Going beyond "sprint and gun passages," "monster-closet AIs" and stationary worlds, BioShock makes a living, exclusive and changeable FPS experience. After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you realize a rusted bathysphere and go down into Rapture, a city hidden under the sea. Created as an unrealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, performers and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, madly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and heritably mutated citizens waylay you at every turn.
Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting sole items critical to your very endurance. Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, volatiles and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment. Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered all through the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque capabilities.
