Alors certes, ce n'est pas Deus Ex, ok, il ne r茅volutionne peut-锚tre rien, mais au final tout y est, sans exception, et plus encore. La libert茅 qu'offre Bioshock est subtile, cach茅e dans une IA qu'il est jouissif d'exploiter 脿 son avantage, dans la possibilit茅 de revenir sur ses pas et d'avancer au rythme qu'on s'est choisi, de constituer le personnage qui ressemble le plus 脿 notre style de jeu... il n'y a pas autant d'embranchements que dans un Deus Ex (mais il y en a 脿 l'issue de nos choix moraux), c'est vrai. Mais tout ce qu'on en attendait est bien l脿, il suffit finalement d'ouvrir les yeux. Bioshock, les game designers du monde entier n'ont pas fini d'en parler et d'en apprendre. De notre c么t茅, on n'a pas fini de le rejouer diff茅remment, ne manquant pas de sourire de toutes nos dents 脿 chaque plan qui se sera d茅roul茅 sans accroc. Bravo L茅vine, bravo 2K Boston / Australie : vous avez tout compris 脿 ce que c'est qu'un putain de bon jeu.

Grandiose, 茅pique, magistral, Bioshock est plus qu'un jeu, c'est une exp茅rience hors du commun. Lorsqu'un titre atteint un tel niveau de quasi-perfection, on ne peut que s'incliner tant les superlatifs paraissent bien incapables de d茅crire ce que l'on ressent. Chapeau bas.

Factornews (Sep 05, 2007)
Le monde des jeux vid茅o est rempli de suites faciles, de jeux sans 芒me exploitant toujours les m锚mes univers aux couleurs marrons-gris et utilisant les m锚mes m茅canismes de gameplay. Quand Bioshock sort, on ne peut qu鈥檃pplaudir. Irrational Games a d茅velopp茅 un jeu bourr茅 de bonnes id茅es, dans un monde fascinant, original et malsain, avec un bon sc茅nario et une narration intelligente, un gameplay tr猫s riche et des graphismes somptueux. La perfection n鈥檈st pas de ce monde mais avec Bioshock on s鈥檈n approche beaucoup. Alors il faut saluer l鈥檈ffort car un titre de cette trempe, on n鈥檈n reverra pas avant un bon bout de temps. C鈥檈st une exp茅rience unique et 茅motionnellement tr猫s forte.

Game Revolution (Aug 21, 2007)
Bioshock is that rare game where the plot, environment, and combat are all steps above the normal video game experience. Games at their very best, like this one, can create amazing alternative worlds for us to inhabit, doing those things we can't do in real life. This is one product the free market should be very happy to have.

Game Shark (Sep 11, 2007)
System Shock and its sequel are both regarded as two of the best and most influential games ever made. They also were duds in terms of sales. BioShock needs to sell well. It really does. It needs to restore my faith in the consumer, because if a game like this doesn鈥檛 sell鈥攁nd if BioShock ends up being yet another critically acclaimed game that the general public ignores then we鈥檙e all wasting our time writing reviews in the first place. Folks, this is just about as good as it gets.

videogamer.com (Aug 30, 2007)
To put it simply, BioShock is a brilliant game; one that sets the proverbial benchmark not only for first-person adventure titles, but also for all future games to come. And this is no flashing visit, with your stay in Rapture easily reaching 20+ hours if you don't rush through. But it's not just the fact that BioShock is a real looker, or the fact that as a first-person shooter alone it stands up to all of its competitors; it's the thought and craftsmanship that went into realising Rapture, its emotionally-jarring denizens and its compelling and seamless narrative that pushes you willingly forward from chapter-to-chapter.
100
A lot of critics are hailing Bioshock as a possible Game of the Year, and I am one of them. The former Irrational Games is back and better than ever. I鈥檓 just curious how life will be after Rapture.
100
These minor complaints mean very little in the end. There's nothing which will make you ever want to stop playing; you'll simply curse under your breath and get on with killing Splicers and hunting Little Sisters. There's also a core story which this review hasn't even touched on, and with good cause. 2K Games has remained notoriously tight-lipped on plot details and we'll do the same. But just what do those ghosts and surreal images which keep popping up mean? And what are those odd, chain-shaped tattoos on our protagonist's wrists? Could there be some deeper connection between the main character and Rapture than we are first led to believe? You'll have to discover these answers for yourself as you make your way through the murky depths and face the untold horrors of Rapture's darkest corners.

G4 TV: X-Play (Aug 23, 2007)
The gameplay itself should be enough to sell you on this game. If you were a fan of the original System Shock, or you really dug Deus Ex, then you should get a huge kick out of this game. But there鈥檚 so much else to admire. The art direction is outstanding; mixing art deco architecture, classic 1950鈥檚 graphic design and tons of great old music from the early jazz era that adds a musty creepiness to the overall atmosphere of the game. It鈥檚 definitely not your typical Space Marine fare, and that鈥檚 a very good thing. So if you really do believe in what the best games have to offer, then would you kindly play BioShock?

