Insanity

This is one of the best games that I have played in a long, long time. The graphics are fluid and gorgeous and the whole 1960's theme is great. I was captivated from the opening sequence. The game isn't overloaded with long, drawn out movie sequences and the storyline is phenomenal. I can't put the controller down. Make sure you play with the lights out because I haven't seen or heard creepier and more disturbing images and sounds since Resident Evil on Game Cube and Doom 3 on XBOX. If you're a fan of horror, puzzle solving and FPS, then you won't be able to stay away from this title. This is game is completely insane!! I love it!

A jewel of a game with a dramatic feel

This game is one of the best I have played right off the bat. Bioshock is so dynamic in eery aspect of the word. You see everything do their own thing. Enimies attack you together at you or you could make them attck each other which is a very cool aspect. Then the game is EERIE you WILL get scared because these guys you fight are butt ugly and revolting but the game has comic humor because you can whack people wiht a wrench which is cool. Plus, the storline is GREAT you experience events that make you unsure of who you should side with and also events that would leave you not knowing which is the right (or wrong if you roll like that) thing to do is. Alos, there are suprising events around EVERY corner of the story.

I'm mostly talking about the little sisters. You have tog et to them by killing the big daddies which is no easy feat I must say, but they are o-so satisfying to kill, doing what they did in the trailers is really cool and getting up close with a shotgun is cool backgrounvoice that aids you wants you to kill him to get as powerful as fast as you can to save his family and tries to convince you by saying they are no longer children but genetic freaks, but then when you meet the creator of the little sisters se says to release them from they're torment with a sort of plasmid she gives you. If you kill them they are dragged offscreen where the are killed of course (you don't see how they are killed though cause who wants child abuse in a game?) But if you want to save the little sisters a little cinimatic thing occurs with some holy music in the background which can be only described as a priest purifying someone's soul in terms that I would describe it by. Then there asre so many custumizations you adjust teh game to your fighting style, such as choosing which guns you want to upgrade the most or getting the most powerful plasmids (the powers that you have while playing in the city of Rapture)

In short BUY, don't rent, this game if you can!!!

The game is gorgeous, controls are intuitive, and it is actually very fun. So many games have minor design flaws and I haven't run in to any yet.

My only gripe is lack of co-op or multiplayer, I assume that will be in Bioshock 2 :)
