Personally, I don't think the Shocks are very RPGish - but I concede they have enough elements to qualify for the genre in the stricter sense.
I haven't followed Bioshock3 religiously, but the video they put out a year or so ago certainly looked very similar to me. None of the snippets I've read since would lead me to believe they've punted and gone a completely different direction. Yeah, they dropped the underwater city in favor of a cloud city, but beyond that it seemed like a pretty familiar formula.

I completely agree that even "RPG-lite" is probably a bit generous, but I found joxer's curt dismissal to be overly harsh and questionable as well.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
Dallas Cowboys: Punt. Bring on the draft. / / Detroit Red Wings: Dylan Larkin, fastest All-Star EVAH!
