The story seems like it could be ok, too early to tell yet. The atmosphere/setting is very good, best thing the game has going for it at this point.

My main issue is that I just don't find the gameplay particularly compelling. I don't think the stealth is very fun, and the sword/gunplay is resoundingly meh. I just got Blink, so I haven't really experienced any of that aspect yet.

Think it's worth me continuing?

You just finally got to the point with Bioshock powers, give it a little more time and see if it still doesn't make you feel it




bro.
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

If the powers add significant depth to the gameplay or or if the story really takes off I would consider pushing on, if not likely not. Was just looking for some input. Thanks for the incredibly helpful response though.

Blinking around is quite fun. The other powers don't add much to the gameplay, unfortunately.

It's mostly an atmosphere/setting game with really nice environments. To be honest, if you want good stealth, look for it elsewhere. For example, Mark of the Ninja is fantastic.

I found the stealth very fun. However the fact that you can for the most part hang out high up and out of view somewhat diminished the value. I had a lot of fun instead on the ground trying to maneuver my way between enemies. Blinking behind someone, knocking them out, picking up their body and blinking away again is far more enjoyable than just hanging out on a roof.

There's no real reward for being stealthy most of the time. Just bum rush through everything.

I'm in the same boat as you. Played 3 hours and unfortunately decided it wasn't for me. Not saying it's a bad game I just didn't really enjoy it.
