Bioshock (Xbox 360)
Advantages: Great story, enjoyable and hugely original gameplay, fantastic graphics.
Disadvantages: Not the action packed Call of Duty type shooter people have come to expect on Xbox. More subtle.
Two years ago to the day, this game was released on Xbox 360 consoles in the UK. I played this game for the first time last week, and can honestly say that even in the two years that have passed since its release, there have been very few other games to challenge its enveloping atmosphere and gripping story, not to mention still-impressive visuals and tight shooting mechanics.
The game take place in an underwater city called Rapture - the brainchild of Andrew Ryan, a mysterious character introduced early on in the game. The player is thrust into the intriguing world of Rapture from the outset, and as the game progresses uncovers the mystery behind this underwater dystopia.
Despite the groundbreaking graphics and visual effects, and well tuned shooting action and gameplay, the story really does take centre stage in this game. The narrative is unlike any other game I have played, and is presented in such a way that the player is free to choose how much of it they would like to uncover, without it being force-fed down their throats.
Undoubtedly one of the best and most original games available on any console, with a sequel release just around the corner I highly recommend that you finish this game to avoid missing out on one of the best single player experiences available on Xbox.
Summary: Highly original engrossing single player game.
