With Bioshock 2 not too far on the horizon it's about time you got hold of a copy of the original if you have somehow missed out up until now.
Virtually everywhere seems to be sold out at the moment but luckily Shop To, who are offering the best deal, still have the title in stock. They are asking £9.85 for Bioshock, which compares very favourably to the next best price of £14.99 from Play, giving you a fiver saving.
Set in an alternative 1960, the game welcomes the player into the cold embrace of underwater art deco dystopia Rapture. The city is a crumbling ruin, filled with addled "splicers" and the menacing and mysterious Big Daddys. In order to survive and find your way back to civilisation you must confront the secrets of this once great metropolis.
Still my favourite game of the current generation, I cannot recommend Bioshock highly enough. It offers a superb and well balanced mix of first shooter and action adventure gameplay with an incredibly satisfying combat system and enjoyable system for skill progression and customisation. The voice acting and visual presentation are excellent
Most of all, it is the gripping storyline that will keep you playing long after you promised yourself "just five more minutes". The mystery is perfectly pitched and unravels at just the right pace, introducing you to some of the most twisted and memorable characters you will come across in a video game. In the end though, it was the alluring and macabre character of Rapture itself that stayed with me, long after the credits had rolled and the final truth was revealed.
