Never in my life I have been so captivated and enthralled by the storyline of a game quite like this. Let me start off by saying that this is what Bioshock was meant to be. The storyline is amazing, keeping you interested the whole way through. The entire game, you'll be sitting there thinking to yourself, "Where is the plot twist??". And trust me, when it happens, you'll know. Irrational Games did a great job in this game specifically of letting you in on the characters' backstory, and their emotions. They made Booker and Elizabeth so life-like it's unreal, and I give them props for that.
Now onto the setting. Wow. That is the only word I can use to describe it. The amount of effort that Irrational Games put into the setting of this game is tremendous. From the heaven-like paradise that they've created, to the wonderful lighting effects, to even the little trinkets they didn't need to incorporate, but did anyway. The way that they transition from this paradise to a destroyed paradise, was executed beautifully.
Now for the gameplay. This is where I bumped off one point, because they added in some great features, but removed some of the features that made the gameplay more efficient. I'll start with the good: The Skyhook. I can guarantee you will love that thing from the moment you get it. By allowing you to get around the map faster, it really helps you appreciate the beautiful scenery, as well as making combat more fun in general. The guns are also nice, but some I found to be ripped off variants of the better guns, that really have no point. What I also don't like is how you can only carry 2 guns at a time now, so you're going to find yourself finding the 2 best guns, and holding onto them for pretty much the duration of the game.
Now these "bad aspects" of the game i'm referring to are not nearly big enough reason to not buy this game. I could go on about the great key aspects of Bioshock infinite but my fingers are getting tired. But overall, this is one of the greatest games that I have ever played, and would recommend anyone to buy this game, for it is well-worth the $60 price tag
yes: I recommend this product
