  • Biologically mod your body with plasmids: genetic augmentations that empower you with dozens of fantastic abilities. Send Electrobolts storming from your fingertips, unleash a swarm of hornets hatched from the veins of your arms, strategically turn enemies against one another with irritants.
  • Take control of your world by hacking devices and systems: reprogram enemy security bots into personal bodyguards, modify vending machines to change prices, and transform machine gun security turrets into powerless pieces of metal.
  • Upgrade your weapons at Fire-For-Effect stations located through Rapture. Craft variants of ammo and plasmids by picking up materials in the city to modify them at U-Invent kiosks.
  • Experiment with different battle techniques with BioShock's free form combat options: gameplay scenarios can be approached with a variety of weapons, active and passive plasmids, environmental objects utilization, exploitation of political alliances, or a combination of techniques. Find your style but know when to adapt.
  • Explore an incredible and unique art deco world hidden deep under the ocean, vividly illustrated with realistic water effects and truly next generation graphics.
  • Make meaningful and mature decisions that culminate in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture to save yourself... or risk all to become their savior?
  • ESRB Rating: MATURE with Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Sexual Themes, Drug Reference, and Intense Violence

Bioshock is AWESOME!

A very fine game, a sleeper hit that will have you up late at night! The storyline is first rate, graphics first rate, and the combat is first rate. You can't go wrong here, not a bit. Bioshock restored my faith in FPS, I was long out of playing the first person shooters, this one brought back the magic, IN FORCE! Really, if you get no other game, this is the one to have!

to be complete;y honest this game got me into it, i was at my friends house and lets me try it, the story made sense, it has not perfect but good graphics good enough to buy, plus its cheap for a challenging game, anybody who loves first shooters like this i suggest buying duke nukem and 2nd part of this game, well worth the money, only problem is hard difficulties sometimes wont allow you to beat some bosses, kills you easily....other than that overalll i enjoy it very much and looking forward for more great games like this

this isn't ur pop it in and go game, u have to learn how to live in the virtual world of Bioshock, but its fun once you get the hang of it, plus there is some game exploits where u can get alot of money and as the game progresses the virtual world opens up to you so it acutally gets simpler as you go, but u have to take the time to learn the ropes, 4 out of 5 Stars

I'm not typically a fan of first person shooters, however the Bioshock story sucked me in right away. The combination of a compelling, unfolding mystery story, amazing soundtrack (not just the music, but the various creaks, moans, and public service announcements that you hear as you navigate the city of Rapture), and breathtaking visuals make for an amazing, immersive experience. Not only was the story so enthralling and the environment so beautiful that I forgot all my complaints about FPS games, but the game mechanics themselves, including the weapon usage and upgrade mechanics and the hacking mini-game that requires quick wits and on-the-fly decision making, all combine to create an amazing gaming experience.

Albeit a port from the 360, it's still a good game

I would really like to give this game a better rating, however, it was quite obvious that this game was treated as a port. There were some perks that made it worth buying it such as the great price, an even harder difficulty level, a few plasmids you won't find on the 360 version, and a better frame-rate. Despite these positive points, no PS3 owner can deny how pixelated the Big Daddies are. As for the texture in the level design, I saw how they weren't as sharp as the 360 version. Despite these graphical setbacks, there is still a great deal of fun to be had in this game.

This game stands out than any other game. Not only you have to save rapture, but you can modify weapons, hack, set traps, invent, and turn everything a weapon. But whats makes the game good you make the decision.

At first, my reluctance to buy this product was due to the fact of not enough reviews or details. After working at Walmart and discussing this game with fellow co-workers and hearing other customers talk about it, I was quick to purchase this game to see if the hype was accurate. Indeed it was and beyond what I had expected. This game has to easily be the best game I have played on the PS3 and even quite possibly be disputed as the best game I have ever played. I would recommend this game over any other game on the market (until Bioshock 2 comes out.....)

Great game, and online a great price (around $18 now). The story is gripping, and the graphics and gameplay enhance the horror of the story and situation you find yourself. Although I am not through the game, I highly recommend it to others who have not tried it yet. WARNING: DO NOT SHOW/PLAY TO YOUNG CHILDREN, AS THE "MA" RATING IS WELL EARNED.
