Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3 | Edition: Standard

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
Use a variety of weapons and ‘vigor’ powers to defeat your enemies (Click here for a larger image)

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 techno¬logical 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 com¬bat by pulling weapons, turrets, and other resources out of thin air.
  • Vigorous Powers – Throw explosive fireballs, shoot lightning, and release murders of crows as dev-astatingly 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.

If you loved bioshock 1&2 you'll love this, it feels very bioshocky though in a completely different bright experience compared to the dark world of rapture.

Buy it you'll love it :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Would have made for a great movie 13 May 2013
By A Mac
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I was initially very impressed by the game and the amazing attention to detail, but it just didn't live up to its hype. The plot and characters of Booker and Elizabeth were great but the game mechanics and choices offered by the game felt very linear and truly limited. This game could have been so much more but instead you feel almost trapped and forced into a single way of playing the game. Exploration of the city does not feel like it is encouraged, except for the collection of a few coins to buy almost useless upgrades for weapons. This combined with the limited interaction you have with the inhabitants of the game makes you feel as though you are just ploughing through a few levels of COD instead of getting in touch with the story and becoming involved in the world. Much of the time you feel as though you should have been offered the choice to have influence over certain things but are left with static environments and object. The city becomes merely a pretty backdrop for a half-arsed shoot em up and shatters the illusion of a story and involvement in it by you as a character.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an old-school first person shooter first, and story-driven game second. By "old-school", I mean the likes of 1993's "Doom". You will spend most of the game running and shooting goons which follow very simplistic tactics (mostly they will run straight at you, shooting). You can only respond with the same simplistic tactics, which quickly becomes tedious. And, no, you cannot avoid combat. The game will not let you move on until you have cleaned your plate, so to speak, even if the goons have not yet spotted you (which means that you have to draw their attention and then kill every last of them).

The problem is that the game is built on top of this simplistic first person shooter. Yes, there is a promising story underlying the game, too, but in order to control the pace of the storytelling, the game keeps throwing combat at you.

I am surprised how well-reviewed this title is. Yes, it is one of the most beautifully-rendered and art-directed games in years, and the interaction between your player character and the game's central A.I.-controlled character Elizabeth is both innovative and effective. But there is a striking imbalance in the game design itself. The shooting game mechanics are both too simple and too uninteresting to be given the weight they have been accorded. The game world itself, the story, and how the story is told, are much more sophisticated than the game's combat. They are worlds apart.

I daresay you can find much better first person shooter games today, but probably no game with a story as well-written as in "Bioshock infinite".

It's sad to see how the resulting game turned out to be so much less than the sum of its parts.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing? Or a Shackled God? 1 May 2013
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A very tricky one to review, this.

Let me say right from the off that this IS a good game, and I do recommend it. It certainly makes you want to keep on playing. If you've never played a Bioshock game before, go out and give this is a try. It'll be different and well-worth playing.

However, if you're already familiar with Bioshock, this is where it gets a bit tricky...

(A quick disclaimer though: I haven't finished this game yet. I'm about two thirds through, so this is subject to an update. Also the following isn't a rant; it's just trying to illustrate a point...)

Bioshock Infinite is the gloriously sculpted, shiny chassis of a Ferrari Enzo bolted onto the misfiring engine of a mid-90s Fiat that's stuck in second gear. It is not anywhere near as good as it thinks it is - or at least, wanted to be.

OK, it has a beautiful new setting in Columbia. Yes, it has a not-annoying AI partner in Elizabeth and yes, it has a couple of nice new touches in the Skyrail system and the `tears' idea. As I say, it IS a good game. But if you look underneath the bonnet...

The Unreal Engine in BI is very dated. It cannot handle the scope of the game and you can see visually and mechanically that the Skyrail system is nowhere near as complex and intertwining as it was intended to be (they are essentially glorified staircases). The character designs (and textures) are not sufficient enough to convey the emotional axis that is supposed to be the beating heart of the story. It's functional, but not brilliant. For any normal game this would be fine, but for BI (or what Ken Levine envisioned it as), it is not up to scratch.

The gameplay structure is very dated. It worked in Bioshock 1 because of the awe-inducing environments.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Bioshock Infinite is one of the most over rated games I have played mostly by people who have not experinced the rest of the games from the system shock and bioshock sereis.

Bioshock 1 was set up in a way where you couldn't play the same way twice, infact it says so on the back of the box on pc. It had alot of depth with the way you selected plasmids, if you wanted to stealth and had alot of morality choices and presented itself in a way which was almost an action RPG like its predecessor "System Shock". In Bioshock Infinite all choice is taken away, the exploration is very brief and unsatisfying. I always found it enjoyable to explore rapture creeping around feeling vunerable and trying to collect as many things to help me survive. And really if you've never played a Bioshock before you should play the 1st one, honestly I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone it is a brain dead shooter which you can pretty much walk through start to finish. Yes its cinematic, yes the graphics are beautiful but the gameplay is so bland.

There are a serious lack of plasmids, not only that but there is nothing to suggest why they are there or what there purpose was in this society its just super powers for the sake of it, you can only now carry 2 weapons at a time this does not add any depth it actually only restricts the amount of fun you have in fights. There is no hacking, there is no stealth, there is no resource management as your AI partner Elizabeth will pretty much throw ammo or cash at you whenever you need it. The game has actually boiled down all the resources from the first games to just lock picks and money.
