    Official Bioshock: Infinite Discussion Thread

    So there have been a couple reviews for Bioshock Infinite come in and they are very positive so far. It's very early but there are a couple that I found. IGN just posted their's giving the game a 9.4 and I think that makes it their highest score of the year so far. Another small site gave the game a 9.0. Here are the links below if you would like to read them. I will post some more from the bigger sites when they become available.

    IGN is getting raped for having the exclusive on this title... I have seen it all over the web

    IGN have really signed their own death sentence

    It showed that ING was getting free rain all over the title and many were up in arms about it

    And here is why

    I don't understand why. I'm sure IGN payed to get the exclusive rights to the early review. I know people hate IGN but it's just a move to generate traffic to their website. This coming from one of the biggest IGN haters from a few year ago. I seriously doubt they got this for free.

    Oh I know. Not trying to kill the messenger. I honestly think it is a good move but people will hate on IGN for the sake of hating. I see it as good business others see it as a $#@! move. Whatever. Looking like Infinite is going to be awesome based on the couple scores we have here.

    I see that and understand.. But to have exclusive all over a title and this is not a good move... I assume it is not the smartest move by anyone

    Ohh $#@! off. That's pathetic. IGN and other news outlets are in competition, so what that IGN secured early review rights? What difference does it make? Whether it was an exchange of money, or because 2K has been impressed with IGN's work, it somehow got this exclusive and those who complained would have been just as happy to have got the same.

    Basically this.

    About Bioshock: Infinite... only two more days. I'm hyped.
    I talk to myself because I'm the only one whose answers I accept.

    IGN is merely the "EA" of game reviews. A lot of people just hate them no matter what.

    Holy $#@!! Didn't think posting a review for a AAA game would turn into a big debate about review exclusivity.

    To be totally honest, I would immediately discard IGN's review's credibility. Wait for the other reviews to come in and use metacritic.

    Gaming journalism man..

    I've never understood the IGN hatred. Their reviews are only so valuable as the footage they reveal, and their video reviews have always done an excellent job relating various aspects of a game. The only gaming publications whose reviews I respect for their standards and quality of writing are Edge and Eurogamer, who are despised for giving average scores while IGN seems to be despised for giving high scores. Everyone else is just a name and number to me.

    As for the game... I liked Bioshock but wasn't blown away by it. I expect the same of Infinite, though from that review I'm definitely more keen on the setting of this game than the last one.

    IGN would not have paid for this. They would have been crazy too. It would have been 2K asking them if they would like to have exclusive rights. There must be some favour in return, though it could have been anything -- maybe IGN has given the title "extra" coverage or something.

    Incidentally, our copy was sent out on Friday and hasn't arrived yet. This was the same for many other websites.

    It would have been really Stupid for IGN to pay for exclusive rights to review the game before anyone else

    And i bet that would piss many off
