A lot has changed in nearly a decade since the original BioShock. However, we remember the world of Rapture as terrifying and atmospheric. And not full of glitched out water graphics that looks as if someone’s graphic card is about to give way. BioShock Remastered PC is nothing what fans of the game remember for the original BioShock.

BioShock Remastered PC is riddled with bugs and graphical glitches

We went hands-on with the remastered version of BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite. BioShock 1 appears to be the most affected with problems at the moment. There is a lot of screen flickering. Furthermore, water doesn’t render. Consequently, this gives the game (which is based in a city underwater) an awkward and non-appealing look.

Lower quality water effects, the absence of surround sound, reduced environmental fog and particle effects. Furthermore, there are visual bugs, and missing light shafts among other reported issues.

Graphics options are limited. So far the games in the remaster have anisotropic Filtering, Window Mode, VSync, Anti-aliasing and “Expanded” FOV. However, to access other graphics options and advanced graphics options, you will have to tinker with the ini file.

The game’s PC reviews on Steam reflect the same woes. Furthermore, there are mouse problems. Acceleration and sensitivity don’t work as they should. And you can’t move the mouse in menus sometimes. The hilarious Steam reviews basically sum up the reception of the game by the PC community.

BioShock is a shooter with unique weapons and tactics. Complete with an arsenal of revolvers, shotguns, and grenade launchers. Players have to genetically modify their DNA to become a deadlier weapon. It is a first-person shooter video game series developed by Irrational Games. It’s the first under the name 2K Boston/2K Australia—and designed by Ken Levine.
