    Default Harvest vs Rescue

    I know I'm late to the whole Bioshock game, but only recently purchased it at a really good price. For some reason the game just didn't appeal to me. I know the PS3 version has it minor flaws, but I am really enjoying the game now. Pity I didn't play it earlier.

    Anyways with that out of the way, I just want to ask the guys that have played, did you decide to harvest or rescue the little sisters? Are there any benefits to doing both? Does it deserve a second play through etc?

    Thanks in advance.

    First playthrough i rescued every one, couldn't bring myself to harvest them.

    On the second playthrough i harvested a couple just to check it out.

    In the end there's not too much difference, you get more Adam if you harvest but for every 4 (i think) that you rescue you get gifts, some of which are very nice.

    I have just got to Fort Frolic I think it's called, I'm wondering if I should start over. I have rescued about 1, and harvested about 6

    Im playing through this game for the 1st time and I decided to harvest all the little girls.

    On my second play through I will rescue them all, then when Im ready to tackle the difficulty without the Vita Chambers I will harvest only when I need to.

    If you plan on getting Platinum then you will have to have a playthrough where you rescue EVERY sister.

    Yeah, thinking I might just do the same. Continue to harvest them, and play through again. I believe the ending is different as well, so I may as well make the most of it.

    if you work it out; you get 80 for saving; and 160 for harvesting; but if you think about it you get 200 bonus for every four.

    so the difference is you lose out on 120 for every 4 of them. not a biggie; you get some good upgrades for saving them. so its worth it i suppose to save them.

    Also you will see a completely different ending on whether you save all the little sisters or harvest them.

    But its also recommended to save all the little sisters until you come across your first big daddy. After that you can start harvesting them.

    Can you get these upgrades only by rescuing the little sisters? Or do you get them later on in the game?
