This one's been on my "must play" list for quite awhile. Coincidentally, I'm taking a week's vacation after my Summer classes end next week.

some early scans of Official Xbox Mag. show that they rated BioShock 10/10

only the 3rd game they have gave a 10 to.

so it must be Superb!

OXM Rated 10/10

I havnt been able to DL it for some reason, the DL starts normally, then slows down after a little while, and then grinds to a halt, no other demos have this problem, the Stranglehold demo is the same size(ish) and it downloads in a few minutes no problem.

I'll just wait till the game comes out tbh, Ive known for months that I was going to buy it, and I suppose by not playing the demo I wont have diluted it for myself, so it will be even more amazing when I do actually play it. Furthermore, its out in just over a week.

yea,i have heard alot of people had the same problem.Luckily mine downloaded just fine....The lead designer of this game said the demo wouldnt be just a small chunk of the real game,but totally different than what happens in the real game so i think this demo is a must play regardless if you're gonna buy the game or not...

the demo is not too long...it took me like 40 mins the first run through it,because i was exploring and admiring the graphics,but the 2nd time through it,it only took me like 15-20 mins...

I've played the demo like 6-7 times now,and still not tired of it

and i thought Gears of War's graphics were stunning..

I've had the download problem too, but given that I planned to buy the game anyway it doesn't really bother me!

I tend not to trust reviews much these days, but I'll still be buying the game irrespective of all the good press it's getting.
