heh, Alec you are touchy w/ Halo.
I've played some of Bioshock and was very impressed by the Randish philosophies and neat little Half Life 2ish gameplay. Not quite revolutionary like people say but sure was fun. You really can't say it ripped off Dues Ex, because all they did was put RPG elements into a shooter, since then lots of games have done and will do that. Crysis for example will allow you some customization and the like. Though I agree, Bioshock is the furthest thing from a "real" FPS, thats the whole point.
On the other hand, as a major Halo fan, I bought Crackdown to play the H3 beta and ended up playing more Gears of War multiplayer b/c it was so underwhelming to me. Don't know, its really lost its luster for me, H3 feels like Counter strike source to be perfectly honest.
No longer have an xbox so I'd have to wait to play the full game @ a friends house, but my impressions were that the game did not graphically look up to par with other big budget games.
