Daily Joystick Podcast Episode 102 - Why Bioshock Infinite is a 7/10

Boosty from DJ writes "On this week’s podcast Episode 102, we discuss the recent comments made by a Microsoft employee and the Xbox 720’s always on proposition. We also talk about Mark Rein and his ridiculous comments surrounding Unreal Engine 4 and the Wii U. SEGA Australia closes its doors this year and Lucas Arts is no more. Also, on this week’s show, the Roundtable Talk is back and was all about Bioshock Infinite. We discuss our thoughts on the game and why we don’t feel its anywhere near a 10/10. This week on reviews, we take a look at God of War Ascension, Gears of War Judgment and the latest DLC packs for Assassin’s Creed 3 and a whole lot more. Also, in true podcast style we take your reader mail questions and give a shout out to the fans. So sit back, grab a beer and tune in to the biggest and best Aussie podcast in town. The DJ Team." (BioShock: Infinite, God of War: Ascension, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Nice podcast, enjoyed listening to it.

Kinda agree regarding Bioshock Infinite. This game was a bit of a let down for me, Bioshock 1 was the complete package for me, one of my all time favorites, even 2 was a better game gameplay wise but just had a weaker story and less of an impact.

I really thought this was the next step for the series, especially when all the reviews were looking great. But overall the story was ok, better that the average but nothing special. The gameplay was ok, the shooting was average, the vigors weren't near as useful as the plasmids were to raptures environment and i really missed all the planning that went into a battle in Bioshock 1.
The world was amazing and so was the attention to detail in it. But at the end of the day it was just a poor version of Bioshock 1 for me.

I enjoyed the character-driven story over Bioshock's "museum" kind of storytelling. I'll even say the combat is more visceral and exciting, even if the pre-planning element of the first is mostly gone. Not getting the complaints about the vigors either, the game would be A LOT harder without them. I get some of the complaints of the game and I certainly have my own gripes, but the game is still really great to me.

But really, just more tacky score-talk. It's been proven time and time again that judging a game with a score is useless and the most it does is get a rise out of people. Why not make people actually read the review and decide if the game is for them? It would save sites like this having to explain themselves to the rabid masses.

7/10, 8/10, 9/10 who cares this game is extremely fun to play and I accept it and it's flaws. I enjoyed the story, I cared for the characters, Columbia felt like a real place and while some might say "it's not scary/creepy" I would say you are not looking close enough because the undertones in this game are quite dark and very unsettling, despite columbia's seemingly colorful world. The way the game ends is pretty spectacular and it's just altogether a great game. What every few gripes and annoyances that come up gameplay wise can easily be forgiven as deep story/character driven FPS's like this don't come along very often.

Thanks for the awesome comments and feedback guys, its great to see people like you guys actually not follow the grain like everyone else does. I wanted to love this game so much, but it lacked the finer polish we wanted and need. its still a great solid title, just no 10/10 as we said.
