Leviathyn.com | In this feature, we compare the worlds of both Columbia and Rapture from BioShock Infinite and the original BioShock.
I miss Rapture...it gave the right kind of vibe for Bioshock. Dark and moody. While Columbia was awesome and the world was near flawless, I think it was to bright on the surface, and I know it held a darkness to it, I felt it just didn't impact me like Rapture. Kudos to the developers once again though.
I absolutely loved bioshock. So much so that bioshock 2 is also in my top 5 this gen (story not as good but gameplay is better). Anyway I didn't think they could do it again, especially in a bright open space...but they did. Levime said he chose this to force them not to rely on environment to convey the feeling. From the opening Beast of America all the way through, it is almost flawless. I have never been in 2 worlds that are so well done that u feel like u know the place and the people. The combat of Infinite isn't revolutionary but its better than anything since bioshock. No other fps gives u this number of tools at ur disposal. I spend so much time thinking about what to use. In a way I wanted to revisit Rapture but I am glad we didn't because columbia is breathtaking. Spoiler!!!! I wouldn't count out a return to rapture.
