Uncover the dark secret of Columbia

Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.
  • B>The City in the Sky. Leave the depths of Rapture to soar among the clouds of Columbia. A technological marvel, the flying city is a beautiful and vibrant world that holds a very dark secret.
  • B>Whip, Zip, and Kill. Turn the city’s Sky-Lines into weaponized roller coasters as you zip through the flying city and dish out fatal hands-on punishment.
  • B>Tear Through Time. Open Tears in time and space to shape the battlefield and turn the tide in combat by pulling weapons, turrets, and other resources out of thin air.
  • B>Vigorous Powers. Throw explosive fireballs, shoot lightning, and release murders of crows as devastatingly powerful Vigors surge through your body to be unleashed against all that oppose you.
  • B>1999 Mode. Upon finishing BioShock Infinite, the player can unlock a game mode called “1999 Mode” that gives experienced players a taste of the kind of design and balance that hardcore gamers enjoyed back in the 20th century.

  1. Nice...
    by lukas Huber, Germany - Mar 11th 2014

    I kind of hoped that there will be more freedom to move around, hence the hole game is now set in the open space.

    Otherwise quite nice, not as eerie as the other parts. :)

  2. It'll never be as good as the first time...
    by daniel Hewett, Canada - Mar 4th 2014

    If you like ambigious endings and nonsensical plot twists, then this game is for you! Pretty to look at but ultimately soulless, B.I. is a sad last chapter in a supremely promising series.

  3. Boring, crude and non-immersive
    by Ken Spiker, USA - Mar 4th 2014

    I really didn't like this game. I have to admit it's cleverly conceived and it played without a hitch on my setup, but there was something crude and simple-minded about the execution of the game world which turned me off. First of al, the world of BioShock Infinite is wildly improbable, a violation of all known laws of physics and technology. Set in a sort of 1911 American universe there are so many contradictions and impossibilities it is difficult to embrace this world, even considering that for video games we always have to bring a large amount of willing suspension of disbelief.

    The graphics are crude and cartoonish, the characters are flat, mechanical and one-dimensional. It rather looks like the garish display of a pinball machine. The bright illustrator graphics and improbable physics subvert the necessary feeling of immersion, which I think is necessary for the shooter genre. The historical references and iconography I found not only improbable, but somewhat offensive. Symbolism of American patriotism and revivalist Christianity are distorted and inverted to form the phisosophical basis of this dystopia. Magic, which plays a large role in this game, seems out of place in the ersatz world of 1911. The combat mechanics lack subtlety and are pretty easy on medium setting. Though there are numerous robots in the game, the rest of the characters, the entire population of this city in the clouds, is robotic, soulless.

    These are my impressions from playing the game for only several hours. Perhaps after more hours of gameplay I might come to appreciate the refinements of plot, but I have little hope. As in the case of all games, what people like is a very individual thing, and others seem to have liked this game a lot. I am giving only my personal impresion. I'm just saying that at least one veteran gamer found this game boring, slightly repulsive and definitely non-immersive. Individual experience may differ.
