OnlySP: BioShock Infinite is very much a BioShock game. That’s obvious from the title, of course. But the two games are more intrinsically linked than that. Characters, mechanics, and settings are all shimmering reflections off the same pool of water: the final image is slightly different, but both come from the same root picture. BioShock and BioShock Infinite are in a quantum entanglement, stemming from the same strand of DNA. As a result, they share many ideas.
We’ve seen how the characters are similar, and how the mechanics equate, but now, in the third and final article, Lachlan Williams explores the worlds of BioShock and BioShock Infinite, examining how Rapture and Columbia are imitations of each other – the two sides of the same coin.
Finally, this article contains SPOILERS for BioShock and BioShock Infinite. But you knew that already, didn’t you?
