its not really scarey full stop to be honest, it starts off tense at first and makes you jump a few times in kind of "dam that might of killed me" moments,,, but then it very quickly wears off when you realise death has no meaning, you die, you come bk to life with full ammo and just go bk to where ever shock scare happened and continue exactly where you died ,,,

in short, no its not scarey, a lot of fun but scarey no

It's definitely not in any way scary like FEAR scary. So, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Not really scary just things just jump out at you in the dark.

This is just the kind of thing that--like three years later--makes me hesitant to play the game. :P So I jump down to Neptune's Bounty, fight off a dozen splicers (and honestly, I find every one of them somewhat scary) and then it locks Neptune's and I'm stuck looking at the medical sector, with the radio and the captions telling me to go down the medical corridor. And I kinda pause and save the game, have a drink and ponder what's in the freaking hospital... then go and play some MW2 for a while. :lol: ...such a wimp!

You had to bump a 2 year old thread to say that why?

no game is scary, unless you use headphones with the volume up high to make you jump

No I would not label the game as scary, however the whole story is really freaky & it's a great game you should play regardless.

I hate scary, especially survival horror, but Bioshock isn't scary like survival horror can be.

the game starts out a bit scary surrounded by darkness and with few firepower, but as Jack grows stronger you forget those puny splicers present no threat

I found the game very creepy and disturbing and it made me jump a lot of times. Maybe I'm just a wuss but I found it a lot more scarier than Resident Evil 4 and 5 for example.

BS1 and 2 have some creepy and disturbing moments but it's not scary especially when compared to game like Silent Hill, Dead Space and the pre RE4 games.

Scary? No.

It has a creepy, tense atmosphere.

I'd say the atmosphere is whats most creepy about bioshock.
