So, this game honestly wasn't what i expected. There really arent any "scary" parts like in BS2 and the storyline is short, i was able to beat it in less than 10 hours on hard.
the graphics, textures and reflections are stunning and it looks great, except the constant flashing all the time gets annoying...inside all the lights flash and outside it does the same thing.
the guns are cool, but whats lame is you can only hold 2 weaps or powers at a time...
also i found multiple bugs where i either got stuck in a doorway and had to reload or items i cant pick up. these bugs will all be fixed in time so thats not a huge deal. i was more dissapointed in the poor storyline and how the entire game kinda feels the same.

Positives: Incredible atmosphere, great gameplay, riveting story, fantastic voicework, tight combat mechanics

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.

In the first 2 hours of playing BI, I spent ten minutes following around a hummingbird in one of the gardens. I was completely mesmerized by this little virtual bird because it was absolutely perfect. It was flitting from one plant to another, just being a hummingbird. This bird means nothing (yet, at least) to the plot or the gameplay, but Irrational put so much love into this little bird that it, simply put, came to life.

The point of that is this; if Irrational is willing to put that much into a meaningless hummingbird; enough to make me divert from the story to follow it around; then imagine what they've done with things that matter. Everything I've seen at this point (4 hours in) has been fully realized. This floating world is completely alive.

I liked the first two games in the series, but so far Infinite is the best game I've played in years.
