Ive been a gamer for over 20 years and this game is the closest thing to perfection that I have experienced. Gameplay, story, art direction and level design are all excellent with the all-star being the story. Ken Levine has become an overnight gaming legend and has pushed the medium to new heights, Anyone that thinks video games are a second-rate form of art, look no further than Bioshock Infinite. If you are a gamer you MUST play this game.
This is without a doubt one of the best games I have played in recent memory. I can't remember the last time I counted down the minutes until I could go home and play a video game. The combat is fast paced and simple while still allowing for a wide variety of ways to approach most fights. The storyline is compelling and interesting. The thing that really makes this game though is the incredible attention to detail. Every time I play through this game I notice minute details that I am still impressed by. The body language of characters, especially Elizabeth, peoples reactions, conversations, graffiti, posters, and countless other minor details that takes you from a video game into a story that you experience from a first person point of view. I can't really say much more without spoilers, but make sure you don't skip the ending credits. There's a bit more afterwords.
Its a good game, the environment is pretty darn detailed and its fun to explore. It's like being in Disney World on acid, I still prefer the first Bioshock over this one but Inifinite is 100% worth playing, probably twice.
