BioShock is a revolution in
the shooter genre that will forever change the expectations for
the FPS. Going beyond "run and gun corridors,"
"monster-closet AIs" and static worlds, BioShock
creates a living, unique and unpredictable FPS experience.
BioShock is the Shooter 2.0.
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.
- 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
- 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?