GamerDad (Aug 31, 2007)
Despite the 5-star score, Bioshock is not a perfect game. There are annoyances in the interface and problems with antivirus compatibility and installation activation woes, as well as a few weak moments in the narrative. But in terms of the actual gameplay these are very minor and do little to detract from an otherwise excellent experience. It is brutal, but not very hard as shooters go, so you don't even have to worry if your twitch gamer skills are up to snuff. Many people are calling this the best shooter since Half-Life 2 and comparins and contrasting the two. I think that is an excellent comparison because neither are particularly innovative in large terms but each delivers compelling narrative that is extremely polished and well done and changes the way you look at other games.

1UP (Sep 20, 2007)
So I have to admit: I got a little teary at the ending. I'm not telling you this to show you how deep I am or so that you can call me a sissy; I'm telling you simply 'cuz that's what happened. After turning me into a living arsenal for 20 hours, BioShock took about 15 seconds to utterly disarm me.

CanardPC (Sep 01, 2007)
Au bout de six pages, je n鈥檃i qu鈥檜ne seule et unique chose 脿 vous dire : achetez BioShock, m锚me si vous ne disposez pas encore d鈥檜n PC suffisamment puissant, m锚me si vous 锚tes 脿 30 euros pr猫s et que vous pr茅f茅reriez le choper plus tard en gamme budget. Le seul moyen d鈥檃voir d鈥檃utres titres de cette qualit茅, laissant loin derri猫re toute concurrence, c鈥檈st de montrer aux d茅cideurs, aux commerciaux dans les bureaux que l鈥檃udace, la qualit茅 et l鈥檌ntelligence payent. Alors, faites un effort qui fait plaisir.

With Bioshock, Irrational Games sat down, considered its work in System Shock 2, and essentially reproduced that game, removing the few flaws and adding about a cup and a half of awesome. As outstanding as System Shock 2 was, it occasionally failed to omit unnecessary words, while Bioshock is a study in elegance. Because of this, I鈥檓 being much harder on it; the better a game gets, the more harshly it must be judged. And since Bioshock is a really, really good game, it ought to go through the wringer.

Game Chronicles (Sep 13, 2007)
Whether you purchase the PC version or the Xbox 360 game you will be in for a treat for all the senses. BioShock is on the same par as those great classic films that have won awards for years and this one will for the video game industry. The combination of a great story and fantastic gameplay with wonderful scenery has been so well created into an all around well crafted game that it would be a shame to miss out on playing it.
100
Gameguru Mania (Sep 17, 2007)
Overall, BioShock is one of the best games ever made. Turn off the lights, crank up the volume, take your time and enjoy it. It's about the experience not the high score! I can easily say BioShock delivers the most rewarding and adrenaline-filled experience I have ever had with any action game!
100
GameSpy (Aug 24, 2007)
Those few PC quibbles aside, BioShock is a triumph, an absolute masterpiece that needs to be played by anyone with the slightest interest in gaming. It's a high-water mark not just for the FPS genre, but for the hobby in general. Since it's set at the bottom of the sea, it's perhaps ironic to say that it's the kind of game you want to soak in from start to finish and then play all over again. In the world of videogames, there's nothing to be more proud of.

Bit-Tech (Aug 21, 2007)
Important, gorgeous, dramatic? BioShock redefines what these words mean in the games industry, leaving past peaks like Half-Life 2 by the wayside. BioShock is quite simply a triumph that we cannot gush enough praise for. BioShock is, without exaggeration, the best experience I have ever had with a computer since I first got into games all those years ago with The Secret of Monkey Island. It is my new favourite game and the benchmark for all future titles.

Gamer 2.0 (Aug 20, 2007)
What is BioShock, then? It will challenge you, it will move you, and it will force you to make hard decisions. It is unbelievably immersive and tenaciously inventive. It is a game that sets the bar high for others to follow鈥攆or its art direction, narrative, and gameplay. It may very well be one of the best games to come out this year, and will surely be mentioned for a while to come. If you had doubts about how this game would deliver on its hype, you may now set yourself at ease. Irrational Games has delivered and then some. And you鈥檇 be a fool not to get your hands on this now.

Jolt (UK) (Sep 03, 2007)
Yet, that fear of an impending death never fades. The feeling of being watched, of being used, of being nothing but a pawn, balances perfectly with the game鈥檚 no-holds-barred approach to combat. It鈥檚 this mixture of ambience, emotion and plain old fun that sets BioShock apart from the scores of FPSes hitting the shelves this year. It鈥檚 neither perfect nor as revolutionary as some might make out, but it is one of the most progressive, gripping and downright fun games to hit the market in the last decade.
98
Video Game Generation (Sep 06, 2007)
From Plasmids to Tonics to weapon customization to researching enemies, BioShock鈥檚 grandeur is most apparent in the little things. Each game element and every level displays an inhuman amount of attention and detail, and I can imagine the sleepless nights the developers spent slaving away at their desks with only a dim light and caffeinated beverage keeping them company. Everything about BioShock speaks to its quality. In short, Bioshock takes players and makes them feel they are really in Rapture. The visuals, ambient noises, voices and story form a rusty hook that players will just love to run through their cheek.

