About the Game

BioShock is a shooter unlike any you've ever played, loaded with weapons and tactics never seen. You'll have a complete arsenal at your disposal from simple revolvers to grenade launchers and chemical throwers, but you'll also be forced to genetically modify your DNA to create an even more deadly weapon: you. Injectable plasmids give you super human powers: blast electrical currents into water to electrocute multiple enemies, or freeze them solid and obliterate them with the swing of a wrench.

No encounter ever plays out the same, and no two gamers will play the game the same way.

- Biologically modify your body: send fire storming from your fingertips and unleash a swarm of killer hornets hatched from the veins in your arms.
- Hack devices and systems, upgrade your weapons and craft new ammo variants.
- Turn everything into a weapon: the environment, your body, fire and water, and even your worst enemies.
- Explore an incredible and unique art deco world hidden deep under the ocean.

5 out of 5 eggsA Gaming Classic

Pros: A great Game. I played years ago on a XBOX. I just game on the PC now. I am glad to add this game to my PC collection and go back to the world of Rapture. The game is easy to redeem with steam and installed perfectly on my win 8.1 without any problems or doing any thing special.

Cons: Have to wait to download. Took 3hrs. Not really complaining just being impatient .

Other Thoughts: A great buy at 5 bucks. Cheaper than buying it on steam ($20)

1 out of 5 eggsBioshock

Pros: NONE.
Okay, one PRO. I bought it from Steam for 99 cents.
It still doesn't work but at least it was only 99 cents.
Counting the hours I spent trying to get it to run on my computer makes it more than a complete rip off though.
So you've been warned.

Cons: This game refuses to work on modern computers.
I've tried every single "fix" suggested by Steam themselves and also the user suggestions on the Steam Forums, and this game just plain doesn't work.
It doesn't even open.
Unless you happen to be using a 10 year old computer, with all of its original components, you won't be running this game at all.

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind passing on this original Bioshock, both Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite work just fine on modern computers.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent game

Pros: Great game, awesome gameplay, interesting and well written story. It's a game I would recommend to everyone, Irrational Games rarely disappointes.

Incredible environment and atmosphere.

Original story and setting, doesn't feel like a game you've played before, unless of course you've played Bioshock 2 or Infinite, then it might feel familiar.

Cons: Nothing bad enough to be called a con, I guess the game doesn't play itself for you, nor is it free.

Other Thoughts: The ending is a bit weak compared to the rest of the game, but that is no reason to miss out on an adventure through the mysterious and dark city of Rapture.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

Pros: I wouldn't know if there are any pros. This game does not work with Windows 7 for many people. Those that do get it to run must jump through hoops for it to work.

Cons: Just do a quick online search of the multitude of problems people have had trying to install this application on any newer computer and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I've tried everything recommended on how to install this from running as an admin to using the -dx9 code to disabling unused playback devices to installing GFLW to setting compatibility mode... You name it, I've tried it. I wouldn't have written a negative review if this were an isolated incident, but this is a big problem for many users.

Other Thoughts: Do your research heavily before purchasing any games. This one should come with a warning that most likely it won't work and if it does the average PC user (and even many experienced ones as well) will struggle just to get it running.
