BioShock Infinite is a first person shooter like you’ve never seen. Just ask the judges from E3 2011, where the Irrational Games’ title won over 75 editorial awards, including the Game Critics Awards Best of Show. 

Set in 1912, players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission. His target? Elizabeth, imprisoned since childhood. During their daring escape, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond -- one which lets Booker augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment. Together, they fight from high-speed Sky-Lines, in the streets and houses of Columbia, on giant Zeppelins and in the clouds, all while learning to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities.

  • newegg Discover Columbia The city of Columbia was built by the US Government in the late 1800s to serve as a floating world’s fair. The city was sent to travel from continent to continent and show the rest of the world the success of the American experiment. Unknown to most, Columbia was also a “death star,” secretly packed with weaponry. Political strife caused Columbia to secede from America and the city disappeared. No one knows how to get to Columbia.
  • newegg Explore the Sky-Lines The Sky-Lines were initially built as a means for shipping and moving cargo in Columbia, but the city’s youth quickly found a way to use them as a death-defying means of movement. As the struggle between factions in Columbia intensified, they become not only a method of transportation but also a facilitator of combat. In the second BioShock Infinite gameplay demo, you saw Booker maneuver through a system of interweaving Sky-Lines to outwit and outmaneuver his foes.

Features
BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter currently in development 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.

Former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt has been sent to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned in Columbia since childhood. Booker develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so the pair may escape from a city that is literally falling from the sky. DeWitt must learn to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harness the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat play

Pros: The game was a great addition to the original Bioshock. Infinite has a great story line that kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to just keep going to that next check point. There are points in the game that really make you think about theory and philosophy. Overall a beautiful creation that will toss you through twists, turns, and emotional bends. Definite recommendation for anyone who loved Bioshock 1 or those who love a creative storyline. Without ruining the game, I would fair to say that it has great replay value.

Cons: I've seen complaints about the combat style, nothing really worth complaining about. It's a pretty standard FPS style, with a few adaptive NPC's you'll have to learn.

Infinite claimed a new "shoot / don't shoot scenarios" where there are times where not shooting would benefit you. These are very few and far between and don't truly "benifit" you that much. Nothing big though.

Other Thoughts: I see a few people talked about Bioshock 1 being great and Bioshock 2 being a fail -- Please keep in mind the originators of Bioshock 1 did not creat Bioshock 2. Completely different company.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth The Wait

Pros: The Bioshock franchise -- the original and the sequel -- were stories of great and awful, sort of like the first two Halloween films and the third film, which was awful. The first Bioshock was incredible and a game-changer. It was not only riddled with eery, spine-chilling play, it had rewarding action, crisp, engaging graphics, and the environment/world which the game constructed was memorable well after we players completed the game itself. The sequel, unfortunately, fell completely flat and was a genuine waste of time, storage space and the aluminum/plastic on which the game's contents were burned/delivered.

This new title is not so much a rebirth/rehash of the original -- but it is not only reminiscent of the original, it introduces many similar themes except now, rather than being planted in an undersea playpen of macabre twists and chills, this setting is a fabled city ensconced in the clouds. This sky City was created by a Prophet who endorsed seceding from the US. No spoilers here: it's safe to say that this City is sort-of-kind-of similar to the original Bioshock construct, and at times equally uncomfortable.

The combat and the myriad options available to the player are different: no more plasmids, now "salts" -- and no Big Daddies here. But the fact is this game is as engaging, interesting and well-crafted as the original. It's frankly an impressive, ingenious melding of the original game and Dishonored -- sort of a steampunk Bioshock with fresh graphics, new settings and a whole new addictive game that grabs you just as the original did.

Really, genuinely amazing, well-done, and worth getting without a doubt.

Cons: None, really. My only real issue was the "video margins" -- it's not entirely clear how the lines bounding the vertical and horizontal axes should appear or should be adjusted, but the truth is you tinker a bit and then continue through the game. Not even worthy of complaint, frankly, but in the interest of fairness...

Other Thoughts: Worth the wait -- for those who haven't managed to fire up the original game, do yourselves a favor and get the original first. And do yourselves yet another favor once you've completed the first game and skip the sequel and go right into Infinite. And be glad you weren't forced to endure a silly sequel and so much time in between the original and this third amazing installment in this series.
