Rated 10 out of 10 by BroadwayGuy This isn't just a game, its a piece of art
Bioshock isn't just a game, its art. Sadly, most of its players overlook what exactly makes this so amazing, and just see it as a "point-and-shoot" experience. While I understand the appeal to many gamers for fun, Bioshock is an amazingly intellectual experience that challenges your personally morality, the ideas of freedom, scientific boundaries, religion, abortion, genetic mutation, mans'-reach-exceeding-grasp, capitalism, communism, and many, many other philosophies. The game in itself, as a game, is very well made, and very fun, immersive, but like I said, this is not just a game. If you fashion yourself any kind of intellectual, and even if you're a casual gamer, or not even one at all, you should definitely playthrough this game at once. It is an absolutely mind-blowing experience, and you'll appreciate it even more if you're any kind of critic. This is a must-buy, even to non-gamers. It is one of the greatest experiences with art I've come across in my lifetime, and if you think about the game, it'll affect your life.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cellblocker Best Game I Have Ever Played! EVER
I am definitely not one for horror but when i got my hands on this game i just could not stop. This is by far my favorite game of all time. On the ratings i honestly would give this game A 1000 ON STORYLINE INSTEAD OF 10 because it has the most compelling and twisting story. It keeps you thinking and on your toes throughout the entire game, and after you play this game you never look back on it the same way. This game is what no one is expecting. As mentioned in the other review this game is one of the few games that makes you feel like you're really there and makes you question if Rapture (the city) is really there. As you progress further and further into the game it starts to unfold slowly. You get the feeling that this isn't a game. It's a story. It's a miracle. It's a once in a lifetime chance. This game is amazing and always will be. If you do not already own this game i am telling you to go buy this.

Once in a blue moon you get a game that makes you feel you are the main character. This one does and very effectively. There is no one who shouldn't play this game at one time in their life or the other. It has an awesome story line that leaves you both ticked and awed at the same time. If you have a decent computer this game will make you think that you have the best computer in the world. It doesn't take much power, but you will drop your jaw at the detail very often. The big daddies are so awesome, the guy talking to you on the radio is great. You have to buy this game to see the unique environment that you are put in. If you have a any problem with your sound make sure to enable stereo mixing hidden in the microphone tab of your sound menu. It took me a long time to figure that out. Well grab your shot gun and kill some genetically modded peeps! Happy Shooting!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Glenn Good Question, 360 or PC
I downloaded and played the demo on my 360, I found it amazing! Gameplay was smooth and beautiful to look at. Loved the 1950's look of the game, creepy characters roam around as you discover new places and new weapons. I really enjoyed seeing them get fried and burned then wacked with a monkey wrench. Hehe givem the old 1 , 2 . This is the game that XBOX " should " have had for when it launched. Like the guy said below, 360 or PC is the only con I see so far in this game. 360 fun , sofa, controller, big screen HDTV or PC fun, precision of the mouse and keyboard, big wide screen monitor. I stil have not made up my mind on this choice but I do know I am going to my local GameStop and picking up this game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer Amazing game.
Bioshock will probably one, if not the best horror/FPS game released in 2007. With it's superior graphics, and stunning story line combined with an amazing company, the same company who created system shock franchise this game will truely be a work of genius. And don't listen to anybody who says it's a windows vista exclusive, because it is not. Anybody who has done any research on this game what so ever will know that this game supports a dx9 version, as well as a dx10 version. The dx9 version will work on windows XP just fine. So to the guy who posted before me, you obviously have no idea what you're talking about.
Rated 0 out of 10 by dillon Best Game of 2007
If this game is anything like it's relative System Shock 2 then this will be the best game of the year. A FPS that requires thought vs just charging in and holding down the trigger ... how rare are those these days ... As for the preview " Um Huh?" by "Guest" This game is for true gamers, not people who discovered FPS by getting an Xbox and playing Halo. The graphics are sharp and look great ... the only "dated" aspect is the fact that it's designed to look retro-40-50s style. gtfo nub.

There are so many games that I am looking forward to this summer and fall. Bioshock has got to be the deepest, innovative, unique game that I have ever read about or seen. This game has story, immersion, creativity written all over it. The atmosphere and ability to enhance your body, plus the big daddy's, plasmids etc.. is amazing. I simply, like a lot of people can't wait for this game!!!! August can't comer soon enough. This game looks and sounds incredible.
Rated 0 out of 10 by ATM One of the games to look forward to.
Irrational Games, the developer, also was responsible for Thief (when some of the staff worked for Looking Glass Studios) and System Shock/System Shock 2, which were some of the best games ever made for PC. Now comes Bioshock, the spiritual successor to System Shock. And if you haven't been living under a rock, this game is shaping up to be one of the must-have games of 2007. The graphics: amazing. The story: engaging. But it's not coming out until June. We'll all just have to wait.
Rated 0 out of 10 by TheNewAmazing Can't imagine a better fps
The story is the most original I have ever heard of in any video game, and the gameplay looks realistic and not like a futurist sci-fi like Metroid, Halo, or any other fps we've seen in the past 10 years. The developers are trying to reinvent the genre and It looks like they just migh. We've come a long ways since games like Doom as far as storytelling and gameplay, now it's time for the type of game to shine.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Host Amazing
This game was stunning. Not only does it keep you very entertained, the visuals and game play are what make this game great! The semi old school guns, music and appeal make the game really interesting. Its dark and at times deranged but it keeps you moving forward! Great game!
