The year is 1960, while flying over the Atlantic ocean, average citizen Jack blacks out and awakens to discover that he is the sole survivor of a plane crash. Amidst the wreckage of his plane Jack spots and swims to a lighthouse and boards a Bathysphere that takes him deep within the ocean and into Rapture. Originally conceived as a utopia where a man would be entitled to all that he made without the interference of "parasites" by idealistic billionaire mogul Andrew Ryan. Rapture has since decayed and festered from the infectious effects of civil war and anarchy, brought about by the very ideals it citizens and it's leader embrace. Aided by a sympathetic smuggler and a rogue geneticist, Jack salvages gene altering chemicals transforming himself into a superhuman, and uses his newfound powers and abilities as well as an arsenal of weapons to fend off the vicious hordes of psychotic mutants, security robots and armored supersoldiers that resulted from Rapture's unrest while given the ...

This little fish looks like he got his cherry popped, wonder if he still got some ADAM on him..
2 March 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Hehe, Bioshock, I can still remember buying it and beating it in one time, what an experience ! First of all to explain the story, You are a man on a plain going to a destination, unlike everything plane crashes and you swim to the nearest platform, this platform is 'Rapture' A utopia under the Atlantic ocean. Very quickly you can see what kind of thoughts they put in this game. From politics, to Graphics, A city where no man must not bow under the means of: Chatolism, presidents, MAN. other then that it shows yet again the conflicts of man with power. Power results to the need of more power, hence the massacre in Rapture. I don't understand why this game deserves a 18+ rating it isn't that scary.. It has great gameplay and atmosphere but please, it isn't SAW IV you know.. As you advance in the game you will get to a point where you will have to depend at you're moral abilities. eg. Little Sisters, They carry ADAM, ADAM, will give you powers, (Cool powers... Like shooting wasps and Ice cold helium or Fire) But the girl will Die, if you let her choose to live, you will get half of the ADAM hence you will have to survive with less powers. (I didn't choose to kill the girls, I'm happy i didn't ;D) I could tell a helluva lot more but i need to rush to bed. Read other comments you will only see positive comments.
