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.
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.
Conclusion: Bioshock Infinite is definitely a game fans of the original will enjoy. It's not quite as original, and it some ways feels a like it has targeted a mass market audience. Nonetheless, an intriguing story and deep characters make it worth your time alone.
Excerpt: Steam might already have a casual martial arts-themed game in Rag Doll Kung Fu , but for Nunchuk Games, that's still not enough. They've put together an interesting and unique game called Ninja Reflex , and the Steam version of it has a lot of little things that fans of Valve Software's games (the Half-Life series and Portal , specifically) will find amusing.
Excerpt: Bioshock takes place in an underwater colony called Rapture so as you might expect the environment is rather limited indoors, with the occasional glimpse through a porthole. As the player descends into Rapture, he/s able to have a look at the vast underwater setting surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, most of the game takes place indoors, not allowing for any underwater exploration.
Pros: Graphics and sound effects are stunning, intriguing plot
Cons: Enemies look 'dated', player feels constrained, claustrophobic environments, enemy AI can be irritating...
Conclusion: In a nutshell, beyond any shadow of doubt, BioShock is an excellent single-player shooter experience. The undeniable quality of this title and its emphasis on true and not pseudo-mature storytelling and character development make it a must-have for every self-respecting gamer. On the other hand, the game is not without its faults, which, in all honesty, is true for just about every single thing on planet Earth (and possibly beyond).
Pros: Excellent story, atmosphere, AI, graphics, sound, plasmids, you can hypnotize one big daddy to fight against another - this in itself is worth the price of admission;
Cons: Feels claustrophobic at times, backtracking through levels; menial tasks used to lengthen campaign.
Excerpt: Welcome to Rapture A l'origine fut une série de jeux PC qui, en des temps anciens, furent de véritables révolutions et sonnent toujours dans la mémoire des joueurs comme une référence inattaquable, qui possédaient le doux nom de system shock. Ce furent des mélanges de FPS et de jeux de rôle. En effet, si ces jeux se jouaient à la vue à la 1ère personne, ils intégraient, fait nouveau, des éléments de jeux de rôle tels que l'ajout de capacités nouvelles au personnage.
Conclusion: Alles in allem ist BioShock Infinite wohl einfach nur ein genialer Nachfolger zu seinen beiden Vorgängern. Ich bin noch immer von der Stadt begeistert obwohl mein erstes Betreten doch schon wieder eine Weile zurückliegt. Auch muss ich wirklich sagen, dass ich mich sehr über den 1999 Modus gefreut habe, denn man nach dem ersten Durchspielen freischaltet.
