We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
Yes i had to use exclamation marks to make it look cooler, after playing and completing bioshock i must say this is what games should be made of.

The opening sequence will blow you away on its own before the game even starts you emerge after a fatal plane crash, into what i can only describe as hellfire on water you see flames engulfing everything around and most people forgot it was even a game and thinking "hey why won't the game start its just some water" till you realise this is the game and yes the graphics *are* that good! so ok this game has some minor bugs like the a.i being totally oblivious to you even being there sometimes, and the fact their bodies shake like your grandad at a disco once they are dead, but as for that this game shines through,
the eye for detail really does stand out as your entering the city you see a full rendered city with whales!!, yes i say whales! and all kinds of being's one of which looks similar to the squids out of the matrix movies, but all is pulled off with style if this was an imax video your brain would explode,
this title deserves good rating across the board and immersive storyline great character design *big daddy gives me nightmares!* and the controls feel so nice like my half-life condemned style memories.
i await the sequel do you??
(waits for the day games can be implanted into your brain so you can play asleep)
