BioShock is one of the creepier games out. The wild, chronicling the building of a perfect Utopian society undersea gone horribly wrong, with its inhabitants driven mad by the introduction of tonics and genetic modifications. Now, Rapture is just a shadow of its former glory, with little girls looting the dead of what little they have left, while being shadowed by guardians known as "Big Daddies." It is a demanding game that will make your hardware scream for mercy. This First Person Shooter allows for an infinite number of weapons and modifications to provide a unique experience each time it is played. The environment, as well as the storyline, will wrap you up for hours on end.

The frame rates for the 9800GT and the 8800GT again are almost identical. Anyone see a trend? Although the performance is lower than the rest of the comparison cards, the frame rates are easily playable without and lag or stuttering. Turning Vsync on of course, makes all of the cards equal in terms of maximum frame rate. The minimum frame rate is where the benefits will be seen with a faster video card.
