BioShock Patch Causes Framerate Issues

bioshock1-2.jpgA new patch has apparently been released for BioShock, but you may want to hold off on downloading it. Besides the fact that no one seems to know exactly what problems it’s meant to fix, some people are reporting that it causes some horrible frame rate problems that render the game practically unplayable. It’s a little strange that they released a patch for a game that doesn’t have a multiplayer function, but it’s downright crazy if it just hurts one of the best games to come out this year. If you’ve already downloaded the patch, it looks like you’ll have to clear your Xbox’s cache to get the game working right again.

Maybe the patch has something to do with the widescreen formatting? I could see this causing framerate issues.

I updated my copy of BioShock earlier today and I did notice some framerate issues when I started my new game. I got nervous a little bit because I just got my 360 back from Texas, so I thought it was just messing up again.

On the positive side, I played for about 30-45 minutes and I didn’t notice any framerate issues aside from the opening scene.

I went to go play the game thru yesterday for the second time. I was prompted for an update so I accepted. What a mistake! After the patch took affect I suffered horrendous framerate issues everywhere in the game – I even loaded past save games from my first play thru. I sadly turned it off after about 30 minutes of dealing with it. Something literally has gone terribly awry in Rapture, and is now unplayable.

I’m glad I’m not the only one with the framerate issue. The game is unplayable for me ever since the update. It acts as if the controller stops working for 2 seconds every 10 – 20 seconds of play. I can’t play the game at all now.
