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.

This game brings stunning visuals with outstanding storytelling mixed with morals to the FPS genre. Combat is fluid and whisks you from the rails to the city back and forth. Changes in the magical aspects are going from plasmids in the original to vigors in Bioshock Infinite. An overall great game to spend many hours hunting for voxbox's or just blasting through the main story.
Would you kindly.... buy this game?

If you are unfamiliar with previous Bioshock games, this is a fast paced, story driven game. Combat comes at you fast, and the story (which is amazing) progresses quickly as well. Not to say that the game will go by too quickly. As an FPS, you have a variety of different guns at your disposal, each with its own strengths. But to augment your bullets, you are gifted Vigors, scientific magic, which can allow you to damage/debilitate enemies, interact with some environments, and augment your own personal style of gameplay. As you progress you can purchase upgrades to your guns and Vigor, as well as finding small vials which will permanently increase your stats. Enemies use the same guns as you, so you can expect variety to be attacking you(even dudes charging at you with hooks). Newer enemies are introduced as you play, further enhancing the difficulty, and the variety of combat. One of my favorite parts of combat were the "rails" scattered throughout the levels, which allow you to jump onto in order to avoid enemies, and quickly reposition yourself. I recommend you play on the harder difficulty, it will make the game much more intense as you will need to do more than simply run and gun down the enemies that come your way, and force you to think of how to tactically take them down.

This game has gotten too many mixed reactions because so many people focus on the twist, but the twist isn't the point. It ties up the game in a complex, interesting, fascinating little knot that is a pain in the ass to untie, but if you focus on it you lose sight of the great game that supports it.
If you can look past the twist, you find a believable world (unfortunately, populated by empty drones); you find a fun FPS experience; and you find some memorable characters who will really drag you in. You find a gorgeous city, with some wonderful skyboxes. You lose yourself, for a short time, if you let yourself.
It's what games are meant to do.

Columbia is one heck of a city. Where as Bioshock 1 and 2 were underwater, Bioshock Infinite is up in the clouds. I loved the atmosphere and the aesthetics. The people of Columbia felt like they belonged there, natives, instead of being cut and paste generic NPCs. The story was great, with twists and turns that made me feel like a bit of a creep (Sorry, Elizabeth!). Combat felt great, especially when you could use rails to zip around the battlefield. Learning about Columbia and the work that went on there was quite fascinating. The bizarre outcome of that work definitely reminds you that you're playing a Bioshock game.
