Worth playing through multiple times?


Recommended Posts

There are two kinds of games, as far as I'm concerned -- games that are only tolerable once (so you must collect all achievements through your one-and-only playthrough), and games that you can play through several times (so you can do the first for fun, without worrying about achievements, another achievement-driven playthrough, and another cleanup playthrough if necessary).


Which type is this?


I've tried to do everything at once -- overwhelming.

I've tried to just play -- worried about replayability.


So, is it worth playing through it for fun before worrying about achievements? Will the replay be a drag?

This is by far one of the most entertaining games I´ve ever played...

I can play this again without a problem for collectibles and missed achievements (although I got it all at once) even as I know the plot and it´s twists....


The only issue I can see would be to play this again and again on a row if you miss a collectible you can´t get back to.

It is really overwhelming to try to do everything first run, and sucks the fun right out of the game. I actually think this game is MORE fun the more you play it. I mean some of the "surprise" story element is gone, but seeing as it's an older game some of that is probably gone for you anyway lol. It's not a long game imho (especially when replaying), most of the achievements unlock without a thorough grind, so play for fun first and then see what you need to get. Totally replayable.

Thanks, guys! Definitely eases my mind about this game. Looks like my first playthrough will be for fun. :)


Good choice. Bioshock is just too brilliant to worry about achievements the first play through. Its a game that should be experienced in full because its soooooo worth it.

This game is definitely quite replayable for the story and atmosphere alone. I don't know how many times I've played Bioshock over the years, and it never gets old. I feel like I still notice something new every time I play. It's a modern classic for a reason! :)
