BioShock 1

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. Powerful guardians roam the corridors, as Little Sisters loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn.

BioShock is the “genetically enhanced” first person shooter that lets you do things never before possible in the genre: turn everything into a weapon, biologically mod your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade your weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques in an incredible and unique underwater city.

You are a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces, and hunted down by genetically modified “splicers” and deadly security systems, you have come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same, and no two gamers will play the game the same way.

BioShock is loaded with some of the greatest, most modifiable weapons to every blast their way into a shooter. But guns alone won’t be enough to defeat the devious AIs of Rapture. There are literally hundreds of other strategies players can use to take out his [or her] enemies. Here are just a few things you can do to a foe:

  • Catch his grenades in mid air and toss them back at him
  • Freeze him solid and shatter him with a smack of your wrench
  • Lead him and his comrades to water and zap them all with 1000 volts
  • Burn him up with home-made Molotov Cocktails
  • Booby Trap Healing Machines and watch them blow up in his face
  • Brainwash him to become your personal bodyguard
  • Invent your own ammo types to prey on his vulnerabilities
  • Turn his own security system against him
  • Light him on fire and launch heat seeking missles at him
  • Torment him with plagues of insects
  • Take research photos of him to learn his weaknesses
  • Send him flying into the ceiling to knock him senseless

No encounter ever plays out the same way twice. No two gamers will ever play BioShock the same way.
