The first word that comes to mind is ....WOW! After two episodes in Rapture going to Columbia was a shock in itself. The beginning of the game was different and new, and as the game progressed I noticed a wonderfully reinvented game using quantum physics in its story line. I wont say any more so as to wreck it for anyone else.

Over the years, many companies like EA, and the COD franchises, have had nothing that is jaw dropping for the last 2 years. I'm glad Irrational delayed it until 2013, because they really wanted to make a game that would be discussed for the years to come
surprised at all the rave reviews... don't get me wrong, it's a really good game. i guess my main beef is with the graphics; though the art design is fantastic, textures are flat, there are only two or three templates for npc's (almost all the women have the exact same faces and hairstyles), everything looks kind of muddy. had been playing Farcry 3 just before starting this, so maybe i set my standards a little high. gameplay is good, and though i dislike the blue "X" button popping on screen constantly playing without it would be tough. though it has the look and feel of Dishonered your character is a LOT less mobile. and i HATE invisible walls. generally, though, i replayed the second Bioshock game in anticipation of this coming out and couldn't tear myself away- not a problem with this one. anyway, haven't finished it yet, maybe when i do i'll change my mind. definitely play it, just don't believe the hype
