Yes, it's another Bioshock tribute level, but I've never seen one so accurate. The storyline is very close to the original game, and all our favourite characters are here.

Play with lights off and sound up! :)

that was really nice, probably the best one i've seen. I doubt mine is gonna be that good :( i really liked the start with the plane, the lighthouse, and the bathysphere part, but when you got to rapture it got a little meh, hopefully my rapture part will be better. He's already got me beat at the lighthouse and bathysphere part XD If i make something like this again im doing it bigger like this guy.

Not the style I like but it was good in some places.
I don't like that intensive stickering that covers material textures, everything looks so bland, and I think that with good lighting you can achieve better visuals results.
I gave it 4 stars

This guy, Nathan900, is also the creator of "Night Life", one of the most hearted levels in LBP. I'm proud to say he's in my friendlist, and I know he's put all his effort in this level. He is continuously researching, and he doesn’t relax with the fact of being an “old legend” of LBP.

He's a fan of Bioshock, and a fan of LBP, so it was only a matter of time he was doing this level xDD

I think it’s a great level, not my stile either, but I can’t be too objective knowing how humble and kind this guy is.
I couldn't help but giving it 5 stars and heart.

If you ever read this, good job Nathan!

I played it Poms, and what I really think is that it has the same problems of every tribute/remake.
He only tried to replicate Bioshock, that's all...with what I think are plain visuals.
I don't like this stickering everything completely, since it covers the textures of the game, that are really adaptable for everything if you choose well and with a good lighting.
You can still sticker everything but if you go completely abstract like EvilPanda, but you could eve use stuff like Natuneko.
Coloring the textures is the easiest and worst way to make thing appear, imho.
Worst than that, he picked up stuff and he tried to replicate it in LBP.
I think that you should capture the spirit of the game and make it your own through LBP visuals and gameplay, like CaptainCowboy did with Mario.

I don't doubt that Nathan put a lot of efforts and works and heart in the level, but imho he started with a wrong concept.
He should do his Bioshock, since I think that I'll ever enjoy BioShock more than his level, since it's a dull copy (even if it is an enjoyable level)
You can't do some things on LBP so you should not try to adapt, but to rework them with imagination.

That's my 2 cents and they're not only for Nathan, but to everyone that makes tributes.
Sometimes people gets caged since they want to stay close to a concept, even if they are good creators with the tools.
I think that we could expect more from people like Nathan, but he should think before starting a level...what would be my version of BioShock concept?

Oh yeah Omega, I fully agree with you.
I think making a tribute forces you to do things you wouldn't do in a normal level. I would say even the fact of having a history in a level, forces you to go to “the wrong way” sometimes.
I am a fan of other games, but trust me; I’m not doing a tribute to any of them.

I think after “Night Life”, Nathan was in great advantage with many of the creators of that time, and could have followed an evolution that could have made of him a top one, but for some reason he hasn’t find his way to do so.

I’m not either a fan of using stickers. I prefer combinations of natural materials (lol, there are tons of them to choose).

Played it last night and I thought it was very well made.
I just loved exploring an actual good-looking Rapture in LBP.
My favorite part was the pre-bathysphere area. It was spot-on.
