360 GAMER infected by BioShock

The UK's leading Xbox 360 magazine nabs an exclusive hands-on with Irrational Games BioShock

13/04/06 - Uncooked Media's 360 GAMER magazine has secured another exciting cover exclusive, this time on the innovative sci fi first-person shooter BioShock, developed by Irrational Games and to be published during 2007 by Take 2.

A hulking Protector monster from BioShock dominates the cover to 360 GAMER issue eight, with an art style echoing back to the pulp science fiction magazines of the Fifties and Sixties that served as one of BioShock's many inspirations. The extensive nine-page feature grants readers unprecedented access to this next-generation title, including exclusive never-before-seen screenshots and production concept sketches, along with an exclusive interview from BioShock's executive producer Ken Levine, the man behind the critically-acclaimed System Shock 2 and Freedom Force series.

Stu Taylor, Group Editor, Uncooked Media said:

"BioShock is shaping up to be one of the most exciting gaming tickets for the Xbox 360, and were obviously delighted that Take 2 approached 360 GAMER for an Xbox 360 exclusive cover and feature. This, along with previous cover exclusives on the new Project Gotham Racing cars, Frame City Killer, Crackdown and Prey, proves that 360 GAMER is building a solid reputation as the 'go to' place for publishers looking to break the latest news or announce its new Xbox 360 projects."

The eighth issue of 360 GAMER also includes the exclusive Xbox 360 review of 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany, as well as characteristically honest and unbiased verdicts on Final Fantasy XI, Tomb Raider: Legend, Astropop, Jewel Quest, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Feeding Frenzy.

The comprehensive mix of features, developer interviews and previews include coverage on the hottest Xbox 360 games, including: Test Drive Unlimited, Ninety-Nine Nights, Superman Returns, Just Cause, X-Men: The Official Game, Medal of Honor: Airborne, Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires, Far East of Eden Ziria and many more.

Rounding off the complete Xbox 360 gaming package, this issue's cheats and guides section includes valuable playtips on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fight Night Round 3.
