    The failed underwater utopia of  Rapture is the real star of this shooter. The world is beautiful, even after its downfall. As you shoot, zap, freeze, burn, tornado, and bee your way through the leaking hallways and ruined pleasure parks you start to piece together what must have happened. It's a story of idealism broken by corruption. Imperfect men and women try to build a world unfettered by the stogy ethics of the surface world. A closet full of the blood stained dresses of murdered Little Sisters speaks to their success.

    The game play is fun. It's not non-stop action in the vein of Gears of War, but there's more than enough to go around.  The RPG elements are light, consisting of a few choices of which "plasmids" and "tonics" to upgrade your character with. The mournful call of the Big Daddies stomping through the halls stays with me still. The ending even made me mist up a little.

    I completely loved this game.

Descending down after gathering himself properly, he disc...

      When I thought new Sci-fi shooters began to overlap, I was contradicted after purchasing BioShock. The primary difference this game has (although it has numerous differences to today's shooters) is its emphasis on making decisions. At first when you are given the choices in this game, they don't seem so heavy, but as you play through this game you will see their significance. Despite a lack of multiplayer, BioShock is a very powerful shooter that gamers out there should not miss.The Plot- It is ...
