Story of the Rapture City
“It was not impossible to build Rapture at the bottom of the sea. It was impossible to build it anywhere else!” says Andrew Ryan. He knows what men capable of, after seeing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He believes that world will go into nuclear war and he wanted to build a city away from the clutching hand of the “Parasites”. So, the construction of Rapture began. A city where the artist would not fear the censor. Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small.
A man saw Ryan’s utopian society as the perfect opportunity for a long but big-payoff con. Frank Fontaine, he knew what happened with utopias. When this undersea utopia fell apart, he wanted to be there, with a whole society to feast on.
Fontaine raised with the invention of plasmids which are special serums made from processed ADAM which allows genetic mutation, giving the user what some may call “super powers”. Plasmids are powerful, but excessive use of them leads to physical and mental addiction and instability. This was a major factor in the eventual downfall of Rapture society. But of course it wasn’t the only reason, Ryan did a lot of mistakes during that time. As he says; “The city… it is collapsing before my… have I become so convinced by my own beliefs that I have stopped seeing the truth? Perhaps”.
And at this point, our game starts. Incredible story especially made for a video game. Amazing voice acting. Combat might get a bit repetitive at some point but not a major issue. Graphics is still acceptable for a game which has been released 9 years ago.
Like Andrew Ryan says; “A man chooses a slave obeys”. So, would you kindly choose to play this game?
