Love the support Amazon!
It has fun and addictive gameplay.
If you dig it, or get the many references (Andrew Ryan = Ayn Rand, author + creator of Objectivism), and learn from it while having fun.
Plus, like I said above, the game and story is FUN!
The art style is fantastic. Really good graphics for a game from 2007. And I enjoyed the music selection for the game. It gives age to a science-fiction style underwater city full of genetic experimentation. The best is when you turn on a jukebox and it plays "How Much is That Doggy in the Window" because it's so completely inappropriate for the setting. It just adds to the strangeness.
The game controls great. I'm not a big fan of first-person games, but climbing, jumping, pressing buttons, collecting items, and simple navigation like walking and crouching are all perfectly executed. Most enemies don't sprint around you, which makes it easy on the stomach for those who suffer motion sickness. I found the game to be more about slow exploration than fast-paced shooting.
There is a good variety of weapons and "plasmids" which are basically superpowers. You can easily switch between plasmid and weapon with the right mouse button. As in most games you can mouse-scroll to change weapons or click the corresponding number on the keyboard. There is a "damage research" system that lets you take photographs of enemies to build up research points, which turns into bonus damage as you complete the research tiers.Read more ›
Early on you are forced to decide between sacrificing a "Little Sister" to receive more ADAM, or save her, and receive less. Depending on the choices you make throughout the game, you will get different endings and different opportunities. For example, (SPOILER), if you save every single Little Sister, thereby depriving yourself of ADAM throughout the game, the Little Sisters will come to your aid throughout the game and make the final boss fight considerably easier.
Personally I think it is easily worth $20, but it is frequently on sale for $5 or less, or $10 in a pack with the sequel, Bioshock 2, so unless you have to have it right now, I'd suggest waiting.

A great game on Xbox and outstanding on PC. Better graphics and smother game play. Unique FPS game that is still rated in the top 10 must play games.Published 14 months ago by Robb
