Welcome To Columbia
The year is 1912.
With the United States emerging as a world power, the floating City of Columbia is a mighty symbol of American ideals, launched with great fanfare to the cheers of a captivated public. But what begins as an endeavour of hope soon turns to disaster, as the city disappears into the clouds, its whereabouts unknown. The greatest accomplishment in American history has vanished without a trace.
The player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He will develop a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt will learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

This game is brilliant, there's no much more to say about. A fantastic story which closes the circle with the previous two Bioshock's titles. It's addictive, kinda anxious, a fantastic journey which absolutely worth your money. Even if you don't like in particular the Bioshock's saga this is one of the best games made in the last 10 years. Buy the DLC if you can to complete the story and put together all the pieces.
Great game. Nice, compelling story. Good graphics and overall impression.
Bioshock Infinite is the best of the Bioshock games. Bioshock Infinite has conveyed a much bigger, well told story and with more refined experience from the developers. The game deals with themes of religion, racism, and xenophobia creating a more distinctive setting than Rapture, disclosing the city's culture, gripping you into the game from the beginning.
Bioshock Infinite is one of the best games of the generation. I really loved the level design, it's so fine. Columbia really takes your breath away. The combat system is simple and fun compared to the first Bioshock, now you also have Elizabeth to help in the fights against the foes. I still prefer the original Bioshock, that was a real masterpiece, but if you liked the first, you must play Infinite. This deserves 8 out 10.
I have been waiting for Bioshock Infinite ever since it was first talked about. It's simply the most awesome game I have ever played. I have played the other two Bioshock games to death, completing them with different play-throughs etc. This game is something else, the graphics and the realism of the game are just simply fantastic. The only thing that draws this game down is the racism, however, due to the story line, it was common in those years. It's a great game for a great price. It's lengthy and fun, with some new features that were not possible in the other games.
Bioshock Infinite is about a tortured guy in a tortured world. Everything is done to give you a huge headache! You'll love it!
Bioshock Infinite is a great game at a great price.
For the ones that are new to the Bioschock series, first a bit of explanation: Bioschock, like Dishonered or Fallout 3 (two other great games you must have), is set place in a world gone mad and broken, but supposed to be ideal. As the player, you are the one that again saves the day. Unlike the first two editions, this broken down city in Bioshock Infinite is not built underwater, but instead high in the clouds. The game makers wanted to bring a completely different perspective into the very beautiful looking and very originally designed gameworld of the Bioschock game. As a result, you now use grapplehooks and roller coaster rails to fly from one place to another. The story and the design are again a perfect example of how a great game should look and feel. The whole new VIGORS (specials actions like telekinese and throwing lightning) keep the game exciting. The sidekick that keeps you company (the girl you're supposed to save) makes the game feel different without bothering you. Unfortunately, the sidekicks and the explanations make this game a bit predictable. The design, the feel and the build-up of the story make up for it though. As a conclusion, you could say this is a great game you certainly will enjoy playing, but after the flawless Bioschock II you might have been used to even better by now.
Bioshock Infinite is one of the best, if not the best game I have played in a long time since. The game is full of small details in graphics and dialogue alike, so be sure to take your time when playing it. The scenes and art design combined with corresponding music are phenomenally gorgeous and they set the mood perfectly. The game has some drawbacks, for example you can carry only 2 weapons at a time but there are lots of them lying around. Plus using your powers is more fun anyway. Yes it is a first person shooter, but what it stands out for is the story and how the story is told. It's a must buy if you like to sink in to mystical worlds with a compelling story.
Bioshock Infinite might have single-handedly saved the monotonous FPS genre as it has become lately. It offers a wide range of customisations and super powers that enhance combat and relieves it from being like other modern shooters. The level design is amazing with breathtaking views and an imaginative world like no other. Also, the storyline is very cool and the player gets attached to the vivacious characters featured in the game. It also features RPG-ish elements, such as character perks which include hats, shirts, boots etc. which give different stats and enhancements. It's a game that will keep you hooked from start to finish and I would recommend to anyone who loves FPS with different game play form most modern shooters.
With Bioshock Infinite, I am thrilled and confused at the same time, the latter only because of the end. For me, it is currently the best game 2013 and I am waiting now for the DLCs. I can only recommend it to everyone to play this awesome game.
If you're a fan of the previous Bioshock games, then this is a must buy! The graphics are crisp and sharp, the gameplay is rewarding and enjoyable and the storyline grips you from start to finish. The best thing about this game however is the connection you develop with Elizabeth, she matters to both storyline and gameplay which allows for an even more in-depth experience. Don't hesitate any longer, buy this game!
A good game with some great scenery, intriguing story and good spread of different powers but the locations are very single track and don't give you as much choice in how to take on an area than say Dishonored did. You go between a period of walking and exploring an area, then you arrived in an area with some combat but generally stealth doesn't feature because as soon as you attack one person everyone springs to action and it becomes a straight shoot or power them to death. The bad guys have little to differentiate them as generally you get melee types who charge at you guns and arms blazing, some who stay back and in cover and others who roam about in the mid distance chucking fire or explosives at you. Once you clear an area you loot the objects and the corpses then move to the next area exploring as you go. You gradually pick up coins from bodies and objects lying around which you can use to buy upgrades for your powers and weapons from machines positioned around. The game also handily leaves weapons lying around in key locations where they will be useful for an upcoming location, such as RPGs or sniper rifles depending on who is coming up which largely scripts what you need to be using. Then at various points usually at the end of each stage you get a cut scene to advance the story arc. Its enjoyable but not engaging and I can't see it getting a replay once completed even with the collectibles and achievements that they leave around to try and encourage that. Listening to recordings or finding things hidden away is never that enjoyable especially when you can obtain all this info from the internet afterward anyway. Like Dishonored it was enjoyable but ultimately its quite easy to complete on medium, there is nothing that unique or beguiling and it seems a little shallow with little replay value. At least in Dishonored I felt like the areas were larger and made me think about how to get through them cleanly. Here you just have to go in hard every time to win and there isn't enough of a challenge or reward involved in how you do it so each set area kind of blends into one another. Its visually good and fun enough but with limited replay.
I was a huge fan of the first Bioshock, and felt the second to be very good but entirely more of the same, well Infinite is anything but. Fantastic new world and story with some really good battle environments to get your head around - Superb!