GamingExcellence (Aug 27, 2007)
Stellar gameplay, graphics, audio, and cinematic narrative advance video game storytelling to a level you've never seen; moral choices have a huge impact on how the game is played; outstanding level design; incredible replay value; scary as hell; a deep upgrade system allows for RPG style character development within shooter-style gameplay; as much fun to watch as it is to play.

VGcore (Aug 24, 2007)
So what constitutes art? Well, no one can really answer that question. It is just one of those opinions that differ from person to person until a general consensus says that it is okay to define something as art. Sometimes it takes years for it to happen; sometimes a work will never be respected. All the elements are there in BioShock, and simply needs to be played and experienced to be truly appreciated. Arguments about art aside, it is one of the greatest shooters of all time, and a glimpse of just how far video games have come, if not where they are going to go.

Musz臋 przyzna膰, 偶e nie gra艂em w tak wy艣mienit膮 gr臋 od czas贸w pierwszego Half-Life. Bioshock powala, mia偶d偶y, zgniata i zabija wszystkie inne produkcje kilku ostatnich miesi臋cy. Klimat jest wspania艂y, grafika pi臋kna a d藕wi臋ki to uczta dla uszu. Je艣li nie macie zbyt mocnego sprz臋tu 偶eby uci膮gn膮膰 Bioshocka, to on sam jest pretekstem do zakupienia nowego komputera. Tego nie wolno przegapi膰! To trzeba prze偶y膰! Je艣li nie zagrasz w t臋 produkcj臋, drogi czytelniku, uwierz mi, wiele stracisz. Bioshock jest genialny!

IC-Games (Aug 22, 2007)
When summing up, especially with a game so highly praised, it鈥檚 very hard to convince the more cynical gamer that us journalists were not promised unimagined wealth for our recommendations. With a game like BioShock however it鈥檚 easy; the game simply sells itself regardless of what anyone says. Without doubt, BioShock is truly a next-gen masterpiece, more than worthy of your attention. It simply blows everything comparable out of the water and for now we challenge you to find otherwise.

Netjak (Sep 15, 2007)
Overall, BioShock is definitely worth a purchase. There simply isn鈥檛 a better experience to be had on the PC. Even if you don鈥檛 have a PC that can run BioShock, consider picking up the Xbox 360 version. But don鈥檛 fool yourself; BioShock isn鈥檛 the greatest shooter of all time. Go in knowing that and you鈥檒l absolutely love it. BioShock still has its flaws, but they pale in comparison to the entire package.

GameAlmighty.com (Aug 22, 2007)
Bioshock has got everything that a great triple-A title needs, and it鈥檚 got it in spades. Intense combat, amazing and deep story, beautiful graphics, awesome sound 鈥 yes please. Add to that the level of customization and the multiple endings, and you鈥檝e got something worth talking about. Is it a 10? Not quite, but it鈥檚 more than deserving of its spot as one of the highest scoring games at Game Almighty.
97
With so many things to do in Bioshock, it's a shame it is only 20 hours long. A game like this should be much longer, but you will immediately want to play the game over again to try and find everything. Bioshock could challenge every competitor this year for Game of the Year. With that being said, go out and buy this game, "Would you kindly?"

BioShock is geen shooter, noch rollenspel of survival-horrorgame: het is alledrie en veel, veel meer.

IGN (Aug 17, 2007)
BioShock is Irrational's finest offering to date, as well as the swan song for the Irrational brand in a way, since they recently relinquished their longstanding and well-established studio name for the more corporate, faceless tag of 2K Boston and 2K Australia. BioShock is a first-person shooter set in the fantastically unsettling city of Rapture, a metropolis built under the sea by the megalomaniacal Andrew Ryan. Throughout your lengthy stay, you'll find options for combat as intricate and enjoyable as the story and characters are to interpretation, something that only a handful of games can ever claim to offer.

Fragland.net (Sep 06, 2007)
There you have it. Bioshock is without a doubt the most immersive FPS currently available and the only slightly negative comments we can give are things that we won鈥檛 see in games for many years to come.

BioShock is an expertly crafted game in every respect, a truly worthy successor to what's considered one of the PC's greatest games, and a game that, we feel, will be a milestone in PC gaming. Never has the medium been used as a storytelling device in such a beautiful and engaging way, and never have we been drawn so deeply into a game world.

Cheat Code Central (Aug, 2007)
Ultimately, Bioshock is a blast and probably the best game I've played this year. Some of Bioshock's storytelling techniques are unprecedented and will perhaps set a new standard for storytelling excellence in gaming. It doesn't hurt that Bioshock's great story is framed by incredible visuals and solid controls as well. Overall, Bioshock is a game that you don't want to miss out on unless you're easily spooked.

Se possedete un pc "bello potente", potrete godervi un bellissimo gioco che vi regaler脿 ore di divertimento senza mai annoiarvi. Assolutamente da acquistare! Per i possessori di Xbox 360 questo problema per fortuna non si pone, regalando emozioni senza limiti, seppur con alcuni compromessi grafici rispetto alla controparte PC di fascia alta.

