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

          That ending really twisted my nutsack 11/10 fr
          «Blew my mind»
          You have to play this, but play the remaster.
          Best Game
          «Beaten more than once»
          Objectivism is another desire to understand the world around us with our minds.

          Another idea to create a utopia, but this time away from people and in an exotic place. All such ideas descend into etatism and totalitarianism. Especially if it is a backwater city, from which it is not as easy to escape as it is to enter.

          This bright idea based on a libertarian model of society has fallen because of an insane leader and one smuggler. The struggle for power and self-interest led to the collapse of society.

          Overall the game is very deep (I don't mean ocean), and brings out a lot of philosophical ideas. And of course the steampunk stylistics combined with the 50's era are just awesome to look at.
          «Blew my mind»
          Overall: 8/10
          Gameplay: 8/10 (Would have been 9.5/10 at the time it came out, but has since aged out of its prime and the later games in the series do the same mechanics but better.)
          Story: 8/10
          Music: 9/10

          More detailed review to come. (WIP)

          BioShock PC - Finished on 08/15/2020
          You can't play this game, and say it could've been better. Nothing will top this game, it'll go down in history as the best of all time in all aspects. It's perfect
          «Blew my mind»
          An immersive sim that just happens to be a great FPS. The environmental storytelling alone in this game makes it worth your time, but the interesting gameplay elements and encounter design really elevate it to another level. The sole problem with this game are the NPC character models, which are just unintentionally frightening. A game I wish I could forget so I could replay it with a fresh mind.
