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?

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 me

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.

Nice shooting mechanics

Armannn | May 13, 2015 | See all Armannn's reviews »

This game was developed by 2K Boston and was released in 2007. However, I have to say that I still love this game and totally recommend it. The game features some very cool weapons which you can even upgrade. The shooting mechanics are pretty nice. Some players have complained that there are some sound issues with Windows 7 so keep it in mind. However, I didn't have a bad experience with this game so I'll just say, go and get it (be it on a sale or not).

Missed this until recently, regrettably

I somehow missed the Bioshock series. Not that I hadn't heard how popular it was but having lots of FPSs to play with I back burnered it despite having all three versions in my library. I was looking for something to use with a VR HMD that requires the old nVidia drivers for 3d so I was restricted to using a 7900gtx. I can't believe how polished and optimised this game is! I run it in stereo3d (S3D) with most settings maxed at well over 30fps, even when it gets busy. This will run beautifully on almost anything. The gameplay, story, atmosphere, graphics are excellent. I rarely give a 100% rating but this IS a must have addition to your library. A great primer for the rest of the series too, which you will play :)
