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.

Bioshock Infinite's setting is truly unique among the slew of single player games available on the market. The visuals truly elevate this game above some of the competition. The story is also very engaging and although divisive, it should engage players enough to reach the end. Gameplay wise, Bioshock Infinite provides a decent experience throughout; The shooting is responsive and feels great and the vigors present throughout the campaign are visually interesting. However, it can get quite repetitive at times and this is further worsened when the difficulty is raised. In conclusion, Bioshock Infinite should be on the single player enthusiast radar but its gameplay should not be its most attractive aspect.
Back at the helm of the franchise, Bioshock creator Ken Levine delivers another masterpiece. Contrasting with the first game - which is kind of one of the themes of this sequel - Bioshock Infinite takes us away from Rapture and up into the skies. But what awaits you above the clouds is not what you might expect. Taking a much more bright and colorful approach to world design, Columbia looks at first like a rather breathtaking and inviting place. But reality quickly creeps up on you. Veering away from the silent protagonist trope, Bioshock Infinite lets you play as the charismatic Booker DeWitt and introduces Elizabeth as your companion on this journey. The game explores their relationship and - would it even be a Ken Levine Bioshock game without it? - ends on a mind bending twist ending. The atmosphere is, similarly to the first game, very heavy and slightly disturbing. However, while the first game had a very dark setting with occasional happy 60's tunes (which made it even creepier), this one has a very bright and seemingly happy setting with constant happy 30's tunes, but an underlying darkness that slowly seeps into the story. This being the first Bioshock game I played, it remains my overall favorite. I cannot recommend it enough
I usually don't play straight up action games because their stories are lacking (such as Far Cry 3), but this one blew me away. There are characters you genuinely care about and unravelling the past and the story was riveting. The gameplay was mostly standard fare but I am rating this purely on how (en)raptured I was by the story.
BioShock Infinite caused me a bit of fear, because it changed the environment a lot, the first ones to happen in Rupture, which is a city on the sea floor, and that would happen in the clouds, Columbia, but it's not that BioShock Infinite is incredible , after the very good, but that could have been better BioShock 2, it is good to know that they have managed to do something similar to the first BioShock, I still prefer the first BioShock, but Infinite owes nothing to it, with beautiful graphics, an ambience which seems to be happy and happy, but that in the course of the game you see that it is not quite this, just like the previous ones, the game has its tense moments, the characters are very good, Booker turned my favorite protagonist of the trilogy, and the Elizabeth is also an excellent character, and I also like her dialogue, the gameplay is excellent, and the final is to blow the head, without doubt the final but bizarre of the trilogy, one of the best Plot Twist of the games without doubts, BioShock InfiNite closes the trilogy with a golden key, I still dream of a BioShock 4, but I think this will never happen, but with the problems of the company.
If I had to describe Bioshock Infinite in one word, I would simply say "masterpiece." Because you have to admit that the third instalment of the popular and old Bioshock series is a kind of majestic. Firstly, the location of the action, never used in any game before. It's not another clone to defend the Earth against aliens, fight against the Germans or other invaders. It's amazing first person perspective shooter put in a great setting and fresh system.
