Product Description

Platform: PS3

Product Description

Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker De-Witt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

BioShock Infinite takes place in the floating city in the sky called Columbia

Gameplay

BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter with role-playing elements. As Booker, the player moves about the various structures of Columbia using a grappling hook, a series of railways connecting the buildings called the Skyline, and other transport means to search for Elizabeth. The player will gain weapons which can be used in numerous ways within the environment, including on the Skyline, to defeat enemies. Booker gains powers and abilities by using ‘vigors’ and wearing gear that are found through Columbia. Vigors grant activated powers such as telekinesis, electricity manipulation, or animal control, while selected gear are passive abilities that can improve the player's strength or damage resistance. With gear, the player has four available slots, and has to make decisions on which combination of offensive and defensive capabilities work for them. The key to success is to use vigor and weapons strategically – the player will be rewarded for considering all elements of the combat scenario and utilising the tools at Booker’s disposal in the best way possible!

BioShock Infinite allows players to use supernatural powers as well as weapons

Key Features

  • The City in the Sky – Leave the depths of Rapture to soar among the clouds of Columbia. A technological marvel, the flying city is a beautiful and vibrant world that holds a very dark secret.
  • Unlikely Mission – Set in 1912, hired gun Booker DeWitt must rescue a mysterious girl from the sky-city of Columbia or never leave it alive.
  • Whip, Zip, and Kill – Turn the city’s Sky-Lines into weaponized roller coasters as you zip through the flying city and dish out fatal hands-on punishment.
  • Tear Through Time – Open Tears in time and space to shape the battlefield and turn the tide in combat by pulling weapons, turrets, and other resources out of thin air.
  • Vigorous Powers – Throw explosive fireballs, shoot lightning, and release murders of crows as devastatingly powerful Vigors surge through your body to be unleashed against all that oppose you.
  • Custom Combat Experience – With deadly weapons in one hand, powerful Vigors in the other, and the ability to open Tears in time and space, fight your own way through the floating city of Columbia to rescue Elizabeth and reach freedom.
  • 1999 Mode – Upon finishing BioShock Infinite, the player can unlock a game mode called “1999 Mode” that gives experienced players a taste of the kind of design and balance that hardcore gamers enjoyed back in the 20th century.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Length: 1:40 Mins
I love video games and the previous two Bioshock games are ones I regard very highly, they may even be my favourites. I had been looking forward to the release of Bioshock Infinite like you would not believe, enjoying every update from the developers, groaning at every delay on the release date. As something of a fan I enjoy collecting things to do with my favourite games and displaying them in my home so I decided to order the premium edition. There was also an "Ultimate Songbird" edition retailing at over 100 which included all the things in this package, plus a statue of the Songbird, which features in the game. Whilst this is very nice it was well above my budget, so premium was what I decided to go for.

This is primarily a review of the contents of the box and I put together a wee video slideshow so you can see them for yourself, not the greatest quality of photos but you can see them bigger in the customer image gallery as well if you wish. I will tell you what I think of the game so far at the end of the review, although not in any depth as I have not finished it yet!

Ok so you get a cardboard box the same size as a regular game box but thicker, and everything is in the box. The game is as you expect the usual PS3 game in a case. You can reverse the game cover if you want to, I have not bothered because I don't actually spend enough time looking at the box of a game to care what is on the cover although I know some fans were disappointed with the official cover design so it is nice that they included the option to reverse it if you wish.

The next biggest thing in the box is the art book. It is hard backed and looks suitably distressed (a bit mouldy even but thankfully it does not have the smell to match!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic 26 April 2013
Platform for Display:PS3|Verified Purchase
Epic Game and the premium edition makes the Bioshock Infinite experiance that much more enjoyable. Would recommend this edition to any one. The only thing I was not happy about was they did not send me my code for industrial revolution but I can live with that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Game, Weak Extras 17 April 2013
By M/R
Platform for Display:PS3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Bioshock Infinity premium edition is pretty but, game aside, some of the content is rather underwhelmimg.

The game is fairly good, but I still prefer the first Bioshock to either of its sequels. The game takes quite a while to actually get going, but as soon as you set foot on the island and start wandering around the lighthouse, things start to feel familiar. The visuals are bright, colourful and stylistically appealing and a welcome departure from the typically bland, monochromatic palette of most games on the market. On the downside, there is a lot of repetition such as the population of Columbia consisting of a huge number clones. Sounds are reminiscent of the previous games too, and the voice acting is strong. There's nothing cutting edge about any of these aspects, but the environment still impresses and they work together to create a very inviting veneer and if you've played the previous iterations, you'll find the gameplay quite familiar. Personally I didn't find the range of vigors (as opposed to plasmids) especially compelling and I found myself trying to horde salts and relying on the bland range of firearm standards, which given the rest of the gaming environment, are surprisingly lacking in creativity. Your companion, Elizabeth, is blessedly not a hindrance, so at least something was learned from the frustrating and tedious babysitting missions of Bioshock 2.

The special content includes a tiny (barely bigger than the tip of my thumb) blue resin Handyman figure. It comes in a nicely decorated cardboard box and the detail is fairly good but as an extra it's not exactly "must have" material. If you are interested in the board game that's supposed to be coming then it may be of greater interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm difficult one 3 Feb 2014
By A B
Platform for Display:PS3|Verified Purchase
Undoubtably a great game that I think delivers a lot more than others do. Let's put this into perspective, infinite had massive boots to fill the original in my opinion is one of the greatest games of this generation.

I was following this game throughout its development cycle and what I was seeing was positive especially in the e3 game play demo department, it almost looked too goo to be true. And this is where it started unraveling, the reality is, it was, they almost showed you too much and built expectation to a unobtainable high level. Hype almost ruined this and 2k the game developer almost ruined it.

I may be sounding too critical of this game, it's a good game that does emerse you in its ideologies and environment but it's trying to walk a tight-rope between bringing new money/ people to the franchise but still appease the hardcore fans that loved the original for what it was.

If I was a new player coming to this then I would be delighted, but I'm not. The game is undoubtably bioshock but in my opinion parts of it have changed or been left out, Columbia is good but it ain't no rapture, the balance just doesn't seem right somewhere.

On a positive note the main protagonists booker dewitt and Elizabeth are fantastic characters, there voice acting and indeed everyone's is really good, so too is the music which is top draw.

All in all it's a special game that mostly delivers but I can't help thinking that this was a missed opportunity. Something in development stopped this game from being fantastic, money, development time, hardware. I don't know, but what I do know is it could have been really special.
