Review 4 for BioShock Infinite
A Great Buy for Any Gamer
This game is perfect for: casual gamers
Bioshock Infinite is definitely one of the greatest games of 2013. Not only does the game offer a great storyline to begin with, but it also has great character development. I tend to pay a great deal of my attention to the small details in the video games I purchase, which makes Bioshock all the more better. For example, Elizabeth feels more as if she was an actual person because of the three women that influenced her character design (one for facial features, voice, and physical movement). Having played Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and now Bioshock Infinite, it's great that the producers created a new setting, in contrast to the typical, creepy undersea environment; the new setting is new and refreshing - Columbia in the air! I can't wait to get my hands on Burial at Sea on November 12, 2013!
I started playing the Bioshock series and fell in love with the eerie atmosphere and gripping story of Bioshock 1. Bioshock 2, while storyline wise felt lacking, was still just as fun as 1. Bioshock Infinite was announced at least a year or so ago, probably longer than that and I have been dying to play it ever since I saw the demo. Columbia looks beautiful, the combat system is updated, a steampunk city in the sky in 1912, hackable George Washington killer animatronics........how does this not sound amazing? I look forward to taking on the role of Booker and exploring this new city. I'll definitely miss Big Daddies, but I am totally ready for this new adventure.

Review 6 for BioShock Infinite
I was a bit skeptical about leaving rapture at first but once I read the Game Informer article and watched the gameplay trailer I knew it was gonna be awesome. The idea of a city in the clouds is really crazy and it sort of reminds me of something from ratchet and clank. I also hope they keep the same online multipIayer engine from Bioshock 2. I will however miss the dark dank corridors of rapture but I have high expectations for Infinite.

bioshock infinite ???
I loved the first one and even the second one. I bought b. infinite hoping it would be good, well it wasn't bad - wasn't as good as the first two but wasn't bad. The things I didn't like : you could only carry two weapons, the controller buttons can not be reconfigured to your likings, I personally really don't like using the r3 and l3 buttons for ANYTHING. The worst thing was that I couldn't finish the game - SPOILER ALLERT>>> at the end when you have to protect the ship using songbird as your helper was just insane and too frustrating. The whole game i didn't die once, and during that battle on the ship I kept failing the mission over and over again, just couldn't pass it. There was just too much going on. I tried different tactics and nothing, fail again. What I'm trying to say is that if I pick easy level to play my game and - well, I beat 90% of the game just enjoying it and not stressing out, and all of the sudden you're stuck, can't finish the game. I think the developer needs to look in dictionary and see what "easy" means.
i swear this game is going to shape the gaming world like the first one did. i liked 1 better than 2 for many reasons, but the developers were differnt. ken levine and crew came back for infinite and based on the gi issue and trailers so far, will not dissapoint. i am extremely hyped up for this game, and cant wait

Review 9 for BioShock Infinite
Great game and bonus exclusive to ps3.
Location: macomb mi
Everything everyone says about this game is correct it looks amazing and is going to possibly be the beat in the series. It also was announced at E3 tha when you buy it for ps3 you will get the first game included with it on the same disc. Which is great for anyone who's never played bioshock considering how infinite is supposed to be a prequel to the while thing. Then comes number 1. And obviously number 2. So you can own the while series for less than $30 a piece considering number 2 at Gamestop now is 9.99 brand new. Way to go 2k. Love the series. Great story and everything about them.

its not a prequel or a sequel
the creators flat out said that bioshock infinite had nothing to do with the other two games at all and it wont have anything to do with them. the game itself is entirely new and not connected to rapture in any way.
Review 10 for BioShock Infinite
We we we so excited!
Well, this game is of course going to be amazing. If you have played either Bioshock 1 or 2, you would agree. I have never heard ANYONE say they did not like Bioshock. The Bioshocks were so creative and fun that I would be extremely shocked if this one was horrible. If you haven't played 1 or 2 before, GO PLAY EM. :)

NO, NO, NO---DISAPPOINTED....
Bought this yesterday and I am taking it back today. I was so excited to get this game, been talking about it for the past 2 WEEKS, driving my co-workers crazy! Such a dissappointment. I am not an avid avid gamer, but I do keep my ear to the grindstone when it comes to games of note, so I pre-ordered this game about a month ago and picked it up yesterday. Got home, popped it in and was assulted by the huge racial overtone of this game. I mean there is a sequence where people were going to stone a black woman and what appeared to be a white man with baseballs! I was really disturbed and being of a mixed ethnic background, that took som much away from me wanting to play the game. I continued and grew more and more disturbed by the imagery that I decided it was a little over the top for me, so it is going back today. I was trying to take into account that all this stuff is taking place in 1912, but really??? Revering such people as John Wilkes Boothe and having psuedo Klu Klux Klan dudes running around? How do they NOT think that this is going to offend some people. I guess it is a small amount of folks since all the reviews are so glowing, but not for me. Sorry Bioshock, I am going to have to sit this one out. FAR CRY 3, here I come.
Review 11 for BioShock Infinite
A good new Change
Location: Miami, FL
Good to see Irrational Games is working on the next installment for Bioshock. It looks really good and different. Nice to get out of Rapture for once and take it sky high. Ive been a Fan of the BioShock Series and every fan should at least try this one out. To all the people who say "BioShock is about Rapture." No it's not, it's about it's, Memorable Characters, Setting, Concept, It's jaw-dropping story-line. Not Rapture. And i say this game look lovely.

