Excellent

One of my new favorites

This was the first bioshock game I played, and it blew me away. The visuals were colorful and a breath of fresh air with its cell shaded style. The story was rich and captivating as well. The gameplay mechanics are great as well. The weapons however, are a different aspect. There are plenty of weapons, but a lot of them are pretty interchangeable. Personally, I used the revolver and shotgun throughout the entire game. The powers are fun, but it's the same issue with the guns. They pretty much have the same effect. However this game is deffinintly worth playing!

Like I said in the title, Bioshock Infinite is the best game I've played in years. Its the best game out of the three bioshocks and it has a great story line. Plus the DLC is amazing.

A solid game, and worthy sequel

I'm a huge fan of the Bioshock series. So when I started playing this one I had extremely high hopes. And let's be honest, the game doesn't live up to the hype it generate. But to be fair, games rarely live up to their hype. It doesn't meet the claim of revolutionizing the series. In fact, it does play rather identically to the previous games in a way.

This isn't a bad thing though. The controls are usually spot on. Even on 'normal', or as they call it here 'medium' difficulty the game is a challenge. The game's rather fun to play too. The new mechanics add some interesting new stratagies as well to help keep things fresh.

In previous games the story didn't quite live up to the rest of the game, but didn't detract either. This time around the story is much more compelling. It kept me guessing the entire time. And even once I thought I finally had everything figured out, it throws one last curve ball.

Really, the only complaint I really have with the game is that ambushing from the sky rails is rather clunky.
