"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

This game takes place in the 1960s and is set after the downfall of the underwater city, Rapture. Like any utopian society, it falls apart. The creators did an amazing job with creating this atmosphere that will simply make you forget about the outside world. When playing you completely submerge yourself into the game and all the elements that make it great. There's so much information and story packed into this game and it's truly incredible. This game makes you think and leaves you wanting to know more and more. All three games are great and I suggest playing them all. You'll be missing out if you don't.
Truly a great game!friendbear70 | July 21, 2014 | See all friendbear70's reviews »
Wow, this game is FANTASTIC. The graphics are great, even on a low setting. There are constantly things jumping out at you, sounds that catch you off guard. This game keeps you at your toes, ready to face whatever danger lies ahead. If you only have 20 dollars, this is definitely the game you have to get!
The music and sounds are great. The plot is great. The suddenness and the monsters are fantastic. You will be begging to play the sequel when you finish.
There is only 1 bad thing that bug me. It is really creepy. Not for the weak. And it is really slow on laptops.

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.
