This game does many things right, but keep in mind that this is not an intense firefight game. This game uses its story to enthrall the player and keep him/her playing the game. The game does have its scare moments, and those moments are the ones you will remember when you are done with the game. Any decision you make will affect the ending one way or the other. There are two endings, but one has two versions. In many ways, this game is amazing, but, in my opinion, it is overhyped. I was expecting more than it gave. The game is pretty linear with branching rooms, but you will end up in the same place every time.
Let me start off by saying that this game a pure fun. The graphics are so unique and draw you in. Thee game play is smooth and also unique. The game gives you a lot of options on how to customize your weapons and perks which allow you to mess with the enemy in funny gruesome ways. The down side of this game is you'll consistently get lost in the open city of Rapture going back and forth through missions with enemies that seem to respond out of no where. All in all, this is a great game and if you like first person shooters i strongly suggest you buy it. if you are new to First person shooters, rent it.
