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.

Nice plot, some good ideas but somehow the vigors seem less useful than their equivalents in Bioshock and the combat isn't as well formed as those earlier games. This pales in relation to the 2013 big hitters (The Last of Us, GTA5, a plethora of indies) so I'm not sure why it reviewed so highly. Good but not great.
It's so different to the first Bioshock, yet so similar at the same time. It does everything right, great story, amazing graphics and combat, and if anybody's having second thoughts about buying it because they're worried about Elizabeth being annoying, that's not an issue at all. She adds so much to an already fantastic game. Just buy it already!
This game is astonishing. Its gameplay is very good, with tons of choices between firearms, special attacks (vigors), sky-rail fights, bringing up items (like ammo or walls) from alternate dimensions and so on. The fights are challenging and if you're not good with FPSs you can still play on easier difficulty levels. The only con is the lack of boss fights, but mini-bosses are still fun to fight. Also, the plot is, just like the first Bioshock, awesome: it depicts an utopian society to explore, the characters are well designed and charismatic and the plot-twists are mind blowing. I highly recommend everyone to play this game, it's an experience that deserves to be played.
3 hours into Bioshock Infinite and the only thought that comes to my mind is: "this just might be the best game I have ever played". There is no such thing as perfect, but if you ask me to rate the best five games I have ever played, Bioshock Infinite will be there, without a doubt. You will care about the characters, you will care about the story, you will laugh, you will feel sad, and without further words, when the credits roll, you will sit on your couch with your jaw somewhere by your toes.
Wow.....I've never been so disappointed. Bioshock Infinite was being praised and getting great scores. I can tell you..the game is one of the most boring ever. Linear story, generic gameplay, boring combat. Story is complicated and tailored to American gamers. Graphics do not impress on console. If you like Dishonored you might like this one, but honestly....you are not missing out on anything if you don't buy this game.
With so much talk of how brilliant BioShock Infinite is, and it being an early GOTY contender, I feel I must have missed something, because I was not so much underwhelmed but bitterly disappointed. The first two BioShock games are among my favourites of this generation, but I have already traded Infinite, with no desire to ever return to it. The narrative is delightfully engaging and the interactions between main characters Booker and Elizabeth are a joy to watch as the story unravels. Unfortunately though the actual gameplay is repetitive, with all the strategic elements of previous BioShock's completely disregarded in favour of mindless blasting. Where previous BioShock's were thoughtful and clever, Infinite is just a dumb run and gun type game, albeit with a better story. Had it not been carrying the BioShock name I probably would have enjoyed it a little more for the run of the mill shooter it is. However as the follow up to one of my favourite games of this gen, I'm afraid I expected better. It feels that in trying to offer a new and fresh BioShock experience, we've got a game that's more like every other shooter than it's predecessors which were bursting with charm, personality, and a degree of originality.
The graphics in Bioshock Infinite are realy good, but the graphics don't make the game what it is. The game play is very solid and enjoyable. I'd finished the game in about a day and a half of grinding and carefully exploring the game, and I must say that the plot is so beautifully stunning.
Like the title says I am in Bioshock! I mean after completing this game I can tell you this is the game of the year. No thought about that! The graphics the sound the culture the expeirience this game getting you into, is awesome I mean more the awsome but I just can't find a word to describe the feeling, playing the game slowly collecting all the items (Easter Eggs) I finished it in about 20 days. Today I can tell you while playing 18 days I was wondering where does the plot go to and I was feeling like i'm in a mystery but the last 2 days blown my head off as I tell you think about the last episode of lost. Yes! that big. Lets say maybe the name of the game Bioshock is the right word to describe what I feel right now as I am sad, happy, curious and everything you can think of. That's just the plot i'm talking about not mentioning the the game itself. I will leave that to you to judge and experience hope you going to do the right thing and play that game as it will take you to another level.
Having thought the original Bioshock was a masterpiece, I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of originality and inferior plot in the sequel. Bioshock Infinite makes up for this. Instead of thousands of feet below the ocean, this time you're thousands of feet above the earth as Booker DeWitt, an ex-Pinkerton agent with a troubled past, is sent to the floating city of Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a girl held captive there, to pay off a debt. Standing in their way are the God-fearing armies of 'The Prophet' Father Comstock, a racially-charged uprising, and the truth about Elizabeth's origins. Infinite retains the shooter with mild role-playing elements game play. Keeping in line with the Bioshock series, you will collect a variety of Plasmids (which, in Infinite, are known as Vigors) - it took me a while to get used to them, but they're actually more versatile than the other games, with the ability to combine them (electrifying a crow attack, for instance). The weapon system works the same way, with the exception that you can only carry two at a time, which can get awkward at some times. There's no hacking this time around, but you are able to gain control of turrets for a limited time using the 'Possession' Vigor. Vending machines are also there, scattered across Columbia. Plenty of parallels can be drawn between Infinite and the original - whether or not Infinite is a prequel is open to debate - this is thanks to the mind-bending plot and Elizabeth's actions as a companion. There's no spoilers here, so you'd have to play it to find out, but as for Infinite as a package, fans of the original will feel right at home while being offered something different, and something different than the standard shooter for newcomers to the series.
Bioshock Inifinite is an awesome game that's worth playing, there are so many things to do. The Fun is infinite, it's a long game that I enjoyed a lot. This game will make you happy, sad, it will even make you laugh. One of my favourite things in this wonderful game are the enemies. When you fight through the game you're going to meet tons of enemies that all are different in so many ways. This game is worth your money, it's not like the other Bioshock games as it's a complicated BioShock game that will surely not waste your time.
I have really been waiting for Bioshock Infinite to arrive after I read the reviews and saw the amazing metascore. Unfortunately the game was not as good as expected. I don't need super HD whatever graphics to enjoy a game and so this average looking game still managed to create a great atmosphere. However it is very straight forward, there's not much leeway whether you turn left or right. If you wouldn't be shooting loads of enemies, I would almost call it an interactive movie. The storyline is great, your companion, Elizabeth, does an awesome job in not being annoying.
In Bioshock Infinite, you enter a world that is so real and so dreamy that you can't tell the difference. When playing my first few hours with this game, I found myself with an open mouth staring at corners of the street as the easter eggs are everywhere. This game world is so full of surprises. Being able to use a variety of cool powers and guns as you like also helps you in combat and lets you enjoy the fiction in the game.
Bioshock Infinite is the best game since, well, Bioshock. Don't let the fact that this is a first person shooter fool you. It is much, much more than a simple run-and-gun game. If you've played the original Bioshock, you know what I mean. But don't think this is like Bioshock 2 - more of the same. This game is very different than its predecessors, and yet the same in a very fundamental way. I will not go into a lengthy discussion about games as art, but let's just say I do believe it, and this game is a prime example. Infinite is described as a prequel, but it's not really that. It doesn't force feed you character origins how-this-eventually-became-that scenarios or constant nods to the original game. This is very much a game of its own. The developers themselves are hesitant to admit weather this even happens in the same universe as the original Bioshock. You will understand what they mean by this when you play the game. The story is absolutely fantastic, the game play is varied and enjoyable, the characters are amazing (even though you hardly ever see Comstock, the antagonist, his presence loom over you and the whole game world constantly). But the definite high-point of the game is its look. And I don't mean graphics from a technical standpoint. I mean the art design, or production design if you will. The sights in this game are breathtaking. It's almost poetic how this generation had an amazing Bioshock game at its beginning and a possibly even greater one at its end.
