I don't want to sound like another fan boy saying this is the best game ever. But I want to genuinely tell you that this is a game that you have to experience. The world, the characters, the gameplay, the visuals, the story, everything comes together beautifully to create a videogame masterpiece.
I had been anticipating this game for a while because I saw something special in it, something that set it apart from all of the Call of Duty's and Halo's. This game has a true personality.
The visuals are breathtaking, the first time the city of Columbia is revealed to you is unforgettable. Bioshock has had a reputation of making the environment part of the characters and story in the game, and it's no different here. It's vibrant, it's bright, it's alive, and it portrays a rendition of a perfect American society that never existed.
The characters are extremely fascinating. Booker is a hard-nosed Pinkerton agent sent to rescue Elizabeth from Columbia. Elizabeth is one of the most captivating and awe-inspiring characters in a videogame I've ever seen. You feel for both of these characters as they try to survive and escape while everything is working against them.
The combat is superb. The guns are awesome, the vigors are sweet, the sky-line is a ton of fun, and Elizabeth is a huge help during combat. She'll throw you ammo and health and she can open up tears in universes through her special powers.
The story is very well done and very immersive. You just want to lay back and take in the atmosphere around you. Infinite has probably one of the best endings I've ever played in a game as it stuck in my mind after a couple of days. It may be confusing but if you really pay attention, you will understand.
Some gripes I had about the game are that it's a little too short and there were some things left out that were shown in the awesome trailers.
Infinite is an engaging and captivating experience. It's so unique because it can only be expressed in a videogame. It is a must
I expected much more from the bioshock franchise. This game stepped up to bat and completely missed all 3 swings. No balls, not even an out of field hit, just complete missed. The story was nice but after an hour or two of gameplay you realize that it's pretty repetitive. Someone tells you to do this or get that so you shoot some people and then you're out. Always the same. It has some nice touches but nothing close to my high expectations. In the end it is a 6/10. This has been EverythingGamerPro with MACH staff, over and out.

I don't see it. This story is just alot less engaging than the first bioshock game, even though they tried way harder.
There is a ton of work put into this game,and everything is neatly wrapped and topped with a bow. Everything is shiny and beautiful, but its all just candy coating for the same mediocre shooter we've been playing for years. Paired with a similar "Saviour and/ or Villain?" plot, and I was done about an hour in.
The first bioshock still stands far and above its sequels.
