The game wasn't really what I expected. It was too short. The only thing about it that was amusing where the graphics and the scenery, other then that it was a fail, but that's my opinion. :/

Very Good

Average Gameplay but Mindblowing Ending

I played through it cold on Hard and found it a little challenging, especially the boss battles and few Handymen fights. I really dislike the vigors (ie, Plasmids/Tonics) of the game so it meant using the guns most of the time, of which you can only carry two at a time. However, I did enjoy the whole tears aspect of the game, which did enhance the gameplay a bit.

Atmosphere-wise, Columbia isn't on par with Rapture, but that's just because Rapture had a much darker tone than Columbia did. Columbia is still very grand and beautiful to look at. It just didn't immerse me like Rapture did.

I felt ho-hum playing as Booker, who just felt like some skilled soldier to me. Elizabeth was a very good character though and I grew to care about her and her relationship with Booker.

The only reason this game gets an 8 though is the ending, which was mindbending to say the least. It took a few recaps online to full grasp it and I can honestly say it's one of, if not, my favorite game endings. Looking back on the game while knowing the ending makes the game better alone.

PROS
+Ending
+Elizabeth
+Tears

CONS
-Some gameplay elements
-Lack of 'crazy' events (until ending)
