Summary: Yeah, there's some storyline elements that can really make one think. The twist towards the end can be very enjoyable. Graphics are polished and stylish. Unfortunately, the rest of the game is garbage. The gunplay feels clumsy, and most of my time in game was spent rummaging through trashcans looking for coins that I would never get to spend on anything useful. Playing this game felt tedious. I recommend finding a story synopsis and reading it.
Summary: Upon early impressions of watching gameplay demos, I was skeptical about the new direction of the series with the sky city setting along with all the over the top action that was being demonstrated. I thought to myself, out with the old and face the new. Of course, they had to go a different direction in terms of everything otherwise it would've just been a retread. So no longer the slower, methodical, and more grounded action of the original.
Good game, but ruined by poor controls, sub par mechanics, and an idiotic save system.

Summary: I have loved both the previous titles in the BioShock series and really found the underwater city of Rapture to be both a captivating and nerve wracking experience. When BioShock Infinite was announced I was admittedly worried if 2K would be able to capture the creepiness in Columbia as they were able to in Rapture. In short, the creepiness is still there; just not as much as it was in Rapture.
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.
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.
Summary: pro: - great atmosphere very immerse and well designed level - very detailed environment design - good storyline cons: - can only bring two weapons at a time, ugh (you're forced to use some weapons that you're not upgrading) - voxaphones not as detail and interesting as audio recording in Bioshock 1 and 2 - regular/mediocre battle compared to bioshock 1 and 2 - not enough enemy variation - story progression very slow and keep you guessing until last 10 minutes of the...
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.
