BioShock Infinite is a first person shooter game released for Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 26th, 2013, with an OS X release on August 29th, 2013. The game was developed by Irrational Games and 2K Australia, and published by 2K Games. The story follows Pinkerton Booker DeWitt as he travels to the city in the sky Columbia to rescue Elizabeth in order to “erase the debt.” Of course, should you journey to Columbia and “erase the debt” or should you leave the debt unpaid?
Graphics-The graphics are without a shadow of a doubt gorgeous. The characters looks phenomenal, the enemies look awesome; the change from peaceful city to war torn city is flawless. It makes you want to be there.
Sound-The music is appropriate for 1912 time, and the combat music isn’t overused so that each time you hear combat music, it’s fresh.
Gameplay-While the gameplay isn’t different from other shooters, the idea of skyline combat is fun. After all, knocking your opponents off a skyline NEVER gets old. Like the previous two BioShock titles, Infinite also has power-ups (in this game; vigors, which require salt). What’s new in Infinite that wasn’t present in the previous two games is gear; clothing that has different affects. While the game isn’t totally RPGish, you do level up weapons and vigors by buying them from two different vendors (the third sells supplies).
Columbia-Of all the cities in the history of gaming, Columbia is perhaps the most bizarre. There are some unsolved mysteries, like how do the people of Columbia not suffocate from being up so high? How do the citizens get water? You get the idea.
Overall-BioShock Infinite is a classic. If you haven’t played BioShock Infinite, you’re in for a treat when you do. Gorgeous visuals plus fun game play make the game worth every penny.
