Bioshock Infinite Review (ThisisXbox)

ThisisXbox writes: "1912 is not exactly a positive time in American history. As you will see plastered all over the game. Racist propaganda is littered all over the streets of Columbia. You’re introduced to this facet of the city almost immediately as you win a raffle. Your prize, you get to be the first to throw a baseball at a black and Irish interracial couple. This kind of subject matter may be a little touchy for some, but it does wonders in showing just the kind of evil mindset that Comstock is using to indoctrinate the citizens of Columbia. One of the most harrowing moments of the game sees you fly over a slave camp watching black and Chinese workers sing their troubles away. It could be seen as social commentary as segregation is a part of this highly religious world. Religion plays a huge role in the game. Every solitary citizen of Columbia is driven by a prophecy that has been seen by Zachary Comstock. But there are those that don’t believe in the prophecy." (BioShock: Infinite, Xbox 360) 10/10
