BioShock Infinite Review in Progress

IGN has stated in a recent review-in-progress for Bioshock Infinite:

"Yes, Columbia is stunning from a scale, scope, and art-direction perspective, but on a raw graphical level it is a bit underwhelming on the Xbox 360 version I’m starting with. Textures are muddy and low-resolution and the framerate takes regular slight-but-noticeable dips. It reminds me of the console version of Dishonored in that way."

The PS3 version of the game has already been leaked online a whole week before release! Some people are already playing it on modded PS3s. However, they are a very small minority since only old PS3s with firmware version 3.55 or lower can be modded. They are saying that the game is awesome especially the visuals and the music.

They won't get jack S*** from Irrational. I pre-ordered and wait on my fellow Steam community to give me the best value for Bioshock Infinite via Pre-order rewards. Last I checked wewereat 86% till Xcom: Enemy Unknown, The last of the pre-order rewards.

Steam has the absolute best incentives for picking up Bioshock Infinite on the PC!

Edit: I stand corrected. 93% and it looks like Xcom is coming in before the day of release. Congrats to those that made it possible.

Part of me doesn't want to see or here about the review. I think I will leave gaming sites starting now. I don't want to even risk spoilers with this one as well as seeing scores influences much of what I will expect. Shakes fist at air for GTA IV 10 when San Andreas got a 9.9 IGN. Farewell N4G and other gaming sites. See you after I beat the game

Interesting. I'm waiting for a few months for this one to go on sale on PC before I buy, but it's sad to see how current-gen consoles can't even handle current-gen games without making significant sacrifices.

Ken levine said the PS3 version is the best console version, while this guy is playing the 360 version also its the end of the generation right now what you expect. When PC parts are getting out dated I am positive you can see dip in performance.

If you have the money I would say buy this game full price, support the developers especially irrational because they are building something better than every game release so far that anyone bought at full price recently.

Link to Ken Levine's quote?

EeJLP-1196d ago (Edited 1196d ago )

May not be what classic is talking about, but here's something I found:

"PlayStation.Blog: How is work proceeding with the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite?

Ken Levine, President and Creative Director, Irrational Games: Look, I'm not blowing smoke here. We were Xbox-first for the original game, and now we have something to demonstrate to the PlayStation 3 audience. We love the platform. I have three PS3s at my house. It's a great game system and I love the kinds of games that are coming out on PSN.

The PS3 has a different architecture than we had encountered before, but because we helped port BioShock to the PS3, we've become very familiar with it. And we have a new engine for BioShock Infinite, so we started the game knowing we'd be on PS3. We started thinking about how to leverage the multiple cores from the start of development, so we're in a much better place this time on PS3."

But quote or not.. the PS3 version comes with the original BioShock (in the US, maybe all of North America), which seals the deal of the PS3 version being the best console version as far as the total package goes.

PC version it is... like there was any doubt.

I've passed on every game this month, for Infinite.
I hope it turns out well.

Mottsy1196d ago (Edited 1196d ago )

Same here! I just watched the up at noon interview with Troy Baker and I am soo hyped for this game!

A little long but worth the watch

HammadTheBeast1196d ago

eff their opinions, buy it anyways :)

Myze1196d ago (Edited 1196d ago )

Tomb Raider was too good to pass up. Would strongly recommend it, even if you have to wait for a good sale. But I agree in that this (Bioshock) is definitely the biggest game on my list till The Last of Us.
