I was a bit sceptical about this DLC at first and was expecting a story one, but on the other hand there was a lot of great story in the series but no arenas where you could simply enjoy the fighting, which is great fun with no doubt. The result is very good, I must say, with lots to achieve and unlock in the process. What I also like is that once dead you don't have to start all the way since Wave 1 like in Moxxi's DLC for the first Borderlands, but you can just give up your leaderboards score and proceed, which is supercool! So get out there and fight for Columbia (or Rapture :)
Not bad, but not great eitherFant | Aug. 14, 2013 | See all Fant's reviews »
I was disappointed when Irrational announced that their first of three DLC's was not story based, but a challenge mode like so many games these days force down your throat. It's pretty much a fact that Bioshock Infinite's combat isn't it's strong point. It's not bad, but it's average. This DLC focusses solely on that combat; offering four arenas to fight waves of enemies in.
The waves get harder each time, ending with things like two handymen at the same time. If you die, all your points are lost, but you cán continue. Each wave has a blue ribbon challenge, which is something not unlike an achievement. You have to do a certain thing, like killing all the enemies with a pistol, to get extra cash. Cash can be spent on weapon and vigor upgrades. Between levels you can also spend your money on concept art, videos and awesome Infinite character models in a little virtual bioshock museum.
All in all CitC is fun, but not for longer than a day. The blue ribbon challenges are sometimes way too hard, and if you fail one on wave 15, you can't retry without redoing the first 14 waves, which is a huge pain in the ass. If you enjoy Infinite and it's combat, go check this out. If you're interested in the story DLC, go buy the season pass and you'll get this for free anyway.

Don't expect any story elements in this DLC. bioshock's action packed moments is all in here. I personally loved the combat of Bioshock Infinite, and this DLC provides you the chance for more fighting in 4 different maps similar to Batman Arkham City's DLC.
My favorite moment would be the fighting in the sky. It breaks so many boundaries set by other shooters and is just so creative and exhilarating. It's a shame that the main game featured so few of those moments. This DLC definitely scratched that itch of mine.
Not for story, just for gameplay.crankafoo | Aug. 12, 2013 | See all crankafoo's reviews »
This is a DLC that revolves completely around the gameplay of BioShock: Infinite. There's no great story here or anything, just some good fun run and gun. You'll be forced to use all of your abilities to their fullest and then some with the challenges presented to you. There's a lot of replayability here in the form of blue ribbon challenges that give you a specific challenge for each wave in all of the levels. You'll be upgraded as you play through a map, but they don't carry over to your next playthrough of said map or any other you choose. It's not what a lot of people were expecting, but it's a pretty cheap DLC for a bunch of content. If you liked the combat in Infinite, get this.

Clash in the Clouds adds a fun-ish arena combat system to Bioshock Infinite, which is definitely good if you enjoyed the combat. And of course you did, because it was great. My only criticism is the feeling that it could have been more substantial; maybe not with massive overhauls to gameplay, but a little more play time would have been nice.
