When i first put on this game i thought to myself there is no way i will enjoy or continue playing this strange game. However it soon becomes apparant this is not any ordinary game. It is genuinely a game like no other. Very original unique story and gameplay. The weapons & opponents are such such fun. I have just bought Bioshock 2 and cannot wait to play it!

Let me start by saying that this is a lot of game for 9.99.
It will keep you entertained and occupied for a good couple of weeks, if not more.
The story is very gripping, and is a fresh take on the survival horror genre. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Dead Space or Resident Evil.
The graphics were absolutely astounding when the game was released on Xbox in 2007, and even by today's standards they are pretty good.
The gameplay is relatively fresh, but at times the combat can get a bit tedious and difficult.
All in all though, this game is very good, worthy of every good review it received and a bargain at only a tenner, buy it now!

  one of the greatest games ever made!

i had this on xbox 360 and finished it like 3 or 4 times on various difficultys and lvoe the game so much so have rebought for ps3 as my xbox was sold and the ps3 version has more to offer with the DLC challenge maps and game + should be interesting.
i think this is way better than the sequel which i found ok but more of the same but more repetitveand much less interesting story and a silly multiplayer online lol
BIOSHOCK will never be touched and was easily game of 2007 :)

Fabulous game, great gameplay, great story (especially considering it was made a few years ago), with a very emotional ending. Unmissable!

  A Modern Masterpiece in Story and Gaming

Bioshock, This game satisfies the senses on all levels. The graphics are superb and really draw out and highlight the horrific elements of the Rapture environment.

The sound design is flawless, the twisted moaning of splicers as they roam the endless hallways right down to sound of fish swirling outside.

Story, This is a story that really delivers a strong impact and draws you into playing over and over again just to see the fantastic amount of jaw dropping scenes that even films cannot produce.

Value? Well the value for this game is awesome, especially now at its lowest price, the game will last you a long time and the amount of plasmids and tonics availible will give you a reason to return to rapture. And if you can afford to spend some cash you can purchase the challenge rooms pack, 3 new challenges that can be done your own way and show you new scenes you havent... seen before, and with the added use of a special new game option you can replay the game starting with what your character had after you finished the first time. Beautiful. I will sum up now...

Graphics: 9/10
Sound: 8/10
Gameplay:8/10
Story: 10/10

Overall Score: 9/10

B-E-A-utiful.

  A MASTERPIECE IN GAMING

| | See all PATCHES1989's reviews (518)

Of course my favourite FPS are the COD games but this game is one of the most brilliantly made games i have seen in a while. In a nice old age setting in an underwater city to will go through many tests of your gaming ability and this game quite rightly won GOTY a few years back. Brilliantly graphiced and the gameplay is phenomenal. Enjoy

  A Masterpiece

'Bioshock' is on the receiving end of bucket loads of compliments, causing unbelievable hype, and guess what? It deserves all the praise it gets.

'Bioshock' is a beautiful FPS that is reminiscent of 'Doom' and other classic Survival Horror games; yet it lacks stereotypes and comes into it's own entirely.

Sporting a fantastic story, great characters and development, plus tons of epic weapons, plasmids and power-ups.

It is also a frightening and immersive experience; like fine Horror cinema' the game holds you tightly and refuses to let you go.
The city of Rapture is a utopia of dreams, but it's laced with morbid and disgusting scars that become apparent during progression of gameplay.

It's an amazing game; one of the best for PS3, and even though it's a little old now, this game still shines above the competition.
Buy it while it's cheap and prepare for 'Bioshock 2'
