BioShock battle shots

BioShock's open-world ambition offers many options for combating the drooling mutant inhabitants of the game's doomed underwater location, Rapture, and here's an example of how you can use the subterranean city's defenses against its own residents. Tap the Images tab above for more views of this battle, showing a freshly hacked hover-turret peppering a slavering enemy as it attacks the player in a deserted bar.

By juggling your abilities and using the many enhancing substances you find on your Rapturous adventure, you can opt to combat each situation in a way that suits your own tactics. We're hoping that BioShock's unique blend of murky survival gameplay and free-form action bobs to the surface this side of the summer - we just can't wait to embrace the Rapture.
