X360A Review: BioShock Infinite
Written Monday, March 25, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
BioShock was fantastic. Sure the final boss battle was a bit crappy and the combat wasn't exactly stellar, but we don't think we'd be all that controversial in calling it a masterpiece. With that in mind, expectations for BioShock Infinite are sky-high, which is presumably why Irrational has taken the action up into the clouds for the city of Columbia.
A city of frightening contrasts, Columbia is one hell of a place, hiding a dark heart beneath verdant green grass and blue skies. But what of BioShock Infinite's heart? Is it a worthy successor to BioShock and the deep sea dystopia of Rapture? Can it possibly deliver more than BioShock did? And perhaps most importantly of all, can Dan get through the entire review without using the phrase "would you kindly?" Spoiler alert on that last one: no.
