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.

I like this game. But I cannot give it good scores that they gave at Metacritic. The game has a very interesting style and atmosphere. There are many connections to racism and real world politics. There is much colour and strong feelings. The story is still the best thing that this game captured me. Full of surprises and an exciting plot. I could call it some kind of psychological thriller. This game made me cry (I'm strong man;D). Still, the gameplay experience with first-person shooting had some juicy spells and utilities which were very casual. Enemies are usually stupid and too aggressive. Ok, most of enemies are fundamentalists who are facing the "False Shepherd" who is getting their lamb out of the paradise. But still I was disappointed with the gameplay basics. There is nothing new with the gameplay mechanics. It could be that I'm a perfectionist. But if this game is at sale with a juicy price and you need some reason to have intense feelings and crying, get this game without hesitating!

One thing off the bat, this game looks gorgeous, the whole city in the sky theme is beautifully represented and very well integrated with a bit of futuristic and a bit of old-timey style to fit in with the 1910's timeline, the backdrops are generally blue skies with some floating buildings, but they still look amazing. As for gameplay, the game is quite linear, there are areas where you have multiple options of where to set up for a fight, and the combat is constructed as a succession of shooting galleries where you clear out a bunch of enemies in an area before you move on to the next and do the same there, which is a common fps way of doing things, what elevates this game above others is the story, it instantly grabs you with an amazing intro section that sets up the tone to come, and constantly throws some tidbits and hits at you that keep you intrigued and wanting to keep playing just to find out what comes next. To summarize: Beautiful graphics, great theme, amazing story, but common gameplay that is done slightly above average.

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.
