Bioshock brings me a variety of different feelings while playing.
First, visual amazement. The beauty of the game is extraordinary and compared to some "games" being released now, it just exceeds 10 fold.
Second, Fear. Playing this game in the dark is absolutely brilliant. I cant remember the last game that made me feel about 5 years old hiding under the covers, other than the scary games i was playing when i was 5! The feeling of not know whats going to happen next is chilling but you just cant wait!
Third, Excitement. The sheer joy of beating a big daddy with nothing but a shotgun and some harsh language is tremendous and some of the "genes" are truely awesome to wield.
The gameplay of this thrilling survival treat is almost perfect, its well paced and there are many variations and combinations of weapons to use so youll never be bored with the combat side of things. The detail of the game presentation can be described only as unique because of the random underwater world riddled with mad and mentally deformed civilians trying to find their next fix of "ADAM", the precious substance every resident of the city now craves at terrifying levels. Also the story is presented in such a way that you cant wait to find the next audio tape to hear its superb and occaisionally ridiculously funny recording detailing a minor snippet of the story or a personal experience of some kind.
I cant put this game down and am so glad i found it for £15 in town and i dont think i'll be trading it anytime soon, this should keep me happy until Dead Space comes out next month!
5/5 from me, top shelf material!!
