BioShock: The Collection released earlier this week on consoles and just became available on PC yesterday, and it appears there are many unhappy customers as its Steam reviews reveal severely poor optimizations on the platform.
One of the biggest issues PC players are having with their respective version is it shares many of the same issues they had with the original release, which includes poor mouse optimization, lack of significant video options, and audio issues, to name a few.
Some other issues include lack of a field-of-view (FOV) slider, less menu options than the original game, issues with lighting, menu sensitivity problems, and, of course, crashes.
Considering BioShock is now a nine-year old game, these fixes should have been implemented a long time ago. Unfortunately, it appears the PC versions of BioShock Remastered and BioShock 2 Remastered didn’t receive as much love as its console counterparts, and as a result, nearly half of current Steam reviews aren’t recommending either of them.
While we’re hoping 2K takes the initiative to fix the problems PC players are having with both remastered games, considering it had years to do so, we have a feeling it won’t any time soon. Our recommendation? Either pick up its console version or pray 2K decides to finally fix the PC versions of BioShock and BioShock 2.
