BioShock is a horror-themed first-person shooter set in a steampunk underwater dystopia. The player is urged to turn everything into a weapon: biologically modifying their own body with Plasmids, hacking devices and systems, upgrading their weapons, crafting new ammo variants, and experimenting with different battle techniques are all possible. The game is described by the developers as a spiritual successor to their previous PC title System Shock 2. BioShock received high praise in critical reviews for its atmospheric audio and visual quality, absorbing and original plot and its unique gaming experience.

"blah blah blah ludonarrative dissona-" would you kindly SHUT THE FUCK UP

finally finished this game idk why it took so long. uhh probably the greatest atmosphere i have seen in a game and good lore and story and plot and antagonist.

Man excellent game this series is perfect the whole.way around
The plot twist is still probably the best in any game it's held the test of time and I don't think that will ever change

My words alone can't do this game enough justice. A timeless classic that no one should sleep on. Please, just play it.

I quite like this game, but it could never have lived up to the sheer amount of hype it got. Good atmosphere, fun story, and a solid- if muddled -message.
