Does Bioshock Infinite Have “Too Many Ideas, Too Many Characters”?

MM writes: Bioshock is overflowing with ideas: there’s a religion based on American Exceptionalism that rewrites the founding fathers into deities, a society based on institutionalized racism, commentary on worker’s rights and labor, equivocating rebelling against racism with racist oppression, dimensional travel, probability, fate, how personal history changes human nature, and a bunch of other stuff I’m forgetting.

Bioshock fumbles with a lot of these ideas because it simply doesn’t have the time or space to take them far enough to say something interesting about them. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No it doesn't. thank God it's not another 'one dimensional' shooter (pun very much intended). Infinite introduces something fresh and new to an otherwise stale genre. The religion, the science, the trans-dimensional shifts - all put together excellently. Moreover, the placement of infinite with the Bioshock universe was done with such flare and finesse, that it made the science and religion, as well as the characters, even more grounded within it's universe.

Are you serious? Tell me 3 things you can do besides shooting people in the face, and walking around in a cutscene. There is NOTHING new presented in terms of gameplay.
