Still Playing: Bioshock Infinite

EDGE: "Games aren’t movies. They’re theatre. Each one an in-the-round performance with room for improvisation and that encourages audience participation. There’s a theatrical maxim that goes by the name of Chekov’s Gun, and what it boils down to is that if a rifle is hung on the wall of a set in the first act of a play, it must be taken down and fired in the second. It ties in to both efficient, lean design with no surplus ornamentation, and the old adage that you should show rather than tell. Games do this all the time, as you perhaps watch enemy soldiers in an FPS using heavy weapons you’ll surely be using against them later, or more specifically in BioShock Infinite when you meet the Handy Man at the fair." (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The game sucked. It was way over hyped. Played through it beat it, and never looked back. There are far better games out there, and this one seemed like they were kinda of lazy.

The presentation and the story was extremely well done. The amount the details this game had was enormous and there is no way the developers were lazy making this game.

The gameplay on the other hand was nothing revolutionary, but at least for me it was enough to make me play the game.

To me Infinite is truly unique but it feels in some form empty when it comes to gameplay. It just bashes waves and waves of enemies at you and it gets rather repetitive.

Hmmmmm, sounds to us like someone has yet to actually play the game.

What ever, anytime someone has a problem with a game on this site they go, o you have never played it. People on this site are about as dumb as it gets. Beat the game and, as i said, it was not that great. @Mykky i feel the same way, i kept playing for the story because the game play to me was nothing special. I finished it and thought that it was no wear near all the great reviews and scores it had received

Yet, here you are!!! Now do the rest of us dummies a solid and play the game for real or STFU.
