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 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.
Bioshock Infinite is one of the best of its genre I've ever played. Awesome story, nice twists. Packed with action and thrills. With Awesome graphics its better. Graphics- 10/10 Gameplay- 9/10 Story- 8.5/10
No game will ever affect me as much as BioShock Infinite did. After playing through the game three times it still upsets me that Irrational signed over the series permanently. I'm going to keep this clean of any spoilers and say that this was a brilliant end to the revolution of the trilogy, and that Burial at Sea episodes One & Two are to be considered absolutely mandatory if you are to play this game properly. This game has been one of only a few games, that has brought me to tears on more than one occasion. Call me a cry baby or whatever, but I am as passionate about this series as any fanatic is about whatever they are obsessed with. BioShock will always have a special place in my life post of completing Infinite. I would recommend not only this game, but BioShock, BioShock 2 also. If you are thinking about buying this, do it, have fun, and pay attention.
When Ken Levine speaks, the video game industry listens. The prestigious creative has wanted to focus on this occasion in history, and the result achieved has been astounding. Without neglecting the playable perspective, the new Bioshock stands as one of the great shooters of recent years. Infinite achieves, with these struts, to be one of those rare launches that every season manage to be essential.
