System Shock is back

If you miss the days of System Shock, this game is more or less a follow-up to it in terms of atmosphere, although Rapture make it feel like something different and give it own personality. While the story is nothing amazing (it's spoiled to you after first 15 minutes of the game) with barely any surprises, music is just ok and shooting is average at best, what makes it great are plasmids, which are kind of like jedi powers and make this game a lot of fun. What actually makes this game great is atmosphere and Rapture, which is interesting place to explore. If you miss System Shock or can't wait for the remake, you should pick this up, it will calm your appetite for a while.

Go for it while you can!

TL;DR: Bioshock is a great game, if you haven't played it you should. The gameplay is fun with first person gunfights and a hacking minigame that goes from easy to insane as you play the game. One problem I did have was that I could not figure out how to turn off the tutorial hints. The visuals were nice, I really don't see why they needed to push out a remaster. Actually the faces of the characters (I.E. the little sisters) looked really creepy and sometimes inhuman. The sound was good except it randomly stopped working and I had to enable some sound driver in my sound devices. The story was remarkable and if you have not played the game: BUY IT NOW AND PLAY IT! I do recommend Bioshock, I loved the boss battle at the end it was very satisfying and one of the very best I have ever played. It takes 12 to 16 hours to beat the game. I rate it a 9/10.

Not bad at all

I had a lot of fun playing this game.Genuinely absorbing storytelling, hugely creepy atmosphere, scary and interesting enemies, great weapons, Bioshock is just one of those games where everything came together perfectly.

Bienvenido a Rapture

Bioshock es un titulo con tal profundidad que, desde el inicio te hace ver y entender que tan sombr?a es la vida en Rapture, o al menos lo que queda en esta ciudad sumergida. La historia es atrapante desde el principio, el misterio que rodea la ciudad, a sus alguna vez habitantes y a las personas que solo se comunican contigo por el radio, solo te hace querer saber mas, tambi?n los Big Dadys son "enemigos" ?nicos, los cuales a pesar de ser los enemigos con el aspecto menos humano, son los que mas lastima dan al acabar con ellos. El juego que a pesar de contar con una forma de juego simple, pues es un FPS que no necesita mucho para ser entendido, trata de dar un paso mas al frente con la introducci?n de mec?nicas que enriquecen el juego, como los plasmidos, por que, ?quien no imagino alguna vez mover cosas con la mente, o incinerar a tus enemigos con un chasquido de dedos?; la mejora de las armas, que se har? seg?n el jugador lo desee, o el uso de la c?mara, para que conozcamos los puntos d?biles de cada enemigo, y as? acertar golpes mas devastadores a estos, y en Rapture, necesitaras todo esto para sobrevivir. Bioshock es un juego ?nico, y a pesar de sus errores en la jugabilidad, es muy recomendable para todo jugador que busque pasar el rato con una historia y personajes entra?ables.


Bioshock is the best game. It's that simple. Its absence of multiplayer can not muddy the one that is one of the most frightening and at the same time captivating experiences that can be experienced right now. An innovative, fun, exciting and technologically advanced game that involves a new approach to the ceiling of the highest day vault of the art of video games.
