Review: Bioshock Infinite | Pixelitis

"Bioshock Infinite is a hard game to judge. Do I critique it based off the original Bioshock, or as a stand alone entity? Certainly Bioshock was one of the most influential games of the last ten years, and fact has to be taken into consideration. Infinite’s comments on politics, religion and race—major aspects of the experience—are also worthy of their own separate articles. Let us not forget the violence debate surrounding the game and whether or not the ending is a logical and satisfactory conclusion.

Bear with me as I attempt to cram all this into one review.

As Infinite’s protagonist Booker DeWitt enters the sky-city of Columbia for the first time, I can safely say you will be in awe. An example of extreme American exceptionialism, the bright colors and early 1900s aesthetic make Columbia one of the most imaginative, beautiful and disturbing videogame settings in recent memory–even more so, dare I say, than Bioshock’s underwater city of Rapture."

- Lowell Bell (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9.5/10
