Did You Know?

Trivia

The original conflict was going to be between the "tech geeks" and the "luddites". Ken Levine decided this conflict wasn't controversial enough, so he changed it and added the political angle. See more »

Goofs

Elizabeth uses the term "Flak Cannon" to point out soldiers with volley guns. The German word "Flak" did not enter the English vocabulary until the late 1930s. See more »

Quotes

Zachary Hale Comstock: And then the archangel showed a vision... a city lighter than air. I asked her "Why do you show this to me, archangel?" "I am not a strong man, I am not a righteous man, I am not a holy man." and she told me the most remarkable thing. "You're right, prophet, but if grace is within the grasp of one such as you, how can anyone else not see it within themselves?"

Now this is how games should be
26 August 2014 | by opadeliriumSee all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of first person shooters, but the first BioShock caught my attention last year with it's unique story and atmosphere, so I decided to buy Infinite last week to give that one also a try (BioShock 2 is yet to be conquered). I did expect a great game like the original BioShock, but I never expected to run into a masterpiece of modern gaming in it's own genre.

BioShock Infinite delivers superbly from every possible angle: the entertainment value, the world, the atmosphere, the characters/character development, the pacing, the dialogue, and most of all, the story. Every aspect of this game is perfectly unique and masterful, and Infinite accomplishes something that not many games can accomplish; it is very emotional, mature and deep, but also extremely fun to play.

If I compared BioShock Infinite to something in other forms of art, it would probably be the joining of David Lynch's Mullholland Drive and Stephen Kings The Dark Tower. But of course with thoroughly unique style that makes BioShock Infintite a game like no other. Can't but love that satirical, bleak, sadistic, mentally disturbed world that this game (and the whole game series for that matter) represents.

Not many games deserve a 10/10, because there usually is always something that doesn't fit, but BioShock Infinite is as perfect as it gets. Future classic, or maybe a classic already.
