Windows Vista and 7 users: For information about playing Bioshock on your Operating System. see our guide on GameFly Support: http://www.gamefly.com/support/gameflydigital/faq/352
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 forces you to question the lengths to which you will go and how much of your humanity you will sacrifice...to save your own life.

BioShock is loaded with some of greatest, most modifiable weapons to ever blast their way into a shooter. But guns alone won’t be enough to defeat the devious AIs of Rapture. There are literally hundreds of other strategies players can use to take out his enemies. Here’s just a few things you can do a foe:

  •  Catch his Grenades in Mid Air and Toss Them Back at Him
  •  Freeze Him Solid and Shatter Him with Smack of your Wrench
  •  Lead him and his comrades to water and Zap them all with 1000 Volts
  •  Burn Him Up With Home-Made Molotov Cocktails
  •  Booby Trap Healing Machines and Watch Them Blow up IN his Face
  •  Brainwash Him to Become Your Personal BodyGuard
  •  Invent your own Ammo Types to Prey on his Vulnerabilities
  •  Turn his own Security System Against Him
  •  Light Him on Fire and Launch Heat Seeking Missiles At him
  •  Torment Him with Plagues of Insects
  •  Take Research Photos of Him to Learn his Weaknesses
  •  Send Him Flying into the Ceiling to Knock him Senseless
 
  •  Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival.
  •  Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment.
  •  Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities.
  •  Explore a living world powered by Ecological A.I., where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience.
  •  Experience truly next generation graphics that vividly illustrate the forlorn art deco city, highlighted by the most detailed and realistic water effects ever developed in a video game.
  •  Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture or save them?

Compelling, but didn't quite live up to the hype

This game definitely sets a great steampunk / zombie atmosphere, and succeeded in freaking me out with twisted and disturbing enemies and ambiance. The gameplay and weapons are also definitely original for a FPS. Unfortunately I lost interest after making it to the second level. There just wasn't quite enough added gratification in moving on in the game. The combat upgrades were a bit frustrating to obtain and having to return to the beginning of the level to change to a different one was a pain. I might try the second one to see if they perfected it.

While the game is a bit dated, both visually and technically, it is still an awesome game. I'm giving it an 8 as if the game came out today. This is one of the best creepy games I've played (I'm downloading a couple more right now). The story, when looked at from outside, is a bit ludicrous, but they sell it so well, you end up just going with it. Very immersive and engaging. Had a blast. As a matter of fact, I'm going to reinstall this game after I get done downloading some new purchases. Great game.

Bioshock is by far the most original IP I have ever played. It is a mix between FPS, Survival Horror, and RPG all rolled into one! The plasmids are much fun too experiment with and the shooting is not as easy as one might think. The story and setting really blows your mind on a scale rarely seen. I put it on par with MGS series. Something so creative you can't help but love the idea. There is nothing more satisfying than super human powers. We all know we want them. As a free download, you cannot miss out on this one if you have never played. For those who have, play it again. It is much fun repeated.
