A short intro before the plane crashes down.
The only way is forward pass the flames.
The plane crashed in the ocean... good thing someone built a lighthouse in the middle of nowhere.
It's not like you can swim back to the shore... going down is the only way.
Loading screen slide.
Over time you will gather a plethora of weapons and special abilities.
Your powers are out of control, and as such switch without your control... hence the "blue screen of death" ;)
Map is easy to navigate until you reach the branching arrows which are plentiful.
Gather various tapes to find out more about what has happened to the residents of this accursed city.
Big daddy won't attack you unless you threaten the little one.
While putting up a big fight, big daddy will go down just as well.
I don't talk to the city residents... my machine-gun does that instead.
When you kill big daddy, you can harvest the girl's powers or help her become normal again.
She is struggling now, but will thank me a few seconds later.
Use electricity to stun the enemy... or kill them if they are in the water.
You abilities need to be replenished, so balance the use of bullets and special powers.
Flame thrower is strong against human targets, but depletes rapidly.
There are many plasmids to choose from.
Hacking the machine... you need to connect pipes to the end before the fluid fills them.
You have different ammo type for each weapon so don't waste special ammo on regular enemies.
This little kitty sneaked up on me... too bad 'cos I'm a dog lover.
Freeze up the enemy then break the ice along with them.
Always check defeated foes and various boxes and cans for useful items or cash.
Scene from the very short intro
A creepy title screen
This doesn't look good.
Holy sh*t. This is an inferno.
What's this? A beacon in the middle of the ocean?
Rather strange greeting
The elevator to your destiny
Only a few minutes into the game and already you see advertising - I hate it.
Rapture - your home for the next 25 hours.
A splicer gives you a warm welcome.
The map you can access at any time.
A security bot - thank god he's on my side for now.
This guy looks very creepy.
One Man's madness.
A Gatherer's Garden terminal where you get new Plasmids.
Your first Plasmid - Prepare for a wild ride.
Sounds like it hurts when your own DNA gets rewritten.
The rest of your plane finally followed you down.
This corridor won't last much longer.
You can find items in many places - including trash cans.
This splicer is on fire but I think you already knew that.
Creepy - it seems like a woman attends to her baby. I won't tell you what really happens here.
Someone mourned his lost dad and husband.
The new year's eve party - the day it all started to go wrong.
The main character sometimes sees visions of things that happened.
A little sister at work.
A splicer attacks a little sister - a big mistake.
A Big Daddy comes to protect the little sister.
If you die you'll respawn here.
The water looks gorgeous.
Did someone order grilled mutants?
If you drink too much alcohol your vision blurs.
Saving a Little Sister.
Cohen, probably the creepiest guy in Rapture. And you must help him complete his so dearly masterpiece.
Frying a Big Daddy.
Many of the rooms are optional to explore, but offer interesting tales when you listen to the electronic diaries.
About to launch a frag grenade to whatever's lurking behind the corner.
Inside a theatre
Our plane crashed in the middle of the ocean.
A strange lighthouse is the only shelter.
Are we the only survivor?
Inside the lighthouse.
Some kind of travel device. Is this Myst?
Andrew Ryan explains his rationale
The city Ryan built far from prying government eyes.... Rapture.
Looks like Rapture isn't living up to its name.
What happened to the people?
A security drone saves us from our attacker.
Pipe wrench fight.
Everyone else in Rapture couldn't handle genetic manipulation. Let's see how you fare.
WA-HAAA! The POWER!
We'll need more than a wrench to fix this leak.
Beautiful water effects
One of the lucky ones?
Rapture's falling apart in every way you can think of.
I guess New Year's wasn't so happy.
We're armed now, for what good it will do us.
Bio-shocking! ..err... complaints to the usual address.
You can find audio logs to help piece together what happened here.
First glimpse at a Big Daddy and Little Sister.