AusGamers (Aug 28, 2007)
This "intricate" story, ultimately, becomes the driving force behind moving through the game, which given how much there is to do within Rapture outside of the narrative, is an unbelievable feat. BioShock, for the sum of its parts, is easily the game of the year thus far and there seems to be very little - in my opinion - on the horizon as poignant as this to derail it from that perch. Beyond 2007, I can't foresee a gameplay experience as rich, balanced and robust as this. BioShock really is the game "that keeps on giving" thanks largely to the fully realised game-world and the incredible marriage between interacting with it, its denizens and your accrued weapons and abilities, but beyond all of this, the experience is so much more worth it for the incredible narrative, story and pacing. An absolutely masterful piece of game design and a title that further proves games are fast becoming art and not just a pastime for kids or so called nerds or geeks.
95
YouGamers (Aug 28, 2007)
Bioshock is nothing if not entirely engrossing. An example of perfect narrative pacing, the game has intense combat with a unique weapon system. The story pulls you in and doesn't let go, and user choices help to drive the plot. No detail was left untouched in making the game a cohesive and polished finished product. While it's not a genre-busting pioneer, the gameplay in BioShock won't disappoint.
95
Gamernode (Aug 20, 2007)
BioShock is all about placing yourself in a wonderful, heavily detailed environment filled with memorable characters, cool enemies, and creepy atmospheres reminiscent of an HP Lovecraft tale. If you're looking for another run 'n gun game to play while you chug down a few Cokes, you'll probably be better off not picking BioShock up. If you want a good game you can play in the dark, immerse yourself in, and love well-crafted plots and great writing, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't go get BioShock tomorrow morning. (Unless you don't have the money - that's a good reason). It's exactly what we all said it would be, and that's a very rare feat to accomplish.
95
GameZone (Sep 04, 2007)
BioShock is one of those games that truly make a strong case for video games as a proper art form. The world is as robust and detailed as anything you鈥檒l see in a movie (if not more so), and the sense of suspense never wears out, keeping you on board for a thrill ride from beginning to end. No gamer should miss out on this one.
95
No importa que haya sufrido una serie de retrasos. Tampoco importa que salga al mercado a un precio ligeramente superior a otros juegos de PC (pero m谩s barato que la versi贸n de Xbox 360, para aquellos que posean ambos sistemas). Ni siquiera que s贸lo ofrezca un trabajado modo historia. Bioshock es un juego innovador, inteligente y trascendental, que promueve la creatividad del jugador para enfrentarse a los habitantes de Rapture y con una de las mejores ambientaciones jam谩s experimentadas. Un juego llamado a convertirse en una nueva referencia en el g茅nero y nuevo modelo a seguir. Ya todos los seguidores de los shooters anhelamos con ansias una expansi贸n del mismo o el anuncio de una posible secuela, aunque por el momento tendremos que esperar.

TTGamer (Aug 30, 2007)
The atmosphere, the story, the unique execution of the gameplay, the fact it never feels like a console port; everything on offer here is top notch 'PC Game of the Year' grade stuff that, like the System Shock series before it, should be in every PC gamer's collection. The difference this time around, however, is that thanks to the efforts of 2KGames and the more pre-release aware gaming world we live in, BioShock has a real chance of actually achieving this. If there is a game out there seeing release in 2007 across any genre that can top this truly spectacular unique experience, then we may have the best year ever for PC gaming on our hands, because BioShock is really just that good. There is some room for improvement for any future sequel to make this series truly epic, but make no mistake, you must go and get BioShock, even if it means a stop by the PC store for an upgrade first.

2404.org PC Gaming (Apr 19, 2008)

PC Gamer UK (Aug 16, 2007)
Regardless, BioShock is a dark and astonishing masterpiece. It might not be as flawless as Half-Life 2, but it bites off so much more and accomplishes it all magnificently. Even if you've soaked up every preview and trailer with relish, you haven't scratched the surface of how deep this unsettling meditation on hubris and insanity actually goes.

De mani猫re g茅n茅rale, Bioshock profite de l'une des meilleures bandes-son qu'on ait entendue depuis des lustres. Entre vieux jazz crachot茅 sur d'antiques haut-parleurs et th猫mes symphoniques, se glissent les chuchotements ou les hurlements des chrosomes et le son de l'eau, omnipr茅sente dans le jeu. De plus, si on aurait tendance 脿 penser qu'une cit茅 sous-marine manque de vari茅t茅 architecturale, on se trompe, du coeur 茅nerg茅tique de la ville 脿 son march茅 en passant par une for锚t l'alimentant en oxyg猫ne ou encore son quartier de loisirs, Rapture est vaste et riche. C'est d茅j脿 un petit bonheur d'explorer pour admirer, mais chacun y trouvera son compte. En farfouillant, vous tomberez sur quantit茅 de journaux enregistr茅s, de comptes-rendus et autres mines d'informations sur le monde de Rapture, souvent en rapport avec sa d茅ch茅ance racont茅e par des hommes et des femmes aux r锚ves bris茅s.

