BioShock Review

This game is terrifying. BioShock occurs in an underwater world called Rapture. The name of the protagonist is not given; he is known throughout the game as the narrator. A bevy of scientific experiments were transpiring in Rapture, and some were unknown to many people. This is where the player enters the picture. You travel there to examine Rapture, but you are immersed in a perverse atmosphere. BioShock has an exemplary storyline that is rare in the first person genre.
The visuals and audio are excellent. Graphically, BioShock looks sensational and holds up nicely without any frame rate glitches. Players will hear the eerie sounds of little girls as they hide. Footsteps are heard loud and clear when various enemies approach you. The most engrossing aspect of BioShock has to be the gameplay. Within an instant, the narrator can launch what appears to be an endless swarm of bees at his opponents. He can also utilize lighting to put him in more advantageous positions. For instance, hurls lightening at enemies while they are in water with damage nearby adversaries. When all else fails, you can always use a gun. The perfect blend of expending magic and bullets is an intriguing balance.
BioShock is a fairly simple game because there is not much of a challenge, but do not let that deter you from playing it. I have not been this terrified playing a game since the original Resident Evil. Everything about the game, oozes bloodcurdling. From the suspenseful music to the creepy foes, BioShock will give even the amateur gamers nightmares. It was so frightening that I could not bear to play BioShock in the dark; furthermore, I defy anyone to play BioShock at night.
Final Verdict: 9.5 out of 10
