IGN: "Would you kindly play BioShock Infinite? Gameplay and the story combine for a majorly memorable shooter."
Already have it pre-ordered on Steam, can't wait!
Higher score on PC, yeah, always best on PC :)
By 1 decimal! :D
They wouldn´t knock off more points for console´s vesion unless they want a fanboy riot but in reality, the difference if much bigger than 1 decimal. 60fps, 1080p, high res textures and DX11 effects are a HUGE improvement over the console´s versions.
woohoo, can't wait
seriously, I can't wait!
http://www.amazon.com/BioSh... Amazon digital download of it (steam copy anyways) comes with X-Com and a $30 credit toward 2k games downloads.
This is a great deal can use that $30 on gta v
Same here all in HD glory with my GTX 690. PC gamers game victorious!!!
Still chugging along in Dishonored. Now I have to buy this!
dishonored was a hard game to finish I thought, it starts out really good and some how gets less and less exiting towards the end.
Uh oh, 0.1 points higher than the console versions. Sound the alarms. Things are about to get seriously ugly in here.
Honestly, it's just weird to give it 0.1 higher. Almost pointless.
They cited the better graphics and being able to select between vigors & weapons without having to pause the game.
Still, that adds up to a 0.1? As trivial as it sounds 9.7-9.8 would make more sense. Whatever though, Bioshock Infinite will be great where ever people choose to play it.
Its almost as if they try and decipher where metacritic might lie. Though, its knida wierd that it got only a couple fractions of a point higher than Gears of War Judgement. Everything about this game is unbelievable except a bit in the middle. Though i would argue that it may be alright to have a few hours in which u try out all ur cool toys. Also, i am lost as to how u reach the arbitrary conclusion that it isnt genre saving. Anyway, i simply cant wait. I want to see if my plot twist guess is anywhere near reality. I can almost bet one thing though, when I am done playing, i will be wondering, what deserves a 10?
While point 1 does seems a bit meaningless the things that are improved such as the framerate and better controls seem like they would cause a slightly higher score than the basically unnecessary ".1".
another supreme victory for the PC master race
can master race play Uncharted 2 (GOTY), God Of War, Last Of Us, Beyond, Journey, LBP, Heavenly Sword, inFamous, Halo, Gears, Mario,Zelda.... no, you play GTA4 as a giraffe. nice
who needs those games when we have sim city
U sound mad
LOL getting disagrees for telling a fact yeah, you really enjoyed Sim City with all the problems in last weeks. Planetside on PS4 was teased so yeah, I'll play it :-)
@Sweelix and WarZ :D
Getting some Déjà vu vibes. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Steam is the way to go, FREE copy of XCOM, Bioshock, and the first DLC pack! Why can't it be Tuesday?!
You should check out GMG. They just added XCOM to their deal, you get $15 of credit, and 2 other games. Steam activated. http://www.greenmangaming.c...
Cheers for the tip. For £24 I just got Bioshock, Darkness II, XCOM and Bioshock Infinite.
Glad to help a fellow gamer! :)
IGN got the exclusive review and gave it a shining review? Never. I'm sure the game is going to be well received regardless but I simply don't trust IGN.
Exclusive reviews, IGN, Levine talking about appealing to fratboys, the coverart,...... Something just doesn't seem right....
Was wondering which platform to get the game on... Nah lol I knew PC would be best :)
The pc version looks fucking amazing this is what next gen consoles will look like ! But besides that the experience will be the same besides pausing to change vigors. You should def use the razor naga mouse with this game hotkey all vigors and salts truly amazing. Starting 1999 mode now !!
Hello. I am going to play on hardest difficulty from the start. Please let me know how 1999 mode is through PM's, as I intend to jump into that after beating it. Also, you lucky bast. :)
Just beat BioShock omg this game is perfect it really is i hope this game don't get lost in the shuffle for game of the year because it came out so early truly spectacular ...
Aging console graphics hardware lets down Infinite, too. When the original BioShock debuted on Xbox 360 in 2007, it was an eye-gasmic wonder – a blissful marriage of Art Deco art direction with top-shelf graphics technology. Fast-forward almost six years, and Infinite is every bit as effective in the former area, but in the raw graphics department it fails to make anywhere near the same impact on either Microsoft or Sony’s box. It’s far from an ugly game (quite the opposite, really), but the low-quality textures, wooden NPCs (aside from Elizabeth), and occasional minor but noticeable framerate hitches are all maladies the first BioShock avoided. It seems Infinite’s stratospheric ambition is a bit too much, at least in the technology department, for the creaky hardware of the aging consoles. The PC version, as run on mid-range hardware, makes no such visual compromises, with gorgeous high-resolution textures, detailed faces, and smooth performance.
Shocked ...... NOT. This will be one of if not the best game of the year.
This game is amazing
Sounds like the PC version is a huge win!
Great score and review, picking this up on PC abit later on.
