As a veteran returning to play through the three games of BioShock: The Collection is a pleasure, but it’s a bit disappointing to watch the updates and behind-the-scenes content to each entry gradually decline. The original BioShock receives the greatest overhaul and flourishes with new textures and lighting that bring it almost up to modern standards, and a Ken Levine retrospective, while BioShock Infinite is essentially the PC version Of course the ideas and gameplay presented and executed in all three are as memorable as they were when first released, and anyone who missed them a decade ago should definitely consider rectifying that. If you intend to play one of these fascinating and fun adventures for the first time or the tenth, the BioShock Collection is the best way to go about it.

Time has worn some holes in each games’ reputation, but these are still three of the most ambitious and daring action games of modern times.

If you are a PS4 or Xbox One owner, Bioshock: The Collection should be in your, um, collection, whether in the 2-disc physical format or digital download. Unfortunately, I’ve read reports that the PC version has issues. (Like bad ones.) As such PC players should wait for the (fingers crossed) eventual patches.

If you fancy playing BioShock: The Collection for the first time or perhaps on the go, you can't really go wrong with the Switch port of the trilogy. The stories of each game strike just as well now as they did years ago, perhaps even more so in today's social and political climate, as BioShock Infinite explores the issues of racism and the fight against inequality and injustice.

Three great adventures masterfully ported to Nintendo Switch. They only missing feature is they're not running at 60 fps, but the rest is on spot, showing an adaptation on par with the PS4 and Xbox One remasters. Also, keep in mind that if you buy it, physical or digital, you will need a big microSD, because the download is quite big...

A convenient opportunity to replay the whole saga where you want. Or, just in case, to find out what this BioShock is that everyone has been talking about for thirteen years, of course. Too bad for the not exciting graphic quality of the two remastered, especially the first one. In handheld mode, at least, you don't notice that much.

BioShock: The Collection is a good remaster, with graphics visibly improved. It includes all single-player content from the three games and that makes this collection perfect for those who never played a BioShock in their life, but the lack of freshly new content makes it less suitable for longstanding fans.

Three masterpieces in a single pack. If you never played them, this is your golden opportunity.

Three great games packaged for new and old players that look and run well. Not the best versions, but it's a nice to have BioShock: The Collection on Switch.

The Switch port is as deserving of praise as the original release of BioShock: The Collection. You’ll have to put up with some of the remasters’ less desirable changes, and the audio could be better, but BioShock: The Collection for the Nintendo Switch remains a trio of fantastic ports. Would you kindly give them a gander?
