The BioShock reviews are beginning to trickle in, and, so far, the survival-horror underwater first-person shooter shocker has earned two perfect scores.

First up is GamesRadar with a review that concludes with this juicy nugget:
This is the really bewildering thing about it: it succeeds so stunningly on three different fronts. Not esoteric ones, either, these are the big challenges developers have been struggling to master for decades: narrative, emergence, a sense of place. If another game did just one of these as well as BioShock, it would immediately qualify as a classic. When a game comes along that does all three, we can only be baffled and thankful.


Baffled and thankful, eh? Not bad. Can GameInformer top that?
It’s ingenious, enthralling, and a masterpiece of the most epic proportions. So without further delay, would you kindly enter Rapture so that you too can experience the best that video games have to offer?


A masterpiece of the most epic proportions? I think we have a winner.

Oh, and if you haven't already pre-ordered the title, today might be the day to do so, as these reviews are beginning to trickle out to the masses, and those who hadn't even heard of BioShock yesterday are now excited to play it next week.

Pre-order BioShock from Amazon (free shipping)

Yeah, but what about the fact that the protagonist just accepts where he is. And, without question, he just stabs himself with a syringe. WTF? Willing suspension of disbelief, my friend.




Jeremy, I've played the game. Your question is explained in the storyline. No suspension of disbelief necessary.
