I've never beaten either Bioshock 1 or 2, but when I saw the trailer to Infinite I was definitely intrigued. A friend of mine let me borrow the game, and man, was I wowed. The gameplay, the storyline, the different dimensions/decisions that you could be a part of took my breath away. While I wouldn't say that this game is the best of 2013, it is definitely in the top 5 with probably the greatest twist that I have seen in a video game for a long time. Highly recommend!!

I absolutely loved this game, as a somewhat picky gamer it is hard to find games that I love so wholeheartedly as this one, my only complaint is that I beat the game in less than 24 hours although I don't have kids or any of the usual time constraints that most others do. I would not recommend letting younger children play this game.

Bioshock was one of those games that define the current generation of video games with the first installment in 2007. Great Storytelling, Characters and even the world of Rapture made it a great game. Add an alright sequel and now a third game what does it all mean. Well for starters, Bioshock Infinite is probably one of the best games of 2013 besides The Last of Us, GTA V and the other games such as Assassins Creed and the like. All versions of Bioshock Infinite is very good but for the PS3 it includes an install file of Bioshock 1 (It is 12GB install so it will be big in time, which is a bummer) to catch up with the series (To bad it doesn't include the second game but oh well) and also Move Support for the third game; otherwise it is identical to Xbox 360 and PC and Mac versions of BS Infinite.
Story is basically this. The game takes place in 1912 where a drunken gambling and depressed man with no other options left named Booker DeWitt ascends to an air-based city called Columbia to kidnap a girl named Elizabeth to settle gambling debts. After an unwelcoming party, Booker gets to Elizabeth and both become entangled into a web of discoveries and vengeance to a man who is possibly responsible named Comstock. (Play the game, it is a great story)
Gameplay is standard first person shooter but instead of plasmids you get Vigors for the powers in BS Infinite. Even though most is tired of this gameplay it is not that bad but could be better. Also no multiplayer which is great since BS Series is not that great for MP anyway in my opinion unless if it is done right. Move controller is a fine addition but not much in advancement to other shooters with Move support.
Graphics is at 720p on HDTVs and is very realistic but not as realistic as GTA V or Last of Us but is great. It appears to be running slightly better on PS3 than 360 at some points but is about the same. Sound is always great so no complaints there.
Overall Bioshock Infinite is a 10/10 for any version.
