Going beyond "run and gun corridors," "monster-closet AIs" and static worlds, BioShock creates a living, unique and unpredictable FPS experience. After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival. Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment. Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities. Explore a living world powered by Ecological A.I., where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience. Experience truly next generation graphics that vividly illustrate the forlorn art deco city, highlighted by the most detailed and realistic water effects ever developed in a video game. Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture…or save them? [2K Games]

I have reviewed this game.80Asons43
A well-made FPS game with a fantastic story. An experience of around 10 hours leaves a lasting impression as if it were 100 hours.90fnenamg
I played it when it was released, and it was just amazing. I had a lot of fun with this one.90VLG
Taken as a whole, as an experience that’s richly and utterly complete, and one that engages the player in a constant dialogue, BioShock is virtually unassailable. And that makes you feel good.1001UP
Brilliant storyline, along with great gameplay and great graphics at the time make a perfect game.100NyeKemball
An unparalleled achievement. No other game comes even remotely close to it in terms of raw emotional connection.100GameSpy
An artwork, its gameplay is a 9/10, the story is a 10/10, the atmosphere, the enemies, the music, everything. Bioshock is art, that’s all.100luisda021298
