BioShock

I rip into a modern game “classic” over at Reaxxion:

In contrast, BioShock lets you nail a splicer between the eyes from 500 yards with a pistol at the beginning of the game. Plasmids are almost ancillary: you can complete the game with just the ones you get as part of the plot. There’s no inventory system, so no stockpiling food and other items to save for later; your character scarfs down everything he finds like a fat chick in diabetic shock. You can hack every single machine from the first level to the last, and money is so plentiful that you’ll never have to worry about running out of ammo or health kits.
