This review is from: BioShock Infinite - Xbox 360 (Video Game)I am a fan of the previous Bioshock games so it's not hard to believe that this is a great game. But it's honestly mind blowing. The graphics are amazing and the story is gripping. Booker Dewitt, a former Pinkerton agent, is sent on a mission to retrieve Elizabeth, a girl with mysterious powers, from the magical floating city of Columbia. Dewitt is a bit shady and only takes the deal initially to settle a debt but as he gets to know Elizabeth, they develop a bond. The story is set in 1912 and the characters and settings are perfectly suited to the time frame. The story also depicts the struggle of part of Columbia's citizens for equal rights and treatment. It could honestly play out well as an alternative history novel outside of the game and be worth reading. You travel from place to place via floating ships or gondolas or take a zip line ride on the sky rail system which is fun all by itself. I'm not into all the technical game jargon but I can tell you that this is one of if not the best FPS game that I've ever played. It earns the M rating due to language and violence so not for the younger crowd but if you like a story along with the shooting in your games, you should definitely try Bioshock Infinite.
