Product Details
Description
After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn.

BioShock | Playstation 3
4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Mar 19, 2010

BioShock is a first-person shooter that is the spiritual successor to the cult classic game System Shock. BioShock takes a more thoughtful approach to the genre as opposed to traditional run and gun gameplay. The three standout features that the developers strive for are with the setting and storyline, the open natured gameplay, and the advanced artificial intelligence. The game takes place in an underwater city named Rapture. Surviving a plane crash at the beginning of the game you find your way to this lost city, a decrepit and crumbling shadow of its former self. The ocean is reclaiming the space, and the inhabitants have turned into bloodthirsty mutants. During the course of the game you uncover how Rapture fell from its grace of a 1940s Utopian dream to the current nightmare. Minimal use of cutscenes are used as information is spread around the environment itself in newspapers, posters, and radio ... PROS: (1) Fantastic audio design (2) Compelling plot and setting (3) Quality voice acting (4) Seemless integration of story and gameplay (5) Satisfying combat ... CONS: (1) Death/revive system can the make game too easy (2) No multiplayer mode (3) often hard to hear transmissions and diaries over environmental noise (on default settings) (4) hacking is more like plumbing - albeit still fun (5) Not much replay value after story ends
