    I realized I had a spare £40 left over from Christmas in the form of some HMV vouchers. I want to get either a Xbox 360 game or a Wii game.

    I was thinking of getting either Bioshock or Metroid.

    Can someone who has played both please tell me of your opinions?

    I have both and I think Bioshock is better than Metroid. The beginning is awesome. Played through that 3 times before I went any further.

    Just to let you know, on the HMV website (where I think you can use vouchers), Bioshock is £24.99 and Metroid is £32.99. So if you can find an extra £18 you can get both! I don't know how much they are in-store though, they may be the same.

    It shouldnt even be a question. Bioshock is far more valuable, unless you havnt an open mind...
    I wont knock MP3 though. If you have spare cash, rent Metroid.

    Metroid is a good game, but it can't really compare to Bioshock.. Bioshock is insane

    can you really call metroid just a fps? its more like adventure fps. biosock is kinda the same but with a 'real' story and better graphics. i like the controls better in mp3 than in bioshock but bioshock is still more fun.

    Played it for a couple hours, man it's awesome!

    I rather ambitiously chose HARD mode, which I am starting to regret now I face the first Big Daddy. What is the best way to kill these guys?

    EDIT: Never mind. He was officially Frummaged :lol:

    EDIT: Aww, I feel so sad for those little girls. When you kill the Big Daddies they say stuff like "Why did you have to die, Mr Bubbles?"
