Enjoyable, but a definite step back in the legendary "shock" series

Summary: This game is fun. Yeah, I gave it three stars. If it were another developer it might have received four. Is that fair? I think so. It is impossible not to compare a game to its predecessors, and sights were set so high by both Bioshock and Bioshock 2 that this game feels a bit flat. The good is the story. The story is good, but not the revelation it was made out to be.
Summary: BioShock Infinite is a new look on the BioShock games that almost completely changes the look and feel of BioShock. It's an OK game. I love the old BioShock games but this one for me was missing a few elements that made me love the other two.
Infinite possibilities...just not in this game. :(

Summary: I loved BioShock 1 & 2, this game well... As a FPS it is okay, the weapons choices and mechanics are mediocre. Which is sad since most of the weapons in the previous games were fun to use. I wish they would have spent more time making the FPS game play more enjoyable. The vigors are lacking, most of them just aren't worth using. I will admit throwing crows into people's faces was tons of fun. The gear upgrades are lame.
Summary: The game looks great, the story is great but sometimes confusing. But if your a fan of 1st person shooters then this game is for you. It's full of guns and super powers that makes it fun to defeat enemies. But be careful, this game keeps up a challenge, there are some parts that will get you angry, so I suggest you play on the easiest difficulty.
Summary: Gameplay is considerably less strategic than the original Bioshock. Skylines offer a bit more fun, but they are are few and far between. Story is OK, but gets sorta off the rails near the end. I couldn't bring myself to like the characters either, although the Lutece twins are hilarious. All in all, a big let down.
Pros: BS3 is a great game if it was a stand alone and not a sequel.
Cons: This game is junk compared to Bioshock 1 and even 2. They messed up the plazmids. The weapons are junk and the a.i. is less than intelligent . The game is short and way way to easy. I kept losing interest in the story line but thats just me.
Summary: Ok before I begin my Review I think it's important to note that I am a HUGE Bioshock fan and found Bioshock 1 to be a Masterpiece in every which way. One of the greatest games I've ever played. Bioshock 2 wasn't quite as good but it was still a amazing game none the less. Alright now we've reached Bioshock: Infinite. Ever since it was first announced I was very confused by it and confused by this weird new direction of the franchise.
Summary: I am a giant fan of the first two BioShocks, so my expectations were incredibly high. Unfortunately, I wish Infinite had the same depth and expanse as the originals. While Columbia is beautiful and the details that make up the world are perfect, I found the game to be very linear. Apart from being able to go here and there to discover a voxophone or an infusion, there is little in the way of story development unless you stick to the main story.
Summary: I loved the first one and even the second one. I bought b. infinite hoping it would be good, well it wasn't bad - wasn't as good as the first two but wasn't bad. The things I didn't like : you could only carry two weapons, the controller buttons can not be reconfigured to your likings, I personally really don't like using the r3 and l3 buttons for ANYTHING.
Summary: Having recently played Last of Us I wanted to find something similar- high budget, story led action game that would make me go wow. Im sad to say that despite the reviews this didnt live up to the hype for me and I didnt even get close to completing the campaign. I may go back to it at some point but given that my games cabinet now contains GTA V, Beyond Two Souls and TLoU its right at the bottom of the pile im afraid.
