To Save or Autosave?
on June 27, 2017
Bioshock Infinite, the third in the Bioshock series albeit nothing to do with the original two Bioshock games-- with an exception for the ending.
I'll preface this review that the game has had many issues since I pre-ordered it on release day of March 26, 2013. The first time around playing the game, I made it through an hour of the game with absolutely NOTHING saved and didn't want to go back to go through all the work of getting Elizabeth again. I just picked up the game a couple of weeks ago, and it "Autosaved" once, when I got past the several timeline changes. I then made it all the way to Comstock house (towards the end of the game) saying it was "Autosaving" and "Loading" numerous times, and exited out of the game at a good point. Lo and behold another several hours down the drain as I'm taken back to the original point it saved before.
So there is no actual Save feature, so if you're looking for a pick up and play then this isn't the game. It has a very immersive steampunk feel to the game, and for a first-person shooter it's very nice, following the previous Bioshock games (mostly the first game). The game has a never heard of before concept of the NPC taking care of herself, and she actually helps you out with items!
Overall, a great game. I'm marking it down due to the very mediocre "Autosave" feature instead of enabling a player-use save. Also due to the glitchiness of the games at times, especially during fights.
