Here's a peek at BioShock's first two areas:



Rapture is a huge underwater city, and we have seen only brief glimpses at a few corridors and hallways so far, in screenshots and trailers. Currently, we know that Rapture includes seven “decks,” with multiple levels and many different environments spanning each deck.



Fans have been clamoring for a more in-depth look inside Rapture, rather than single screenshots or gameplay videos that often center around only one or two rooms. And while we don’t want to spoil the fun of exploring the city during the game, Irrational has come up with walkthrough videos of two of the first areas in BioShock.



’m not sure what’s more haunting about this first video. The wreckage of what was once so clearly an absolutely astounding structure and society, or the quick flashes of the inhabitants surrounded by some of the creepiest sounds I’ve ever heard in-game.



Here, we trespass into the Medical Pavilion of Rapture, where genetic marvels have spiraled out of control into a maze of horrors. Again, the quick glimpses of the workers and patients of the Medical Pavilion definitely leave you wanting to know more about the story behind these people, but make you hesitant to ask, for fear of what you will leave. I’m sure the farther we travel through the decks of Rapture, the more we’ll want to turn on our heels and run, but as the old saying goes – Curiosity killed the cat.</div>

I didn't say the graphics are dull, I said the gameplay is. Looks like something that I'd get bored of in about 10 minutes. As for the scenery though, well, it's just too grim for my taste... Actually no, I take that back. GoW is grim and I love the game for it. This game's just ugly. Plain and short.

New details for BioShock have been revealed from the July 2007 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly's (EGM).


<div class="bbcode_quote">
<div class="bbcode_quote_head">Quote:</div>
<div class="bbcode_quote_body">- Predicted to be 25 hours long for those who take it slow.

- Rapture labeled as a "city where the artist would not be censored, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, where the great would not be constrained by the small".

- Bioshock never forces you to backtrack.

- Enemies wander around rapture, looking for Adam. They will react to sounds, so be stealthy!

- Enemies spawn in a different place everytime.

- The Splicer enemies always know when they're dieing, and will rush to a medical kit once near death.

- In each section of Rapture, there are three Big Daddies to take out.

- There are two options once you have the Little Sister to yourself. You can harvest them, killing the girl and getting lots of Adam, or saving her and getting a little.

- Little Sisters are invincible until the point you harvest them.

- You can eventually get a camera and you can use it to research enemy weaknesses. Snapping different shots will get you more points. With enough points, you can earn bonuses against different Splicers.

- A white hat and a black hat - Atlas wants you to harvest all the little sisters, so you can power up your character and get his family out of Rapture, while Tenenbaum wants you to save the Little Sisters, who are his creation.

- Adam is used at Gatherers' Gardens to buy different plasmids (powers) and gene tonics (character-tweaking substances).

- Any contraption, minus the Gatherer's Gardens, can be hacked into and turned into something that benefits you. E.G, you can hack a medical station to poison Splicers when they come for health.

- You can build custom Plasmids and customize your weapons.</div>

Its not just the art direction It seems that the textures have a lot to be desired and the way the water looks when it reacts to the environment is well odd. When you watch the water splash up it looks 2d. I know I am going to be alone on this argument :P.

Re: The Official BioShock Thread



of course the PC will look much better, However it's amazing what they did on the 360.



Demo impressions:



- Was ok didn't like the minigame for Hacking the Gun turret's

- Slicer singing to a gun in a baby carriage -Priceless

- Love how you were brought into Rapture

- Was kind of lame at the starts saying " My parents said I was special, I know I am special"

- Creep factor was great. Specially at the end of the Demo when Splicers were trying to break in.

- Grab a bottle of vodka and your vision gets blurry. Grab a pack of Smokes and your vision gets smoky. This been done before, Still a nice touch.

- Music was great, Graphics are amazing love the art style

- They should have let us battle one Big Daddy. When you get to make the choice about little Sisters Demo should have ended their.

- Use of Plasmids and how you use them is great. First run though wasn't using that much.

- Hit detection was a bit off at certain times. I hit a splicer dead on with Lighting and it wasn't affected by it.

- Little Sister very creep, When she was harvesting the adam from the dead body she kept singing that children's song.

- Big Daddy was a beast when he took out the Splicer



btw can you hack the security camera in the demo? Didn't see any way you could hack it. I know full version you can.

Yea you can hack the video camera. Just get under it and look up untill it says X to hack. The hacking game was just about impossible so i just pay for it. At that part where all the splicers come in. Hack the video camera, the security bot, and the turrent in the bathroom then just chill in the bathroom and you dont have to do a thing.

oh well that's just picking nits IMHO, water physics is not something that is easy to pull off.



your entitled to your opinion, no biggy there, as long as you dont try to force it on to others or judge others for their own opinion.

this is pretty random but, I found this out while watching the Full Metal Alchemist Movie. You meet a guy named Fritz Lang who, in real life created a silent film called Metropolis and the city looks alot like Rapture. IDK, I didn't read into it so I don't know the story behind Metropolis just thought it was pretty cool how similar the cities look.

You have to buy more slots at the garden Machine. head to swap bank to swap out certain plasmids for others. You don't get a chance to upgrade slots until your about 3 to 4 hours in. Around 3rd or 4th Big Daddy.

BioShock is amazing game no doubt about that. Few annoying bugs and glitches they need to patch(I know theirs already a title update which caused most of the newer bugs).



Story is not as flushed out as it should be. Mainly in the last 10 Minutes. That part reminds me of a cheap SciFi flick. Don't even get me started on the horrible endings. I know Kevin Levin wasn't happy with the ending ether.
