Bioshock: Worth It?



Alright, well I've been looking at Bioshock for quite a while now, but I'm undecided as to whether or not I should purchase it.

On the one hand: it's received really high review scores, has an awesome story and atmosphere, and the powers look amazing.

On the other hand: (as childish as this sounds) I don't enjoy horror games AT ALL, I'm suspicious that most of the hype around the game was made by 360-fanboys when the game was once exclusive, and apparently there's a heavy emphasis on RPG elements, which doesn't appeal to me one bit.

So my question is: do you think I should buy it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'd say pick it up, I wouldn't classify it as a horror game, more so suspense really which is derived heavily from the environment most of the time.

The game's praise is due however, it was the darling of gaming journalists everywhere when it was released. As for RPG elements, the only real RPG elements consist of some powerup management, you shouldn't be dissapointed

100% yes, Bioshock is an amazing game, I recommend it even for those who aren't fans of the FPS genre.

Yeah, Bioshock is awesome and there is nothing to worry about as far as not liking horror games or RPGs. It's not scary, nor is it like playing a FF. Can't go wrong for $20-$30 bucks

Definitely a game to pick up, great story mode and innovative use of weapons and powerups and it gives you a choice, to kill or save, but I won't say who so the game isn't spoiled.

Thanks very much guys - you've convinced me that it's a game worth buying. I'm ordering it as we speak, on Amazon.
