BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter developed at Irrational Games, the studio behind the original BioShock. Set in 1912, BioShock Infinite introduces an entirely new narrative and gameplay experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky.
Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.
I enjoed it
Pros: Nice game. It's the first time I am playing a Bioshock game and was impressed with the experience. The story was not bad at all even though I didn't get a few parts, but I guess if I replay it then I might figure it out.
Cons: Now contrary to what some may conclude about the game's graphics being stunning, in my opinion the graphics aren't stunning nor amazing. I can see a console player feeling that way but a pc gamer who's accustom to very high or ultra graphics at 1600, 1080P or higher resolutions knows that there is no way the graphics are stunning. The graphics is good but not amazing or stunning. If you want stunning get on a gaming pc and go check out the Mass Effect series especially part 3, any of the Crysis games especially part 3, even older games such as the second Time Shift or even Darksiders had way better graphics.
Other Thoughts: I maxed this game out on ultra settings playing on a 27' LCD monitor @ 1920x1080, a i7-3770k cpu, memory 9-11-10-28 @ 2133 MHz and a 7900 graphics card and never got an hiccup. The game is clearly design to just look good enough while not stressing the gaming rig.

Pros: Lots of fun! The scenery is phenomenal. Great gameplay - very similar to the other Bioshock games. Very customizable graphics settings. Compatible with older cards. Challenging only at the more difficult settings - the recommended (medium) is easy for FPS veterans.
Cons: The following are FYIs, not really cons: 1. Same ol' run-of-the-mill Unreal Engine. 2. The package contains 3 DVDs - the 1st DVD takes a very long time to install - over 30min total time.
Other Thoughts: To the entitled reviewers who cant patiently wait a few days after the release date for a pre-ordered game to be shipped to you... next time use common sense and pre-order w/download.

Pros: for the game there are so many to list
Cons: the only con I have for this isn't even in the game, but in the fact that the shipping for this game is a joke. If you want to play this game set aside about a month for shipping, I may be imagining a bit but it really does take a long time. The only reason I got it from new eggs because they gave me $20 gift card after buying a new process.
