This is a good review, and I agree that while BioShock isn't quite the masterpiece many media outlets claim it is, it's still worth playing. One thing I wanted to point out, though. The paragraph near the end about the big "moral dilemmas" involving the Little Sisters is missing one crucial detail. When you make the choice to save Little Sisters, they'll start leaving behind gifts of appreciation, just as Tenenbaum promised. The items they give you (including more ADAM) far outweigh what you would have earned had you simply killed them in the first place, thus the obvious choice is to simply save them and wait for a reward.

This actually means that the whole mechanic is even more underdeveloped than you claim it is, since being the good guy actually reaps more rewards. Leave this stuff to BioWare, I guess.


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.
