I'm nowhere near your average gamer. I'm a 46-year-old wife and mom. I played games with my kid when she was younger, but hadn't picked up a controller in years. Then a year and a half ago I met Nathan Drake, and renewed my love affair with adventure games.

I recently branched out, took a chance on BioShock 1. That was okay, the story was REALLY different, but the gameplay got a tad monotonous after a while. I happened to finish that a couple weeks before Infinite came out. I really had no intention of playing Infinite. None whatsoever. I barely paid attention to its existence.

Then I saw a commercial for it. Which led me to investigate online. Which led me to buy the game, on May 19. I finished it tonight, June 15. Yes, because I work full time, have a family to corral and a million things going on, it took me almost a month to play this game. But OOOOHHHHHH what a month it has been! I have savored EVERY MINUTE of this game. It's been so damn much fun that I actually feel BAD for getting it on sale. Holy guacamole, the art, the story, the characters, the *everything*.

This game is simply stunning. Even if you're just a sorta-kinda-casual game player like me, you will enjoy the living crap out of this. I am so completely going to play it again, as soon as I can pry it out of my daughter's hands.

After playing the 1 and 2 pack i had to play this one, i must say this game is good on my book. As the atmosphere and level design of the game is so gorgeous and memorable as 1 and 2. While 1 and 2 take place in a underwater city infinite takes place at a floating city. As with the story of this one i quiet liked it more than 2. Its well made to keep on continuing the game hoping it wont end too soon. The shooting mechanics slightly improved as well as having multiple kinds of weapons. Vox side of the guns suck so just stick to the regular ones. Theres a nice weapon upgrade system that is in a vending machine instead leaving you to upgrade the guns you use. 1 and 2 had this but in certain sections of the game and was bery limited. The powers in this game are fine but i still stick with fire and ekectricity the most, some of them either take too much power or arent as useful. Theres more open space on some of parts of the levels unlike 1 and 2 that are tighter. One of the best things done is that Elizabeth can help you by bringing certain things from the portal she opens, a lot of times this has saved me from dying. Overall the game feels new but also a bit of the same with the othe 2 games. Id say the story was well done the most that made me continue with the game

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon September 17, 2014
This was one of the first games I bought for my PS3 when I bought it a few years ago after playing the previous game in the Bioshock series and wow, simply amazing! I see the games's been reviewed in detail here already by hundreds of others and it's been out a while so I can't say anything enlightening or that hasn't been mentioned already. Suffice to say that it has a very unusual story line, not just a typical shooter game. The beauty of discovering a great game a year or two after it's release is that you get to enjoy hours of fantastic game play, graphics and story line at a fraction of the release price. I have no connection to the developers, but I couldn't recommend this more highly!

I'm a huge Assassin Creed fan but I never bought this game in the past thinking it might not be what I was looking for. 6 hours into the game and I'm hooked. This is my first Bioshock game in the series so I have no reference to base my opinions on regarding the series. For this game alone, I'm amazed at the simplicity of the environment yet the level of detail. They have ensured that this virtual world gives the feel of another world, and you're part of it, yet it removed all of those unnecessary concerns some games stick players with like managing a massive inventory, trying to complete 50 missions/quests all at the same time, and constantly having the need to get your bearings and check a map. Easy to immerse yourself in this FPS. I held off trying this game for some time now, but since I was able to buy it new with 'Prime' and have it delivered, for the same price others charge for a used version, I figured I'd give it a shot. Part of the concept to the game is figuring stuff out. You are partially in the dark when it comes to things like where weapons come from and what are these coins for, but that's intentional. After all, you are thrust into a new world sent on a mission you really don't quite understand.

If you enjoy First Person Shooters, or virtual reality games with a complete environment, then this game is no-brainer.

VINE VOICEon October 22, 2013
Well I finally got around to playing Bioshock Infinite. Like God of War Ascension it was a release date purchase for me, but I just never got around to it until recently. So I'll try to keep this late review as brief as possible.

If you like shooters or action games...Bioshock Infinite is for you. For chronology's sake I'd highly recommend that you play the first two games before you play this one. But chronology is completely unnecessary for Bioshock Infinite. Here's the good news: You get the original Bioshock free on the same disk (with the PS3 version)! So at least play that if you haven't already.

I loved BioShock; I became immediately immersed in it and spent well over 20 hours completing it during my first playthrough because there was so much to explore in the game. Bioshock Infinite is no different. While the game progresses in a linear fashion, it's a huge open world that is yours to explore and backtrack on with a few optional objectives or just to gather supplies.

The scenery is immense and every town has more detail than the eye can capture. The structures within the towns are perfect and the rooms within the structures are as realistic and...well...just so detailed. I can't even fathom the amount of time and effort that went into putting this game together.

The visuals alone in this game make it worth the price of purchase. And seeing everything in the game can be rewarding. Exploration is usually fruitful, because hidden throughout the expansive game are all kinds of weapons, perks and information about where you've suddenly found yourself captive. And this time it's not under the sea.

