PluggedIn - BioShock Infinite Review

PluggedIn - When does religious devotion cross the line from piety to blind zealotry? How does national pride morph into tightfisted jingoism, and progressive change rot into racial hatred? Come to think of it, what makes us so certain that our reality is the only one we're connected to? What if our smallest decisions could somehow alter dozens if not hundreds of other realities similar to our own?

Those kinds of thought-provoking, esoteric questions might not seem like the sorts of things you'd normally be wrestling with while playing a video game. But some games (and, therefore, gamemakers) are all about the questions and the unknowns. So they artfully weave those kinds of "how comes" and "what ifs" into twisting, turning storyline quests for answers. Such is the case with the action-adventure shooter BioShock Infinite. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -
