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 don't think it is as good as other people claim it to be, but it is still a very good game. The gameplay is great and killing the enemies is so much fun. The city is lovely and I enjoyed every minute inside it - this is perhaps the game's biggest advantage, the level design. However, I did not care about the plot that much. Yes, it was interesting, but the amount of praise this game got made me expect something phenomenal. This was just ok. If you are looking for a good shooter, with great environment, this is it. Just don't expect too much and you will enjoy yourself greatly.
In my opinion this is the best Bioshock game. For the first time in Bioshock series our character has name, can speak etc - that makes that we can feel better in Booker. We know what he thinks, what he want to do. It is great improvement, because previous Bioshock's characters were mute and we had to learn the story from other people or from audio logs - that was ok, but we didn't feel the emotional bond with our man. Storyline is really great, what an ending! In my opinion that was one of the best endings in video game industry. Graphic looks beautiful, city of Columbia is great designed - one of the best created city in game I've ever seen. Action is quick, fights give a lot of fun. Great shooter with excellent storyline.
Played this twice all the way to the end.. I love this one of the series .. you can just jump into this if never played any of the others.. BUT get the rest because all of them are good. I don't have any complaints .. GET IT! i mean its worth every penny and will keep you occupied for hours. I have to say its in my top 10 games
I kept trying to get into the game but I would always give up about a third of the way in because I would either get bored or just not have time to finish it. Finally, I finished it and I loved every second of it. This "vicious cycle..." ended finally! ;)
I didn't like a lot of things about Bioshock 2 so I wasn't sure what I was getting into with Bioshock Infinite. I have to say that this game is simply incredible. The combat is a huge improvement over the first two games but there is a very unfortunate downside to this and that is you can't carry every gun in the game at the same time. The story will keep you guessing as to what happens next. If you've played the first two Bioshock games then you'll want to get the DLCs as they wrap up the story but if you haven't played them then I wouldn't recommend playing the DLCs yet. I say this but do know that you don't need to know the story of Bioshock 1&2 to enjoy Infinite.