BioShock ist ein Meisterwerk. Es ist nicht die Revolution der Ego-Shooter; es hat kleine inszenatorische sowie technische Schw盲chen und es stellt in Anbetracht Levines fr眉herer Werke nicht einmal eine Erweiterung seiner warnenden Vision dar. Aber es befreit ein Genre, das sich oft den Vorwurf der Gewaltverherrlichung gefallen lassen musste, von dem Vorurteil, diese zum Selbstzweck zu erheben. BioShock gelingt die Gratwanderung, Ausbr眉che von Gewalt ebenso unausweichlich wie moralisch verwerflich darzustellen - sowohl spielerisch als auch erz盲hlerisch. Dabei schafft es Irrational, dem Spieler mit wenigen Knopfdr眉cken eine endlose Anzahl an M枚glichkeiten beim Erforschen der Welt und beim Erledigen seines Auftrags in die H盲nde zu legen.

Bioshock 猫 un manifesto artistico vibrante, a volte commovente e in estrema sintesi poetico: la vicenda emozionale, studiata in maniera magistrale, va a braccetto con una magnificenza estetica talmente apprezzabile che sarebbe un peccato non ricorrere a qualche upgrade del proprio PC. Tecnica e sostanza si mescolano in un cocktail da brivido destinato a palati fini, che nessuno, prima d鈥檕ggi, aveva saputo sintetizzare con tanta capacit脿. Trascurabili le piccole sbavature di game design: l鈥檈ccellenza assoluta 猫 a un passo e nessun altro FPS potr脿 evitare di fare i conti con la creatura di Irrational. La nota finale di merito va alla localizzazione, davvero eccellente: il doppiaggio, in particolare, presenta voci note facili a riconoscersi, ma ancor pi霉 ad essere apprezzate.

Whatever the reason though, this adventure at the bottom of the sea is one of the most extraordinary experiences you will ever come across. And for those who will think that the fate of one of the main characters is disappointing or downright stupid, consider this: 鈥濧 man chooses. A slave obeys.鈥

We could carry on writing this review for ever, such is the richness of this game, the sheer amount of stuff to see, the hacking of security systems, the touching interplay between Big Daddies and Little Sisters, the list just goes on. No, instead imagine a game with the wit and believable characters of Half Life 2, the moral choices and weapon/skill pallet of Deus Ex and the unique and complete universe of STALKER. Imagine a game that is greater than the sum of all those parts, and you have Bioshock!

Yes folks, we have played BioShock and we loved it. The minor flaws in the game's design didn't keep us from having an all night session to get to the end and we think that will be your conclusion as well. It's still mid August but it's going to be tough to find a game that will match BioShock for fun, originality and visual style in 2007. We will be waiting to see if any other game released this year will come close to it.

Without a doubt, BioShock is a shoe-in for hordes of Game of the Year nominations. It鈥檚 certainly among my favorite titles of the year, and I highly recommend it to all gamers, whether you鈥檝e got an Xbox 360 or a gaming PC. If you haven鈥檛 played it yet, then I suggest you at least go out and give the demo a try.

Bioshock ist be盲ngstigend gut, perfektionistisch durchgestylt und k眉hn in Set und Setting. Welches andere Spiel traut sich als Umgebung eine Unterwasser-Stadt im 50er-Jahre-Ambiente zu? Hoffentlich achtet das Publikum diesen Einfallsreichtum. Ich bef眉rchte, dass sich nicht jeder von der Thematik angezogen f眉hlt. Wer Bioshock ausl盲sst, verpasst jedenfalls gro脽es Entertainment. Die Grafik rangiert am Anschlag des derzeit Machbaren, der Spielablauf ist mit 脺berraschungen am laufenden Band gespickt, und die Story regt mit ihren gesellschaftskritischen Ans盲tzen zum Nachdenken an. So sehr ich auch suche, mir will nichts Schlechtes auffallen. Dass das Hacken von elektronischen Ger盲ten zum No-Brainer wird und sich das Spielkonzept zum Ende hin abnutzt 鈥 alles zu vernachl盲ssigende Negativgr枚脽en.

Man nehme die Geschichte von Captain Nemo und kombiniere sie mit dem New York der Sechzigerjahre 鈥 fertig ist das Endzeitszenario von Bioshock. Durch die hohe k眉nstliche Intelligenz der Computer-Charaktere und die vielen interaktiven Objekte ist es den Programmieren gelungen, eine in sich abgeschlossene, lebendige Welt zu erschaffen. Und die wirkt genauso anziehend wie das monatliche Playmate: Es ist nahezu unm枚glich, die Maus beiseitezulegen, bevor nicht der Abspann vor der Nase l盲uft. Das dauert knapp 25 Stunden, wenn Sie ohne Hektik und bei mittlerem Schwierigkeitsgrad daddeln. Ein Wahnsinns-Spiel!

