BioShock Infinite Review: A Pretty, Empty Game | iDigitalTimes Review

"And once I get through the whole thing"

So the game is empty to you, but you haven't even finished it? Uh huh.

A reviewer that hasn't completed the game?
It's becoming way to common :/

Yeah, this is poor. I never bought into the hype of Bioshock 1&2, I thought they were pretty average to be fair and the shooting mechanics were crud. Now, Bioshock infinite I have been playing for several hours now and its stunning, all the little bits and pieces are so fine tuned. Great game so far and pushing my 580GTX to its limits.
Time to SLI me thinks.

If I haven't completed the game, there's not a single game I'd want to sit and watch someone else play.

Anyway, write something down when you're done with the game.....

Well people have their own opinions. I just don't agree with this one. Very good IMO.

Once again i fell into the hype and reviews. Im not saying this game isnt ok, but from the few hours ive played its not as good as ppl are claiming imo. Its also not really fun to me. Idk maybe i have to play more but its not gripping me like games such as Ni Nu Kuni, Demon Souls, etcccc have. Im having a semi farcry 3 effect and its boring me.

It's not flame bait. The guy makes a lot of good points and has joined in on the comments section. He's an intelligent guy. Just deal with it. The majority just can't handle people being at odds with their opinions. Your opinions aren't universal, you need to learn this. Just because a lot of people like a game doesn't mean it's universally good.

If you like it, just go on liking it. If someone else doesn't like it, with good reasons for not liking it, just leave them be.

I haven't played this game yet, but I suspect I'd have a similar opinion to this guy. I enjoyed the previous Bioshock games, but they do try so hard to be high brow, like a Christopher Nolan movie, and the gameplay does often feel secondary in the sense that you have more than enough abilities to just win every time, and fights lose any sense of strategy- it's just about leaving like 6 of every trap on the floor and blasting away with one of your many ridiculous weapons and a fire or electricity plasmid / vigor. I still think they're largely quite fun as games, but they're not as intelligent as they'd like to think they are. I think they're a step in the right direction for games, but they're far from perfect. To be honest, I'd much rather play any Deus Ex game.

It's a case of an overabundance of gameplay that tries to hide the fact that there's actually very little gameplay. There's a sense of having too much to choose from but then realising that it doesn't really matter that much what you choose.
