2.0 out of 5 stars Get Fallout 3 instead., 14 Sept. 2011
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bioshock (PS3) (Video Game)
Bioshock is an OK game. My mistake was to play it after putting 60 hours into Fallout 3. All Bioshock's good points - of which there are some - are in Fallout but Fallout much improves upon them. It's just far too linear and repetitive. You do get choices to make but not to the extent that your game completely changes like can happen in Fallout. It's worth a fiver but only if you've already played Fallout. If you have, I doubt you'll find Bioshock has anything to offer.

True, they're very different and I agree with you. My only quibble would be that Fallout is actually a FPS, (or 3rd person if you choose), but it qualifies as an RPG because of it's massive sandbox appeal. You can play it as a FPS but without the linear and repetitive constricts of Bioshock. There are comparisons to be made but I think I was having a bit of fanboy rant as Fallout had me so completely engrossed at the time. Great game. Bioshock, not so much.
