I’m sure most people have at least heard of Bioshock in the gaming community, but I’m going to explain it anyway. Bioshock brings you into the world of Rapture, a dystopian underwater city you must fight through with the help of Atlas, a man on your radio. Bioshocks main difference with other shooters (other than it’s superb story, more on that later) is that it lets you gain abilities through genetically altering plasmids. These plasmids can range from shooting bees out of your hands, to using telekinesis to cripple your enemies with any loose debris you can find. As well as plasmids, you also have your typical guns you would find in any shooter, a shotgun, a grenade/rocket launcher and others. The story is perfect, you feel like you understand everything, that the whole game can be predicted from the very start, but Bioshock isn’t like that. It makes you think you outsmarted it, and then it shows you that you were wrong the whole time. Aside from that, the story is still superb, you empathise with the characters at every point of the way and the audio tapes found around Rapture give you useful information to help you progress, as well as some background information on the world. I hope you enjoy Rapture as much as I did.
My Rating – 10/10
