"Would you kindly" get your behind to Rapture ASAP.....,
This review is from: Bioshock (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Okay. So I'm a few years behind the times, seeing as this was a 2007 release but better late than never!
Bioshock is, in my very humble opinion, a gaming masterpiece. Fantastic concept/story line and a beautifully rendered 'world' in which to explore and ultimately, kill a lot of crazy, mutated people. Between the insane/deranged ramblings of the inhabitants, the creaks and groans of the ruined city, and the strange 'little girls', the sights and sounds within the game genuinely made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up at times. I love the '1950s America' backdrop too. I'm all for realism and being current in my real life but I prefer my games to allow me to escape to somewhere I would never be able to go (in my lifetime anyway). For that reason, I tend to steer clear of warfare games as they don;t interest me.
I won't go into the details of the gameplay because there are plenty of other reviews that fulfil that role. This is just a reccomendation to say that if you have not got Bioshock yet, you're missing out! If you haven't played Bioshock yet, what are you waiting for? Especially at this price! Less than a tenner for an absoloute gaming classic?!? It may not be the ultimate FPS but it more than makes up for that in other ways. Quite simply a must-have for RPG fans.
I repeat "Would you kindly" get yourself to Rapture ASAP...