The game begins very similarly to Bioshock. You're out on the open sea approaching a structure that seems to pop out of nowhere. But this time instead of entering a doorway to a city beneath the sea, you're propelled into the stratosphere to a city in the clouds called Columbia. And there you find roadblocks o'plenty to prevent you from easily reaching your goals. While there is certainly some familiarity with the game mechanics, the Bioshock Infinite creators have givens fans a remarkably unique Bioshock-esque experience. The main difference between Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite is that while the original was dark and very creepy at times, this third in the series is mostly bright and more action oriented.

So is there anything bad about Bioshock Infinite? Not much. If I to find a flaw it might be that it's all auto-save; you can't just quit and restart the game wherever you left off. You need to make sure that you see it auto-saving, and if you're an explorer like me you could be in an area for a long time without realizing that you haven't auto-saved in some time. So be aware of that.

There's no question here...add this to your cart. This is a 5-star game...whether you've played the first already or not. At the time of this review, Bioshock Infinite is under 30 bucks on Amazon, and that's a great price considering you get Bioshock 1 with it as a bonus. "Welcome to the Circus of Value!"

Before I get all grumpy I will say this...The game was very pretty to look at, I liked Elizabeth tossing me things and picking locks. Now for me to complain...I really loved Bioshock 1 and 2. I liked the creepy steampunkish atmosphere, the music, the sound effects, I LOVED getting to be a Big Daddy smacking the crap out of splicers with my giant drill or freezing them in the first one and shattering them with my wrench. I liked how the stories intertwined, I liked having a map, and extra health kits, and eve...I liked the fact that I was a force to be wreckened with and that I did not have to have perfect aim because I totally stink at that. None of this was in Infinite. The story was okay even though horribly depressing at the end and I think I would maybe have enjoyed it more if it was a game that was 'from the makers of Bioshock'. Most of all, I missed the creepily delightful Little Sisters that somehow I thought perhaps that Elizabeth had something to do with them..from her dark hair and slender build. I really really wanted to like this game but in the end, I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it because it just wasn't what I was hoping for :(

As a sequel to the original "Bioshock" (2008), "Infinite" is a game whose pleasures lie in taking in the surroundings of the world that has been so meticulously crafted, enjoying the roller-coaster of thrills from one section to the next, watching the relationship develop between Booker and Elizabeth, and experiencing the mind-bending ending that makes you consider all the previous events of the game in a new light. There are elements dealing with racism, religion, uprising and rebellion, but it isn't about these things. They just help to define the world of Columbia, the floating city in the sky, as a specific time and place. What it is about is two people's journey to discover the truth of what's really happening, and where they fit into it. If there's a downside to the game, it's that the combat never feels as interesting as the original "Bioshock," lacking memorable characters like the Big Daddies, the Splicers, or the Little Sisters that brought about a moral choice. The A.I. of Elizabeth can also be a tad distracting when exploring the environments. Even so, "Bioshock Infinite" creates one of the truly original places in gaming, right along side the underwater city of Rapture in the first game, with a story that's so intricate and fascinating that you'll want to immediately play it again just to try and put all the pieces together.

I loved BioShock first game with Big Daddys. The music was awesome from the 1920s and 1930s. The BioShock Infinite game is well thought out and really good. The graphics are HD and looks great. Cool thing about this game is I can also play the first BioShock so it's two games in one for a very very low price. Also this game has a great story line and for the first time in my years of playing games I didn't mine having a tag on long. Elizabeth is a great partner and she is vital to having success in this game. I know this game has been out for awhile but if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a new game and you've never played this game. I strongly recommend BioShock Infinite.

I have no idea what that "bioshock" title re iew was all about! This person is totally wrpng about the language and sexual references! There is flirting but nothing a kid would understand. Only adults and maybe late yeens might get it. I did no hear any harsh swearing in this game. In fact the brute in bioshock 2 threw the f bomb around so that review is totally WRONG. There is gore for the melee attack but it actally light for what people would consider to be gore nowadays. Now I have to say some of you might be disappointed in the beginning as I was and might want to stop playing because it is a bit slow in the start and it is a bit depressing that the old bioshock storyline is gone. But DO NOT stop playing!!!! It gets really good once u get past a few areas and the storyline starts to unravel!!!! YOU WILL fall in love with this game and the storyline will blow your mind! !!!!!! and the action of the gqme at times are incredible! I foubd myself holding my breath in some parts! I have to say the makers totally outdone themselves and I hope for more to come!!!!

I didn't liked Bioshock 1 and 2 just because I don't like spooky things coming out of no-where and scare the hell out of me.
I don't say those games are bad, I'm just saying they aren't my type of games.

Bioshock Infinite is almost (or completely) different from the too past versions. It's in the sky with more colors and less scary things in the way. The best part is that you are with a lovely lady that we all know her name, Elizabeth and she will help you in almost everything in the game.

The part that I don't like about it is that *spoiler alert* when you pass like half of the game, it turns out a bit of boring and a bit of repetitive. Killing people, getting salts to kill them in a different way.. yadayadayada.. Sometimes I had to stop playing, not because I had something better else to do, but because I was BORED when I was playing it.

Still, it has secret doors and unlockables but, like I said, the only real good about this game, and one of the reasons I wanted to finished is because of the great story. You will LOVE, I mean really LOVE the end.

In conclusion:
Gameplay 7/10
Visuals 9.5/10
Story 10/10
