Bioshock is one of those rare experiences in a FPS where you don't think to yourself; "What is Master Chief up to???" Bioshock holds it's own and thank God! The string of crappy FPS games to come out in the last 4 years other than Halo and Halo 2 is astounding. Bioshock is one of those rare beautifully crafted, smooth gameplay and enjoyable game type of experiences. The enhancements through the plasmids is one of the coolest things and really sets Bioshock out on it's own. The water effects and beautiful underwater views from the windows is a sight to behold in this game. The splicers are some of the funnest and funniest baddies in a game that I have ever fought. They are inept but, posses great power with their plasmids and most of a unique plasmid they favor. Big Daddies and Little Sisters are as creepy as they are dangerous. The Bigs are very strong and hard as hell the first few times around but as soon as you figure out their strategy(basically the same strategy as Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears) and make your best plasmid and weapon choice they are cake. The little Sisters are honestly fun to kill...espically with a Shotgun, you can give them a barrel fun of love their mommy and daddy never did!!! Overall, I gotta say Bioshock is a great game and it's nice to see they 2K Games can do more than ***** about Madden's exclusive rights to the NFL. Credit goes out to ya 2K!
