BioShock is a revolution in the shooter genre that will forever change the expectations for the FPS. Going beyond "run and gun corridors," "monster-closet AIs" and static worlds, BioShock creates a living, unique and unpredictable FPS experience. BioShock is the Shooter 2.0.

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.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.
  • Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival.
  • Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment.
  • Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities.
  • Explore a living world powered by Ecological A.I., where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience.
  • Experience truly next generation graphics that vividly illustrate the forlorn art deco city, highlighted by the most detailed and realistic water effects ever developed in a video game.
  • Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture... or save them?

 Excellent continuation of BioShock 1

| | See all mindovermatter's reviews (3)

Not imperative to have played BioShock 1 to enjoy BioShock 2, but if you had played BioShock 1, then this is an excellent continuation of the game. Minor glitches exists in the game (movement gets stuck / sounds missing in the game and flickering on the plasmid selection menu. (these are documented bugs) Hopefully to be fixed soon. Requires a Games for Windows Live account - had some problems with my firewall blocking the updates, so check for that.

Some of the objects in the game are a bit low in structural quality ('octagonal' light bulbs, for instance) but the rest is what you come to expect from any modern game.

The game developers did away with the weapon selection screen (which also pauses the game) This makes it more difficult to quickly choose a new weapon AND ammo type on the fly (as you can in BioShock 1). Best is to prep and reload all the weapons in your arsenal before a fight, as to quickly switch between them during a fight.

Runs 1980X1080 (HD) on Windows 7 (64 bit) with no problems (apart from the documented bugs)

Maps are considerably larger than BioShock 1. I'd suggest to look around online for a walk-though that shows the floor maps. It's easy to miss a plasmid if you haven't explored certain sections of the vast map of each level.

All and all a very enjoyable (and pretty) game. I'd recommend it to any FPS fan.

 Great Game but have some problem with Windows 7

The game is one of the most important and beautiful game in history, and looks great for sound and graphic but with windows 7 (and probably ATI) have some problem, and it need to be fix with specifically settings
