Bioshock Infinite was many things. Creative. Intriguing. Just plain fun. This game remembers what it means to immerse the player in an exciting and believable world. Not only was the environment and gameplay satisfying, but the story and characters were some of the most creative I've ever seen, and these are the things that will stop you from putting the controller down. This game wraps the player in an emotion roller coaster and carries you through one of the best stories ever.
At times, the context of the story of objectives was unclear, but it soon came together as more was revealed. Moments like these could be confusing, but also left the player on the edge of their seat. I felt as though combat was downgraded from the second game, but still helped flow with new additions like the sky lines.
In the end, Bioshock Infinite was also one of the most memorable games of the decade, and carries all the way through to a satisfying and conclusive ending (something that many recent games have lacked). The story, environment, combat, and characters all blend together to make a fantastic game.
Ken Levine has made one of the best games I've ever played without a doubt. Bioshock & Bioshock 2 were great games but this game has just blown me away and boosted the critic reviews to an all time high.
Irrational is one the most respected studios now because of this title.
If anyone is thinking about getting this game or renting it etc. I HIGHLY recommend getting Bioshock 1 and playing it through completely, trying to pay attention to it's story.
All I can say to top it off is that the ending will put the icing on the cake.
i'm never one to believe the hype around big, highly-lauded titles but in this case i have to concede.
bioshock infinite is quite simply, heaven on a disc. you won't have a more original experience gaming the rest of this console generation. (i may edit this if GTA V proves me wrong).
you owe it to yourself and irrational games to purchase this game (support good art and all that)
but if you can't buy it for whatever reason, don't deprive yourself and at least rent it.
if you don't like it, please reassess your life.
