BioShock is a first-person shooter video game developed by 2K Australia and 2K Boston and published by 2K Games 2007-08-21 for PlayStation 3, Windows, and XBox 360, and later for Macintosh. The player controls a character whose plane crashes outside the entrance of an underwater Libertarian society that has devolved into chaos. The player is in constant radio communication with a man named Atlas who offers to guide him through the dangerous city safely if he'll only help him and his family escape to the surface.

I own BioShock and BioShock: Remastered on Steam, but I haven't beaten it.

Review

Good

  • The game has fantastic atmosphere. Knowing that you're stuck in underwater city that is slowly falling apart around you, knowing that at any minute it could all collapse around you, makes it very claustrophobic.
  • The 50's art deco style of the architecture, the graphic design, and the cartoon work is all really lovely.
  • The game's audio perfectly fits the mood. There is a great score for various planned events, and the 50's style music adds to the creepiness of the game.
  • The design of the enemies is pretty good. The splicers are nice an terrifying, but the game really shines with the Big Daddies and Little Sisters.

Bad

  • The game is too scary for my tastes, and all the jump scares forced me to save scum all the time, which slowed do the game.
  • While I thought it was a neat idea, I actually don't care much for being able to "hack" into vending machines and safes. It kind of slows down the pacing of the game.
  • It seemed like enemies frequently spawned out of thin air, like I would clear an area with closed-off exits, but then, later on, more enemies would be in the area. By not playing by its own rules, this injured the game experience for me.
