Bioshock is a fantastic game. Everything it sets out to do it achieves. It's setting and atmosphere is the best thing I've seen in any game. Combat is fun and the story is very unique. I think the game drags a little in the middle, however the fantastic first and last third of the game more than make up for it.
Dark, frightening, and philosophical, Bioshock will give players an experience they will never forget. With many weapons and powers that they can wield, players will be able to defeat enemies in their own unique ways. With a story that appears non-explicate, the plot twist will blow your mind. A game like this ages fairly well despite the graphical appearances, but gives it a unique charm. Bioshock is indeed a game that players will remember after when they reached the ending of their choice. For "A man choses, a slave obeys".
A really strong game with beautiful art direction and intense first person shooting gameplay that lets the player explore the downfall of a culture and society as the weight of its own ideology crumbles under the reality of the situation. That is until the game jumps the shark by the third act and doesn't quite recover from there.
