BioShock Infinite Premium Edition
My 2 cents
Hardcore fan, novice fan or newcomer; you have to look at this financially. Deciding which edition to get was 1 of the hardest decisions I had to make. I really wanted the Ultimate Songbird Edition because of the statue but I just couldn't get my head around the fact that its an extra $70s!! Resin cast or PVC plastic....that is a lot of $ for me to throw away. After a while, I decided that Premium Edition was the best choice for me. Not bad for $80s. A good deal being $20s more then the standard edition.
The Most Bang For Your Buck
With this edition you will get the most bang for you buck. This edition has all of the same advantages of the Songbird Edition but doesn't come with the Songbird Statue. That is the only difference between the two editions that I can see. I can not justify paying $70 more for just a statue.The statue dose look cool but for me its not worth the extra $70. I could use that money to buy another game.

There were so many things to love about the first Bioshock. The philosophical exposition and commentary, the fantastic playstyle that mixes elemental attacks and upgradeable weapons, and the immersive setting and story all came together to make a truly unique and engrossing experience. While the setting has changed taking us from the depths of Rapture to the heights of Columbia, and the philosophy being examined has changed from Ayn Rand's objectivism to American Exceptionalism, the gameplay looks to be just as, and possibly more, exciting. A wonderful story involving a young woman who is a keystone in Columbia is sure to take many twists and turns along the way. I was a huge fan of Rapture, but more so due to my love of Art Deco which was used lavishly throughout the city's architecture than anything else. Columbia, being a city built around the turn of the century will obviously not have the same style to it, but looks gorgeous none the less. I am sure that Ken Levine and I do not see eye to eye philosophically on a great many things, but he did such a great job of examining the pitfalls of objectivism that I'm interested to see his take on American Exceptionalism. Incidently, I thought the team that did Bioshock 2 struck a great chord by making the main antagonist a Utopian, which was a great juxtoposition to Ryan's strict objectivism. Upgrading weapons and powers along the way is sure to please any FPS fan that is willing to stretch a bit beyond Call of Duty, Halo, and Battlefield.
Does It Look Good
Yes this game looks amazing and the trailers make you feel like your in the the game and make you want it ti be march 26th. And this edition should give you your Bioshock needs. Its also $80 for an art book, lots of dlc, a keychain and a lithograph of devils kiss vigor. Thats a lot, If there is any kind of Multiplayer or co op My xbox gamer tag isFreQuenTSt4bz and Ps3 Thrasher_5.
Well, I am happy
Looks very promising. I don't usually get upgraded editions of games, but I think I'll make an exception with this one.
From underwater to the skies!
I'll have to admit, I'm going to miss the underwater city of Rapture, but I guess you have to mix it up sometime. There was something spectacular and eerie about being miles under the sea, feeling somewhat alone in a dark underwater creation with passing views of the outside sea floor. I wasn't sure how I'd take to the trade off of dark underwater to the "bright blue skies" of Columbia, but it looks promising. The added feature of having a passive companion at your side whom with seemingly grows into a romance(maybe?) is interesting, and the traditional "Big Daddy" type of guardian - Songbird was pleasing as it left some familiarity to the franchise. I think Infinite is definitely worth the chance, and as mentioned by others - out of all the "pre-order" and "special edition" offers, this one seems a little more rewarding.
A great way to spend your birthday money
One of the greatest games I've ever played! Has amazing graphics and sound. Probably one of the the greatest story line ever. Has a nice plot twist at the end and well Elizabeth is pretty freaking hot.
Angry and I want my money back!!!
Do not purchase this horrible game. The premium edition is not even that good. The handyman statuette is the only good thing in this bundle. The keychain is useless and the art/propaganda thing is average. The game itself is decent but I experienced a good amount of glitches to the point where I had to restart the game and lose my progress. The sound it just slow odd music so nothing special there. The protagonist, Booker DeWitt, is just another forgettable character. To those people out there who might want to buy this game, do not buy it at all. Even the premium edition is just garbage. I should have bought something worthwhile......
THIS GAME IS AWSOMEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
