BioShock Infinite Review

maximum pc
20 September 2013
  • Excerpt: How do you critique a dream? It’s the problem we face in reviewing Irrational Games’s BioShock Infinite , a game that straddles the gap between an adventure title and a first-person shooter. That’s not a reflection of its overt design—BioShock Infinite is, at its core, a title that will leave those with less-developed keyboard and mouse skills a bit sad.
  • Pros: Excellent pacing; wonderful character development; a story you’ll spend hours talking about; barbershop quartet.
  • Cons: Combat can feel a bit uninspired if not downright easy (save for the game’s final mission); linear.

Bioshock Infinite – Review (360, PS3, PC)

7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The last mainstream first-person game we played that had no multiplayer modes stuck on for good measure was Dishonored, and you may remember that it was very well received. Now we have BioShock Infinite, a game whose only aspiration is to submerge your head in a charged ocean of suspense, complex perspectives, and unforgettably weird imagery.

BioShock Infinite Review

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: The Good : Fine single player action. Solid pacing. The Bad : Enemy AI isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Elizabeth is a very odd creature. The Ugly : Story lacks cohesiveness. Ten minute ending movie is nearly incomprehensible. I’m going to go against the grain here and say that, while I really liked BioShock Infinite, I don’t think it is as good as the previous BioShock titles. Rapture was a beautiful, self-consistent world full of wonder and intrigue.

  • Excerpt: Columbia, Bioshock Infinite ’s floating city in the sky, is a vividly imagined place, a marriage of impossible engineering and incredible artistry. Its buildings sway amongst the clouds buoyed atop huge zeppelins of air; its streets are lined with rose gardens, picnics, statues of the founding fathers and candy floss stalls; and its population is drunk on the religious and xenophobic preachings of its founder and self-styled prophet, Zachary Comstock.

Bioshock: Infinite (PC)

  • Excerpt: Let's get right to the chase. From my point of view as a Christian gamer, it's impossible for me to say that I wasn't slightly offended while playing Bioshock Infinite. Coming into this game with no expectations or understanding of where the story would lead me, I was quite honestly surprised by the the way the game presented itself at first glance. However, the further I got into the game, the more I understood that it's much deeper than I would have imagined.
  • Pros: Enjoyable gameplay; Smooth controls; Excellent story; Jaw-dropping graphics
  • Cons: Enemy AI tends to be unresponsive to the player; Gameplay feels like a step down from previous games due to the two weapon limit; Enemy waves become repetitive

  • Conclusion: Otherwise, BioShock Infinite is a great first-person shooter made with skill and creativity. It feels smashing to play it, but it’s almost even more fun to watch someone else play it.
  • Pros: Its video game art direction at its finest, intelligent level design, addictive combat, memorable scenes and battles, overall terrific fun, great musical score;
  • Cons: A bit on the short side, some AI bugs here and there.

  • Summary: Though it sometimes struggles to reconcile its genre-constrained combat with its lofty storytelling goals, BioShock Infinite exhibits ambition and a boldness of theme rarely seen in FPS titles.

Bioshock Infinite - PC Review

IGN
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: BioShock Infinite aims so damn high – fittingly, since its alternate-reality 1912 city of Columbia literally floats atop clouds – that it’s a wonder it successfully hits any of its lofty goals at all. But it does hit them, again and again. A stunning original world of retro-sci-fi technology and gorgeous scenery. A cast of fully fleshed-out, memorable characters who deliver real emotional impact. A great villain and a greater monster.

Cheat Happens
29 March 2013
  • Excerpt: I still have the notebook I used the first time I saw Bioshock Infinite being played live. It was at E3 a few years ago, behind closed doors. As a huge fan of the original Bioshock and System Shock before it, I was excited to check out the next game in the series but cautious due to the fact that I didn't think anything could pass up my experiences to with the previous titles. Looking back at the notebook, I wrote down words like "mind blowing" and "game changing.
