About BioShock: Infinite
Welcome to the city of Columbia. Floating amongst the clouds, cruising far above sea level, this is a place unlike any you've ever seen. The third game in the popular Bioshock series, BioShock: Infinite breaks away from the underwater setting of the first two games to take players into a floating city held aloft by dirigibles. The game is set in 1912. You play as Booker DeWitt, a disgraced former private detective who's picked up a new case. Your goal is to find Elizabeth, a young woman who's gone missing and return her unharmed. The only problem is that she's being kept on this flying city. Columbia was once a symbol of America's success as a nation, floating around the world as a traveling World's Fair, a marvel of human innovation. But strange things have happened since Columbia's unveiling in 1900, and now the city has disappeared into the clouds. DeWitt knows how to find it, but over the years stories have been told about Columbia having unlawful heavy armament and deranged citizenry. Do not expect this to be a pleasure cruise.

BioShock Infinite is a master class in storytelling. With exceedingly fun gameplay and combat, a beautifully intriguing world to explore, and an extremely impressive cast of characters, BioShock Infinite stands as one of the best first-person shooters ever made.
- Incredibly well-crafted atmosphere and intriguing world to explore
- The terrific cast and thought-provoking story
- The fun, easy-to-learn gameplay and combat
- The mediocre A.I.
- Some minor glitches that break the smooth gameplay, storytelling
- Like many great fantasy stories, some disjointed plot elements and holes create confusion
As soon as the credits started rolling at the end of BioShock Infinite, I scooped my jaw up from the floor and jumped on my laptop to start emailing my co-workers here at PSU. Just about everyone on our team was already knee deep in the story, and while I was careful not to spoil anything, I couldn't keep my excitement quiet any longer. I think I jokingly cursed the development team for making a game that was "so damn inc...
