This pack contains:
BioShock - a first person shooter experience unlike any other, played out in Rapture, an immense underwater utopia torn apart by a genetic civil war. Explore a deadly but incredible art deco world filled with formidable technology and fascinating characters. You'll have a complete arsenal at your disposal, from simple revolvers to rocket launchers and flamethrowers. Challenge the constraints of nature by genetically modifying your DNA with injected PLASMIDS and embrace super human powers.
Multiplayer in BioShock 2 will provide a rich prequel experience that expands the origins of the BioShock fiction. Set during the fall of Rapture, players assume the role of a Plasmid test subject for Sinclair Solutions, a premier provider of Plasmids and Tonics in the underwater city of Rapture that was first explored in the original BioShock. Players will need to use all the elements of the BioShock toolset to survive, as the full depth of the BioShock experience is refined and transformed into a unique multiplayer experience that can only be found in Rapture.
BioShock 2: Minerva's Den
Minerva's Den offers a brand-new, self-contained BioShock story, presenting a side of Rapture you've never seen before. Seek out the tools you'll need to unlock new goals and spaces in the order you choose. Face Rapture's full range of opposition as you increase in power---a new challenge is always right around the corner.
With the United States emerging as a world power, the floating City of Columbia is a mighty symbol of American ideals, launched with great fanfare to the cheers of a captivated public. But what begins as an endeavour of hope soon turns to disaster, as the city disappears into the clouds, its whereabouts unknown. The greatest accomplishment in American history has vanished without a trace.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Parts 1 & 2
Come back to Rapture in a story that brings Booker and Elizabeth to the underwater city on the eve of its fall from grace. Developed by Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock and BioShock Infinite, this DLC features Rapture as you’ve never seen it before—a shining jewel at the bottom of the ocean, built almost entirely from scratch in the BioShock Infinite engine.
See the world through Elizabeth’s eyes in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two. Set immediately after the conclusion of BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode One, this concluding episode puts you in the role of Elizabeth as she journeys through Rapture in an effort to rescue the little sister she abandoned.

The 3 games (plus DLCs) in the Bioshock series are basically a follow-up to the System Shock series of games, from every point of view. Their gameplay consists of shooting, exploding, electrocuting, freezing, burning, possessing, stunning with bees or crows, photographing (yes, you read that right) and last but not least maiming with whatever object comes handy (honorable mentions include a wrench - that can prove better than the rest of the weapons with the right setup, sports equipment - fans may know what I'm particularly talking about, random junk and even your enemies' bodies) hundreds of psycho -goons and occasionally the perhaps less crazier and irredeemably evil, morally ambiguous major antagonists. This is but part of the charm that makes this series so adored by its fans, though. The rest of it comes from beautiful, unique and creative environments and ambience, unforgettable characters, solid and engaging gameplay (the side-quests and mini-games that make the rest of the interactive experience), as well as central element that the games are build around: the deep and thought-provoking plots that are, in this humble reviewer's opinion, some of the best in the genre. Some of you may have already heard that this franchise is overrated and may be too much trouble for it's worth, especially considering it's not 'current gen' anymore - even Infinite is 3 years old at the time of this review, and while it's definitely not perfect, few games have reached closer to the apex of games as an art form than the Bioshock games. It would be a disservice to not play them at least once.
The Bioshock Franchise Pack is a huge pack including one of the best game series to date. Included is Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Infinite, plus all relevant DLC content. Bioshock and Bioshock 2 take you to Rapture, a city under the sea that is both haunting and beautiful. This is a terrific FPS, with more than just standard weapons. Plasmids are special abilities that will have you throwing fire, ice, or a myriad of abilities. Bioshock Infinite moves the game to clouds, with a city in the sky around 50 years before the events of the original game. Both the same and different as the previous games, Infinite one of the most "movie" like game stories made. The included DLC is well worth the time as well, with BS2s Minerva's Den being an absolute jewel, the add-ons for Infinite being useful in game, and Burial at Sea being a well made conclusion to the series for Irrational Games. Seriously, if you haven't played Bioshock yet, why not??? Buy this to get everything at once, and be prepared for a absolutely unique experience.
