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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome, but rent it first. Oct. 21 2007

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bioshock Dec 14 2007

This game is one of those where you have to see it for yourself. Bioshock is a game where you actually can play the game the way that you want.

There is a lot of weapons in this game, most of you already know about the pistol and tommy gun, but what about power weapons like the exploding crossbow, to the chemical thrower. These weapons are fun to use, but the game makes you earn them, unlike other FPS, that give them to you.

Another feature is the plasmids. While you may not think much about them first, you'll soon figure out that you need to use them to survive. The most useful plasmids are actually the offensive ones, so i'm just going to say that winter blast 3, with a combo of explosives = own. You can destory the highest ranking big daddy, if you are lucky enough.

So enough about the weapons, let's talk about the length of the game, since this is only SP, you must be wondering how good it is. Well, the length is great, if you only decide to blast through the main story, there still is a lot to do.

There is a small con in the gameplay, which is a hacking puzzle, but you can actually skip these by using autohack tools, or buying out the hack. However, you can get some achievements by hacking quite a few times, so you might want to.

This game also deals with your thoughts, and emotions like few other games I've played before. You can either save a little girl, or kill her to get more adam. If you save 3 you get a gift that has rare stuff. Repeat this for actually awesome stuff.

I would recommend this to you if you don't have Xbox Live even, this is a game for someone that doesn't care for it, since it is only SP.

Overall I give it a 5/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Bioshock or Voyage to the Bottom of the sea March 11 2008
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Better late than never for my review! A little bit of everything makes a few days pass by quickly. Bioshock is a little bit of Half-Life, Voyage to the Bottom of the sea (TV show of the Sixties) and Pokemon Snap. Half-Life for the walkabout - mind you this game is less linear. You explore and sometimes fight with a wrench, you can always fight your way with the wrench. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, funny dialogue, big monster, you are at the bottom of the sea. And finally Pokemon Snap, you take pictures, the best ones are the action shot, move with your camera always on you never know when you will have someone jump at you from nowhere. Finally probably one of the best looking game. Better than Halo 3!

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.
