Mac|Life has released a new review of Bioshock. The first person adventure title drops players into the undersea world of Rapture where they must avoid being killed by the bizarre denizens of the city while seeking a way to escape. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 5 out of 5.

From the review:

You’ll also pick up cash, food, ammo, and tonics throughout the game. Tonics give Jack extra power, such as the ability to avoid detection by security systems for longer periods of time or the knowledge to hack an enemy gun turret to make it fight for him. Unconventional strategic elements pull BioShock out of the mass of conventional first-person shooters--you’ll find yourself solving puzzles to hack vending machines to get lower prices or previously unavailable items, photographing enemies to learn their weaknesses, and collecting a fuel source known as ADAM to buy upgrades to suit your fighting style.

The developer put a good amount of work into this port, and it shows. Outstanding graphics and sound meet top-notch voice acting, and the dark tension created by the environment and storyline almost never fades. Add in frenzied, inventive combat and clever enemy AI that switches fighting tactics on the fly, and you have a game that stays interesting for more than 12 hours of play. We did see a few small bugs, namely some grammatical errors in menu screens and choppy framerates in the end sequence, but these could all be fixed in updates.
