Bioshock Infinite is amazing. No! Don’t Go! That’s not the full re-. Ok then, at least someones still reading, that wasn’t the full review by the way, I just wanted to get that out of the way so I didn’t have to keep saying it. Despite it seeming the polar opposite to the other Bioshock games since it takes place in the sky city of Columbia rather than the sea dystopia of Rapture, it still retains the brilliance. Plasmids have been retained in the form of Vigors. You can still shoot people up with a wide selection of guns, and you can still have your mind blown at the brilliance of the story and gameplay. The story is reminiscent of the first Bioshock in the fact of, it blows your mind more and more as more details are revealed to you about the characters. The ending has confused some, but if you sit down and collect your thoughts you can piece it together, or you can watch a video recapping the events before doing so if it makes it easier. The story can be interpreted in different ways so don’t take someone on the internet’s interpretation of it to be the right one, try and find your own way of thinking of it. On to the gameplay. The combat is excellent in both the main game and the DLC, but we’ll talk about the DLC in another review. Anyway, like I mentioned before, you retain the idea of plasmids without the actual name. There are many new ones for you to mess around with and the classic Bioshock ones stay put such as electro bolt and insect swarm, with slight alterations of course in name and use. You still have a wide array of guns to choose from as well such as a shotgun and a machine gun. Also, duel wielding is kind of still a thing, you can have two things selected at one time, you just can’t use things at the same time, if that makes sense? You’ll know what I mean in-game. All in all, I enjoyed Bioshock Infinite immensely, and I hope you do too.
My Rating – 10/10
