Negatives: Some graphic bugs, but nothing jarring.
Summary: If you loved BioShock and you enjoy shooters that make you think, you will have a great time. Remember the first time you went to Rapture in BIoShock? This brings back those memories of awe...and suspense. A definite must play.

In the first 2 hours of playing BI, I spent ten minutes following around a hummingbird in one of the gardens. I was completely mesmerized by this little virtual bird because it was absolutely perfect. It was flitting from one plant to another, just being a hummingbird. This bird means nothing (yet, at least) to the plot or the gameplay, but Irrational put so much love into this little bird that it, simply put, came to life.
The point of that is this; if Irrational is willing to put that much into a meaningless hummingbird; enough to make me divert from the story to follow it around; then imagine what they've done with things that matter. Everything I've seen at this point (4 hours in) has been fully realized. This floating world is completely alive.
I liked the first two games in the series, but so far Infinite is the best game I've played in years.

Bioshock Infinite is somewhat overhyped and its greatness is mildly exaggerated. All that being said, it is a well crafted game that is almost perfect. The game's story drags in some places and the ending is unecessarily complicated for the sake of not repeating the general dislike of the first Bioshock's subpar ending. The weapons are great but its the floating air city Columbia that is the real star of this game. The amount of detail and design that went into this game is fantastic. Easily a contender for Best Shooter of 2013 but not flawless.
