BIOSHOCK IS SIMPLY AMAZING!

I have played video games (almost) my entire life.
From my beginnings as an arcade junkie, through various consoles (NES, SUPER NES, Sega Genesis, PS1, Sega Saturn, Gamecube, and now an Xbox360, not to mention various PC titles ranging from Wolfenstein, DOOM, Quake, Half-Life, and the like...I've played my fair share of games.
Hundreds...no...I'd say its safe to say I've played over 1000 different video games in my life (at least).

I'm into all sort of video games, from strategy to puzzle, RPG to racing, but my all-time favorite type of video game is the "first-person shooter".
I've pretty much played them all and love COD4, Half-Life 2, Halo 3, and many of the current-gen titles, but I must say that Bioshock was a real surprize of an awesome game, and stands up with any of them.
(I liked it better than Gears of War, and I REALLY liked Gears Of War).

I read a review in Game Informer magazine about Halo 3 and it got a 10.
In the same issue Bioshock got a 10 and I was more than curious about the title. I recently (right before New Years) bought and played through this game...TWICE!
Seriously...I finished the game and obviously got the "bad ending" and started a new game seconds after I beat it.

I became quickly obsessed with this game and this brand new underwater world that I had discovered.
It has depth and is gloriously detailed, and the storytelling is unlike any game I've ever played. It's part shooter/part sci-fi mystery movie!

Right before I bought this game I played and beat COD4 and I must say
that really is a great game as well, but I've only played through and beaten COD4 once since I added it to my collection.

I beat Bioshock and HAD to instantly start playing it again and wanted the "good ending" so badly, I could taste it.
Upon doing so I discovered that I had missed many hidden areas and rooms within this huge frickin' game.
I basically played it "like a shooter", but upon replay I played it in a more relaxed style and took my time to exhaust options and search more areas within Rapture. Finding hidden tunnels and air-vent shafts and "extra" areas to explore.

I'm sure I'll have another go with COD4 soon, but my point is - I COULDN'T WAIT to get back into this game.
It was actually better the second time through, which is really quite rare for most video games.

I had to beat it, I loved it!
The city of Rapture became my world in a very short timeframe.
I played day and night and found myself playing even if I only had like 30 minutes of gametime before work or having to be somewhere.
(I played it on New Year's Eve afternoon before going out that night, simply because I couldn't tear myself away).

If you've played this game you know what I'm talking about...
If you haven't started from the very beginning and played all the way through to the end, you simply must!

If this game doesn't grab you from the word 'go' and not let go until the end, check your pulse...
This game RAWKS!
(Nuf said!)

On a scale from 1-10, I give this game a 10,000.

I have only one achievement left in the game, and that is the beat it on the hardest difficulty. So I have played through Neptune, and I have to say as long as you can tolerate multiple visits to the chamber it is not all that challenging. Using the first aid kits and eve injections is basically pointless. When you fight a big Daddy you also have to accept that your going to have to go through all of your ammo, and take at least a dozen trips to the cloner. The added difficulty is mostly cheap difficulty.

Sure the danger makes you play the game somewhat different, but when you get to a point where the monster is unbeatable you have to just accept death, and work them down over repeat visits. Just more time consuming.

@MontanaHatchet: The fact that this game is for now the second best ranked on the siteseems to contradict you.

Great games gets great rankings from almost everybody, which explains why the top 10 looks like it is now. Supporters of a specific system and fanboys aren't able to affect greatly the ranking of the really good games. Let's just see where Bioschock will finish its run (probably out of the top 10, which is not dishonorable when you look at the top rated games)
