Bioshock Infinite is a nice change of pace when talking about FPS games. When I say that this game is the best FPS I've ever played, its the truth. There are a lot of good things about this game, but there are some bad things as well. Now I will admit that the pros HEAVILY outweigh the cons. And they should because the developers delayed this game for the longest time. But it was well worth it. If you play Bioshock Infinite, you are playing the future game of the year, and easily game of the decade. This game is a gem.
1. THE STORY! Now I know people all the time say how amazing a story is in a game, well this one tops the rest. The story is so emotional, you get so sucked into it you just cannot put your controller down. Amazing story, well done.
2. The vigors. Now I am a fan of Bucking Bronco and Devils Kiss (try it out guys, you will like it!) the most, all of the vigors are awesome. I wouldn't have even thought about the ideas for some of them, like murder of crows, very original. And they all are great.
3. The action. Now, when playing an FPS game, you expect great action and fighting and combat. Well this game has out done all the rest.
4. CHARACTERS!!!! Booker is a great hero, even if he doesn't think so. But, more importantly, Elizabeth is OUTSTANDING. You will be falling in love with her throughout the game. Best female character in a game, period.
Length: I hate to say that the game was pretty short. It has taken me hardly 3 hours to beat it. And that includes all the walking around and exploring. If i didn't do that, i would have finished it in 2 hours.
Story: I know, I said that the story is great, and it is. It just gets so confusing at one point (don't worry, no spoilers!) It actually kinda reminded me of Inception.
Overall Grade: A- this game is not perfect. It does have its flaws, like every game. But this game is still absolutely outstanding. I promise you will never have as much fun playing an FPS as you will this one.
The amount of work and the collaboration of ideas that went it this game is innumerable! This game surpassed all of my expectations and beyond! The story is rich and detailed and the more exploring you decide to do the more expansive it feels! There are a ton of collectables and upgrades spread out through Colombia. The graphics (on console) are not quite on par with pc, which is to be expected, but the textures are still quite detailed and do not take away much from the overall experience. The gameplay has not changed much since the previous Bioshock games. You can now sprint, but what really changes the gameplay is the ability to ride around the world and perform brutal attacks with the new skyhook. Elizabeth also mixes up the gameplay by allowing you to open tears, which allows you to summon allies, supplies, and cover from other dimensions to aid you in battle. The story campaign is about 15 hours long, there is a ton of replay value if you did not collect everything in your first run. Do not skip out on this game the story alone will blow your mind!
Negatives: Some graphic bugs, but nothing jarring.
Summary: If you loved BioShock and you enjoy shooters that make you think, you will have a great time. Remember the first time you went to Rapture in BIoShock? This brings back those memories of awe...and suspense. A definite must play.
