This week for Video Game Tuesday I thought I’d cover one of my favorite FPS games, Bioshock Infinite!
Plot Synopsis: Set in 1912, the game has protagonist, former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, sent to the floating air city of Columbia to find a young woman, Elizabeth, who has been held captive there for most of her life.
Plot: It’s an amazing piece of work and I absolutely loved it from the first minutes of gameplay to the very end of the game. I can’t say anymore without spoiling anything.
Characters: The characters in Bioshock Infinite are amazing, Booker is a bad ass and Elizabeth might be my favorite person to escort in a game ever.
Gameplay: I generally don’t like FPS games, but this game was incredibly well done and I loved every moment of it, Special mention goes to the AI that Elizabeth uses because every game with AI partners should steal, I mean copy, the system that makes Elizabeth the best AI partner I’ve ever played with.
Music: Normally I don’t think of music in FPS games as being epic and heart pounding, but like everything else Bioshock does it surpasses every expectation and than some. I especially liked the quartet in the opening 20 minutes of the game who sings a Beach Boy’s song (It makes sense later on in the game).
Art: Amazing and I particularly loved how Elizabeth’s attire changes over the course of the game.
Overall: A must play game, the story in it is absolutely amazing and should be thoroughly enjoyed.
For those who like: Amazing story, Amazing AI (especially in your AI partner Elizabeth), Awesome art, shooters with a plot (something that CoD really hasn’t ever done well)
Not for those who like: Any of the above, or lack of Multiplayer this game is strictly a single player game, also gore this game has lots of it.
