Release Dates & Platforms:
  • 16/09/2016 - PC

Advice for consumers

This game is rated PEGI 18 which restricts availability to ADULTS ONLY and is not suitable for anyone below this age. This rating has been given due to frequent strong violence towards human characters, including vulnerable and defenceless people, strong language and gambling. Not suitable for persons under 18 years of age.

Brief outline of the game

Bioshock: The Collection is a compilation of four previously released and examined games and their respective downloadable content: BioShock Infinite Complete Edition comprising: Burial at Sea Episodes 1 and 2 The Clash in the Clouds BioShock Ultimate Rapture Edition comprising: BioShock BioShock 2.

Content specific issues

These games were rated PEGI 18 for graphic bloody violence. Gross violence includes graphic burning of enemies, decapitation, the use of a gun which microwaves enemies, causing them to explode in a cloud of blood, or impalement on a rotating drill. There are several instances of violence towards vulnerable and defenceless people in the Burial at Sea DLCs, including an instance in which a little girl is flushed out of a functioning heating vent or another in which the same girl is restrained and has an ice pick inserted into her eye socket. Bioshock Infinite features the words ‘fuck’ and ‘fucker’. Burial at Sea features slot machines in a mall, which the player is able to use and can win

Other issues

The games are set in historical dystopias, which mimic radical American politics from the 20th century. As a result, there are parts of Bioshock Infinite and its DLCs which include offensive and discriminatory language. Such references include words such as ‘gook’, ‘chink’, ‘paddy’, ‘negroes’, ‘coloured people’, ‘negress’, ‘yellow’, ‘injuns’, ‘orientals’, ‘slant’, ‘slant-eyed’ and ‘darkies’. However, within the narrative of the two dystopian societies, these references are not condoned overall. There are also occasional instances of mild swearing, with words such as ‘shit’, ‘bastard’, ‘whore’, ‘damn’, ‘Jesus’ and ‘bitch’. Also in keeping with its historical context, there are parts of the Burial at Sea DLCs which encourage alcohol and tobacco use, such as an increase in health when the player drinks or overt advertisement of cigarettes. The same DLCs also allude to disturbing issues such as human trafficking and child abuse. There are also occasional instances of swear words such as: shit, damn, hell, whore, ass, bastard, goddamn, Jesus, and bitch. The player has no control over what lines are spoken in specific instances.
