BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea: Episode 2 DLC Review
14 April 2014
Summary: What Bioshock has achieved as a series is nothing short of groundbreaking. Introducing complex storylines with interesting themes and philosophies to an audience that simply isn't used to being challenged in that way is exactly what the industry needed.
Excerpt: 2K and Irrational Games released BioShock Infinite last March which took players from the ocean to the skies. Players would step into the lives of Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth while leaving the world of Big Daddies and Little Sisters behind--for now.
Summary: I ended up enjoying " BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea " far more than I expected to. Infinite's painfully slow pace had soured me to the series slightly, but with this expansion I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying every second of it.

24 November 2013
Excerpt: BioShock Infinite on its release earlier this year received the sort of critical praise that would make a pop-star buy a private jet in an orgy of self-congratulation. Flawed but hugely ambitious, Irrational created a sweeping, involving narrative and world that left many gagging for more.
Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 1 – Review (360)
16 November 2013
Excerpt: In 2007 Irrational Games’ vision of Rapture provided one of the most engaging and haunting backdrops for a game in memory. Bioshock was born and a genre was changed forever as Bioshock combined an almost perfectly horrific narrative with suspense, frights and gameplay that just took a giant leap...
Conclusion: With the Rapture's cameo at the end of Infinite, it wasn’t clear how Irrational could make the same trick work twice. The answer is simple; the return Rapture in Burial at Sea isn't a trick. It's a venue to express an original idea inside stylish and increasingly sophisticated framework.
