I loathe paying full retail for games, but the buzz on this one was just too much. Playing the demo, reading (and hearing!) so much about System Shock and System Shock II - I just had to try this.

Loved this game. Great ambiance, beautiful musical accompaniment and fantastic minigames.

The only thing I'd score down on this game is that it's truly not 'scary' - the enemies are cartoony, and the mechanic of pop-out or ambush you is not truly that frightening.

That said, I hate scary movies/games, so that was perfectly fine by me!

Found this game to be quite morbid and slightly disturbing to the point of enticement. If you like sci-fi with a good bit of body horror, then you will love this game. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and wondering how it all happened. Try it.

The reason I said rent it first because it is different that your average FPS. The levels are not linear and you may spend a lot of time looking for things. But the developers thought ahead and will give you hints.

Basically, the character Jack finds himself crash-landed in the middle of the pacific ocean. He runs to a nearby lighthouse to seek shelter. Where he finds himself a few minutes later, plunging into the water in some sort of submarine to see a city built underwater. Jack listens to the "Tour guide" saying that the city is awsome blah blah blah. But it turns out it's corrupt due to.....well......"Drug" addicts.

The drug is actually a mutagen that allows the taker to plasmids which are basically super powers. Your main enemies are Splicers which are ADAM addicts and abusers.

Now about the gameplay: The levels are very dark and confined. This makes it intially hard to navigate throughout. I one time missed a weapon and that made it really hard. But eventually you'll get used to it and the game will be fun and a breeze.

Your weapons have different types of ammo like armor-piercing, anti-personell which I think is very original. To get ammo and other items, you can buy them from cheesy 1950 vending machines or search desks, cash registers and bodies.

You starts off with the electro-bolt plasmid. This gives you the ability to stun oponents with an electric shock. At first you can only have two plasmids at a time, but you can buy more at ADAM vending machines.

How do you get ADAM? From these little girls who run around, extracting ADAM from dead bodies for recycling. The catch? They are protected by these really tall, armored guys called Big Daddies. Don't let the name fool you, these guys are tough; especially the first few.

Before playing this game, I had no idea of the story I would get to encounter. In it, you play a survivor of a plane crash who also happens to find by some strange stroke of luck an underground city called Rapture lying deep down the Atlantic Ocean. The first minutes of the game are just simply amazing and frightening as you try to make sense of what is going on. One of the most frightening moment is when you enter and encounter face to face the founder of the city as he talks to you for the first time. Personally this was one of the many goosebumps I got. But the most frightening is in the surgery room when you find some tonic, you look behind you and then...

From the start, the atmosphere immerses you into the game, from the creepy fifties' music to the spooky and morbid lighting around this strange ghost town and the very impressive voice acting to the animation of the character's which are excellent. Loved the powers that you get during the game, especially the telekinesis and the one with the bees. Though you never are to sure of what your character really looks like, if you are very careful, just before you get to meet Andrew Ryan, the founder of Rapture, you get to see photos of you and also learn a shocking revelation.

Happy to see that the public responded well to this game, which was not the case for certain masterpieces like Beyond Good and Evil which got great reviews, but not enough attention from the public for it was released between prince of Persia, The sands of Time and another Tom Clancy's game whose name I forget. I am happy to see that the sequel Bioshock 2 is out and I hope it will be awesome.

On commence le jeu dans le feu de l'action, suite à l'écrasement de notre avion, on se retrouve en pleine mer et on doit rapidement se sortir de se bourbier en nageant vers le rivage le plus proche...

Malheureusement pour nous ce sera vers Rapture que nous, nous dirigerons et on va en avoir pour notre argent si on aime l'étrange, le paranormal et être stressé car l'on débarque dans un univers totalement inconnu et pour le moins peu rassurant...

Dès notre entrée dans ce complexe on est accueilli par de gentils être au doux nom de Chrosomes et laisser moi vous dire si on peut se laisser prendre à leur côté inoffensif les toutes premières fois que l'on les voie, il n'y a plus aucun doute sur ce que l'on doit faire les fois suivantes !

Un titre classé comme l'un des meilleurs jeu de l'histoire et avec raison !

Une chose fort intéressante dans ce jeu est la manière dont l'on gère la mort: cela n'est pas la fin comme dans bien des jeux, heureusement car dans ce jeu on meurt tout de même souvent... Une fois mort les petites s'urs nous ramène dans une "vita chamber" et de là on peut poursuivre nos aventures... Une façon comme une autre de ne pas trop souvent se servir de nos trousses de soins quelque peu rare au début du jeu...

Une autre chose fort innovatrice est les pouvoirs que l'on acquiert tout au long du jeu et la façon dont le tout est gérer... Je ne vous en dit pas trop car cela gâcherait une certaine part du plaisir...