Wie niet te beroerd is om een confrontatie op een andere manier dan met brute vuurkracht op te lossen, zin heeft in een dijk van een verhaal en niet bang is van een onwaarschijnlijk beklemmend verhaal met morele keuzes en tonnen sfeer, zal aan BioShock - wat de pc-versie betreft zeker na een patch of twee 鈥 een instant-klassieker binnenhalen.

Zelden heb ik de laatste jaren een game gespeeld waarbij ik vanaf het begin tot het einde geboeid zat te spelen. Dit spel doet dingen met je, het raakt je. Het verhaal raakt je, de sfeer raakt je, zelfs een Little Sister doden raakt je. Als we puur kijken naar de vormgeving en de artisitieke hand van BioShock, dan zitten we toch heel dicht tegen perfectie aan. De manier waarop 2K Boston de onderwaterstad Rapture tot leven heeft gebracht is werkelijk abnormaal goed te noemen. De Art Deco-stijl, gecombineerd met de geheel in jaren '50 stijl geluid en muziek en je almaar boeiende ontdekkingsreis door Rapture geeft je een wervelende speelervaring.

Worth Playing (Sep 01, 2007)
While not exactly perfect, Bioshock is not to be missed. From the superb visual design to the enchanting audio soundtrack, this futuristic period piece is a delight to play and accomplishes a rare feat for a video game: It leaves you with plenty of weighty existential questions to think about.

Game Captain (Aug 31, 2007)
BioShock ist der erwartete Kracher und hat mit dem Big Daddy und der Little Sister zwei unvergessliche Charaktere geschaffen. Optisch und akustisch ist das Spiel eine Wucht. Wassereffekte waren bisher nie so schick in Szene gesetzt und Musik wurde selten so passend zur Stimmung eingesetzt. Mit den vielen unterschiedlichen Plasmiden und Tonika ergeben sich etliche M枚glichkeiten einen Kampf anzugehen. Wer statt dessen auf knallharte Action steht, der greift zu den aufr眉stbaren Bleispritzen, muss daf眉r jedoch viel Geld in Munition investieren und mit h盲rteren Gefechten rechnen. Doch bekanntlich ist kein Spiel perfekt. Die Wechsel zwischen Plasmid und Waffe ist etwas fummelig, das Minispiel nicht ganz ausgereift und eine gr枚脽ere Gegnervielfalt h盲tte der Abwechslung gut getan. Nichtsdestotrotz ist BioShock ein grandioser Shooter, zwar keine Revolution im Genre, aber dennoch ein Spiel, dass jeder gespielt haben sollte und mein pers枚nlicher Anw盲rter auf das Spiel des Jahres ist.

Game Over Online (Sep 04, 2007)
Fortunately, all these flaws do is put a minor blemish on a well-formed diamond. This metaphor is a bit more meaningful than usual. BioShock is one of the best games of 2007 for any platform, not so much because it offers new wonders - there are a few - but as a result of meeting high standards, as any diamond should. For its price of admission, BioShock will definitely please you.

Gamezoom (Sep 02, 2007)
Der Hype um Doom 3 war gigantisch, doch schlussendlich konnte der Horror-Shooter nur bedingt 眉berzeugen. Bei Bioshock sieht es da ganz anders aus, denn in diesem Game erwartet dem Spieler nicht nur eine dichte Atmosph盲re und gut erz盲hle Storylinie, sondern auch eine bombastische Grafik gepaart mit einer hervorragenden Soundkulisse. 脺ber die kleinen Macken wie das 枚de Hackfeature oder die weniger abwechslungsreichen Gegnerklassen kann man getrost hinwegsehen. Nach Half Life 2 und Far Cry ist der neue Shooter aus dem Hause Take 2 eine weitere 鈥濭enreperle鈥, welche in keinem Spieleregel fehlen sollte.

It's here and in stores! BioShock, the first big game of the second half of 2007, is here on Xbox 360 and PC. I've already reviewed the Xbox 360 version of the game, and from a non-technical standpoint all the great music, action, and RPG choices to make are here here. Unfortunately, so are all the problems that you see in many major PC game releases including crashes, copy protection issues for legitimate buyers, and performance iffiness for computers closer to the minimum spec.

Gamezone (Germany) (Sep 04, 2007)
Peter Grubmair麓s Fazit:Was Irrational Games hier mit BioShock auf die Beine gestellt hat darf man ungestraft als Kunstwerk bezeichnen. Rapture erwacht in diesem Spiel zu virtuellem Leben, welches uns innerhalb k眉rzester Zeit in seinen Bann zieht. Und dabei stellt es uns eine moralische Frage nach der anderen, l盲sst uns st盲ndig gr眉beln ob wir auch richtig handeln und nicht zuletzt bleibt der Zweifel ob wir nicht selbst genau so verabscheuungsw眉rdig sind wie die Adam abh盲ngigen Bewohner von Rapture oder dessen gr枚脽enwahnsinnig gewordenen F眉hrer. Denn wir bek盲mpfen Feuer mit Feuer, und wissen doch so wenig 眉ber die wahren Hintergr眉nde der Verantwortlichen. BioShock stellt ein herrliches St眉ck Unterhaltungssoftware f眉r erwachsene Spieler dar, welche nicht nur mit der Technik klotzt, sondern auch alle psychischen Register zieht und deswegen mehr Eindruck hinterl盲sst als ein Spielfilm.

