Bioshock Infinite Review – Ku Klux Klan ?
After the 1st Bioshock in Rapture, the 2nd episode in the skin of a guardian but always underwater… This episode brought us directly to the sky ! 😉 The Threshold between Heaven and Hell have always been very thin in every BioShock ! It always begins with a nice introduction, a peaceful place where nobody have to be scared… And then all of a sudden the White Power is…
Unleashing its fires of hell on you !
In Bioshock the 3rd it seems the segregation have reached the clouds !
The studio took all the things which were good from the previous Bioshocks, and added even more awesome ideas ! The work on this last release of the series is simply awesome ! Splendid graphics, rich story, great cinematics ! Really you feel like you’re playing in your own movie, everything is made around you to make you feel you’re not in a simple video game !
There’s truly life around you in Bioshock Infinite !
As in every other Bioshocks… there’s something smelly you have to discover, something you’ll uncover pieces after pieces… Bioshock Infinite was even more complex to understand, to the point that a Wikipedia have been created to understand the chronology of events ! It’s far to be the stupid FPS around the corner, where you’ll simply bash everything.
Well… of course you can don’t give a shit about the story, but then it would be money wasted ! Bioshock infinite is a game where you have to take your time, to look at everything this game have to offer ! It would be a shame to ignore all the work done by the developers, and to consider it as a simple shoot and kill. I would say that It’s a Smart FPS.
I don’t mean it’s only for Smart people, i mean it’s a game for those looking for a solid background, but also action to entertain themselves ! Like if they were reading a book over the whole night to Enthrall their mind ! Besides it’s incredibly addictive ! Believe me you’re going to play every day until it’s over lol ! Count 40 hours in the hardest difficulty.
Bioshock is real in the way you can’t carry 12 weapons like it’s the case in many FPS 😉 You’ll have to choose between 2 only, with of course the help of your melee weapon ! In Hard mode as the enemies are more resistant, you’ll make an extensive use of it as sometimes… ammo will begin to run out ! Trust me Melee is also very Fun when you send your opponents flying into the air or beheading them !
But these are not your only offensive tools, as Plasmids (understand magic powers…) have been replaced by Vigors, and… It’s exactly the same thing as their purpose is still… Blasting enemies with Fire, Cold, Electricity, Controlling them, making Defensive Turrets your own to kill their own troops, and Summoning birds to cause panic throughout enemy ranks ! Basically Vigors purpose is to Wreak Havoc.
Each of these magic powers and weapons can be upgraded ! For this you’ll need money and where do you find money ? by searching corpses but also all the places you’re going to explore ! So that’s why you need to take your time, otherwise i can tell you that you won’t be able to buy a lot of things… So search every little paths or secret rooms !
Your melee weapon will also act as a powerful magnet, to grab like a monkey one of the hooks on the buildings, using them to jump from one building to another like spiderman lol… but also to grab sky rails (Skylines), which are used to travel between islands with usual transports, and to let yourself go at high speed with only one arm attached ! (leaving your other arm to fire as much as you want 😉 )
It can lead to hot action sequences ! jumping from one skyline to another, changing of direction, moving at high speed and spreading bullets and vigor powers all around the place ! hearing your opponents screaming with terror as you fly like a super hero over their heads 😀
What i liked in this 3rd episode is that we can actually meet living people, and they’re not already completely mad ! We can see the life before everything turns to dust… Because in the 2 previous Bioshocks, it was more like we were the only sane person to walk on a no man’s land, which was once upon a time… a brilliant utopian project.
So it’s kinda refreshing to see people living their lives, taking holidays on a celestial beach, wandering the peaceful streets as if Columbia was the sanctum of redemption… even if it won’t stop the madness of man, to slowly bring them all to their doom in the end 😉
And also because… you’re a parasite to their perfect society ! You’re going to modify the balance and fate of Columbia, for the better and the worse of the citizens. Between religious extremism, racism, slavery and an utopian view of an impossible society, you’ll be made the leader against your will… of a new revolution !
It’s sad to know that the movie project concerning Bioshock, still haven’t started for an obvious reason… that the violence in the game would make the movie forbidden to a lot of potential young gamers. Though these same gamers surely saw Django Unchained which was already very good in terms of Free Violence… but well that’s another subject !
With such an epic background, as dark as it can be, games like Bioshock deserves to be adapted by masters to the cinema. Besides it clearly speaks about themes which are dangers, to any societies that would dare build their foundations on them. Such societies could indeed rise very fast like Columbia, but then would also start to crumble and finally collapse…
It would be an excellent fiction to be taught to students, just to show them…
What we should avoid to achieve !
The difficulty i played on : Hard and it was excellent !
How long is this game : 40 hours for me
Would i recommend it to a friend ? : Best FPS of the decade !
Did i pay for it ? : No… thanks Vuze ! 😛
