Welcome to Rapture, enjoy your stay

Summary:



July 2014. It was back then then I decided that Bioshock was one of those big name games that I simply must try, and yet even then it's taken me until 2016 to actually play the thing. It's a shame I didn't get around to it earlier. It has a couple of annoyances, but it's proved to be a lot of fun that has boosted my interest in playing further into the series.

I found myself taken in by the world of Rapture, which the game seems to make a point of showcasing with your first visit by sphere. You can get a good look at the external visage of the city, showing that while something's still ticki...

Bioshock a mix of RPG, Survival horror and Action in one package

The good:

  • Interesting story
  • rewards for rescuing little sisters.
  • Encouragement to save EVE to be able to use plasmids.

The bad:

  • Splicer swarms can mean a quick death.
  • Lack in some cases of an obvious path.
  • Bad illumination means you are able to fall on trap with ease.

Summary:

Bioshock one of the many games in the market that can wield proudly the title of Love it or Hate it for many reasons, be it it's story, controls, characters, it's a real base breaker.

The game is an interesting experience mixing First person shooter with elements with RPG , action and horror elements, i affirm this because of how the gameplay operates, Raputre is a massive city, you are able to explore a good chunk of it while you try to reach your objective but it instills a sense of paranoia as you never know when a splicer will try to kill you, not only that but you might also never know ...

9.0

Bioshock is a stand alone game, a gem for games of it's time.

The good:

A shooter friendly game to begin with, a seasoned shooter will fit well into the game, as well as a beginner new to First Person Shooters.

Excellent graphics, a large arsenal weapons and useful plasmids, and a wide range of enemies waiting to bring you to your end. Couldn't ask for more in a game like this.

The bad:

Apart from the occasional glitch, and I do mean occasional, there isn't much you could take from this game. In fact there isn't any other qualms I have with Bioshock.

Summary:

If you are looking for a game to get you hooked, and keep you hooked then this is the game for you. Bioshock takes you to Rapture, a city built on the bottom of the ocean. Like living in another world, Rapture has many secrets, many which the residents would rather keep secret. Andrew Ryan, the founder of Rapture, offers a surreal life under the oceans, away from the wars and oppressive leaders above.

Amongst his greatest creation, he also created ADAM, a type of plasma, able to give the user a profound ability to conjure elements to use at your disposal. Imagine setting fire to an oil spill...

System Shock, what have they done to you, buddy?

Summary:

So yeah, this is the fabled Bioshock, the holder of many 8s, 9s and even 10s. Playing through this when it was first released, my thoughts ranged from "what, this is it?" to "*bleep* this is shit", and those still ring true even four years later, because to tell you the truth, this game is terrible. Not in the Action 52/Venetica sense, but more because it's so *bleep*ing bland and boring that it's not even at all worth playing. The problem is that Bioshock has its priorities all mixed up! Whereas other first person shooters don't have much of a story, Bioshock is all about the story. At the...

A Step Back from Rapture

Summary:



BioShock is a game that has received a lot of praise since initial release. It won GOTY from Spike and has constantly scored 9 or higher in reviews. Yet as I played the game there was only one thing I could think of: why? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad game. Conceptually and graphically it’s quite a good game; it’s just how it plays that’s the issue.

One of the things that do carry the game is the plot, which is well thought out and detailed enough to keep your interest. It’s all action from the start as you (Jack) survive a plane crash in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean only to find sa...

Welcome to rapture

The good:

-absolutely incredible storyline
-weapons are realistic and creative
-plasmids are like no other
-great replay value

The bad:

-a few AI problems here and there

Summary:

Ah, I remember the first time I saw the Bioshock Teaser. Now more than two years ago, it showed an absolutely creepy game with all the basics a horror game needed. It had little girls, A huge beast with a drill-screw for a hand, and even some good old fashioned shotgun action. Me being a PS3 owner, I had to wait 3 years instead of 2 for this masterpiece to come out. The game was worth the wait. On October 21, 2008 I was introduced to the exciting world of rapture.

You start out on a mysterious plane, not sure of your destination, when suddenly it crashes out in the middle of the Atlantic. ...
