Reece grabs his scuba gear and swims down to the fantastic city of Rapture in BioShock

Well here it is. The review most have been waiting for. BioShock. One of the greatest games of the summer, and possibly the year.

“As you will already no doubt know BioShock has become the icon of discussion for the majority of gamers. If you have not already picked up a copy of the game feel free to stop reading here and run out to the stores, I can already inform you it will not be a mistake (that is a lot of confidence).

Bioshock begins right off the bat with a fantastic introduction. Flying in the dead of night you soon find that the plane is taking a detour straight for the ocean. Worry not however because you will survive this plummet into the sea, after a quick struggle you are at the surface surrounded by flames. Flames roaring all around, water splashing onto the camera, waves roaring in the deep sea, a thick smoke fills the air… and then you realise, the cutscene has ended and you are now in control. Instantly the water and fire effects will leave your speechless as they are without a doubt the most impressive you have yet to come across. You come to your senses, take control and head towards the only light that will not seriously burn you; a light emitting from a lighthouse in the distance attracts you to investigate. Whilst it is obvious that this is not the smartest decision, you have little choice.”
