This is a discussion on Is Bioshock ... ? within the General PS3 Discussion forum, part of the Everything PlayStation; Is Bioshock and Bioshock 2 worth 5 $ ? There is sale on ps store on them . I played ...
Yes for a couple of reasons. One, Bioshock 1 is awesome and you should play it. Bioshock 2 was eh but still worth a go just to keep up with the universe. Two, it's a steal at that price. I already own 1 but I bought 2 just becuz it was $5 (otherwise I would have Gameflyed it).

I personally enjoyed BioShock 2 more than the original. The story wasn't as good but I enjoyed the gameplay more and thought it was the overall better game. Either way, they're both definitely worth more than $5 so getting them at that price is quite a good deal.

Bioshock 1 is worth way more than $5, getting for that price is a no brainer. It's one of the best games I have ever played on the PS3. Bioshock 2; to me wasn't as good story wise. But it's still a pretty fun game to play and is still a steal at $5.
I loved all 3 of them for different reasons. Infinite was definitely my favorite though.
Bioshock - Since it was the first of the 3, it had the biggest sense of "you are all alone" and since you don't really know what the hell is going on, all the twists that the Bioshock series is so good at seem to have more of an impact.
Bioshock 2 - Story twists aren't as much of a surprise, but the combat mechanics improved over the first Bioshock and who doesn't want to play as a Big Daddy ALL THE WAY THROUGH?!
Bioshock Infinite - They give you a brand new world to discover, but still tie it into the storyline from the first 2. Not to mention the ending mind-fucks the hell out of you. They also kept the best gameplay mechanics and made them even better. Not to mention Elizabeth's helpful abilities (and it was nice to have a companion that interacted with you throughout most of the adventure).
Bioshock is easily my 2nd favorite franchise of all time. Picking the first 2 up for $5 is a steal. Grab them without hesitation and once you play them, you will slap yourself for having to ask the forum if you should purchase them.
Just an update to my first post; finished 1 the other day, just started number 2, and trust me, it's just as awesome. Story is still good, gameplay is great, and the online is pretty good too. So yeah, too amazing games for an amazing price.
Absolutely get them. I actually didn't like the original Bioshock to begin with. But I kept playing it, and it's now one of my all time favorite games. Don't understand the hate for Bioshock 2. Considering Ken Levine wasn't involved, I thought the game was pretty damned good. Story wasn't quite as good as the original, (But really, I don't think it could have been better since the original's was so awesome), but the gameplay was definitely better than the first.