Gamesmania.de (Sep 10, 2007)
Ja, auch Bioshock hat seine M盲ngel und das 脺berspiel ist es letztlich auch nicht geworden, dazu h盲ngt das Spiel nach den ersten imposanten Stunden ein wenig zu oft durch. Dennoch hat mich seit Half-Life 2 kein Shooter mehr derart in seinen Bann gezogen. Grafik, Sound und das Setting sind einfach top und erzeugen gemeinsam die wohl beste Atmosph盲re, die es in einem Videospiel je gab. Ich pers枚nlich h盲tte mich zwar 眉ber ein etwas eigenwilligeres Gameplay gefreut, doch f眉r die Verkaufszahlen ist der traditionelle Shooterpart vermutlich die bessere Wahl gewesen. An ein Half-Life 2 kommt Bioshock aber ohnehin nicht ganz heran, Valves Meisterwerk bietet auf Dauer mehr Abwechslung und die spannendere Story.
90
Ultimately, BioShock takes us on a ride full of varied and physical combat, well-handled plot exposition, and absolutely excellent graphics and setting, gives us a weak final section and then leaves us. Whilst there may be no multiplayer, and that final section is irritating, BioShock nevertheless makes quick work of 2007's weaker shooters like STALKER and provides one of this year's best experiences on any platform.
90
Boomtown (Sep 17, 2007)
Regardless of these flaws, large or small, Bioshock remains a wonderful game in so many ways. The graphics and art direction, the slow unveiling of the story of Rapture鈥檚 fall, the sheer creepiness of it all, and the gameplay which, quite often, makes almost every shooter until now seem rather dull in comparison.
90
Daily Game (Aug 22, 2007)
The atmosphere, high-level concept, graphics and audio are all phenomenal, and they more than make up for occasionally repetitive gameplay. You owe it to yourself to experience BioShock, by far one of the most compelling games of 2007
90
Minor flaws - so long as you treat them as such. BioShock could be bigger, it could be more exhaustive and it could be more varied. But it isn't, nor does it try to be. BioShock is a sublimely crafted, beautifully written and staggeringly enjoyable action game that, aside from a few small blips, stands head and shoulders above the majority of its peers. It's a resounding statement of what the medium is capable of, and - outside the world of Gordon Freeman, at least - you'd be hard-pressed to find much better.

Para quem aprecia a divers茫o eletr么nica, "Bioshock" 茅 daqueles t铆tulos que precisa ser conhecido. No meio de tantas seq眉锚ncias - algumas memor谩veis como "Half-Life 2" e a s茅rie "Metal Gear Solid" - algo totalmente novo j谩 茅 gratificante. No entanto, ver uma franquia nova que consegue cativar atrav茅s da narrativa e experi锚ncia 茅 uma d谩diva. N茫o 茅 livre de defeitos. Quem procura um aut锚ntico FPS (First Person Shooter) talvez tor莽a o nariz pela dificuldade amena e pela complexidade do sistema de armas, que garante variedade, mas n茫o necessariamente privilegia reflexos. Ali谩s, "Bioshock" nem deve ser comparado a outros jogos do g锚nero. A vis茫o em primeira pessoa atua como recurso extra para aumentar ainda mais a imers茫o. Rapture 茅 um fant谩stico universo e merece ser visto com os pr贸prios olhos, mesmo que virtuais. N茫o pense duas vezes em mergulhar de cabe莽a.

Trying to usurp System Shock II in the scary stakes is no easy feat, and whilst Bioshock doesn't quite manage to replicate the fear I remember in 1999, it does have its moments. Plenty of times I found myself eager to progress, but at the same time, terrified to take a step further in fear of what lay ahead. Bioshock does deranged very well, from start-to-finish it's a veritable freak-fest, yet deals with sensitive subjects such as the deluded Adam addiction that Rapture has fallen into, the concepts of greed and corruption even in a utopian society.

Gamigo (Aug 28, 2007)
Dass Bioshock trotzdem eine knappe 90er Wertung einheimst, liegt haupts盲chlich an der Atmosph盲re. Besonders die ersten Spielstunden vergehen beim Rundgang durch Rapture wie im Fluge, 眉berall findet man interessante Details. Die herausragende Technik tut ihr 脺briges daf眉r, dass Bioshock ein erstklassiger Ego-Shooter mit kleinem Rollenspielpart geworden ist. Ob das letztlich zum Titel Spiel des Jahres reicht, wage ich aber zu bezweifeln, da mit Crysis das spielerisch vermutlich etwas gehaltvollere Spiel noch in den Startl枚chern steht. Dennoch sollte jeder Zocker Bioshock gespielt haben.
90
GameSpot (Aug 22, 2007)
While on the surface it might look like little more than a very pretty first-person shooter, BioShock is much, much more than that. Sure, the action is fine, but its primary focus is its story, a sci-fi mystery that manages to feel retro and futuristic at the same time, and its characters, who convey most of the story via radio transmissions and audio logs that you're constantly stumbling upon as you wander around. All of it blends together to form a rich, interesting world that sucks you in right away and won't let go until you've figured out what, exactly, is going on in the undersea city of Rapture.

