Bio Inc. Redemption PC Review
Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Bio Inc. Redemption by DryGin Studios.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of the game from the developers for review purposes. Like all of my reviews, this had no effect on my thoughts and experiences with the game.
Bio Inc. Redemption is a simulation game based on the medical field. The game features 2 different campaigns, Life and Death, and each one features their own unique play style and objectives.
In the Life campaign your objective is to cure your patient of diseases using various treatments. You must collect antibodies that spawn then use them to perform tests to diagnose their ailments. Then you must treat them by using more antibodies to administer treatments. You can also use antibodies to evolve lifestyle improvements which help keep the various bodily systems alive. There’s also a section for when your patient goes to the hospital which helps increase survival chances.
There are 4 different campaign levels in the life campaign starting in medical school and ending with the intensive care unit. By collecting stars you’ll be able to unlock missions in the other levels of the campaign. Each mission has their own unique objective for you to complete as well. When your mission is selected you can then name your character (Or choose an avatar) and then choose the difficulty level. Each difficulty allows you to unlock a star so you’ll need to complete each level on each difficulty to unlock all of the missions.
Once your patient is setup you can use XP to equip various perks such as weaker diseases, quick harvest, better lifestyles, better treatments and long days to name a few. Each perk alters the gameplay slightly and you unlock more perk slots and XP as you level up.
In the Death campaign your objective is to kill your patient using any of the diseases available. Diseases include the flu, H1N1 (Swine Flu), Heart Attack, Blood Clot, Parkinson’s Disease and many, many more. To use some diseases you must evolve various risk factors. Risk factors include smoking, sedentary, workaholic, over 60 years old and hereditary to name a few. Each one has various effects on the various bodily systems. There’s also recovery options you can evolve which slows down the treatment of the diseases you gave them.
The game also features a multiplayer mode where life and death go up against each other. One player takes on the role of saving the patient while the other takes on the role of killing them. It’s a race against the clock and your opponent to come out on top. A good understanding of each disease is required to come out the victor as well, especially when playing the savior. Multiplayer is a lot of fun though and it’s made even better when you’re playing against a friend and you utterly destroy them (My understanding of the game was better than his though lol).
Overall, Bio Inc. Redemption is a pretty solid and quite amusing simulation game. It’s a more personal experience compared to another game called Plague Inc. but that only makes the game more enjoyable. If you’re a fan of dark simulation games that revolve around killing your patients with the option to save them as well, then you’ll find this game sadistically entertaining. One thing I will admit is that I do feel that the game gets a bit repetitive after a while since you’re doing more or less the same thing each time but with different objectives. The game is great in small bursts though.
Thanks for taking the time to read the review folks and I’ll be back with my next one soon, until then, happy gaming folks!
