The story in BioShock is dark and satisfying, something that will make you contemplate it long after you've put the game down. And though combat takes a back seat to the enthralling atmosphere, it's still extremely satisfying to combine your plasmid powers with traditional weapons. The lack of any meaningful new content is disappointing, but this is still one of the finest first-person shooters around and a game that simply should not be missed.

Overall, BioShock is still as powerful an interactive experience as it was a year ago. It's lost none of its freshness, its newness or its impact. It's the thinking man's shooter and poster boy for the 'games are art' brigade. On PS3 it still is. For many BioShock was 2007's game of the year. How funny that for PS3 owners it might be 2008's.

The visuals are absolutely stunning! Although, framerate issues are still a problem if you don’t unlock them in the options menu, which then leads to reduced quality. If you’ve never played BioShock, you’re in for a real treat. However, the absence of the touted Challenge Room feature was very disappointing and hurts replayability.

The concept, characters and pacing are all leagues above the current competition; the genuinely shocking twists are worthy of a feature film. Unlike a movie, however, the experience here is always a personal one - a quest of discovery, a search for identity. Most remarkably, while the answers you desire do exist, the game does not give them away easily.

Go out and get your hands on BioShock -- you will thoroughly enjoy exploring the incredible story and the excellent action that the game is known for. However, if you've played the game before, or are expecting this to be the definitive version, that's can't be found here. Sure, the full trophy support and Survivor mode are great, and the Challenge Rooms could add a ton to the replayability (whenever it's implemented).

Is BioShock the greatest game of all time? I honestly don't know, but it's one of the most interesting and immersive experiences to grace our beloved medium. It certainly has flaws, most notably the anti-climactic boss fight which takes place too long after the story has delivered its sucker punch. Yet it's because that sucker punch is so effective that the niggling plot holes have received so much attention.

BioShock is a beautifully written and stunningly realised game with the addictive qualities of the best first person shooters, an epic story that I’ve yet to see bettered in gaming and an atmosphere unrivalled by any game currently available on the PS3 or the 360. BioShock was a rare treat for me - a truly impressive game that lived up to the hype. It's one of the best games available on this generation of consoles.

Rapture is a breathtaking world that should be shared and enjoyed by every self-respecting gamer out there. From the stunning visuals to the unique gameplay on offer, BioShock delivers something that not many other games can – an unforgettable experience. Hiccups aside, this is an absolute must have title for every PS3 owner out there.

El sistema de combate, en el que se nos insta a alternar el uso de armas y poderes plásmicos de maneras cada vez más imaginativas, es de lo mejor del género. Rapture no deja de sobrecogernos por mucho que la visitemos, prueba irrefutable de que nos encontramos ante uno de los entornos mejor elaborados vistos en juego alguno. Tras disfrutar de BioShock, las sensaciones experimentadas con el resto de FPS que inundan el mercado te parecerán vacías y sin alma.

Bioshock es uno de los mejores videojuegos de PlayStation 3. Así de simple. Su duración de algo menos de 10 horas y su ausencia de multijugador no pueden enturbiar la que es una de las experiencias más aterradoras y a la vez cautivadoras que se pueden experimentar en estos momentos. Un juego innovador, divertido, apasionante y tecnológicamente muy avanzado, que supone un nuevo acercamiento al techo de la cada día más alta bóveda del arte de los videojuegos.

Bioshock est envoûtant, une pièce d'art qui se savoure non seulement comme un excellent jeu mais même comme un excellent bouquin narrant la déchéance d'une utopie. Et ça, c'est encore trop rare. Sortant avec un an de retard sur les autres versions, cette déclinaison PS3 est strictement identique aux autres mais gagne un nouveau mode de difficulté qui ravira les amateurs de challenge corsé. De plus, on attend de voir débarquer les fameux niveaux bonus orientés vers la résolution d'énigmes.

Estamos mais uma vez perante um jogo memorável e altamente recomendável aos amantes daquilo que é bom! Uma história incrível como já existem poucas nos dias que correm e uma conjugação de elementos incrivelmente bem recriados, fazem mais uma vez de Bioshock uma aposta a ter em conta.
