Bioshock - And Now For Something Much Less

This episode is inspired by:

Quick Review:

Bioshock is a first-person shooter with enhanced abilities, set in a fantastical underground society gone awry.

This is an excellent looking game, with superior graphic & sound designs which immerses the player in a rich atmosphere. Fights are swift and violent (and extremely brutal if a Big Daddy gets too close to you). Enemies are plentiful and creepy. Controls are tight and the gameplay is very enjoyable.

There are faults with the game, but they are relatively minor; The game does not break much new ground. But what Bioshock does, it does quite well.

Recommended for everyone prepared for a moody, violent afternoon of polished gameplay.

I liked Bioshock up to the end. Then I realized it would have been simpler just to flood the entire city as soon as I stepped off the boat.

It would have saved me from accidentally smoking so many cigarettes. No wonder this game was rated M!

I never understood why so many explosives and high-powered weapons were so readily available in a glass jar at the bottom of the ocean.

Artist's Notes

Here's another case of what I could have done differently… I should have stayed with Bioshock longer. It was one of my favorite games that year, and yet I did one full strip and then jumped to one of my most disappointing games of the year. Younger me, what was your excuse???
