PostSubject: Bioshock: One of the Grestest Games I've ever Played   Sun Jan 11, 2009 10:26 pm

Back when I used to be a Microsoft hater, i thought this game looked horrible. It seemed to embody everything i hated about XBOX: shooters that emphasize control over quality, and good graphics to supplement dull story. For that reason I was shocked when the game got a 9.7 and several game of the year awards. Despite my shock however, I was no more interested than I had been before.

Fate has an interesting way of turning things around it seems...Bioshock is now one of the greatest games I've ever played, and for the EXACT opposite reason I originally thought i hated it: sure it has great controls(some of the best i've ever experienced) and sure it's graphics are awe-inspiring, but my main criticism was thrown right back in my face-the story was breathtaking and intelligent. I don't think i've ever played a game with a deeper, more meaningful and relevant story.

Perhaps the best part about it is the fact that all of the game's perks work to amplify the story: bring it to life, and make it feel as if all of the events were truly taking place. The sound, the lights, the colors, the voices...everything. For anyone who doesn't know the game, I'll post this trailer.

Just amazing.

ok so i finally got the demo to download and had a chance to play only a very short part of the game but i do have a few questions to ask

what i got from the demo is that some guy survived a airplane crash in the 1960. swam to shore only to find that the is a underwater city that some how people are messed up on something and he gets powers in one arm correct?

my question is what is the main goal to kill the little girl and the weird robot or is there still more to it?

what is the deal with the people?

o and the little girl scared the Shit out of me Shocked

one really cool thing i did see was that i could get SWEET ICE POWERS Very Happy

ok, here we go...let me try and explain this to you...

Basically, you're on the right track. The year is 1960, and you play as a character who happens to be on an airplane which crashes in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You discover an odd light house near the crash site, and enter it. When you enter, you discover a large banner that reads "No Gods, No Kings, Only Man", and an underwater elevator known as a Blathysphere. Once you take the elevator down, you get a message from a man named Andrew Ryan, who tells you he built a city under water to escape from government control on the surface, and wished to create his own world of freedom. You suddenly see an entire city under the water, which is a very amazing and beautiful site. Things aren't as nice as they seem however...

Once you enter the city, you immediately realize that the interior of the city has been torn apart, and that the residents of the city have gone crazy and want to kill you. This is because they have exploited the freedoms Ryan has given them, and become too dependent on the "plasmids", which I'll explain in a minute. Soon you get a message from a man named "Atlas", who asks you to help him save his wife and children from Ryan, and help him escape to the surface. The problem is, Ryan won't let you save them so easily, and sends all of the crazed people, or "splicers" after you. The Splicers have amazing abilities, like the ability to teleport and shoot flames and ice from their hands. They can do this because they have used what are called "plasmids" to re-write their DNA to give them super-human powers. In re-writing their DNA however, they have gone mad and lost all memories of who they used to be...they kill anyone they don't recognize, and are addicted to the plasmids. The only way to fight them is to re-write your own DNA with your own plasmids, hence your ability to shoot Ice.

Throughout the game, you get a bunch of different guns, like machine guns, Grenade Launchers, and crossbows...but more importantly, you get all sorts of amazing powers from the plasmids. Not only can you shoot Ice and fire, but you also get psychic powers, the ability to shoot electricity, abilities to hypnotize your enemies, and so many more. But in order to do this, you have to obtain what is known as ADAM from the little girls, or "Little Sisters"...the only problem is that the Little sisters are protected by what are called "Big Daddies", or the robot things you fought. They're the toughest enemies in the game, and will fight tooth and nail to protect the sisters...if you defeat the Daddies, you get the ADAM, but you have to make a choice...do you "harvest"(kill) the little sisters and get TONS of ADAM(and tons of powers), or do you "save"(free) the sisters to get just a little ADAM. The choice is yours, but whichever you choose will have a big impact on the story.

Overall, the game can be both action packed, and very freaky at once. There are tons of plot twists and turns, and you are constantly wondering who is good, and who is evil...or if you, yourself are the evil one...but either way, this is a game that lets you do almost anything with your environment. You can kill enemies with guns, with plasmids, with the environment(you can lure enemies into water, then electrocute them), or even by turning your enemies on one another! Overall, this is a game that should not be missed....by the time you beat the game, you'll be thanking yourself for doing yourself such a big favor.

I have the demo to this game. It's scary as hell... I'll probably pick it up though.

so if i read you post correct there is more than one "little sister" and more than one of the robot?

well this seems really interesting and something that if i get into i will stay up all night trying to finish it. in the demo i got to a point where i was trapped in a room watching a clip where Ryan was saying that he was going to kill me then the clip ended then people were breaking in then *demo over* Sad

i was left wanting more but have to wait till i buy the real thing nice story line so far

Oh yeah, I know what part you were at...that was just the introductory level...you were just about to enter the hospital.

Yeah,. the game gets really freaky. There are a bunch of those little girls, and even more of the Big Daddies, who i swear are some of the toughest things to fight in pretty much any game out there. But the awesome thing is that the game just gives you so many options. You can literally do almost anything. If you've played the demo, the game is 10X better. you need to play it.

I borrowed it from my friend. It's a scary game, but when you get some real weapons it kinda takes a small edge of your panic away. Now much... but still a little.
