Bioshock Infinite Review | Games Abyss

Justin Belin writes In the months, weeks, days and minutes prior to Bioshock Infinite’s release, the only thing loftier than the floating city of Columbus depicted therein was the state of fan expectations for the long awaited follow up to the 2007 classic. The original Bioshock drowned our collectively lazy expectations of what a FPS could be beneath a placid ocean surface that belied a terrifying world beneath. Arguably not since Half-Life and its sequel had gamers borne witness to so perfect a marriage of gameplay and narrative in this particular genre. For a game set so many leagues beneath the ocean, Bioshock possessed a surprisingly heady premise; the city of Rapture and its denizens stood as a grotesque perversion of Ayn Rand’s opus, Atlas Shrugged. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
