Download Bioshock demo now, Crysis next month

It has been little over a week since 2K Games rolled out the new BioShock PC demo, containing the first 45 minutes of the game along with a beginning cinematic that establishes the setting and beginning plot line. The game, which has since been released in its full version, has been receiving raving reviews for delivering superb gameplay, combined with an irresistibly sinister, engrossing narrative and awesome graphics.

Some already call BioShock the benchmark against which games for years to come will, and indeed must, be measured. If you don't already plan to purchase a copy, you can head over to our download section and download the PC demo for this epic adventure – and don’t forget to grab the latest update for your NVIDIA or ATI card.

In other news, Electronic Arts announced it would be releasing a free demo for its highly anticipated, graphically impressive PC shooter Crysis on September 25 – the same day Bungie's Halo 3 hits the Xbox 360. The demo will comprise the entire first level in Crysis, giving gamers a chance to experience the open-ended level design and put their PC hardware to the test.

BioShock is an amazing game. There won't be another like this for 5 years.

I've already bought it this week, but not installed it yet. There's something of a "buzz" around this game - like there was with Quake 2, Tomb Raider, etc - as if there is something "special" here.By all accounts there is.

I have only played the demo in 360 so far (shame on me!!!). In my defense I just got the console and wanted a nice game to see what a new HDTV can do. It sure as hell left me impressed. I just downloaded the PC demo to see how that runs in Vista and maybe buy the game... after all you can't replace the keyboard/mouse controls for a FPS.

I'm running BioShock on XP with 9.0c and BFG 8800GTS 640mb card. Game is fluid, and the water effects look so real that you can drink it. The whole 40's look of the game adds to the eeriness. The music and sound is out of this world, and so are the physics. If you are in to FPS shooters with rich experience and storyline this one is for you. I was a big fan of SystemShock 1 and 2 and this game is ranks right up with them.
