It's 1959 you're just a simple guy that happens to survive a plane crash in the middle of no where Atlantic ocean.Only to find a tall building in the distance upon entering it the doors close and you enter a bathasphere in which you see a short video about a place you are about to enter,and that little place happens to be RAPTURE.The place where the strong will not be restrainded by the weak,where the artist does not fear the censor,and where no scientist fear pety morality.Upon entering this place you make your first friend Atlast who is happy to see you in the hell hole.You must help him save his family along the way to escape Rapture. (I could say more,but I dnt want to spoil it for the 3 people that have yet to buy this game.)
The graphics are really good in this game, but could be better because for some reason whenever you kill an enemy they end up looking diffrent than what they would be, they kind of end up looking like character modles or to put it simply they end up looking with less details as if the were alive.
Character design seems lazy because only two character acctually look completly diffrent (Ryan and Choen) while all the other characters have splicer modles with just slight tweaks in their clothing and looks.
Everything looks above average ,but might glitch if you play it more than a few hours.
The sound is good because the music can freak you at times,but I find it kind of annoying when the music keeps on repeating it self.The splicers will probably repeat themselvs more than once if you just stick around.Sound may glitch like a little sister still crying during the harvesting or the rescuing of them.There is absolutly no problem with sound.
Simple with it's damage caculater of each weapns is better than the other and the enemies have the same tactic of moving to the left or the right when attacking.Now the big daddies are very intersting because they have almost no weakness unlike other game bossess.Like the Bouncer strong, quick, and lots of health this guy is capeable of taking you out in 3 hits or less on any difficulty.
Plasmids are fun and some what limited.Plasmids are simply awesome, but I doubt you'll be using some ever,let me give you an exapmle:I have all the plasmids and the slots so I can have six plasmids at the most at a time,I choose electrobolt,incinerate,winter blast,insect swarm,telecineses,and one more choice, the thing though is that you have a wild card because all the major plasmids have been choosen and you don't even need that slot, sure it maybe usefull if you want to do stealth instead of full frontal fighting (im not judging) but like I said other than that you don't really need it unless you want to use it for the one DLC plasmid.
It's a good game running through it for the first time but just gets boring after the second time.The only reason I'm still playing this is because of the achievements and that's it.I don't know about you though but it just seems that this game needs atleast a few side quests or atleast more plasmids to makie it fun, also to help on the brass balls achievement.This game will get old as soon as you get both of the endings.
Needs more plasmids,bosses,and something to help replay value of this game.Weapons should have a bit more upgrades. Lets hope Bioshock 2 will fix these problems.All in all it's a good game the first time you play it,but that's it nothing more nothing less.
