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?

 demo version

| | See all R1uprising's reviews (36)

If you are part of the playstation network, download the demo from the playstation store, for free. I have pre-ordered my copy from Play after playing it. I know Bioshock was big on the PC, but didn't really know much about it. It is visually stunning, darkly atmospheric, inventive and very interesting. It is a good twist on the first person genre, and i'm looking forward to playing the full game (..middle of the night, lights out!!)

 played the demo - what a game

Although Bioshock may have been around for a while on other consoles, I do think this is a cracking game. It's all about the ambiance, turn the lights out, crank up the volume and away you go. I shall definitely be purchasing the full game and I'm looking forward to playing through it now the nights are drawing in.

 very inventive

Have played the demo for this after downloading it from the playstation store and was very impressed.
Now without trying to confuse people and sound contradictory, the game contains a lot of elements from other games, but carried off as tho they are original ideas.
The ability to carry weapons in one hand while injecting a 'plasma?' into the other arm to produce lightning bolts or fire etc is quite clever in the way that you use one button each to flick thru your various wepons and one button each to fire.
The rest of the button controls are basic also but effective to the playing of the game.
The visuals are very attractive and shows that the ps3 is developing nicely towards its potential.
The gameplay seems to be a cross between solving puzzles (like when reprogramming various machines for your own benefit) and action (shooting, self defence etc).
The game also seems quite grusome, so the 18 rating is understandable, if maybe three years over the top. Having not seen the finished game tho, 18 may be appropriate.
If you have a ps3 and are registered on the store then it is worth downloading and trying because this is a lovely gem of a game and should sell vqey well on release.
I don't know if it will have online capability, but the possibilities could be endless with people meeting each other in various locations in the game as they play it.
This would add to the endless variaty that the developers have already promised. No two plays are the same they reckon so playability and longevity should make it value for money.

From what i've seen, this game promises to be awesome

 Messed Up

| | See all R1ncew1nd16's reviews (3)

First of all, well done Play, ordered this two days ago (a Sunday) and got it this morning.
Anyway, this game is just freakin' crazy. Whoever came up with this stuff needs to get themselves checked out mentally. I've played for about two hours so far so I'm still right at the beginning but already I've seen some seriously wacky stuff. If you're easily scared/freaked out don't get this.
Apart from that the gameplay is fairly standard, but it can a take while to get used to the swapping between weapons and plasmids, and there's the fact that circle heals and square reloads, which confused me a few times.
Not the greatest FPS in terms of gameplay (CoD4 will probably still hold that title for a while) but the whole things is so messed up, it just really works!