PC Powerplay (Aug 29, 2007)
Statt Bioshock h盲tten die Entwickler das Ding einfach "Atmosp盲hre" nennen sollen. Einfach Wahnsinn, wie es von seiner morbiden Grundstimmung lebt, in Szene gesetzt von 盲sthetisch 眉berragender Grafik und gruseligem Sound. Hier ist kein einziger Gang einfach nur eine schnell zu durchhetzende Verbindung zur n盲chsten Feindeshorde. Stattdessen bef盲llt mich alle f眉nf Meter die Paranoia, wenn Schreie, Gejammer und Gemurmel aus nicht einsehbaren Ecken an mein Ohr dringen. So perfekt Bioshock auch in Szene gesetzt ist: Spielerisch kann es keine neuen Ma脽st盲be setzen. Mir pers枚nlich macht das aber gar nichts, der starke Action-Adventure-Einschlag entspricht genau meinen W眉nschen. Sozusagen der perfekte Shooter f眉r all diejenigen, die eigentlich keine Shooter m枚gen.
88
Out Of Eight (Sep 13, 2007)
If you like single player first person shooters, then BioShock is a good one to play. BioShock makes the shooter experience deeper than the typical game, due to the successful blend of varied weapons, ammunition, spells, and power-ups. The setting is very memorable and distinctive, unlike all of those World War II games. While experienced players might fund BioShock to be too easy, the difficulty level makes the game appeal to a much larger audience. The various strategies you can employ, coupled with the Big Daddy battles, elevate BioShock above the rest of the pack. Unfortunately, the game doesn鈥檛 come with multiplayer and the copy protection scheme is extremely annoying and restrictive. Still, most fans of first person shooters or simply games in general will find a unique and fun experience.

Von der ersten Sekunde zieht Bioshock den Spieler in seinen Bann und l盲sst ihn f眉r viele Stunden bis zum unerwarteten grandiosen Finale nicht mehr los.

Mygamer.com (Nov 21, 2007)
Overall we were deeply impressed with Bioshock for the PC, but do wish that the developers had made available the toolkit used in its construction - I shiver contemplating what the fan community could make from its art and building resources. Unfortunately, like many PC/Game System hybrids, such extensibility is sorely limited, and hurts the game's replay value. Still, we think that fans of the FPS genre who crave a good dose of story and fear will enjoy Bioshock, at least for the first play-through.
85
Games Finder (Mar 23, 2014)
BioShock walks the fine line between FPS and RPG and has plenty for fans of both genres. While the RPG features aren鈥檛 overly deep the atmosphere the game creates and the combat flexibility more than makes up for it.
85
Even with its lack in enemy variety and weak difficulty, Bioshock makes for a must play single player adventure. The story is just too damn intriguing to pass up. It doesn鈥檛 matter if the battles start to feel redundant, because you will be too compelled to find out what is happening in this lost city of Rapture. And if the difficulty bothers you that much, there have been mods created that enhance the difficulty greatly, making it a very difficult game indeed. Let鈥檚 just hope that an expansion will allow for a multiplayer mode. How fun would it be to freeze your friends and send a Big Daddy after them?

Bioshock est un jeu qui fera date, par sa r茅alisation un cran au dessus de tout ce qui existe, mais aussi par son ambiance malsaine servie par un sc茅nario dense refusant fondamentalement les lieux communs.

Edge (Aug 30, 2007)
BioShock offers a lot of quality beyond the problems that exist within it. But its a game of if only. If only the mechanics matched the atmosphere. If only Rapture was a less linear world to move through. If only BioShock was the wholly brilliant experience you know, from your moments within it, it could have been.
80
Game Critics (Sep 12, 2007)
The entire game even carries with it a none-too-subtle critique on Ayn Rand's Objectivist philosophy鈥擱yan's staunch adherence to individualism and rationality is both the genius of Rapture and its ultimate downfall. But regardless of whether players agree with鈥攐r even pay attention to鈥攖he game's philosophical underpinnings, there's still a great deal of humanity in the storyline with well-developed characters and clever plot twists. It's unfortunate that much of it is merely wrapping though; the combat, the role-playing, and the morality all could have been much better fleshed out to create a truly inspired work of art, but ultimately they feel incomplete. But while BioShock's gameplay may not be as evolutionary as Andrew Ryan would have made it, its dramatic storytelling and imaginative vision still elevate it above its more primitive peers.
70
This is a very fun game and has a great story behind it. It鈥檚 definitely not for kids or the faint of heart. I wish there was an option for enabling swear and gore filters. I also wasn鈥檛 too comfortable dealing with the little girls in this game, which might be compounded by having two young girls of my own. The multiple endings and various difficulty levels add to the game play since there is no multiplayer. The pretty visuals make me look forward to other games using Unreal Engine 3 coming out soon.
