BioShock Infinite Review | Falconaire

“BioShock: Infinite” is not a bad game, but it is not the greatest game of all time. Instead of buying the game for $60 at any game retailer, wait until the price drops to around $40. Great character development, a unique soundtrack, an amazing storyline, but horrible gameplay. (BioShock: Infinite, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 2.5/5

It's not a 5/10 game either. Please dont underrate games for the sake of hits

People cannot have different tastes nowadays? Why?
RoninRaven  +   411d ago
Yes, by all means, but I'm pretty sure the score was meant to attract attention, not to express his "honest" opinion.

@Ronin
How so? If I was a reviewer, I would express my opinion on it even if it was a mediocre game in my opinion.
Not every low score is given to attract "hits".
RoninRaven  +   411d ago
The game has many shortcomings I know, but there are also many aspects to like if you look at it in an objective manner. And @Locksus, I agree not every low score is given to attract hits. This one from my perspective is.

I respect his opinion, but even at the lowest, this game is no way a 5/10 game. 5/10 is mediocre and this game is far from mediocre. the majority of critics agree with my complaints

I seem to be in the minority because I agree with the review.

Definitely not giving this site a click...

I thought it was pretty boring *shrug*

Then you havent played it.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   411d ago
I guess everyone who didn't like it mustn't have played it according to your logic. Ever heard of different opinions?
I also found it boring.

I bought Infinite, play it until the end, and sold it again. Just like Blastoise said: it was pretty boring and this came from a guy who loved Bioshock 1.
RoninRaven  +   411d ago
I just hate when people use these kind of gimmicks in exchange for clicks. Just stop.

I think what you really hate is when reviews don't confirm your pre-existing beliefs.
Jek_Porkins  +   411d ago
On a score scale of 5, a 3 would be average, anything lower than a 3 means the game is broken, which Bioshock Infinite was not.

Even if you didn't like the story or thought it was boring, the games mechanics certainly weren't busted.

Opinion shouldn't effect facts. Opinions must be said in the end of the reviews.. Lately reviews are all about opinion. They only mention what they want instead of saying the facts of the game.

There are many other factors to make these reviews dumb. Sometimes they give someone a game like GT5 who's a fan Forza ( The oppesite is true ). It's like reading fabricated stuff lol. Just be fair and say what's good and what's bad without opinion and then say the gameplay is boring to me or No smoke and damage is a deal breaker for me. That's how reviews should work. Give a specific score for the opinion so it could be changed to the reader if they accept the negatives and don't mind them or they are a big deal for them that's why they don't like it.

Your maths are phenomenal!

since when would 3 be an average of 5?
No Way  +   411d ago
Well.. 3 is kinda the 'middle' on a scale to 5.
1 and 2 comes before 3, where 4 and 5 comes after 3.
So, if you look at in it that aspect, then it does make sense..
1nsomniac  +   411d ago
You've Jedi mind tricked me, i kinda agree with what your saying now. It's been a very long day though & I am very tired & now very confused. It's these 12 hour work shifts on a Saturday, they throw me about a bit..
No Way  +   411d ago
By me, job well done.. I say. ;)
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   411d ago
No 2.5 is the average score on a scale of 5.
It's very simple.
zeroskie  +   411d ago
N4G is sometimes good for telling which sites to never visit again.
PockyKing  +   411d ago
Lol, since when do people here defend an opinion? Thought it was all about the score.
1nsomniac  +   411d ago
I completely agree with what he's saying but a 3 or 3.5/5 would be more realistic I think.

Your average being 2.5/5 this game being slightly better than average, so a 3/5 or even maybe a 3.5/5 would be fair.

I'd give the game a 7 personally. The only BioShock I really liked was BioShock 2. I'm well aware how weird that is!

Good one
