Good review. To me it did have a sort of generic shooter vibe going for it, which is sad. I was really sad that the skylines didn't play a larger part in the story as they were quite a lot of fun to play around on.

As for the ending there may be something that you didn't notice. I know a lot of people didn't notice it at first either, but Booker and the main character from Bioshock 1 are actually the same person. BS1 took place in a parallel world with a parallel Booker. The evidence for this is supported by Booker being able to use the DNA locked pods. Just an interesting fact a lot of people seemed to miss.

Thank you!! Do you have any agreements or disagreements? I enjoy hearing others opinions!

I actually returned infinite not 4 hours into it. I don't disagree with anything in your review. I would have given the game an 8 as well. Visuals/cutscenes were good but story with gameplay was not.

PS, there is someone blatantly disagreeing with every single comment here... Some people.

Nice review. I, too, am becoming increasingly disillusioned with the shooter mentality these days. I think I would have been alright NOT walking into a gun fight every time I turned a corner.

Like you mentioned, it's not that the shooting wasn't fun, but when all was said and done, it was the least impressive feature of the game...and ironically got the most attention. I would have liked more down time to simply take in and explore the world, maybe even expand on the relationship between Booker and Elizabeth.

And I kinda have to agree about the ending, too. Though it's predictability didn't really detract from it's impact, in my opinion, simply because it's woven together so wonderfully. It's especially evident on the second playthrough when you realize that they weren't really trying to keep it a secret in the first place: you are given the details of the narrative literally from the first scene of the game. The fun for me was picking up all those little details I missed.

I'm not sure you can make much of a weapon wheel when you can only carry 2 weapons :S

I don't think you understand. A weapon wheel is a system in games that allows you carry all weapons in the entire game. It was in Bioshock 1 and 2, Resistance 1 and 3, all Ratchet & Clank games etc.. I don't understand the point of taking away such a fun feature.

No, I completely understand - a weapon wheel is a system that allows you to quickly select a specific weapon, not to carry them all.
