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 is perfect. Simple as that. I'm fairly certain you've heard nothing but great things about this game and it absolutely deserves it. Gameplay is phenomenal and story is perfection. Don't just play this game and follow the story. Understand the world around it. Dig deep into the lore and universe of Bioshock and you'll find this game to be everything and more. This is how video games should be. This is what will change how people view video games as they will see it's more than just a game, it's an experience.

In an age where a story for an FPS is like a story for an action movie, Bioshock: Infinite truly shines brighter than everything else. Every second of the game, every minute moment, is filled with detail and excellent craftsmanship. The game goes where no other games have, from the sheer overwhelming idea of a city sustaining itself above the clouds, to the underlying plot of the rise of anti-racism and the co-existing white supremacist clans that join in, the story and experience is flawless, aside from a few confusing side missions.
Infinite is a perfect example of how to create a supporting character with sufficient AI that isn't just pissing the player off. Sure, several times I found myself thinking her weak in the stomach, but thats because she was, shes only a teenager and has never seen violence, much more a man murdered. This just further developed her character.
I can honestly say this game is superior to both its predecessors, much less most other FPS titles out there just flaunting a 4-hour campaign (I'm talking to you COD). You will not regret buying this game.
Fun and engagingArthmael77 | Dec. 1, 2013 | See all Arthmael77's reviews »
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.
