Bioshock Infinite becomes one of the all-time top rated games

"Pulling in 43 critic reviews, Bioshock Infinite has a score of 96 out of 100 on the PC, making it the joint most-critically acclaimed PC game of all time alongside both Half-Life games and the original Bioshock, according to Metacritic's pooled scores. Out of the Park Baseball is also up there, but it's only of a review sample pool of five critics, so we'll call that an anomaly." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This what happens when you put your heart and soul into something you want to create. Hard work pays off! Take a lesson, EA.

To be more specific.. take notes bioware!

Bioware made the best trilogy story this generation. Bioshock 2 was a let down but Mass Effect 3 was an amazing game with a controversial ending... Bioware is doing just fine.

Bioware went to $h*t after they sold their soul to EA.. With todays technology, im sure they would pull off some great stuff but EA put their stamp on their software so now theyre a lost cause...

Damn straight.

This is what happens when you successfully get critics to give you higher scores through subtle bribery because you know that higher Metacritic == better sales.

Do you really believe that? I do believe that game scores are generally to high, but I don't think bioshock has been favored more than any other game.

btw, that's the wrong use of ==, its a comparison, what you're looking ofr is = which is an affectation.

What a completely negative and retarded view.. Complete ignorance, good job brother!

Do you not think it might be something to do with the fact that it's unique with awesome art design, and the developers were allowed to take their time to sculpt something brilliant, with interesting characters and a fantastic back drop..

Get back in your hole

LOGICWINS  +   1047d ago
With a recommendation like that, I might just buy it sooner!

No I haven't bought Ascension yet, I'm waiting till the Collector's Edition drops in price a little.

I'm loving the game so far, it definitely deserves the critical acclaim that it is receiving.
ALLWRONG  +   1047d ago
First one was better imo and twice as long. Still a great game though and deserves some of the high scores, but it's not a 10. Just a tad overrated, a tad.
Root  +   1047d ago
Yeah the first one is amazing, but it was obvious that nothing was going to live up to it.

This is a fantastic game but I can't help pointing things out while playing and thinking "That seems like a renamed Bioshock item" like the Killer Crows Vigor which is basicaly the same as the Insect Swarm plasmid in Bioshock for example

If you have seen the ending and really think hard you can piece together why vigors and plasmids are the same thing. I at first thought it was stupid having almost the exact same things in both I know why and its awesome.

Honestly I prefer this one over the first one. The thing I like about this one are the two main characters. The voice acting is uncharted level and the fact that it's more linear with the story is what actually makes me like it more. In bioshock the world was big that at times I would get lost on where to go. What I do miss is the horror element from the first one. Plus Elizabeth as a companion is done perfectly. Especially in combat.

43 reviewers.....hmm not too bad
SnakeCQC  +   1047d ago
it was okay but lack of good/bad endings kinda spoiled it for me
Bathyj  +   1047d ago
Too bad about the jerk that gave it 3/5.

Oh well, I dont need Metacritic,or any critic to tell me I should play this game.
Hicken  +   1047d ago
I'd like it if Tom Chick got into an accident where he was perfectly fine, except that he couldn't review another game EVER again.
Paranoidplayer24  +   1047d ago
This game was unbelievable. A true spectical of gaming and I would argue better than the first. Easily my game of the year.
clintagious650  +   1047d ago
Try an top the almighty GTA4 at 98, and we all know that game was lol. Just saying.
dboyc310  +   1047d ago
Dude anyone with a right mind knows that Rockstar bought critics. No way in hell does that game deserve to be higher being the weak one from the series. Vice city and San Andreas remain the pinnacle the franchise.
StreetsofRage  +   1047d ago
I called it. Goty without a doubt.
lovegames718  +   1047d ago
Sorry i have the game and doesn't deserve it. A game like Dishonored is better in so many aspects lol Especially gameplay and atmosphere.

By the way again with the metacritic bs lol Metacritic has no fair scale or explanation of how or why they choose reviewers. Trust me they have their own agendas as well lol You cant possibly say a game that say scored 96 with over 100 reviews aggregated is worse than a game that scored 97 or 98 with only 45 or so reviews aggregated that makes no sense and it isnt an even playing field. More reviews tend to higher the probability that game will get a lower score thats just how it is.

Anyway i prefer and enjoyed the other bioshocks better and this game is maybe a solid 8 for me.
