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.

Bioshock Infinite is a great FPS that oozes atmosphere and has a superb storyline! Minor gripe is that sometimes the emphasis is a bit too much on all-out-war shooting, but luckily not too much. Seriously recommended no matter what console you have.
If you liked Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2 you will love this game, totally lives up to the trillogy. Same great game play. Same great look and feel. and at this price they are practically giving it away. BUY IT NOW
One of the BEST game for ps3 of 2013!!!! Incredible story, graphic and atmosphere. All this in a very discount price!! Thank you ZAVVI!!!!!!!!
Simply one of the best FPS of all time. It is beyond the usual gaming experience. Has depth to the story and also to every little detail. Lastly, Elizabeth is simply the best femail character ever created in a game. Top notch purchase!
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.
Great game for a low price. Gameplay was typically Bioshock and the story was quite stunning. The delivery was fast and without any problems.
Great overall experience. Very fast shipment and the title is one of the best games
An epic adventure live 10 years before the first Bioshock. Remember that one? Forget it! This is a totally new atmosphere and you love it! Another great game that keep you hours and hours with a joypad on your hands and allow you to live an outstanding adventure. Must buy!
I liked it from the first minute to the last, and the price is excellent.
Bioshock Infinite has a great story, great graphics and a beautifully imagined world.
The design, sound and AI in Bioshock Infinite is beyond my expectations. It has an amazing world and wonderful history.
One of the best game ever! A must have for all
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!
I'm playing this game and I love it, best of the series: D Thanks zavvi: D
If you enjoyed Bioshock 1 and 2, don't miss out this thrilling and amazing history that Bioshock Infinite prepared to us. New powers, new weapons, great idilic landscapes to enjoy again this great game.
The best saga for PS3.This title is an absolutely must have.If you look for a good story or a good shooter this is your game
One of my favorites and also one of the most memorable experiences ever percieved in gaming. You won't regret it at all
Bioshock Infinite is truly one of the best games of this year. Everything is from "the highest shelf" - the story, the game play, the visuals. It is a must-have.
Bioshock Infinite is one of the most incredible game! Epic story and the gameplay of past bioshock has been increased with incredible moves. Simply. BUY IT!
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.
One of the best games I have ever played. Up there with the first Bioshock. It is that amazing!
Bioshock Infinite is absolutely brilliant! Highly recommend.
Bioshock Infinite is an excellent sequel to the award-winning franchise and one of the best games of this generation.
Bioshock Infinite is a good game, at a good price and with good delivery.
I played the other two games and this one is again excellent, great graphics and good story, a must for any fan of Bioshock and shooters!
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.
From the word go I have been a fan of Bioshock Infinite, and again this installment did not disappoint. This is a must have for any FPS fan!
Bought a game from France. Shipping was long (more than a week) but that was predictable. Low prices and good tracking system, zavvi is my new stuff provider and I definitely love it!
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.
I enjoyed Bioshock Infinite with its rich storyline. After the credits you will be left with your mouth open, staring at the TV. The ending is amazing.
Bioshock Infinite is an absolute, unquestioning, immaculate, pure-bred, immaculate, undeniable, full, irrefutable, perfect masterpiece.
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 Infinite is a game with stunning gameplay and an unmatched story.
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.
Bioshock Infinite is one of those games that will keep you thinking long after you've finished it. The story starts simple enough, but not long after you'll start questioning what seemed simple, and by the end of the game you'd appreciate that subtleties that went into it. Gameplay- and graphic-wise, the game is not outstanding, there are other games which play and look better. It's the story that ties the whole package together and makes the whole package an excellent game, not by today's standards, but probably for years to come.
I enjoyed the first two BioShock games a lot. I knew Bioshock Infinite wasn't going to be much like those two. In fact, apart from the powers you have, nothing is the same. Even though the setting is quite nice and the floating city of Columbia is unique, I do miss Rapture. I miss being cornered by a Big Daddy and I also miss the gathering of Adam with a Little Sister to protect. The combat just isn't the same as it used to be, the way I liked it: the reason I fell in love with the BioShock franchise. Why change a winning concept? This is nice too, but this isn't BioShock anymore.