Review 12 for BioShock Infinite
Would you kindly buy...the best game of 2013.
Location: Las Vegas, NV
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
Bioshock Infinite has a far different feel to it then the previous Bioshock games. It's bright, colorful, sunny, interesting and easily the best game of 2013 for it's single player story. Booker Dewitt and Elizabeth work together well and her AI is very well done, as is the story. The first thing you will want to do once you beat it is jump right back in and play again. The game is worth every penny. Also has a $20 season pass you can buy for even more content, characters, storys, weapons, and vigors. So if your looking for something new to try gamers of all types will love the incredible story and setting of Bioshock Infinite. 10/10. I would recommend that when you try it be sure to change your controller layout to MARKSMEN and increase your controller sensitivity to 7 (default controls and sensitivity are odd and feel sluggish). That will give you the best experience if your used to playing Call Of Duty/FPS games.
From looking at the footage so far, I can't even grasp just how great this game is going to be. The levels look absolutely amazing. Bioshock 2 was one of my all time favorites and this one looks to blow it away. This game will be so innovative and ahead of everything else, i see no reason not to pick it up.

Bioshock 3....lets get it!!!
Location: Detroit, MI
Came in a little late to the Bioshock series a little late in summer 2010. I did it the right way and still picked up the 1st one first. That was the first time I got a chilling experience from a game. Awesome game, beat it to the finish. Said to myself, "How can 2 get any better?". Picked up the 2nd one, felt really stupid. Very impressed with the storyline and gameplay. Everything was awesome. Silently waiting to take on the 3rd one when it hits stores the day before my birthday.

Review 15 for BioShock Infinite
not what you think.
Location: Miami, FL
This bioshock is not in rapture nor anyware near the sea, because this edition is in the clouds(sky) in a city named columbia. From what it looks like i think the events in this bioshock seem to imply that this city in the sky is before bioshock 1 and 2, not sure but there is a connection between both bioshocks that tie into this one. And "No", big daddys and little sisters ARE NOT in Bioshock infinite. And in this edition, ur role as the main character Booker DeWitt is to protect an girl named elizabeth. Both of you have powers. And Elizabeth has a gaurdian that the people of columbia call "The Beast" Which looks to be a giant michanical bigdaddy with wings. And also one thing to think about is that this bioshock might be in third person, not a FPS

Review 16 for BioShock Infinite
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
First of all I know there is no such thing as a perfect game but this comes close to it. The graphics are rediculous, the movement is smooth, I believe there's more control when using your gun than you had with BS 1 and BS2 (Not taking anything away from those two great games) but the weapon handling is subperb. Traveling along the skyline is different and a lot of fun. Sky hook kills is nice, the environments are stunning, and overall combat is smooth. Im an action game junky and I always immediatley want non-stop action. With this game on parts where there are none I find myself totally immersed in the story and enjoy every second of it. For the reviewers crying about changes made and things they got away from in BS 1 and 2, please keep in mind that this is Bioshock Infinite, meaning, this is an entirley different game. The changes show gaming technology, stroylines, and out of the box creativity evolving. If this game felt like another BS1 or BS2 I would be dissapointed because that would be evidence for a lack of creativity and growth. But anyways, this an all out awesome game and everyone needs to have this in their collection!
i watched the gameplay demo of this game and it looks magnificent. the setting of the game is good and im happy its not rapture again.it looks highly detailed almost like a movie from what ive seen, and the weapons actually look like they could be real. from just the gameplay video i know i am definetly going to buy this.
Game will be another amazing addition to Bioshock.
Location: Hamilton Ontario
The story takes place before Rapture was created so this is a totally new story with a few similar things. Any one who is complaining about this Bioshock just doesnt understand whats going on. The only problem with this game though is its not coming out untill 2012. :(

The looks different in a good way. However i dion't feel like it would have the same spooky effect. It looks so bright and happy. Without all of the spooky shadows and bloody writting on the wall, i don't think this game will be as fun to play.
Review 19 for BioShock Infinite
I haven't played any of the previous BioShock titles mainly because I wasn't intrigued enough. However, when I saw the gameplay video for this game, I couldn't believe that it was from the same series as the last two games. Not that the last two games were bad... they were in fact probably very good, but they just weren't my style. I'm very excited to delve into this new and exciting world and have already pre-ordered this game. If you are not a fan of BioShock, I still highly suggest giving this game a shot.
The developers announced that they'd be pushing the release date back to February 26, 2013...and they won't be presenting the game at E3 or at Gaescon....I guess we have to be more patient for what I'm sure will be a masterpiece!
