About

FPS with RPG elements, Bioshock invites players to experience horrors of underwater isolation in the city of Rapture, the failed project of the better future. After surviving the plane crash, the protagonist has only one way to go – to the giant lighthouse that opens a way to the underwater utopia. Players will have to unravel the complicated history of Rapture, relying only on themselves, their guns and Plasmids, a mystical substance, that allows it’s user to obtain near magical abilities.
The atmosphere of isolation and threat is conveyed through the environmental sounds, subtle electrical buzzing and audio logs, telling the story of societal decay and despair. Players will shape the story, making moral choices along their way, saving Little Sisters or extracting ADAM, the mystical fuel for your abilities. While exploring the underwater city, players will complete missions for the last sane inhabitants of Rapture, while fending off the less fortunate ones.

          BioShock reviews and comments

          Highly recommended
          «That ending!»
          First time playing through and it was just as good as everyone said it was going to be. The gameplay is fun and engaging, but my only complaint would be that at times it felt a little dated. It covers a lot of bases and it juggles all these different mechanics and accommodates for different play styles. In a lesser game that would be a problem, but Bioshock manages to execute this extremely well. But by today's standards I've like played good shooters that have managed to have better roleplaying elements or more tense and claustrophobic horror sections. So my experience as the player ended up feeling kind of middle of the road. I was never as scared as I wanted to be or as hyped for gun combat as I've been in other games. But Bioshock is still great and I would recommend to anyone who hasn't played it yet.

          BioShock: Nostalgia meets Horror and the Mileage below the Ocean's Surface in a rundown 60S city. A Setting can't be more abstract, can it be? But then why is it so Popular? Ebend DARUM! In Bioshok you play Jack who Tumps into the Atlantic on a Plane and is the only Survivor to save himself to a Lighthouse, which takes him through an Elevator to the Underwater City of Rapture. Once There, a Cat and Mouse game for Life and Death begins. The gripping story in whose Point of Conflict is always the Question of what is true and how free is one in his Decisions in life. In the End, was I just been duped and a Slave without free Will? Bioshok is a Single-player First-person shooter set in a Cyberpunk universe with many religious Aspects and superhuman Powers. The Setting Of the Game has succeeded very well and the Atmosphere is Atmospheric in every respect. Although the Game occasionally gives us some Choices, the Game is relatively Linear, but always questions human Morality and ethical Decisions. In The beginning, the Game scores with Horror Factor, while in the End it gets more and more profound and sets the Horror back a bit. Mann butchers his way through the individual boroughs with a manageable but versatile, number of Weapons and Powers on the way to Ryan the Owner and Herscher of Rapture. Three different Ends, along with liquid Control, offer fun and Replay Value. BioShock gets from me the following Rating: (5 Star system) Graphic: ★ ★ ★ (see (interface very successful graphics but Something to circus-like) Sound: ★ ★ ★ ★ (Completely setting) Features: ★ ★ ★ (Features and Level Design to Linear but Voiced) Control: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Gamomad Control recommended!) Fun: ★ ★ ★ ★ (Lasts for one to Two game rounds feast!) Mood: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Incredibly good captured charm in the style of Al Capone/Noir movies of the 40gs-60s) Total: 81% (-1% for the crude Start and the subsidence of Horror) Private Fait: A Solide Game that hasn't kept me on the Pole forever, but a Game I Probably unpack again every few Years to see maybe the Last End. Although I often have a Clue in which Direction a Game is developing, the Mind ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ towards the End when meeting Ryan was also Violent for Me this time. That'S why I will always remember Bioshok as a Game that inspired me to think about the one in The Game 3 days at a time. While most Fans are Of the Opinion that the BioShok Infinite Ending that Brain ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ending was bad for me, for me this One was far too predictable and Bioshok 1 will always have in my opinion the remembered "End" (This is not the direct End but the End of R yan). Recommended for Fans of the following Games: Film Noire Lover Storygamer and Core Gamer Single-palyer Sellepalyer Ego-shooter fans of Superheldencomics Mind ♥ ♥ Enthusiasts and Interpreters Not recommended for: High Graphic Fans of Modding Games Multiplayer Fans Gamers with Blunt humor rather uneducated Players (Although these can also Play it, man misses a Bunch of Subtext)

          get the remastered version
          One of the best settings. One of the best atmospheres in video games and one of the best OST. No need for more words...

          «Time-tested»
          Well, I know that everybody loves this game but it seems overrated for me. Too many useless weapons and repetitive mechanics. And what do you need a crossbow for? It seems that I just don’t get this game. It’s too focused of technics for me, I guess.  
          Don’t wait if you haven’t played this game yet! A very enjoyable gameplay, an incredible setting, a unique story and wonderful visuals. You’ll love the characters and will really empathize them. The combat system here is never boring, with multiple weapons and fighting skills. Though the game is 10 years old now, it’s still and awesome title.  
          Would you kindly just play this game and take the general public's word about how great this game/series is?
