We are continuing our epic look back at one of the best first person shooter series of all time, BioShock. So keep on reading to see what we think of the third game in the BioShock series.
BioShock Infinite (2013) Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 3
BioShock Infinite took the series (at first glance) in a different direction as instead of going to the underwater city of Rapture. This time we went up into the flying city of Columbia. BioShock Infinite was actually set many years before the events of the first two BioShock games and while at first, it seems like a totally unrelated game. Much of the gameplay elements that were in the first two BioShock were present.
We are talking learning new different abilities by altering your DNA and just the general gameplay had that BioShock feel. While the gameplay was similar the story was certainly not. This time around you play as Booker DeWitt who is a Pinkerton agent, whose life is a mess and he is hired to go to Columbia and “free” a girl and then bring her to these two people. It is really hard not to say too much without spoiling the game.
But once Booker gets to Columbia and meets Elizabeth. He realizes all is not what it seems and Columbia is on the brink of a huge civil war thanks to its crazy leader, Comstock. Elizabeth is more than meets the eye and can open rifts to other dimensions! Booker soon sees this as more than just a job and develops a real bond with Elizabeth.
BioShock Infinite has one of the most engrossing stories you will ever encounter in a game. Elizabeth has to be regarded as one of the best accompanying characters in any game and you really do care for her safety as you progress through the game. With an ending that will stay with you for days after!
