Bioshock got a face-lift with this remastered edition. The original Bioshock you know and love now looks better than ever before. The enhanced visuals genuinely improve the gameplay experience, which has you deep underwater in the creepy city of Rapture in the 50's. You fight the drugged-out mutated inhabitants of the once-great underwater paradise and hunt for ways to alter and improve your DNA to gain abilities and powers. Bioshock has a very unique feel to it, but has borrowed alot from it's spiritual predecessor System Shock. If you liked System Shock, you'd like Bioshock. I'd recommend this game to anyone as the whole series is absolutely amazing. You'd seriously be doing yourself a favor by picking this up and trying it out.
Many people tend to confuse BioShock with a killing game and pure action (if it is) but I buy it because I was attracted to the story, in its time I did not think as much about the game as it was but wanted to feel the story as such, and the truth that I love, in its moment the BioShock now with this version remastered with incredible graphics I hope in the future to buy it again by GreenManGaming the remastered version since I want to test it for the new graphics. I recommend it.
It only took a couple of minutes of gameplay for me to love Bioshock and what it represents. This is a new approach to what we know about story driven games. Combining mutant powers and arcade shooter mechanic and an amazing story and characters, this is an incredible experience that everyone should try, even if you're not into shooter games. Recommended.
A truly fantastic FPS. The Narrative, told though voice-logs and a 1-way radio, does a great job in maintaining a good distance for the player; A perfect balance is struck between isolation (being forced to fight off hordes of splicers alone) and companionship (hearing a friendly voice motivate you forward.) As for the gameplay, barring a few personal gripes (there shouldn't ever be a hack that is 100% impossible, solely due to bad RNG), there are very few things to dislike. The wide selection of plasmids and firearms allows for numerous playstyles and adds a bit of replay value. I'd personally enjoy it if you could limit your armory to just the weapons you use regularly (too many times did I over-scroll to the chemical thrower when just trying to take a simple picture), but this is in no way a deal-breaker. Whether you heard about it back in the day and are just getting around to the classics, or recently played Bioshock Infinite and wanted to know what happened, this game is without a doubt worth a play, even if it may appear a bit visually dated.
Bioshock is a story heavy survival horror rpg, and train simulator, among other things. Ok, the train thing was a joke, but to be serious, there's a lot of dept in this game. There are many-many weapons, plus you can use X-men like powers as well, i a battle to the death, against enemies and machnies that are really out to get you. This world is pretty unforgiving, especially, if you try to be a good guy. So, would you kindly buy this game?:)
