BioShock is one of the creepier games you can play. The building of a perfect Utopian society undersea gone horribly wrong. Its inhabitants driven mad with 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 story line will wrap you up for hours on end.

The Atomic Edition HD 4890 falls below the GTX 285 in the first three resolutions, but delivers an identical performance at 2560x1600. Overclocking does not provide an advantage over the GTX 285 until 1920x1200, where the difference is in favor of the Atomic by five FPS. At 2560x1600, the overclocked advantage is eight FPS - something ATI cards have not really been capable of lately.
