I recently finished Bioshock Infinite and, even if I am not the biggest FPS fan out there (anymore), I enjoy the occasional run with an FPS. Of course, when a game like Bioshock came out first, I immediately understood that we were dealing with something much better than the usual FPS: great atmosphere, amazing storyline, fantastic characters (both human and non-human) and fun combat system. This is one of those gems that come out once every few years.
When I purchased Bioshock Infinite I knew that Iit was going to be somehow different from the previous two episodes, mainly due to the change in the setting (sorry guys, no more Rapture), but I wasn’t expecting to like it so much more.
I mean, Rapture was really great, but it could also become a little
bit too claustrophobic after a while. Columbia is much brighter and wide and open that Rapture, which allowed me to feel a bit more lighthearted while playing. The storyline, though, is great as usual, with unexpected twists and turns.
Unfortunately, like every Bioshock game (and like every FPS, for that matter) it doesn’t last very long, but you are left with a feeling of completion nonetheless. I will not go for all the achievements because I am sane enough not to frustrate myself playing an FPS at ridiculous difficult with a gamepad, but I think I will be playing through it once more in the (not so distant) future.
Overall I think it might be the best of the series. What do you think? Do you still like Rapture more? 🙂
