I've personally been a die-hard fan of the Bioshock series . I personally love the in-depth, deep,vast, unique storyline and narrative that comes right along with the first 2 games. This 1 in itself is vastly and deeply diffrent from the other 2 Bioshock games in the series. This game explores and makes the possibilities nearly endless of what, where, who ,how, when and why of all you can do. Hence, "Infinite" in the title stands true in my opinion.
The graphics, surroundings, atmosphere, Columbia is absolutely beautiful! The people who developed & created this game really I do applaud much deserved credit!
The gameplay will feel similar to that of Bioshock 1 and 2. From the Vigors, which you injest, rather than use EVE injections. You eat fruit, bread, canned beans, for health. What I think is really helpful is the Shield you can upgrade. It helps you like say the "Power to The People!" machines you'd find in the other Bioshock games. I think the Shield reminds me of and the diffrent stops along the way in the vending machines.
Within the game itself, which does so much and has so much even more to do time & time again. I did honestly find myself wanting more. For instance, there are times where it seems as enemies just pop out of nowhere with no objective. Meaning, in my opinion,that you are almost aimlessly fighting off hordes of enemies and using up yourVigors, Salts & Shield. Don't get me wrong, it is very fun!! It seems to me like they could of really and truly explained more about each character like the Handyman. The Handyman, to me, reminds meof a Big Daddy/Rosie with it's helmet removed with a splash of Frankenstein. I say this, because he will just attack you repeatedly and does not have strategy. That's where you come in to make your own decisions. Along with Brothers of Silence = which summon ghost-like versions of George Washinton inhorde-like waves.
Elizabeth as your trusty A.I. character in your journey is very helpful! Enough said. 9

"Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt." Probably one of the most well known quotes in this masterpiece of a game known as Bioshock Infinite. The year is 1912, approximately 50 years before the events of the first Bioshock. Instead of a city underwater you are in a city in the sky called Columbia. You play Booker Dewitt, a former Pinkerton agent who is serious debt after gambling and drinking. The loan sharks have agreed to wipe away his debt in return for bringing them a girl from the city of Columbia, which brings up the famous quote. The woman's name is Elizabeth and she has an interesting power. The abililty to open tears that take you to different realities and take out of them what ever she wants. The main goal is to escape Columbia from the prophet known as Father Comstock safely and wipe away the debt.
The gameplay is very similar to the first Bioshock except instead of adam and eve you use vigors and salts. You also have different powers compared to the first ones. My favorite is possession. You can also only carry two guns at a time. You use vendors to upgrade now so save up on money. The AI has gotten smarter and A LOT tougher since the first two Bioshocks. The best part of the gameplay is Elizabeth. She can give you health, ammo, salts, and even money whenever you need them. She can also use her powers to help you out such summon turrets, create defenses, and even summon weapons and health packs. She is amazing! Also if you're up for a challenge, they've added 1999 mode which is the hardest difficulty in the game. In fact an achievement in the game is to beat 1999 mode without buying anything from a dollar bill vendor, which gives health, ammo, and salts.
This game is amazing. I can't get enough of it. The only problem I have with this game is that it's too short. I wish they could've made it longer. Also the story is amazing. I was blown away by the ending. I couldn't sleep that night. Game of the Year right here. Just incredible.
