"BioShock is the ultimate rarity: not only does it live up to its lofty promise, but exceeds it through simple, old fashioned talent and imagination - not to mention verve, style,class, wit, and sheer bloody-minded ambition." - Eurogamer
"BioShock's real strengths are as a compelling work of interactive fiction, and as a unique ride through a warped world with some great payoff built into its mysterious plot." - Gamespot

A spiritual successor to System Shock, Bioshock is one of the greatest games ever made. The atmosphere is absolutely perfect, with Rapture being one of the most vividly imagined gaming worlds ever made. The gunplay is excellent, giving you access to both plasmids and conventional weapons in a way where you can use both in an extremely satisfying manner. The story is fantastic, and the soundtrack is haunting, fitting the overall mood of the game perfectly. Bioshock's graphics still hold up today, and the game runs perfectly fine on any number of PCs without frame drops. One of the most unique experiences in gaming, Bioshock is a must-play.

It is a few years old now, and if you have not played any games in this series yet, then you must do so immediately. This game is very well received for a reason; because it is straight up amazing. The game features an extreme level of immersion in the underwater world of Rapture that is set in the early 1900s. The story and exploration of the game will keep your eyes glued to the screen from the start, and the very enjoyable and fun gameplay will keep you having fun until the end.

I never really got into Bioshock when it first came out. Later last year, I ended up getting Bioshock Infinite in a bundle just because I really wanted the other game at a great price. So, one night I decided to give Infinite a go, and I was sucked into the universe from there. Bioshock is a classic in modern gaming. Rarely have I played a game that drew me in and kept me in such immersion as the storyline and gameplay of Bioshock. It is a rare treat to play a game such as this. Highly, highly, highly recommended.

A nitty gritty, beautifully wretched, dark and wonderfully creepy experience. This game will withstand the test of time and continue to produce an increasingly large following as the years go by, and more people get the opportunity to experience this game.
The game places melee weapons, plasmids [a magic-esque mechanic], and ranged weapons to progress through the world of rapture, eliminating the lost inhabitants there within, in order to find out exactly who you are, where you are from, and how the heck you ended up in Rapture in the first place?
This game is absolutely fantastic in every regard, and needs to be at the top of your list for games to play (if you haven't already).
Well I guess this concludes my review, so I guess I'll end it with one simple question: Would you kindly go and pick up a copy of this game?
Intense atmosphereTheTanko | Feb. 15, 2014 | See all TheTanko's reviews »
This game has by far the most captivating atmosphere. The game takes place in a utopia-turned-dystopia named Rapture, filled with crazies all over the place and the iconic Big Daddies. Basic premise: run around, try to find a way out, don't die. Along the way, don't curl up in a corner in cry; seriously, the intensity of the atmosphere can get overwhelming at times. The gameplay is varied and challenging, the atmosphere intense, and overall presents a very compelling story in which you must make choices you'd rather not as you witness the same choices being made by others. It's a game designed to make you think, and you will spend a lot of time away from the game thinking about all the things you see and do. It's one creepy game, but more than worth it.
