Welcome To Columbia!
The year is 1912.
With the United States emerging as a world power, the floating City of Columbia is a mighty symbol of American ideals, launched with great fanfare to the cheers of a captivated public. But what begins as an endeavour of hope soon turns to disaster, as the city disappears into the clouds, its whereabouts unknown. The greatest accomplishment in American history has vanished without a trace.
The player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He will develop a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt will learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

After enjoying the previous titles in the series, I had high hopes for this one.
The feel was very different, but all for the best.
The gameplay was quite fun with the new addition of the travelling/weapon. I had far too much fun using my melee attacks and finishing them off with the track mechanism.
One thing I felt that has stuck with all 3 games is the atmosphere. Much like a musician has a unique sound, this game carries their unique feel from each title without a hitch.
I found the story to be stronger with Infinite, which was a pleasant surprise. It seems like most games are focusing more on providing a solid story to accompany the gameplay, and it makes me happy to be around in this era of gaming!
Amazing graphics and extremely in-depth storybuttkicker845 | Nov. 28, 2013 | See all buttkicker845's reviews »
I've always been a fan of the bioshock series and this game blows the first two out of the water! With its amazing graphics and smooth transition from each location it deserves the title of best visual design. While the story line is even better than the look of the game with its twists and turns its will always keep you guessing whats going to happen next. Most definitely one of the best games of the year!
A Game Worthy of the Bioshock Namebnamsrom | Nov. 25, 2013 | See all bnamsrom's reviews »
Bioshock 2 was a great game. It receives too much flack for not being as good as the first one. what people need to remember is that much of what made the first Bioshock amazing was the atmosphere and the isolation that came with exploring the aquatic city of Rapture for the first time. By the time the second installment came around, players were already familiar with rapture, and even improved combat and new game mechanics weren't enough for many to make up for the familiar territory. Bioshock Infinite takes the player about as far as humanly possible from rapture with the floating city of Columbia. The protagonist gets a name and a voice this time around with Booker DeWitt, who has been sent to the city on a job that, if completed, will wipe away his debt. Saying much more will be saying too much, but just know that this story delivers and left me in awe. while many games seem to use story as way to support gameplay mechanics, Infinite's story can stand on its own and, like the first Bioshock, sets the bar for storytelling in video games. Gameplay in Infinite does not take the backseat by any means. Combat is larger in scale and the addition of the skyline mechanism makes enemy encounters more mobile and amazing to look at than ever. Bioshock Infinite needs to be played by fans of the series and those who enjoy a fantastic gaming experience.

Hands down this is a FPS with an amazing story. There were times I was just simply mesmerized by the visuals, while other times I was reeling from the plot twists and surprises. This game is fun, addictive and amazing. This was my first venture into the Bioshock world, so I cant compare it to previous titles, but now I'm so engrossed I want to go back and play the other titles.

The gameplay is pretty similar to the other Bioshock games, but holy cow is this game filled with eye candy. Every scene is a sweeping vista, which I guess you can pull off when you have a city in the sky. Some neat new gameplay mechanics with the skyrails, and having an interesting female companion is always a good thing (as Half-Life 2 has shown us) and helps a lot with immersing you in the world and story. Definitely more so that just being the typical silent protagonist, she helps a lot with helping the world come alive.
Great game! If you liked the previous Bioshock games, this is the best one yet.
