, and the game will autosave every new level and create a new save...basically what happens is that you can actually make" too many saves", and then the game errors, and you are unable to make a new save or save your progress, which becomes an issue towards the end of the Bioshock 1, due to autosaves... and then for some reason the save slots are linked in the background in Bioshock 2, which means you can error for "too many saves" right away in Bioshock 2...it happened to me in the first few saves. You can fix this by going back to Bioshock 1 and deleting your old saves. There is also an issue where in Bioshock 2, the game gets stuck saving, and you cannot load, and you lose all you progress up to that point....so take my advice! have only about 5 manual saves, and 1 autosave and rotate saving over your previous files - and OFTEN. Bioshock Infinite uses an auto-save feature and does not have saving issues.
The play type is so unique and different, you find all kinds of different power ups, that you can use to help you through your journey. I typically do not like "magic" in games, and I typically prefer shooters, but with this game it is really up to the player on how they want to play it. There are basically power ups you can get in the game that help you do certain tasks, or help you defeat enemies,but you will have to play to figure out what I am talking about :)
You can definitely take your time and search through every area (recommended) and find some hidden goodies, or maybe some things that will help you along the way....or maybe some valuables.... I took my time and literally went everywhere possible and I got about 25 hours (including extras) on Bioshock 1, and 21 hours (including extras) in Bioshock 2. Bioshock Infinite took me about 20 hours, without extras. The extras in the game can last awhile as there is a "Wave Mode", so however many hours you get out of it is up to you. With that being said, you do not HAVE to do that, so if you do not like looking around and collecting, you can definitely follow the games path, and finish in much faster time.
Infinite was a let down for me, and I honestly thought it hurt the reputation of the game. The artwork and scenery is incredible, but I feel like too much time was focused on that than the actual gameplay. It was like playing a completely different game. The second I walked into the game I thought to myself, oh man this is going to be great, I cannot wait to see what is ahead!, but throughout the game I was thinking, ok, when us all the fun stuff going to happen? and then it ended. I kinda just pushed through to complete the game. The story was over complicated...and honestly I think they tried too hard to make it interesting. Honestly I think infinite was super over hyped, and I probably would give the game 2/5 by itself.
I played on the hardest difficulty and Bioshock 1 was definitely a challenge....Bioshock 2 however was too easy for me, I wish they did have one more difficulty level, that was a bit harder. Bioshock Infinite was too easy. I also played on the hardest difficulty, but I only died maybe 3-4 times throughout...until the end....the final scenes of gameplay were so difficult, it did not match the rest of the game...it was so odd, that I had cruised through the game, and at the very end, it was so difficult, i thought about dropping the difficulty. It is hard to explain, but it just did not fit. how hard it was at the end vs the rest of the game.
Do not forget about the extras! It is kinda hidden in the menu, and does not pop-out first glance...the only reason I even figured out that it had the extras was because I was actually watching a video on YouTube about the game and they mentioned it, and I was like oh crap! there's more! So go into "extras" once you finish the story, and it will be there.
Anyways the game is very cool, and I really enjoyed the story in 1, and I really really like the character you play in 2....I thought it was an impressive way to keep the gamer intrigued with the game, and not get the player "Bored" of the same tasks of Bioshock 1, especially after coming directly off Bioshock 1....but you will have to play to see :) This game has already gone down as one of the best games ever created and I hope there will be another in the future. Should really be 5/5, for Bioshoc 1/2 but those glitches had me flustered, and infinite closer to 2/5 maybe 3/5.
Overall the game is a great value, and definitely worth the buy. You should still play infinite, a lot of people did like it, and it is so very different, but you should buy for 1/2. Also play them in order. Things will make much more sense (as expected). Infinite could be played without playing 1/2, but you might not understand some references, so I would just play them in order.
