A game with a great story and atmosphere. Graphics do not look too shabby, however some animations for the enemies are a little wonky and weird. The gunplay gets more intuitive the more you play as you can upgrade your weapon to get new abilities and certain ammo types are stronger against certain enemies. The enemies themselves attack you in certain patterns that you have to learn to counter and it is a fun game. There is also a nice level progression system which rewards you for playing the game more by giving you upgrade, making your character stronger and better and u also get a lot of plasmids which are all pretty cool. The atmosphere is also really good. This game takes place in an underwater city called Rapture tring to create a utopian country, however it failed and the game really captures the dystopian underwater society really well. However, the biggest strong point of Bioshock is the story, which I believe to be absolutely fantastic. It all depends on the choices you make while playing and you can either get a good ending or a bad ending depending on the choices, which I thought was pretty cool. There are also a lot of plot twists and some times an npc says something that tears down the barriers of reality for you and opens up your mind to something new. In conclusion, I believe Bioshock is an amazing game and any gamer who hasn't tried this game yet should definetely get their hands on it.
I have to say, I was plesently surprised by this. Never thought I would enjoy a game like this so much.
However, it did have it's downsides.
Pros: + Mechanics are easy to learn + Hard/hardcore makes the game much more challenging and makes sure to let you know that every bullet, medkit, and every little bit of EVE counts. Very fun for those who want a challenge. Otherwise, go for normal or easy. + Guns/weapons are pretty straight forward + Wrench + Plenty of plasmids to make a creative kit during your playthrough + Voice acting is quite well done. It sets the mood very well. + Music makes the player stay on edge (At least for me. I scare a bit easily :c).
Cons: - Not much of a story. The plot is a bit too straight forward. HOWEVER, the plot twists are very nice c: - Splicers - Can't have more than 1 wrench - Adam is limited. - More Splicers - Big Daddies don't hit hard enough - F**KING SPLICERS
Finished the game murdering every damn Splicer I see/hear.
But over all, this game is very enjoyable. Especially as a new player to this game. I only wish that there was a bit more of a story to this game. But other than that, I give this game a 8/10
