Writer on BioShock Infinite Describes Gameplay Possibilities as “Endless” in a Big Open Area

Most story focused games follow a strictly linear approach to the world, and the combat that resides within. For such a narrative heavy game like BioShock Infinite, many would assume this trend would be followed, but apparently things are a little more open than we may be expecting. Irrational Games writer, Drew Holmes, spoke with the PlayStation Blogcast, about just how open ended the combat in BioShock Infinite is: (BioShock: Infinite, Irrational Games, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Put the hype machine into overdrive! Get ready to be disappointed.

I wouldn't say it that drastic but you have a point there. The hype for Bioshock Infinite is already very high and with statements like that it'll go through the roof. Game press will keep a close eye on every little detail because the expectations are very high. Revievers could put any little thing they don't like into a negative and scores could suffer from that. I don't really care about review scores that much but i know some people do.

Overhype is never a good thing that's for sure.

Press seem more than impressed so far based on the 2.5 hour demo they've been allowed to play through. It doesn't mean the whole game will be as good (I'm sure it will) but it's a good sign.

@dbjj
What on earth are you talking about? They're only claiming that there gameplay is a lot more emergent than normal corridor "shooters". Whether you find this overhyped or not does not change that fact.

I want this game so bad, this and The Last of Us.

The original BioShock is a classic and this is Ken Levine's follow up to that game. Therefore, I don't see how anyone could think this game will be disappointing.
Septic  +   837d ago
Well, whilst we can be assured by Levine's track record, I think gamers have become more clued up when believing developers who start touting terms like "endless possibilities" and similar bold statements.

I have high hopes for the game and it looks set to be amazing but I won't let the hype machine sweep me off my senses. But hey, if this does achieve these 'endless possibilities", I sure won't be complaining.

I don't think this game will disappoint me but saying Endless possibilities is just ... talk
