BioShock review
by StevenFortney

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.

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.

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)
