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.
The Darkness II
The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness. Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that puts you in the role of Jackie Estacado, don of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient force of chaos known as The Darkness.
It's been two years since Jackie used his power to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend's murder. He's been unable to shake the memory of Jenny's death since bottling up The Darkness and now it wants out. A botched attempt on Jackie's life opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a brutal and personal journey as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motives of The Darkness.
Bioshock Infinite ends up giving you a less interesting environment to explore with a weaker cast of characters and a far too heavily foreshadowed ending. The enemies and powers themselves also don't end up being as interesting and the powers and guns and upgrade stalls from the first two games now seem out of place in this new setting. Some very poor story choices and requiring you to travel back through areas you have already been through also hurt the game. The Darkness 2 is an enjoyable first-person shooter, it ends up losing some of the style and more interesting moments of the first title to give a more linear game that throws you into action much faster. It's not likely to be as memorable as the first with it's quirks but it is an enjoyable game that also includes a co-op mode. It ends with a cliffhanger and there has been no mention of a sequel though.
Bioshock Infinite is yet another game in the Bioshock series, more or less a spiritual successor to System Shock. Graphics are stylised and are looking nice, but nothing to write home about, soudtrack is OK and the gameplay is average mix of arcade shooter with plasmaids (powers, like shooting electricity out of your hand or summon crows to kill your enemies), nothing mindblowing or great. In my opinion, where this game fails is the plot and puzzles, because plot is extremely basic and simplistic, with the character being extremely stereotypical disney princess, which is painful to watch. As for puzzles, there are pretty much none other than simon says. The Darkness 2 is entirely different story. Great cel-shaded comic book inspired graphics, great soundtrack and perfect and engaging arcade style shooter gameplay, at which Infinite sadly fails. The story is also really good and this game is really worth it for Mike Patton (voice of Darkness) alone, because he does really great job. The only bad thing about this game is cliffhander ending and it is criminally short, it can take from 5 to 7 hours tops. Shame, because it could've been so much more. Overall, great package and for this price there is no reason not to get it. Recommended.
This bundle consists of two very remarkable games from 2K: - BioShock Infinite is the long-awaited continuation of the BioShock series, this time by the original developers Irrational Games, who are responsible for the legendary games SystemShock 2 and BioShock. It is like the predecessors atmospheric, has an exciting, if somewhat confusing, story, and again critically deals with social problems, this time among other things with exaggerated religion, glorification of the military and above all also racism. The new city you can explore is called Columbia and unlike Rapture it flies high in the clouds. The levels have become somewhat more linear, but still offer numerous paths and motivate to explore. The fact that you are hovering in the sky has been integrated into the traditional Bioshock gameplay, you can travel and fight in very dynamic ways over hovering tracks. The AI ??companion is not disturbing and has been introduced well into the game, the new possibility to have aids spawned, invites to experiment, even if there are not as many forces as before. Still a very good game - The Darkness 2 is a First Person Shooter which is based on a comic book series with the similar name. In the story campaign you play as Jackie Estacado, an italian mob boss with supernatural power based on darkness. This game has a comic book feel and look to it in term of aesthetic. There are also a decent amount of weapons and abilities that you could use to mow your way through enemies. The combat feels really fun as you mix both gunplay and supernatural powers to slay your enemy, although your abilities would be disabled in the presence of light! Abilities can also be upgraded from a skill tree through points gained from killing enemies. there are also several collectables hidden in this game that you could find and they would provide some backstory to the game. In Vendetta mode, which is basically the co-op component of the game you could play between 4 different characters which has their own unique personality, weapon and abilities. They have their own unique dialogue in each different mission and would have banter with other characters if they are there. They also have their own skill tree which you can upgrade through points gained from killing enemies. Overall, this is a pretty decent game and still looks pretty good today
I played both of these a few years ago and they were both amazing titles in their own right. Bioshock Infinite is a Steampunk-like FPS has you take on the role of Booker DeWitt who is tasked with saving a mysterious girl called Elizabeth in a new world distant from the old Rapture, whereas the Darkness is a supernatural crime thriller in which you seek revenge as Jackie Estacado for his girlfriend's murder. Both of these games have memorable story, amazing graphics and are just a blast to play. Do yourself a favour and pick them both up!
