Background

After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn.

Gameplay

Bioshock is a first-person shooter, but not in the traditional sense. Like its spiritual predecessor, System Shock 2, Bioshock allows the player to implement different powers, known as Plasmids, in order to defeat their foes and manipulate the environment in a variety of ways. Another element of the game that differs from other shooters is the Tonic system. Tonics are enhancements to your character that are in effect as soon as they are equipped. Some effects of Tonics can include things such as increased defense against enemy attacks as well as allowing you to reap more benefits from hacking vending machines and the like.

Features

  • Biologically mod your body with plasmids: genetic augmentations that empower you with dozens of fantastic abilities. Send Electrobolts storming from your fingertips, unleash a swarm of hornets hatched from the veins of your arms, strategically turn enemies against one another with irritants.
  • Take control of your world by hacking devices and systems: reprogram enemy security bots into personal bodyguards, modify vending machines to change prices, and transform machine gun security turrets into powerless pieces of metal.
  • Upgrade your weapons at Fire-For-Effect stations located through Rapture. Craft variants of ammo and plasmids by picking up materials in the city to modify them at U-Invent kiosks.
  • Experiment with different battle techniques with BioShock’s free form combat options: gameplay scenarios can be approached with a variety of weapons, active and passive plasmids, environmental objects utilization, exploitation of political alliances, or a combination of techniques. Find your style but know when to adapt.
  • Explore an incredible and unique art deco world hidden deep under the ocean, vividly illustrated with realistic water effects and truly next generation graphics.
