Buy it, Rent it, or F*** it: BioShock Infinite

#1horror_spookyPosted 3/30/2013 9:34:08 AM
+Addictive BioShock looting and shooting gameplay intact
+All the Vigors are cool and useful
+Extensive arsenal and each weapon feels vastly different from one another
+Skylines are just epic
+Even deeper RPG elements, such as Gear that can be equipped
+Combat is intense and leaves a lot of room for improvisation
+Each area is wide open and fun to explore
+Side quests are worth doing and interesting
+Columbia is going to become an iconic setting we'll be talking about 10 years from now
+Elizabeth is probably the most helpful AI companion in history
+Game is well acted, with audio logs providing especially impressive voice acting work
+Songbird is ****ing terrifying
+Downright creepy atmosphere
+NPCs are interesting and expertly animated
+Enemy AI is smart and challenging
+Every character is interesting
+Fantastic plot that tops the original BioShock with expert writing and an Earth-shattering conclusion that will stay with you for a long time
+Period music as well as original tunes are all great
+Sound effects round out the audio presentation, resulting in the best all-around audio I've experienced in any game ever
+A ton of polish
+Choices made in game seem unimportant, but they aren't
+Ability to choose to start from a specific chapter helps replayability tremendously
+A few very well done jump scares
+Melee in the game is brutal and satisfying
-Controls can take a while to get used to, especially for FPS frequenters
-Bad textures up close
-Skip-able after credits scene
-I maintain that true New Game+ would do wonders for this series
-A few specific action sequences are more frustrating than fun or challenging

Verdict:

Buy it

Several of those points are just the same thing, but worded in different ways.

Also, Infinite doesn't have deeper RPG elements. The gear you equip is not all that different than the perks you equip in Bioshock 2.

Yes, multiple people have messaged me asking me to do this game. This and Gears of War: Judgment. <_< Which I will now be playing for the rest of the weekend. xD

Elaborate.

Also, I was comparing it to the first BioShock. I am ignoring BioShock 2. Not that it was a bad game, but BioShock Infinite definitely feels like more of a "successor" to the first game, especially considering Ken Levine is back in the director's chair for this one.

But it isn't an MMS.

Contrary to popular FPS PoV, this isn't a bland heartless game. This is the game Dishonored wished it was.

Provoking other users to respond inappropriately = Troll
Even the most positive remark can provoke inappropriate responses. Thus, we ALL troll.