Wow, I've never played the Bioshock games (well I have played demos) but I had to get Bioshock Infinite. The environment is amazingly beautiful, there is intense combat with powerfu vigors as they call them, they're like powers. Elizabeth is the main part of the game, she will aid you throughout the game and you will find out through the story who she is. If you like FPS games with a good story, then get this!
Bioshock Infinite has a great story and game play. It's a must-play.
Bioshock Infinite is an early contender for Game of the Year, it's as simple as that. After being delayed three times I was sceptical about Bioshock Infinite, but within an hour of playing it already cleared those fears. And it only got better from there. Whereas Bioshock 1 drifted off towards the end, Infinite delivers through the whole play through. The game has done such a fantastic job of creating a setting for the story, and the story is really what drives the game. There are really no other recent releases comparable story-wise to Infinite. Elizabeth brings the game to life, the developers have created a brilliant AI system for her. Although the game is really one long escort mission, it does not feel like one. Elizabeth can handle herself and stays out of the line of fire, even throwing ammo your way among other things. Game play wise, I have played better but there are no major problems there. Vigors (basically Bioshock 1's Plasmids) give you something extra in a fight, helping when ammo runs out but also helping clear crowds or stopping the heavy hitters such as the massive Handy-men, or the gatling-gun wielding Patriots. The Skylines also add something extra to the game play, allowing you to travel away from or towards battle, shoot at high speed or jump down on top of enemies. The equipment in the game also helps, giving you bonuses such as the ability to set enemies alight with melee, although not always useful they can be switched at anytime. Where the game really comes into its own however is Elizabeth's ability to tear holes in the world and introduce new elements to battle. Sometimes she will be able to bring a turret to the field, or new guns, or even allies to help the fight, and it is these that really make the change (game play wise) between Bioshock Infinite and other games. They just help to keep the game fresh and are a really interesting mechanic. Really though, it is the story that runs this game. Similarly to Bioshock 1, you will want to replay Infinite after you're done. I wish I could say more but it would ruin such a fantastic story.
There's a world in the clouds above your heads and this is your opportunity to take it in. And as you'd expect from such a city, there are beautiful sights, a fully realised vista filled with conversations, people going about their day... until the beasts are unleashed. I can't say much without spoiling the plot, but the blue skies go grey and leave you questioning everything. What is good and what is bad? Morals and views get cast into serious doubt. The only downside with Bioshock Infinite is that the shooting can be a little erratic. But it's still perfectly serviceable with plenty of new powers, a variety of novel weapons and the opportunity to upgrade them all again. So breathe in the world of Columbia. You won't look back.
What a fantastic and visually stunning game Bioshock Infinite is.The beautiful but dank art deco environment of Rapture has been exchanged for the bright and sunny city of Columbia. But don't let that fool you, it's still as dangerous and you will still feel that same sensation of being isolated. Irrational games have really worked their magic here. Let me reassure you, this is not a mindless button basher, this game has personality, story and the visuals that we have come to know and love of Bioshock. I would rate this a strong 9 out of 10. Go and order it!
If you are undecided on whether to buy Bioshock Infinite then please direct your attention to the nearest dictionary and look up the definition of awesome, for that is what you will be getting from this purchase. This game has you hooked from the beginning, with nods to the original Bioshock in the opening sequence, and hidden pop culture references throughout. There are certain games that you simply cannot put down and keep telling yourself that "You will stop in a minute" when actually several more hours come to pass before you make good on that statement. Stop reading this review and buy Bioshock Infinite now! The story is interesting, the characters, story and environment are deep and the visuals beautiful, and the vision of an alternate 1912 is simply stunning and well realised. From the oppression of immigrants, to the revolutionary uprising the whole experience is not to be missed.
