Bioshock Infinite PC Review | IGN

IGN: "Would you kindly play BioShock Infinite? Gameplay and the story combine for a majorly memorable shooter." (BioShock: Infinite, PC) 9.5/10

Already have it pre-ordered on Steam, can't wait!

Higher score on PC, yeah, always best on PC :)
JohnApocalypse  +   523d ago
By 1 decimal! :D
Aquanox  +   522d ago
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.

Amazon digital download of it (steam copy anyways) comes with X-Com and a $30 credit toward 2k games downloads.

Still chugging along in Dishonored. Now I have to buy this!
grailly  +   522d ago
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.
Sketchy_Galore  +   523d ago
Uh oh, 0.1 points higher than the console versions. Sound the alarms. Things are about to get seriously ugly in here.
MariaHelFutura  +   523d ago
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.
MariaHelFutura  +   523d ago
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.
joab777  +   523d ago
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".
Sweelix  +   523d ago
another supreme victory for the PC master race
DEATHSTROKE-cro-  +   523d ago

Steam is the way to go, FREE copy of XCOM, Bioshock, and the first DLC pack! Why can't it be Tuesday?!
Xristo  +   523d ago
You should check out GMG. They just added XCOM to their deal, you get $15 of credit, and 2 other games. Steam activated.

Cheers for the tip. For £24 I just got Bioshock, Darkness II, XCOM and Bioshock Infinite.
Xristo  +   523d ago
Glad to help a fellow gamer! :)
MeatAbstract  +   523d ago
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.
ginsunuva  +   523d ago
Exclusive reviews, IGN, Levine talking about appealing to fratboys, the coverart,......
Something just doesn't seem right....
LessThan2Tflops  +   523d ago
Was wondering which platform to get the game on... Nah lol I knew PC would be best :)
IK IR Y IP T  +   523d ago
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 !!
adorie  +   523d ago
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. :)
IK IR Y IP T  +   523d ago
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 ...
bunt-custardly  +   523d ago
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.
bayonetta  +   523d ago
This game is amazing
Letros  +   523d ago
Sounds like the PC version is a huge win!
Sizzon  +   522d ago
Great score and review, picking this up on PC abit later on.
