"Bioshock Infinite is the type of game that comes along maybe once in a generation – it is the pinnacle of storytelling in gaming. The yardstick that all others should be measured by. The game is not perfect. The middle third of the game almost drags it down. That said these flaws stand out because the rest of the game is just so excellent.
I can’t begin to convey how essential Bioshock Infinite is to gamers. Not just to those that buy it and play it. No. Bioshock Infinite will hopefully pave the way for better stories and storytelling. Like many great books, movies, plays etc Bioshock Infinite asks lots of questions. Presents the player with uncomfortable truths. It doesn’t then spoon feed you every answer."
