BioShock Infinite Review (PS3) PSLS

“Bring us the girl, wipe away the debt,” That’s something that you’ll hear a lot as you make your way through Columbia, the city in the sky. Opening on a note very similar to the original BioShock, you enter a lighthouse in the middle of the ocean and are thrown into the sky to begin your journey to find Elizabeth to simply pay off your debts. Booker doesn’t necessarily start off as the most likable character, but intrigue will leave you driven and you will hardly be able to put the game down until after you’ve watched the credits roll. From the moment you start BioShock Infinite, you know you’re in for something special. (BioShock: Infinite, PS3, Xbox 360) 10/10

Jeez, this one just can't miss.

It really can't. I'm still of the school that there's no such thing as a 10/10 or perfect score, but Infinite is very close. My only issue is so far is the extreme directional audio. You have to be directly facing NPC's to hear their conversation, and distance isn't really affected for the audio. Other than that, it's brilliant. Oh, and it doesn't have the creepy factor of the first game. It's bizarre, but not creepy.

Check out PSLS review policy. 10/10 doesn't mean it's a perfect game.

Another perfect score!

For some reason I just read your comment in the Target Lady's voice from SNL.

Looks like the hype train is in overdrive.

My review was actually specifically looking for mistakes and negatives to avoid the hype train. I was going to pick apart this game to it's every flaw. The problem there lies in that even looking for flaws, I was unable to find any that marred the finish of the title. No game is perfect, but Infinite is damn close.

Looks like haters be hating with claims they refuse to justify.

At the very least, most of the reviews justify the score with powerful and highly literate reasoning. There's very little room for exaggeration for games with the scope, detail and masterful execution of Infinite.

I emplore you, tell us why it's overrated rather than using redundant nothings. Something tells me you can't, which leads me to believe you really don't have the mind to understand or analyse everything that's on offer in the city of Columbia let alone the BioShock universe.

Combat isnt that good leaves alot to be desired and gets pretty repetitive. The game is a solid 9, certainly not a 10 imo. The best part of the game is the atmosphere and story.

I agree I coming near the end of the game and been a grind for the last hour or so. Im at part where you have to find the 3 tears.

I never got sick of the combat. The Vigors that you pick up offer enough variety, and the enemies and environments that you fight in change up enough to keep things fresh, especially the further you get into the game.

Hype train is full steam ahead lol Ppl see a few good reviews and instead of thinking for themselves tag along for the ride lol Solid 8 nothing more

A game like dishonored is better in almost every respect especially better than bioshocks mediocre combat. If you never picked up Dishonored and think Bioshock is a 10 plz pick it up dishonored will be a 12 for you!
Wedge19  +   538d ago
I did actually play Dishonored and prefer Bioshock Infinite over it. I was not following the hype. I went into my review looking to nitpick the hell out of it and find the mistakes, but lo, I found none. The story and the world are beautiful, and all of the pieces fit together in such a perfect fashion. Dishonored was a great game, don't get me wrong, but it did not have the same emotional draw the Infinite gave me.

I saw no review that said some thing abour Move controller or if this Bioshock still gives a free copy of the original game as it was promised ros the PS3 users when the game was first announced.
