Summary: BioShock Infinite had an interesting run, with player reception all over the board. Some loved it, some hated it, others reveled in its celebration of violence, some disapproved. It's probably going to be a long time before we get to debate the merits of another BioShock game again though, considering the fact that Irrational Games has dissolved, and is handing over the franchise to 2K.
Excerpt: Dewitt Investigations, just another gloomy day at the office of a private detective. Then the most beautiful dame you'd ever seen walks in and wants your help. Not only that but she wants to help you find your missing ward, a young girl named Sally. The mysterious beauty walks to the window and holds a smoke gingerly between her fingers. As I always say “Pretty girls don't light their own cigarette.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 1 needs more Humphrey Bogart
3 June 2013
Excerpt: So, I generally like to start these things off with a personal anecdote of some sort to set the mood. In fact, I reviewed the first piece of BioShock Infinite DLC, “Clash in the Clouds,” and I began by talking about some of the stupid things I spent my money on as a teenager. But this time around, Irrational is sort of forcing my hand.
Conclusion: Qu'on se le dise : BioShock Infinite profite d'une réalisation soignée. Au niveau technique, l'affichage est satisfaisant, bien que des textures grossières et autres modélisations terminés à la serpe sont présentes. On constate clairement quelques défauts inhérents à l'Unreal Engine 3, désormais légèrement vieillissant. Clairement, c'est au niveau de la direction artistique que le jeu sort son épingle du jeu.
Pros: Scénario très efficace et immersif, Background travaillé, Direction artistique de qualité, Gameplay plus réactif que par le passé, La présence d'Elizabeth, Durée de vie satisfaisante
Cons: Quelques imperfections techniques, Level-design parfois un peu étriqué
Excerpt: My experience previewing BioShock Infinite at E3 2011 still remains fresh in my mind. I can still feel the soft cushion of my seat and my fingers curling over the armrests as I witnessed a visual onslaught of Booker fast traveling across skylines trouncing foes in epic fashion with breath left to spare as he exchanges dialogue with Elizabeth in surround sound. It really is hard to believe that two years had gone by since.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two PC Review
7 April 2014
Excerpt: While Burial at Sea: Episode One set up a wonderful theme and reused the Bioshock setting of Rapture, with Elizabeth looking cool in her iconic 50s noir suit, the DLC itself was a bit disappointing. The content was too short to make much of an impact, was very linear in design and combat, and didn’t construct much with the plot until the very end.
Conclusion: If you're allergic to spoilers and have still to play the first episode of Burial at Sea - you should do yourself a favour and play it before reading on... The time has come to tie all the loose ends together in the Bioshock saga, at least as far as its creator goes - as Ken Levine has decided to wind down Irrational Games, start anew and give up the Bioshock franchise.
