"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 got me back into video games when it came out. I have yet to play an linear FPS franchise which such an immersive story and atmosphere. Honestly I don't believe I have been so fascinated by a game's story as much as I have been by Bioshock(and the Bioshock franchise). If you have only played Bioshock 2 and/or Infinite and you weren't impressed PLEASE give this game a try.
Expected more from the spiritual sequel of System Shock, but ok.gamma_rad | July 14, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Dont let the title fool you. this is a very good game. However it is often cited as a spiritual sequel to System Shock 2 which in my opinion is a very flawed comparison. Bioshock is a good game, with beautiful art design and good writing. The gameplay itself is good but nothing overly unique - which is good as it works well on a tried and true formula. if you're looking for a shooter set in a world you can get lost inside of, this is the perfect game for you.
A work of art...Prodakn | June 11, 2015 | See all Prodakn's reviews »
Bioshock includes one of the most unique and beautiful enviroments ever put in a video game. The atomosphere and the story complete each other in a subtle way (extra points for the amazing intro). The gameplay consists of weapons and plasmids (super human abilitis like: telekenisis, shooting fire,lightning etc.) & "perks" which change the way you play the game. The graphics still look amazing, and this game was released in 2007. I would also like to add the fact that it has one of the best story twists in a game, and don't let anybody spoiler it for you if you are considering to play this game. Bioshock is more then a game, it is an experience which shouldn't be missed by any gamer, it is also one of my favourite games.
Are you seriously reading a review for this game?Bryggz | May 21, 2015 | See all Bryggz's reviews »
I love this game! An entire WORLD is crafted, and quite well at that. Pros and cons in easy, bullet format. Pros - Weapons are varied and satisfying. They're pretty commonplace (flamethrower, machine gun, etc) but everything has more than one type of ammo which spices things up a bit. The bolt thrower is my favorite. - Plasmids are fun and varied. I personally loved making a Big Daddy my personal puppet and let him mow down everything in sight. - The story is great, to me, and I love the way it's told. You pick up recordings, and you play them with sub-titles. I don't know why but I love this presentation in particular. No cut-scenes, just continuous story. - The hacking mini-games were engaging and presented a fair risk-vs.-reward system that made you really consider whether or not you should hack at that moment. Cons - I like playing games on harder difficulties. I'm not a fan of games that make games "hard" by just giving enemies a SHITLOAD of health. This really takes away from the atmosphere.
Doesn't do it for mesycomantis1991 | May 17, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
It looks and feels very interesting. The world is fascinating, the controls are good, and the vigors add a nice layer of gameplay The problem for me is just that I don't have fun. It feels slow and tedious, with nothing truly interesting ever happening. I've tried it a couple times and probably will again, but it just doesn't do it for me. I acknowledge its quality, but I can't get into it unfortunately.
