Very Good

I liked it, but I want more!

For some reason, game makers think the best way to get you to like a game is to make you work for all of the cool toys you can get in a game and end it just when you fall in love with it. Annoyingly, it does. Trying out all of the weapons, all of the vigors, finding all secrets, and trying to learn about all the hidden parts of the story will increase your gameplay tremendously with no cost to fun. The story is good, the shooting is good, the vigors make for experimental fun.

What I didn't like was the lack of fun movement areas, the game hooks you on the sky-line parts where you can zip around shooting and diving on the helpless below, unfortunately these appear in big battles mostly and you have to walk the rest of the time. Your companion can also make weapons, allies, and tactical advantages for you but you don't get to toy with these since they are predetermined by the landscape. You will wish for more of each since they add to the level of creative fun you can have.

In short; I loved playing it, but hated that it ended with me feeling like the only way I was going to get more fun was by playing it over and over.

I recommend you rent this game, but for a long time!

Game of 2013, Enough Said

This might sound odd for those who haven't played, but this game will leave you spinning until the end. Graphics are good, sound is beautiful, gameplay works as expected without any gimmicks, voice acting is gold-no platinum. Although, above all, the story is something to be remembered for years. Doubt me, I dare you. Then play the game and realize that your doubts were really stupid. Heck, on my play-through I found almost no bugs at all...and the ones I did find were so minor that they proved no hindrance at all.

Game of the Year, Period.

Ladies and Gentlemen. This is not just a "Game."

This is a noble prize worthy accomplishment. Lets forget about the game play, the guns, the vigors and powers, the graphics, etc.

Let's talk about a powerful message that this game brings to our generation. Bioshock Infinite Graces humanity with such an artistic masterpiece that only comes along once in a lifetime.

Everything from how the city of Columbia came to be, How defining each character is, how the game reflects on humanities shortcomings and prejudices.

Drop whatever game you are playing, and put some time aside for Bioshock Infinite. It will literally change how you see the world.
