Advantages: Amazing atmosphere. Good graphics. Great story
Disadvantages: Perhaps too scary for some kids.
Bioshock is one of my favourite ever games & I really can't wait for Bioshock 2 which should be out soon!
The game is set in the 60's in a underwater city called Rapture. Rapture is a city where there are no boundaries for the creative genius and the lack of boundaries is the main reason for its own demise!
You start the game after surviving a plane crash in the middle of the ocean but you are not as far away from civilization as you think! After floating around for a while you find a sub that takes you down to the heart of Rapture and that is where the fun begins! Rapture has gone wild, its inhabitants have gone crazy and they're out to get you! You have to survive!
There are inventions called Plasmids that you find along the way that can help you out. You simply inject the plasmid into your hand and your genetic structure morphs so you can control the elements around you! I think this is such a great addition to what could otherwise be just another shooting game!
The story line of Bioshock is one of the most thought out and well written computer games I've ever played. The atmosphere is truly stunning and I love the way that it seems to have stopped time perfectly in the 1960's.
The Music is so eerie and really sets the mood for the game, and that mood is creepy!
I found that no matter how scared this game made me feel, I never wanted to turn it off! It really captured my imagination and compelled me to find out more about this decaying city.
The characters along the way are so varied, from the psycho genius mad-man to the lady that seems to want to help. You just have to remember that everything is not as it seems in Rapture!
Bioshock is simply a Beautiful game that will creep you out, but no matter how scared you get, you won't want to put it down!
If you like Horror movies and are looking for a game that will give you the same scenes of dread, try Bioshock. The controls feel so natural once you learn them and the graphics really couldn't be any better.
I really recommend this game to anyone who likes 1st-person-shooters. You'll love Bioshock!
Summary: One of my favourite ever games. Must play!
