BioShock Infinite
Date:June 2022


A game full of missed opportunities. Columbia is a setting with some potential, but the narrative blows it. Finkton, in particular as a sequence, might be the low of the entire Bioshock series. There are some fun parts after it, though, including some exploration in the crumbling city in the sky, a little horror, and some enjoyably powerful aerial combat. Too bad the ending then bookends the whole thing with more than a touch of egotistical writing. Maybe Burial at Sea will redeem some of that.
There are flickers of really good parts in this game; but overall they didn't commit to the narrative and the game overall feels rushed and a little forced
TBH doing the bang bang pew pew kaboom was a lot of funa nd I was super happy to replay the game for this alone. Story is def wack tho, and man those moments at the end were oof sometimes.
The game is great and the narrative is interesting, but the writers were not good at fleshing out the interesting points of the story. It had the potential to be an all time great!
