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.

As you know, BioShock series is one of those collections that have been stacked in the video games history and have been so influential that they will continue to be known as one of the best storytelling acts until many years after their release. The director of the game, Ken Levin, has created a game that, while highlighting the gameplay standards, defines a stubborn story less often seen in the first-person shooter games. The world and environments that he created is unique in all respects, and that is exactly why, after almost a decade, it is still being talked about. But the masterpiece of this series is just Bioshock Infinite. This game has a huge difference with the two previous versions, but it is still a genuine BioShock, Bioshock Infinite constantly asks for a variety of topics in its story. I think BioShock Infinite is looking for the development of the original ideas and roots of the series, including BioShock 1, rather than looking for innovation and creating new elements. Great and fantastic storytelling + great soundtrack and fantastic art graphics all show the beauty of this title. The ending of the game is so unique that you have not seen it before!
La serie BioShock es incre?ble y este juego hace honor al nombre. Todo es fant?stico y el horror y la oscuridad que hab?a en los otros juegos est?n equilibrados en el brillo y la belleza (en mi opini?n de que no es una mala cosa). La historia es incre?ble y no hacer de la siguiente manera recta el bioshock dem?s, pero tiene un poco de similitud. Ese juego era mi favorita de la serie y lo recomiendo para todo el mundo Un juego fant?stico!
The story of this game is great. The characters are interesting (except the main character), the gameplay is fun (but doesn't really fit the story, more on that later) and Columbia might just be the most beautiful city in a video game ever. So the gameplay. It's basically you running around and shooting guys and using super powers (vigors). While the story is great, it feels a bit more distanced when you're jumping around and travelling with skyrails, ripping a guy apart, making another guy's head explode and then setting someone else on fire. Booker DeWitt is supposed to be a poor man with big debts, who has also lost his daughter. Not a complete badass who kills a million people. While Elizabeth seems a bit shocked at first about me killing her father's men, she quickly recovers and helps me. That's the only big problem I have with it, the other thing is that there's is one enemy called "Handyman" which is so incredibly annoying to play agains. I may have misunderstood it's mechanics, but it just jumps around and is so hard to dodge. Except that the game is incredible, and really worth playing through. While my review may have consisted of like 50 % negative stuff, the game is great.
I managed to run this game on an Intel HD Graphics 4K with no problems with FPS or stutter or whatever, this game is really optimized, and playing it probably won't be a problem for you. Just like other BioShocks, the game is basicly magic + guns + retro art. You get to upgrade your guns, buy ammo, and these things. You can use your powers which include, for example, telekinesis. (as in the previous bioshocks, it allows you to move objects with your mind). You need vigor's from certain machines in order to do those things, which include, for example, possesion (Exactly what the name implies). And to upgrade/get more vigors, you need to use the money you get from fighting. This game is really good, and it goes on sale all the time for $7.50 or so, so if you want to buy it, rest assured your money is well spent, as it takes over 20h of gameplay to finish it up at the easiest difficulty. Not bad, but some people still prefer the old bioshocks, so for this matter, buy the sea DLC, it reassembles bioshock 1 and 2.
This game is, at it's core, a spiritual successor to Bioshock 2. Both series are Single Player First Person Shooters, but this game is starring Booker Washington as the game's protagonist. The game is a fun romp through Columbia, a floating city, a stark contrast to Rapture. The gunplay is a blast (no pun intended), featuring upgrades for every weapon, making every playstyle in the FPS genre a valid way to play the game. You can upgrade the Sniper Rifle fully and pick people off from a distance, or you can be a steampunk gunslinger and rock out with a deadly Broomhandle pistol. The game also has its own version of Plasmids, being Vigors. You can specialize in these instead of guns, or you can be an awesome spellslinger. All in all, the gameplay is complemented by the story. I really wish that this game was open world, but alas, it's a linear playthrough. The game being linear complements the story well, however. All in all, my only complaint is that the story gets in the way of the otherwise seamless combat. Mainly, this is your companion, Elizabeth's, fault. She constantly breaks the flow of combat to throw you loot, be it money or a medkit, and her power of accessing different universes breaks the flow of combat by having you stop and hold a button on the desired lootable wormhole. Other than that, the game is fun, and the story is good. For this, I give it a 9.0/10
