Pros: Nice looking graphics...at least for a while.
Cons: It's a shooter with no autoaim or mouse support. Downright annoying soundtrack that repeats so frequently that you will be tired of it before the install completes. Weapons are cartoonish at best.
Summary: Bioshock is an OK game. My mistake was to play it after putting 60 hours into Fallout 3. All Bioshock's good points - of which there are some - are in Fallout but Fallout much improves upon them. It's just far too linear and repetitive.
Summary: I purchased this on the back of the rave reviews and rewards the game received. Refreshing and original setting? Unique-ish storyline? Yes! However, I really could not get into the game at all.
Excerpt: Bioshock is not one of my highest ranked games but it is an intresting and different game. It is a horror shooter game set in alternate history 1960 when you play the role of a suvior of a plane crash now the game is all about surviving and is challenging.
I'm in a minority...but I think it's very overrated

Summary: I know that most people here will disagree, but I found Bioshock a real chore to play. I'm not a hardcaore gamer, but I love FPS horror games, and this lacked one important characteristic - it wasn't fun to play. There are a number of things wrong with this game, in my view.
Summary: I couldn't get into this and found it tiresome. Nice graphics don't make a game. The Big Daddies are too hard. You end up attacking them, then they kill you, then you regenerate, then you attack them some more, then they kill you and after perhaps more repetition you kill them.
Summary: In terms of atmosphere, graphics and imagination this game is amongst the best. Unfortunately, the game is severely hampered by the gameplay which soon becomes annoying and repetitive. Although the story is good, it is very difficult to care as it is hard to feel empathy for any of the characters.
