This game is an amazing piece of work, containing one of gaming's most surprising plot twists in recent times. The gun play and abilities all balance each other out, and the enemies feel real, lending themselves quite well to the creation of space, making you feel as though the world you are playing in is real itself.
This game has amazing visuals, sounds, and gameplay. I definitely recommend this for all shooter fans. You have to play this game!

Personal rating: 9/10
This game is absolutely amazing. I first bought the triple pack containing all Bioshock's and kind of ignored this one and the second game of the franchise, I made a serious mistake because this game has everything like great graphics, great storytelling and great playability. The only thing I found kind of boring was the lack of new enemies, there were always Splicers or Big Daddys and no new enemies, but other than that it's a great game that I recommend to any player.

I usually dislike horror games. i get scared quite easily. But with Bioshock its worth it! Its not really that much of a scary game. The atmosphere is great, they made the underwater city feels great.(9/10) There aren't a lot of "People" in Rapture(the underwater city name) But the ones you meet are, intriguing, you wanna talk to them, you wanna hear what they have to say. and the enemies(AI) is both smart and psychotic, the enemies are based on humans that got a bit "mad" because they got addicted to "ADAM" Wich is the currency in the game(the currency for upgrading your plasmids.. the story is both interesting and amazing.(10/10) From the first minute i got hoooked on it, and wanted to know what would happen next. The combat isn't like any other FPS, you need to plan accordingly you cant just "Pray N' Spray" (at least in the higher difficulty levels). Overall i give this game a 95. A must buy. Why just 95? because Nothing is Perfect.
Bioshock: loads of fun with a thrilling story!N2tZ | Sept. 3, 2014 | See all N2tZ's reviews »
Bioshock is scary but humorous, breathtaking and sinister, gripping and touching.
Everything about this game is amazing, from the beautiful soundtrack to the immersive voice acting, finishing with the thrilling story. The setting of the game has great level design and the atmosphere it creates is deep and enticing. The gameplay is exciting, giving the player loads of weapons, plasmids and tonics. The player is able to customize their character using the different abilities and weapons they collect along the way. Bioshock is one my favorite games, truly a magnificent piece of art.
Overall Bioshock is one of the greatest games and I truly recommend it to everyone. It’s a must-buy in my opinion.

This game is simply a masterpiece, from its history to its gameplay, always surprises you and does not let you stop playing. Totally worthy of being part of the top 50 games you must play before you die. This was the first game of the 3 Bioshocks, so far I have none of the other 2 but they seem to be as (or more) good as the first. My problem with this type of game were always bullets. At the end I always ran out and that did lower some score. Overall, I love this game, I've played 9 hours so therefore, my note for this game is: 9.10
