Bioshock Infinite: An Alternate View

Bioshock Infinite has been widely praised for its writing, but surprisingly few have talked about its flaws. Newbreview.com's Ian Cox talks about his issues with the game in this alternate view. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Slowly the voices of reason are rising up. Infinite is not that great game that so many has praised it to be. It was like playing a COD single player campaign.

Nice article too for it mentions things that are true about the experience. Like a 5 year old DJ at a wedding reception, everything just kept changing. Nothing was steady or progressively good like the original Bioshock. I lost motivation halfway through the game.

It's really not the best that I expected it to be. It lacked the "feel" of a Bioshock game. And that wasn't due to it being in another location either. I don't know what it was, but it didn't play like a BioShock...it played like a shooter. The others didn't feel like that. Everything was cohesive and complimented each other. Here, the lines were jagged and the pace changes were jarring. The game was bad. Put on your shades and deal with it.

Voices of reason...? Maybe others just have different, you know, opinions? Honestly, it's like people have grown so egocentric they can't even grasp what subjectivity is anymore. Just because you didn't like the game doesn't make it a fact.

A lot of people have been criticizing the game ever since its release. Yeah it has flaws and there are definitely some missed opportunites (Songbird and the Vox), but I still found it great regardless and thought it did a lot really well.

Yea they are voices of reason to me because they agree with my sentiments. So um, what are you saying?

Is this a courtroom? Who is talking about fact? I can't find the term "fact" in my post, can you?

I disagree, this game has gotten nothing but praise. Of course, I have no problem with that. But now that the high has worn off and the praises has settled, those with a different opinion on the game are able to speak their minds and be heard. We couldn't be heard then while people praised the game.

I'm happy you enjoyed the experience. But do not let your appreciation for the game cloud your judgement when responding to a member with a different outlook on the game. Constructive criticism is cool but trying to bash my post is not.

"Slowly the voices of reason are rising up. Infinite is not that great game that so many has praised it to be."

"The game was bad. Put on your shades and deal with it."

I have no issue with your opinion or any negative opinions on the game. The comments I quoted are what I do have a problem with. You're not trying to voice an opinion when you say that, you're trying to present your thoughts as fact.

Again, I presented my sentiments. In my world, what I posted is truth. The FACT of the matter is you can't accept negative feedback on your beloved game. FACT is, it's a FACT that I didn't enjoy this game. The FACT is, when you don't agree with the multitudes, gamers within that group take it as a personal crusade to correct the "injustices" spoken. So yea, put on your shades and deal with it.

I can take negative feedback and that was never my issue. I don't think the game is perfect either. Like I said, missed opportunities and the game felt like it sometimes tried to do too much with the story for a 10-hour game.

When you say "It was bad. Deal with it." and implying that those more critical of the game are the superior opinion how is anyone supposed to guess you're intentionally talking to your own ego? When you post something or speak outloud, especially in that manner, you address others. The way you put it sounds disrepespectful and contemptful to differing opinions.

"The FACT of the matter is you can't accept negative feedback on your beloved game."

Yeah, continue to project your assumptuous and erroneous thoughts on me. I'm done here.

To me the characters were gimmicks and everything between the opening and the ending was boring typical CoD shooting levels, and the story content in them was melodramatic at best.
