This review is from: Bioshock Infinite PC Game
Pros: -Decent lighting effects (overshadowed by very low textures)
-Solid sound effects and music.
-Excellent voice acting.
Cons: Where do I begin?
-Completely different game than advertised in the E3
Demos. Watered down visuals, physics, and animations. I like how Colonial Marines gets heat for this but not this game....
-Bland combat system. 2 Weapon inventory.
-Generic Weapons, even when fully upgraded. The weapons have no real distinctions. I beat the game using the same two weapons 95% of the time. What an atrocious illusion of weapon diversity.
-Game is completely on rails. No sense of exploration of this "amazing" City on the sky. You go to an area, shoot some enemies, loot, talk to Liz or have a cutscene, then rinse and repeat.
-You forget you are in a city in the sky, because it is not well integrated as Rapture was in Bioshock. There is no sense of immersion and atmosphere.
-The Vigors are nothing exciting or innovative.
-Game is too short (~8 hours)
-Key story details, critical to understanding the story, are made difficult to find.
-Extremely, extremely, convoluted plot. Complexity is not the same as quality. It is poorly written, and rushed towards the last 20 mins. Awful storytelling.
Other Thoughts: Game played on Ultra Settings at 1080p. Ran at a smooth 60FPS throughout. HD 7950.
This is an honest review.
I cannot fathom how this game got its 'universal praise' other than game review websites have been paid off.
You go to an area, shoot some enemies, loot, talk to Liz or have a cutscene, then rinse and repeat. How is this "revolutionary" and "the next evolution of gaming" as paid off reviewers have been claiming?
This game was not fun; it was not Bioshock. It was just awful, and Irrational Games should be sued for false advertising for the E3 demos.
If you liked the first to Bioshocks in any way, do not buy this game.
Pros: Large Screen. No Dead Pixels. Connections for vga/dvi and power are spaced nicely on the bottom of the monitor.
Cons: This is not a real Viewsonic monitor. It has ALOT of dithering with black colors, and it is way way way too bright when you first turn it on. Getting it to acceptable levels is an annoying and ongoing task. The base is very flimsy and wobbles even for a slight bump on your desk. It does NOT come with a DVI cable.
Other Thoughts: The fact that it does not come with a DVI cable is bad, but marketing this LCD as a Viewsonic 'sub-brand' is downright misleading. This monitor is nowhere near the quality you would expect (With the 900:1 ratios and all).
