    Bioshock

    I have been waiting for Bioshock to drop in price since it is single player

    Do folks here think it is worth it now? Also, does it have much replayability?

    Dude, it was worth it at 50. And no, it doesn't have any replayability. Two plays is about it.

    Those two claims seem somewhat contradictory.

    It's got about as much replayability as SS2.

    Maybe he was talking about Serious Sam 2.

    It may seem that way, but it isn't. $50 for 30 hours of solid gameplay is quite good value.

    how on earth would you know


    Anyway, the answer is, yes, it's worth it. I played start-to-finish four times, so your mileage may vary.

    That's why I spent $50 for HL2 even though it wasn't replayable. But Bioshock is no HL2. I got maybe 5-10 good hours out of Bioshock and it took a lot of willpower to stay with it to the finish. If you're looking for the most gaming value for your money, there are so many better choices.

    To say that Bioshock has comparable replay value to SS2 is laughable. Like with any other RPG, SS2 supports character builds on entirely opposite ends of the spectrum and anywhere in-between. Bioshock doesn't, full stop. Player imposed restrictions, such as different play-styles, is not the same thing.

    Yeah, because Bioshock doesn't let you explore everything in a single go and forces you to pick severe handicaps at the beginning of the game, so you are forced to think up different solutions to the same problems.

    Oh wait.

    You can't explore everything in SS2 in a single go?

    Well, you can't max out every single stat and try everything in a single go. Unless you cheat.

    Neither Bioshock nor HL2 were nowhere near 30 hours.

    That's a nasty case of double negative you have there.

    I agree.
    I've played SS2 over and over again many times in the past ten years. BS I played for a while, but never really found the will power to finish. I stayed with it until the big boss fight at the end, but a game glitch left me stuck partly in a wall so I never really felt motivated to replay that last bit.

    I finished the game, but I'm still refilling my willpower tank; weeks or even months after BS I didn't have enough willpower to play my favorite games. (this is actually true )

    I played Bioshock 1 and a half times, on the second time reaching Andrew Ryan by which time it had become a force of effort to keep going. I felt Bioshock sagged after that point anyway, so I wasn't much fussed. Still worth the money for that first time through though, although I only paid 25 for it at release of Play.com. Only put down 25 for Fallout 3 as well, so if you're in the UK I'd recommend the site.

    SS2, on the other hand, I've played about 3 times. Its replayability was hampered for me by my plebbish affinity for fresh content, and I felt like I'd seen everything by the 3rd time.

    I don't like when people refer this game as BS. Ok? ok.

    You're not missing a whole heck of a lot, in fact, you can play the game ending movie(s) with the Bink movie player.

    It's $5 right now during Steam's holiday sale. Even if you're iffy on it, I'd have a hard time arguing it's not worth it.
