Definitely Game-of-the-Year Worthy

Basically, Halo 3 needs to be perfect in order to beat Bioshock for game of the year in my opinion. This game was a rent only until I played the demo. After that, it was a must buy. I must say that it didn't disappoint. I was enthralled by the very original story and gorgeous environment. Even as I write this, I want to get back to playing the game. If you're a sci-fi fan or a first person shooter fan, then this is a MUST PLAY!

The Perfect Horror Shooter

To start this game is of the highest quality of shooter.Only once will this type of game come out.In a decade this is the best shooter I've seen.Bioshock exploits the Unreal Engine.The Idea of the game is your on a rescue mission into the depts of Rapture.Rapture besidses Tartarus from Persona 3 is the best setting for a game ever.These "Splicers" are frightening and intelligent.The"Plasmids" you obtain in the game are instant genetic modifiers. They allow you to use powers such as:Electro Schock,Incinerate,and Telekinisis.The "Big Daddys",and"Little Sisters" are the scariest duo since Michael Jackson,and Prince.The Big Daddys are the hardest enemies ever They know every inch of Rapture ,and how to exploit it.The ending has a great twist,and the Good and Evil system reminds me of Oblivion.I can't reccomend this title anymore as a gamer.

The Under Water City of Bioshock

From the very beginning of the game you will realize the visual effects of this game. The water is like diamonds. The surroundings in this game are visual stunning. You'll will feel like you live in this game by the time your done.

The Game starts as you crashing from a plane in the ocean, where you arrive at a tower. In that tower you are taken to the UnderWater city of Rapture. Where there are no restrictions and you own the city from working as hard as you can. You realize though that this freedom comes at a cost. The inhabitants of rapture take freedom to a new level and with the invention of plasmids and Adom, they become in-human monster plaguing Rapture.

Adom is the life source of Rapture, it keeps Rapture running at capacity, and is the natural drug of every Splicer (The humans changed by adom.) From adom, it has genetically enhanced them.
It's is also the thing that will genetically enhance you so that you can fight at the same playing level as the splicers. Adom, is collected by Little Sisters, little girls infused with parasites that control them to collect the adom. Now you can easily kill a little sister, or can save her by removing the parasite and destroying it, Either way you get adom, but your choice decides the fate of the game. Now the little sisters are venerable, but they have a companion by their side. A Big Daddy. They are scuba suit wearing monsters that protect little sisters. As long as you don't attack them, they'll leave you alone. With adom, you can enhance abilities. To hack, which lets you make a turret or a flying bot into your friend, or lets you get a cheaper price at the vendor. Also increase your physical being making you into a weapon, or to enhance your weapons and plasmids.
Plasmids are the magic in this game, giving you many different options to defeat enemies. The game brings a great feel to original weapons, and every encounter with an enemy will leave you with a new strategy to kill them.
This game is a must have!
