Bioshock is easily one of the best shooters in the past decade. If you like shooters at all, get this game. The graphics will knock your socks off, and on top of all that eyecandy is one of the best gaming stories in recent memory, all wrapped up in a...

Fantastic graphics, really great story

Copy protection, a few bugs

I do recommend this game for everyone who has the "machine" to play this game. I ran this game on a (939) AMD 3800+ single cpu, 3 GB of memory, Asus A8V motherboard, XP SP2, nvida 7900 AGP 8X 256 MB. But be prepared for hissing and crackling of the...

The graphics: A+, the sounds: A, the environment of the game : A, the plot: A, the game play itself: A

SecuROM, no sounds when it doesn't work at all, number of simultaneous installs...although 2K up this count to 5, sound hissing and crackling at times and I have to close the game and restart it

Overall I find it to be the very best video game I have ever played, going back for 24 years now. It is, however, very demanding in terms of hardware (if you want to run at high resolutions) - much moreso than what's recommended on the box. I had a...

Great story, graphics & play

Among the nVidia cards, only the best will do

I picked up this game for $20 from Best Buy on Black Friday. I finally got around to installing it a few weeks ago. At first, the game was unimpressive to me, then I quickly got into the story and the location. Rapture looks just as you would expect it...

Very unique story and gameplay features (Plasmids, tonics). Extremely free-form gameplay (in the ways you can kill enemies)

Big Daddy's are sometimes a bit too tough, too little money and ADAM at times

Love this game! Running it with all settings maxed using 2GB RAM, C2D e6750 & 256MB X1950XT @ 1600x1200 resolution. Smooth as silk gameplay. The graphics are awesome, the environment is fantastic, and the storyline brings it all together. You owe it to...

This game has one of the most memorable opening scenes. And, by adding a new layer of genetic weapons, the action level is just as impressive. One minor drawback, is the lack of change in the environment. It does not vary enough with the term of the...

Story line. Graphics are great.adding much more depth to the shooter arena with a 2nd layer of genetic weapons to fight the enemies

Environment does not vary enough --i.e. underwater city, yet you never go in to the water.The tactical implementation of weapons can get a touch complicated

When you get down to it, Bioshock is basically a pure shooter. Bioshock attempts to differentiate itself from other shooters by giving the player the ability to customize himself with a variety of Plasmids (basically special abilities). While the...

Intriguing story. Good atmosphere

Gameplay isn't anything new

You need a high end graphics card to really enjoy the game as it has a lot of details that just make it creepy. The plot line is pretty good as well. There is pretty much no death penalty so if that bothers you then this game may not be for you. If you...

Looks great and sounds great

AI could have been smarter

I was rather excited about this game, being a big fan of System Shock 2. Bioshock is supposedly the "spiritual successor" to SS2. Well, it does inherit certain aspects of SS2: story being told through logs and diaries left behind, RPG-like skill...

Fun and balanced gameplay

Not for fans of System Shock 2. Poorly stated hardware requirements
