Bioshock Infinite Review | IGN Russia

IGN Russia: "Infinite: so beautiful and detailed endings in video games were not long ago. Immediately after you begin to remember: a replica of some characters, a second meaning, unremarkable events are key, but the room for interpretations is enough. Is it worth it? Yes, of course. Bad shooter can be a good, even very good game, though, and will never be outstanding." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.5/10

Russia should stick to dash cams videos rather than reviewing games.

There's no AK47 in the game.

Bang, 7.5 that's all you're getting!
Heisenburger  +   483d ago
It wouldn't be referred to as an 'AK' in Russia.

OT: I'm getting Bioshock as soon as I cash my check Thursday. I'm excited!
Eamon  +   483d ago
There's an AD in the game ;)
WarThunder  +   483d ago
And u should shut up and accept opinions... Every gamer/review site around the world has the right to review a game.

Hello guys, I'm from Russia. Sadly because of such reviews.
IGN Russia exists only 1 month but it already tries to provoke a butthurt from everyone.
You can see in comments everyone hates a reviewer not because of score, but mostly because his text is just a pile of crap.

I blame the reviewer, not the country lol.

Opinions.
DigitalRaptor  +   483d ago
No it's not. I'm sorry, but reviews are meant to be factual analysis supported by opinion. that's how it used to be before the Internet and the uptake of bloggers and selfish impressionable gamers calling themselves journalists.

A review is meant to speak to an industry not selfish opinion and desire.

Just watch Adam Sessler's review which contains reasons why, and factual ones at that why BioShock Infinite is nothing short of amazing and an instant classic. It aims spectacularly high, offers new things, pulls them off and drives the medium forward and is full of surprises.

Sorry but no. Reviews are simply ones opinion towards a game. There are no two ways about it, it is as simple as that. They always have been, and will always continue to be despite what people may perceive.

What you describe is a professional review, which again is just a professional opinion.

People are free to judge games however they please, who are you to say otherwise?
Danniel1  +   483d ago
At the end of the day though you shouldn't simply say something like; I hate this game because I hate all shooters or because I hate this type of art design and then give a lower score automatically. Opinion should not be the be all and end all of a review, you have to offer objective analysis of a game/piece of art/book.

For instance I hate Mass Effect 2, I just don't like it and nothing can change that, however I can say objectively that the game is an improvement in several areas i.e. graphics, shooting mechanics, dialogue wheel etc. Subjectively it feels lifeless to me but that isn't enough for me to tell a person not to like the game, that's simply a personal reason I might not enjoy it and it really doesn't help a reader make an informed choice.

In short; subjective opinion is a relatively small area of critique and just because a game may not be to your taste doesn't mean it fails to excel at whats it's aiming toward accomplishing.

In Merica people get butthurt by a simple opinion...

In America we recognize quality when we see it...
raytraceme  +   483d ago
Lol quaillity? America is the biggest product of bs marketing. Americans think that high fructose corn syrup, beats, Xbox, apple products are quality... Lol go to Japan if you want to see actual quality and not just marketing hype.

stumpa  +   483d ago
everyones entitled to their opinion even if it is total horse shit
stumpa  +   483d ago
all the reviews give it 9/9.5 out of 10 except this one which gives it 7.5 i wonder which ones complete horse shit comrade
kostchtchie_  +   483d ago
they are all horse shit, because they are all trying make a living out gaming, and none there opinions should mean shit to anyone, the gaming community is to heavily dependent on these garbage 1 out 10 reviews

and this thread goes to show the exact reason why reviews should just be reviews and the out 10 number system should be gotten rid of

Its a fun game for sure but reviewer is correct in regards to not using magic. I use the crows when they first come out but mainly just charge em with machine gun then melee. Its a run n gun, but set in a great place with awesome art design and voice acting. I think 7.5 is a little low. For me its an 8. The 8.5-10s, for me are for games like MGS, Infamous Spliter Cell Chaos Theory. Anyway, I'm with Elizabeth n about 5 hours in. Wounded Knee is fun battle.

Cheers.

The reviewer is probably butthurt because the game has portrays religious fanatics negatively.
Rhys3d  +   483d ago
The review tells that although the story, characters, artwork are outstanding, the gameplay itself is poor and boring, the difficulty level balancing is a joke and the game does not motivate to use all the abilities as you can just shoot everything out quite easily.

The question is whether we should rate this game as a game or not. It can easily get 10/10 as an interactive movie but the publisher should have made BI a interactive movie in the first place without bothering to tell this kind of story in a shooter format.
BattleTorn  +   483d ago
Are "interactive movies" an actual thing?

What are some examples, Heavy Rain, IDK?

I wonder whether 'interactive movies' will rise in popularity. There are definitely some games that border on the definition..
Rhys3d  +   483d ago
Well, Heavy Rain and The Walking Dead are good examples. And sales of Heavy Rain were good enough.

Gamers love good story, so it makes sense to create games focused completely on the story.

The problem is that the marketing of those games is diffucult. That's why L.A. Noire got a big share of GTA moments that actually make the game worse. That's why Bioshock Infinite cover lookes like one of those generic shooter game covers.
Campy da Camper  +   483d ago
He's spot on with that. The story and set pieces are great. The gameplay is Sky rim style. Just dash back n forth to avoid incoming fire n spay til u up close for melee. Have died 2 times in last 5 hours on hard mode. I like battles where you MUST pull back, regroup, hide and stealth kill to thin the herd. That's just me though. For me to like a fps is a huge feat.

I can't stand cod or battlefield because I dont do mp anymore. Soooo burnt out on run n gun but BioShock is fun. I do wish the enemies were harder. Its like in dishonored; tall boys should have been the norm.

They do give you a sniper rifle but you just run around and snipe on the go. There is no level where you hide and snipe. Every battle goes the same: you hear them talking, they rush you, you mow em with machine gun, loot body go to next area.

The story and ambienace make the game.
