Bioshock is beautiful (and bloody scary)

Bioshock 1

If you can stomach the download – it’s over a gigabyte, and thanks to my patchy wi-fi it took eight hours to download – the Xbox 360 demo of Bioshock is stunning. You get about an hour of gameplay, and if that’s representative of the game as a whole it’s going to be incredible. The ruined art deco environments are beautiful, the gameplay’s exciting and the atmosphere is genuinely unsettling.

Please please please let the game be as good as the demo.
