I guess you only get a small amount when saving little sisters. I want to get as many achivments that i can. So do i need to spend all the adam on tonics, will i have enough.

i believe somewhere within' the bioshock forum somebody mentioned they finished the game with a extra 200 adam with nothing to spend on......... i don't know if he harvested or saved the sisters but if you looked around a little i'm sure you could find out ;)

well i know that it is very possible to achieve 900 gamer score (thats on normal) in one play through... which means that you would be required to save them ..... my advice is that if you want achievements, make sure to buy the extra slot upgrades first then the tonics plasmids etc

Someone said they saved all of them and had enough Adam to buy everything, so don't worry about it.

All I'll say is you really don't need to worry about getting only half as much adam with saving.

Meh could be considered a gameplay spoiler, or not, i dunno, but nothing to do with the story really...



but when you save the little sisters, just so you know if you didn't, you do end up getting a 200 ADAM bonus for every 3 you save. So, considering that, you'd get 480 ADAM total if you harvested three sisters, and you'd get 440 ADAM if you rescue three sisters. So, that said, the difference in ADAM for each option is greatly overexaggerated, it seems.

Not saving the sisters gives you a freaky animation at least everytime you harvest them. :drunk

I read through a guide that said to harvest all of them your first play though so you can get all the plasmids and upgrades and everything. So that's what I'm doing. I bought everything in that first machine you come too when harvesting both of the beginning Little Sisters.

My "Philosophy"

Rescue them. The woman will give you bonuses for saving them, in the form of Teddy Bears. It's worth it, because you lose 40 Adam per 3 sisters but get an achievement, and the Teddy Bear often includes Lots of Ammo and Tonics or a Plasmid.

I'm saving the Little Sisters this time through, since you can get the 100G achievement for saving all of them. It's working out well so far, but I'm only a few hours into the game. I've had enough Adam to upgrade what I need. Besides, this is definitely worth playing through a second time anyway :D

how many little sisters are in this game??? i noticed that when you pause the game it shows how many are in the level you are in but what constitutes a level?

Yes. Every sister you rescue you get 80 Adam, but every one you sacrifice, you get 160. However every 3 sisters you rescue, you get a bonus of 200 Adam.

So looking at groups of 3, you get 480 Adam for harvesting and 440 for rescuing. So you end up with 40 less per every 3 but you also end up with other bonuses as part of your gift. At least if you consistantly get 200 Adam as a gift every time you save 3.

So far i've only saved 5 so i need to save one more to see if it's consistent.

every level is designated by what area you are in according to the Rapture Metro. so, if you're in Neptune's Bounty, that entire are is one level, Medical Pavilion is on level, Hepheastus is one level, etc.

When do you receive the acheivement for rescueing all the litter sisters. I've harvested every one so far, hwoever I've got the "Dealt with every little sister" Achievement, but not the "Saved every little sister" one.

It is consistent. Heh, I posted the about the same thing a bit earlier. I beat the game one time and saved every little sister. It's true till the end. Every three you save, you get the bonus 200 ADAM. Plus the ammo and stuff.

If you've hit X and "Harvested" them, you won't get the achievement. You need to hit Y to "Rescue" them for the achievement.

Sorry, That was a typo. I've hit Y and "Rescued" each one. Just checked each area and each has a little sister face, as opposed to the icon you get when you "Harvest" them.

So if I just beat the game I'll get it? Also...

**SPOILER** (just incase)

When escorting the little sister can I let one die or do I need to protect the original one to get the achievement?


One last thing for the record I've ran out of adam in terms of buying things from the garden. I have been buying the health and eve upgrades however. And once again I've got the achievement while at point prometheus for "Dealt with every little sister"

I have 45 adam left and two health (80x2) and two eve(80x2) upgrades as well as a few tonics (80 each)

edit: Ok, I've beat the game and now got the achievement for beating it as well as "Little Sister Savior". However I'm still short on adam in terms of getting the upgrades. Do you get the keep any of the atom you steal at the end?

i figured you get more by saving them. you get 160 per sister for killing them, and only 80 per sister to save. but every couple they drop a doll by the machine and you get an additional 200 for saving X many girls.

It's been said a few times that you get more by Harvesting. 160x3=480, 80x3+200=440. Not a big difference, but you do get more by Harvesting.

well i saved them first and only had enough to max out all the stats and slots for each group and buy a bunch (or i should say a couple) level 3 spells but trust me it was plenty of adam

ya but with harvesting do you get an additional 200 in that teddy bear every couple girls? If not then its 80x3+200 = 640

I'm having trouble getting enough Adam to buy the remaining tonics. I'm on Hard difficulty and saving the Little Sisters. I've already gotten the achievement for not harvesting any so I'm going to wait for my next gift and harvest any ones left.

I guess I'm missing some in the places where I only have two faces even though it doesn' tell me? Could somebody help?

Medical Pavilion - 2 faces
Neptune's Bounty - 3 faces
Arcadia - 2 faces
Fort Folic - 4 faces (Tells me there are Little Sisters left)
Hephaestus - 3 faces
Apollo Square - 2 faces
Point Prometheus - 3 faces

Your math is terrible, dude. 80x3=240+200=440. My previous post was correct.
