I thought about giving this an 8/10 but I feel that it's not fair to judge a game based on it's predecessors.
Bioshock: Infinite is significantly different from Bioshock 1 and 2, both in better and bad ways. Overall, the game is amazing and has an incredibly complex story, great voice work, graphics, locations, gameplay, and more. The main problem with my perception of the game is my experience with Bioshock 1. I expected this game to be dark, scary, immersive, and ominous like the first one, but instead I get a game that is, for lack of a better word, "brighter". In concept, a floating city sounds cool, but once you get over that fact it's still just a city with rooms and stores and streets. It can never compare to Rapture. Also, most of the powers you get are obscure and not very "bioshocky" (in my opinion).
HOWEVER, even with all of that said, Bioshock: Infinite is nothing short of amazing. Just not what I expected.
Bioshock Infinite; one of the most beautiful and amazing games I've ever played. With a intriguing storyline that makes you want to keep playing and truly infinite playability, I rated this game 10/10. The main story itself is enough to make you want to buy this game imediatly, let alone all of the DLCs. I highly recommend buying this game and all of the DLCs, as it is one of my favourite games of all time. It the most beautiful example of the Unreal Engine, and all-in-all, this is a game that you should have bought when it first came out. If you ever have any money laying around the house, you need to buy this game. I hope this review helps, but you shouldn't need this review to help you figure out that this is the best game of all time. I'm WiiRAwsome, we're done here.
Wow. That's pretty much the short way of saying how amazing this game is. To start off your Booker Dewitt and you are sent to a flying city in the sky known as Columbia and you must rescue and escort a girl back to New York to erase a debt. The combat of the game was very fluid and interesting with the addition of executions. Vigors were also a great additive to the game as they were also helpful when in tricky situations. It was pretty cool seeing the political satire in the game as well. You can tell that the developers put A LOT of effort into making this a great game. Albeit the ending was a bit confusing but once you look it up you'll understand it. I'd spoil it but I'm not that kind of person ;).
However it was a little depressing that there was no definitive multiplayer but it still doesn't change my rating for this game. Maybe the DLC will make up for it. Anyways I digress if you have a couple bucks pick this game up. If not DEFINITELY rent it.
