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.

First half is masterful, second half is pretentious schlocksycomantis1991 | May 14, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
This game grabbed me immediately. The story and world are beyond fascinating. The old-timey elitist racists covered up by a bright and jolly overtone was expertly done. The technology all around Columbia is really cool, even looking from nearing a century past when the game's fictional world exists. Pretty much every character is memorable, and you look forward to seeing them, especially the villains. The combat is tightly-crafted, the vigors are all useful, i love that you can have Elizabeth fetch health packs for you so you don't have to interrupt the action. Many of the missions in the first few hours are awe-inspiring in terms of creativity and fun, and you quickly grow attached to the world and the people in it. The second half is where it takes a nosedive for me. The gameplay turns into a "run here and shoot a bunch" style of gameplay that COD would be jealous of. The story becomes convoluted, not from too much information, but because it feels like they didn't know what to do and just threw a super Shamyalan-style ending and hoped they'd come off as geniuses, which worked on most people, but I found it pretentiously preachy, uncreative, and downright unsatisfying. It starts as a great experience that quickly devolves into what-the-f***-ery about 4 or 5 hours in. I am glad I played those first few hours though, and if they weren't attached to the last 4 hours, I'd gladly play them over and over

Perfection exists and has a name, Bioshock Infinite. When I played at first time Bioshock, i thought that i will never play a best FPS game. Rapture was incredible, but when i saw Columbia... Probably we will never see games with so incredible worlds. Every thing is perfect, everything fits, everything is well thought out. And the result of all this things is Bioshock Infinite. I hope we will se soon another creation of Kevin Levine.

Last episode of the Bioshock franchise, Infinite takes place in whole different area. Forget the eerie underwater city of Rapture. This time we must explore the flying city of Columbia. You’re Booker DeWitt and your job is to find a mysterious young lady called Elizabeth. A “simple” mission that will make you confront the leader of Columbia and the zealous fanatics who inhabit the city. Columbia is the real star of the game. The city was beautifully designed with lots of details to discover. Gameplaywise, Infinite is similar to the other Bioshock. It’s a FPS with special powers such as telekinesis or animal control. The game’s environments offer a variety of situations you must adapt to by using all of your possibilities. The game is fun and quite long (Up to 15 hours to complete it the first time). The story is also interesting.
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.
