This is the first Bioshock I have played. It is First Person, no alt views, shooter. It has the golden path like Fable 3. Its unique in 3 ways:
1. No inventory-You will have a weapons layout like Assassin's Creed, with the ability to hold 2 guns at a time and learn 8 abilities. You will pickup "salt" for magic to fuel abilities and Food for health. The catch is, there is rotten food and other things that are bad for your health. Also, you can't pick and choose. If you loot a guy with cigarettes and salt, you will loose health but gain salt or magic.
2. Companion: Your companion takes care of you and her. If your out of something in a battle, she will find some and toss it to you.
3. The 'Rail' System: You will use a magnetic hook to leap from Point to point, as a melee weapon, (very gruesome), and to ride suspended rails. (which you slide along and shoot from)
I enjoyed this game but didn't have time to finish it. The art and music are awesome and the point system is like Fall out: new Vegas. Refreshing First Person Shooter. The South Won i think and they Idolize President Lincoln's assassin: Booth.
as a fan of the entire series it felt refreshing to play this through. the games story does have similarities to bioshock 2 but just like a good magic trick a great story cant be told well unless it is delivered to the audience in a clever way like this game managed to do and will do in the many repeat playthroughs.
pc play is definitely worth it to get the graphics to look as good as they can.
Ok, so I've never played a Bioshock game before but i played this one.
All in all its a great game. The ending is very dramatic, im not gonna blow it for ya, Hard to keep up with as far as the story line goes towards the end. The weapons are ok could of been better IMO. The Perks or Salts whatever you want to call them are awesome. The game itself was very short i beat it in 2 days about 8 hours of play time although i did no side missions. Great game sometimes difficult...After you beat the game you unlock a "1999 mode" which is supposedly for only the best of the best gamers. Would of gave a 10 but story was short and a little confusing.
