Tom Towers is joined by Phil Fogg in an aural review of Bioshock Infinite, Ken Levine's latest opus.
7/10 my ass
It struck me as a surprise that the 7/10 is an opinion.
Lol, Phil Fogg gave it a 5/10, so be glad I went with my score as the "official" one. :P
It's weird how quickly Bioshock Infintie got surpassed. It is a great game, don't get me wrong, and I think it deserves higher than a 7/10. But after the Last of Us and GTA V, it just seems to have lost it's shine.
Whilst its story and characters were highly commendable and engrossing, and its contribution and connection to the mythology of the "Bioshock" franchise was smart and delicately written. The games linearity and false advertising led consumers to create incorrect pre-conceptions of the game. In early demonstrations, "Irrational" led gamers to believe that choice and personal preference where huge factors in the game, only for these pre-conceptions to be shattered by somewhat bland, less ambitious than initially perceived combat and a limited choice...
Frankly in my view the first two were better!
