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.Report this review
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!Report this review
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.Report this review
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!Report this review
