BioShock received universal acclaim and was particularly praised by critics for its narrative, themes, visual design, setting, and gameplay. It is considered to be one of the greatest video games ever made and a demonstration of video games as an art form. Bioshock was followed by two sequels, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite, released in 2010 and 2013, respectively. Ports of Bioshock were released for macOS and mobile following its console releases. A remastered version of the game was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as part of BioShock: The Collection.

An initial demo of the game was made available in August 2007 for Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows.[58][59][60] This demo included cutscenes to introduce the player to Rapture, the game's tutorial section, and its first levels; the demo also included weapons, plasmids, and tonics that would otherwise be introduced later in the full title, as to give the player more of the features that would be found in the published game.[5] The Xbox 360 demo was the fastest demo at that time to reach one million downloads on the Xbox Live service.[61] The full game was released for these platforms on August 21, 2007.

In an August 2007 interview, when asked about the possibility of a PlayStation 3 version of BioShock, Ken Levine had stated only that there was "no PS3 development going on" at the time;[65] however, on May 28, 2008, 2K Games confirmed that a PlayStation 3 version of the game was in development by 2K Marin, and it was released on October 17, 2008.[3] On July 3, 2008, 2K Games announced a partnership with Digital Extremes and said that the PlayStation 3 version is being developed by 2K Marin, 2K Boston, 2K Australia, and Digital Extremes.[66] Jordan Thomas was the director for the PlayStation 3 version. While there were no graphical improvements to the game over the original Xbox 360 version,[67] the PlayStation 3 version offered the widescreen option called "horizontal plus", introduced via a patch on the 360 version, while cutscene videos were of a much higher resolution than in the DVD version.[68] Additional add-on content was also released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 version.[3][69] One addition was "Survivor Mode", in which the enemies were made tougher, and Vita-Chambers provided less of a health boost when used, forcing the player to be more creative in approaching foes and to rely more on the less-used plasmids in the game.[70] BioShock also supports Trophies and PlayStation Home. A demo version was released on the PlayStation Store on October 2, 2008.[71] An update for the PlayStation 3 version was released on November 13, 2008, to fix some graphical problems and occasions where users experienced a hang and were forced to reset the console. This update also incorporated the "Challenge Room" and "New Game Plus" features.[72]

GameSpy praised BioShock's "inescapable atmosphere",[108] and Official Xbox Magazine lauded its "inconceivably great plot" and "stunning soundtrack and audio effects."[95] The gameplay and combat system have been praised for being smooth and open-ended,[8][92] and elements of the graphics, such as the water, were commended for their quality.[13] It has been noted that the combination of the game's elements "straddles so many entertainment art forms so expertly that it's the best demonstration yet how flexible this medium can be. It's no longer just another shooter wrapped up in a pretty game engine, but a story that exists and unfolds inside the most convincing and elaborate and artistic game world ever conceived."[91]

BioShock has received praise for its artistic style and compelling storytelling. In their book, Digital Culture: Understanding New Media, Glen Creeber and Royston Martin perform a case study of BioShock as a critical analysis of video games as an artistic medium. They praised the game for its visuals, sound, and ability to engage the player into the story. They viewed BioShock as a sign of the "coming of age" of video games as an artistic medium.[166] John Lanchester of the London Review of Books recognized BioShock as one of the first video games to break into coverage of mainstream media to be covered as a work of art arising from its narrative aspects, whereas before video games had failed to enter into the "cultural discourse", or otherwise covered due to moral controversies they created.[7] Peter Suderman for Vox in 2016 wrote that BioShock was the first game that demonstrated that video games could be a work of art, particularly highlighting that the game plays on the theme of giving the illusion of individual control.[14]

I know it is not the newest machine, but it meets (os) or exceeds (hardware) all the requirements to play. in fact, I played the demo and it ran smooth as butter. That actually made me buy the game. So I paid, dl'd and installed the game.

the game icon is overlayed by a grey shadow, and when I double click it this message appears: "this version of osx cannot start this version of the programm "bioshock" " (this is an approximation, because it actually appears in german). So what is up with that? I am 100% certain that I am on 10.5.8. (I just looked it up again), the demo runs nicely, but the game doesn't. what to do? thanks for any input! (any I would prefer to stay on 10.5.8 for now).

Peerhaps you downloaded the wrong version. The message you saw is saying that the version you have is not compatible with your OS. There is no way to get around that other than finding a version that is compatible, or more painful, upgrading your OS to whatever is needed.

Feral is only giving ONE download link. and really - it should work on my system. Again: I am meeting all the reuqirements. I am redownloading right now, but i have not much hope. this has been nothing but a hastle so far and Feral is not really helping. I have the feeling they didn't even read my email.

Atlas tells Jack that he must kill Ryan. Jack moves through the wreckage to Ryan's residence,which is guarded by many Splicers. Jack eventually makes his way to Ryan and Ryan reveals that Jack was born in the Rapture. Using an audio diary, Ryan also reveals that Jack is Ryan's son and he was sold for a scientific experiment which trained him to be an assassin to perform and kill on verbal commands. Jack was trained by Fontaine and was given the instructions to hijack a plane, crash it near Rapture's surface entrance, and assassinate Ryan. Jack was then put into the surface world. Ryan demonstrates this by ordering Jack to kill him by using the phrase "Would you kindly...". At which point Jack realizes his entire "adventure" up until now was guided by that phrase.

On September 21, 2006 Ken Levine showed a demo which begins with the player being in a utopia-under-the-sea which called Rapture. It explained that Rapture was fine until a genetic material called Adam was discovered. The demo then shows a big daddy and explains that it is a genetically modified protector. Levine show off and explains the AI design for the big daddy and little sister. He explains that their job is to find Adam. Adam has the ability to enhance one's physical attributes and abilities. Levine explains that player is able to manipulate and exploit the AI. The environment is dynamic. The enemies are genetically modified humans and security bots. The interactive environment and the plasmid abilities were also shown off.

On July 6, 2007 Ken Levine shows a demo in which he goes through the same scenario in three different ways. The first time he enters the room and just tries to shoot all the enemies. The second time he uses the environment, resets traps and hacks turrets to his advantage. The third time he manipulates the Big Daddy into attacking his enemies for him. The requirements for BioShock were revealed on July 9, 2007.

On August 12, 2007 a free demo was released on the Xbox Live Marketplace. On August 20, 2007 a PC demo became available on Steam, Filefront, and FilePlanet. The demo contains the first 45 minutes of the game and includes a beginning cinematic that established a setting and beginning plot lines. The demo also introduced a few weapons, such as the pistol and the machine gun, along with powers that can be used by the main character, such as ElectroBolt and Incinerate; some of these would normally be found later in the game, but were added in the demo in order to give players a taste of the full game. The demo also contains different modes of play from easy to hard.

Devour is a 1 to 4-person co-op horror survival game. The entire objective is to survive long enough to collect items used to eventually banish the evil demon from your area. This is made increasingly difficult by the fact that the demon gets angrier the closer you are to succeeding. What seems to be a simple spooky task, in the beginning, turns into a complete tactical nightmare as you rush to finish the ritual before being eaten alive.
