was a good game but not that good. Part 1 was so much better.
goldwyncq  +   916d ago
The first game would have been better without the impossibly hard hacking minigame and the rushed ending. Because of that, my vote goes to Infinite.
BlackTar187  +   916d ago
See i thought the infinite ending was rushed and just subpar. Compared to part 1. It still is better then part 2 to me and i liked all of them.

I also liked alot of stuff int he old ones more. Like upgrading guns made them look cooler. More variance and reliant on the plasmids. I beat this gam eon ahrd basically with just lighting and Ramming.

Im 1/2 thru on 1999 mode right now and it isn't that hard. I feel the strategy in this one is very lacking compared to others.

Infinite is in my top 10 games of this generation. Right up there with Dead Space, Modern Warefare 1 and Shadow Complex.

Best game of this generation?
This game is being over-hyped really hard.
RioKing  +   916d ago
Yepp and the next really good game will be the best ever also.....
goldwyncq  +   916d ago
Or maybe it's just that good for some people? Everyone has their own opinions after all.
NegativeCreep427  +   916d ago
Exactly. People are really getting ahead of themselves.
Especially since The Last of Us has yet to come to the table.

@ Goldwyncq

You can have an opinion, but there has to be some validity in your opinion. This generation isn't exactly over and if it is indeed "over", it logically ended with the Wii U (being the first "next gen" system), which predated the launch of Bioshock Infinite. Since most people don't think we're in the next generation yet, there is still plenty of time for a better game to come out. To put it another way, you can list Bioshock Infinite as a GOTY contender if you want (that is moderately valid), but you can't declare it the GOTY without seeing what else the year has to offer.

For those of you that don't believe me... we still have The Last of Us, GTA V, MGS V (all signs point to PS3 / 360 release), Ground Zeroes, plus maybe even more games that could take the title.

Over-hyped? Only a person who never played the game and is therefore, ignorant as hell to condemn it so.
BlackTar187  +   916d ago
the games good but it is overhyped. I rally do enjoy it but the game isn't perfect in alot of ways.
EditorAtGNG  +   916d ago
The hype is justified. The more people play and finish it, the greater the hype. The reason why you think it is overhyped is because Bioshock: Infinite has been around (developed) for more years than most of the recent CoD and Battlefield games COMBINED. For several years there was constant barrage of new content and details about the game, and in my own opinion, the final product outshines everything they showed at E3 or game demos.

Oh and yes, while we are served with bland after bland meals of boring and by God, repetitive, uninspired and downright GENERIC FPS experiences, this new game not only expanded upon the already great predecessor, but managed to pull its own weight and achieve something incredible. It is unique. It is refreshing. It is a step in a new direction for FPS games and storytelling all together. It isn't just copy-pasted, half-arsed product that doesn't deserve anyone's attention.

So, yes, it is overhyped because IT deserves it.

Wut? That doesn't make sense, if it deserves the hype it's getting then it isn't overhyped.
EditorAtGNG  +   915d ago
I was kinda stating that if it wasn't obvious from the previous comment. Oh and I didn't say it was a perfect game - no game ever is. However, it is both unique, entertaining and has incredible and engaging storyline... that is enough in my book.
valormeer  +   916d ago
While I agree that it is a very good game. One of the best, It is THE best. (Btw I'm on my Second playthrough 1999 mode this time)
clintagious650  +   916d ago
I will say the game is great but IMO the gameplay wasnt all that reviewers say it was to be. I gave the game a solid 9 because I loved everything else about the game. The gameplay was the only thing lacking with limited weapons that felt repetitive at times & the game wasnt that hard. I havent tried 1999 mode yet but I still have to go finish off tomb raider which i put on hold due to the hype of bioshock infinite. The game is a great all around game & definitely a GOTY contender but those going into this game thinking the gameplay will blow u away might be disappointed. Everything else in this game is amazing though. Solid 9 out of 10 from me.
lovegames718  +   916d ago
I like how if someone says this game is over hyped they are just cod fanboys and like mediocrity. Guess what? IMO this game is over hyped. The game is good, but not that good. Gameplay and gunplay is meh.. Story is indeed good but story doesn't make a game only. A third person action game like Dishonored IMO is better with better art style, game olay , weapons, enemies and gunplay, And sorry since Mw2 I've been boycotting.Cod so those aren't the games I'm playing. I play Ni No Kuni, Souls series andGow mostly.

Its a good game just not awesome or game of a generation type.
EditorAtGNG  +   915d ago
I lost you after you defined Dishonored as a third person shooter.

Oh and gameplay and gunplay is meh? Do tell what tipped you off mostly? The arguably best A.I. in gaming for Elizabeth, the "flight and fight + open tear" battlegrounds, the unique enemies and powers or the sheer amount of options you have in combat?

edit: I won't judge people who do not like shooters and action games in general, nor for those who simply find the game... not interesting (or whatever). It's their own opinion and it values to them. However, I hate it when people just blatantly call a game "over-hyped" without offering any evidence to support it.

For me it's still Dark Souls but this comes close.
RonRico  +   915d ago
Part 1 was better. Can't beat the wrench melee in that game.
greyhaven33  +   915d ago
It shouldnt matter what other people think of the game. Play it yourself and decide. For me, no game has stuck with me and was as enjoyable as infinite this generation.

Maybe for you it differs, and that's ok, but for me and many others this game has struck a chord, the sum of its parts is outstanding.
