Bioshock 3 (infinite) quick review
First of all, I am a big fan of this series.
This game doesn't hold up well against the original; it is missing the creepiness and stress that the original did very well.
It doesn't quite live up to the hype either, you can easily tell that they had many good ideas that they either did not fully execute or cut from the final product.
Visuals and setting is very impressive as expected in a Bioshock game.
I would describe the story as something that was written by Bill Maher after watching Futurama's Farnsworth Parabox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Farnsworth_Parabox
The multidimensional aspect is interesting if you can keep up, and the social/moral implications are mainstream MSNBC as expected in a Bioshock game. I don't think the game aims to offend given the fantasy setting but some sensitive people may be upset.
Combat is now more Halo like, you feel like you are as tough as Master Chief and you are even given a regenerative shield early on. I simply equipped the fire grenade and played the game like Halo. (I like Halo)
Gameplay is more linear now, so much that the map was removed because you don't need it anymore. And like the original Halo, many areas are played through backwards and forwards.
Game plays with a predictable pattern though; a combat encounter followed by scrounging/exploration. It is easy to spot where the next combat encounter will occur; non-combative areas do not contain multidimensional tears.
It is still a good experience and fun play though; I would save my $60 though and wait until the price comes down. Overall 7/10
