Bioshock Infinite Review: In the Clouds Yet Grounded

There’s not much to say about director Ken Levine’s latest
masterpiece that hasn’t already been said. Bioshock Infinite is a brilliantly
arranged story of Booker and his mission to bring Elizabeth back from the city
of Columbus. Infinite isn’t just a story about people. Columbus is a character on its own as a city in
the clouds with an equally interesting story to tell.

Bioshock Infinite is a triumph in storytelling

Although we did find the
game absolutely stunning in aesthetic and story content, the gameplay was
little more than another shooter with Vigors. Vigors are Infinite’s abilities
ranging from releasing a murder of crows to setting enemies ablaze; many of which can be combined to create more devastating attacks. The mechanic does
work very well, but we found ourselves bored and just anxiously awaiting more
from Booker and Elizabeth.

We missed the certain level of scare that the
original brought us. There was a tension that was lacking in Infinite’s
approach compared to the original which was quite disappointing. There’s not
much that can be considered tense during the daytime setting of Columbus but
regardless, Bioshock Infinite is a triumph in storytelling that should not be
passed up.
