If you haven't played Bioshock on the 360 or a PC, this port is definitely worth your time for the story alone. If you've been lucky enough to avoid spoilers for over a year, the atmosphere and story will draw you in unlike any other FPS game in recent memory. The graphics are great, the framerate is consistent, with a minor drop of two here, and the game plays as great as it did on the other systems. Don't miss an opportunity to enjoy a great game!
Oh, and it's more of a rental than a $60 purchase, but that's why you have Gamefly too, right?
I'm not a big fan of first person shooters; the balls to the wall, constant mayhem actually bores me to tears. So why do I love this game? Suspense. The lighting and acoustics in this game are genius. The people of Rapture are terrifying; you can see their shadows on the walls lurking around corners, hear them dragging their pipes on the tile. You might not want to play this game right before bed.
The only problem I have with this game - the "big daddies", whom protect the "little sisters", are way to tough to kill...I mean you have to use all of your ammo just to kill one...and I didn't love the controls...
I heard a lot of hype about this game before even playing it and I must admit this game lived up to the hype and more. This is one of the most interesting and stylish FPS games I have ever played. The art style and coloring is amazing, unlike any other shooter. The story and premise is very interesting.(an underwater utopia free from the trappings of the modern world). The controls are very smooth. The weapon selection is excellent. Plasmids are something truly original to this game. Plasmids modify your DNA so you can shoot fire, ice or any of the other various plasmids straight from your body. You can save at any point by simply accessing the pause menu. The music of this game is very nostalgic and fits the overall theme perfectly. The graphics are very good as well especially the last boss fight. Overall, If you are a Fan of FPS shooters definitely check this game out. If FPS games are usually not your thing check this game out as well. Bioshock is One of those few games that I can say just blew me away. A definite must rent
