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.

One of the best plot ever seen in a video gamesmilzoboboz | March 25, 2015 | See all smilzoboboz's reviews »
I don't like FPS and mostly I don't like killing people (even if fictional) in general and I think that is the reason why I was able to dive so deep on this title's story.
The game itself is pretty easy (there are modes beyond normal difficulty, so probably FPS fans may enjoy better with them), and that's actually a good thing because you can concentrate on story and story fragments since plot is where this game excels (and I mean it). Everything start slow but, progressing, events rush to a point you're disoriented and speechless. Every word added there would be a spoiler, so I'd better keep my mouth shout.
Graphics are excellent, one of the best use of Unreal Engine 4 you can ever see and with great performance. Sound compartment is flawless too, both on effects and music.
There are only 2 things I didn't like which strip the 100/100 from this title: Elizabeth being too "unrealistic" or doll-like and too much playtime to finish the game, I'd like to have probably a little more than half of the 15h it took for me to complete the story line (I got bored halfway through).
To recap, totally recommended to anyone on any OS (run with excellent performance on linux too), this was one of the best game I ever played.

If you played the previous 2 Bioshock then you are in for an awesome experience. I played both previous titles and had a lot of fun. Loving the plasmas, guns and tough battles. Worry not because all of that is definitely on this title too! The biggest change, of course, is the environment. No longer are you trapped under the sea within dark and gritty halls; this time you are literally jumping above the clouds. With an outstanding Art Direction, I was wondering around the town looking at every small detail. I was loving the game from the very start. You start earning different plasmids along the way, just like in previous games. You have some new powers and some returning ones. I really liked how they felt and their animations. It never got old. I played it with a gamepad, which I think is key to enjoying it a bit more. I couldn't get used to playing it with Keyboard and Mouse. Overall, this is one of my all-time favorite games. And it deserves to be in the top 10 games of all-time.
Excellent Story, Slightly Disappointing CombatTheLMan101 | March 5, 2015 | See all TheLMan101's reviews »
This is definitely a recommendation for me - let's get that out of the way, now. The story is incredible, the characters are likeable and dislikable whenever they need to be and Columbia is a beautiful place to explore and learn more about.
I just wanted to clear that up before I talk about it's flaws. I find that the best ways to work out if you like something is to hear what you don't like and, as I definitely like this game, I should probably take a more critical look at it.
The biggest flaw is in the gameplay. Not that it's bad, it's just a bit dull and not massively updated from the original Bioshock. I mean, yes, the Sky Hook is a fantastic way to explore the battlefield and works really well but, aside from that, there isn't much else you do except shoot dudes.
Furthermore, the element of choice present in the first game is significantly less present here. Don't get me wrong; you still make decisions - and they briefly change the game - but you don't make moral decisions and even little things are quite irritatingly predetermined. There was a point where I went to get an upgrade and the person guarding it gave me two options; ignore the upgrade, or take it and start a gunfight. It might've been nice if I could offer to buy it or something. And, while that is admittedly somewhat nit-picky, it strikes me as something clearly missing from the first game.
Even with all these things said, this doesn't change the fact that, not only have I beaten the game several times, but I also believe this to be my GOTY 2013. Just looking around Columbia and seeing all the incredible sights in and of themselves is totally worth playing it. The somewhat lacking gameplay doesn't hinder your ability to beat the game and it shouldn't. Definitely recommended.
The best of Bioshockgarocco | Feb. 6, 2015 | See all garocco's reviews »
Bioshock Infinite is a game that impressed me very positively, I thought the game would be weak and leave much to be desired, but was simply wonderful. The game's graphics are one of the strength point, it has an amazing quality leaving any player impressed. The colors are very bright and flashy which causes the player to further involve the environment. The game's gameplay is not very good, the controls respond poorly badly to all commands and interaction with the scenario is also bad, leaving the game even more annoying. Unlike rich scenarios, this is extremely weak in this regard because everywhere seem to be repeated. Without a doubt I recommend this game to everyone as well as being extremely fun and interesting, graphics and characters are perfect. In addition, the game can fully immerse players in the plot which is a very positive point.
Really best game ever !cubecka | Dec. 8, 2014 | See all cubecka's reviews »
The Good: ☺Interesting world with great looking visuals, artwork and graphics ☺Unique characters and their voice actings ☺One of the best plots I've ever experienced ☺Mindblowing, unexpected ending! ☺Excellent and beautiful soundtrack ☺Fights with the tougher enemies are intense (aka Heavy Hitters) ☺Probably the first game ever with an A.I. companion that is actually useful and well developed
The Bad ☹Very linear levels to explore, compared to the original games ☹Middle chapters of the game are a bit weaker ☹Generic combat, unintresting weapons and 2-weapon system makes gameplay weakest part of the game
my rate 9,6/10
