Bioshock Infinite combat trials: classic Bioshock action, wi

Your comments on our articles.

You've heard about the setting, but have the shoot-outs evolved?

Back around the time of the first BioShock, we predicted that the sequel would be set way up in the air. Well, we were wrong for BioShock 2, but it turns out if you wait long enough (five years) everything happens.... read more

It looks amazing! Never played a bioshock before but the things i read, images and gameplay footages i seen makes me want it so bad. Do you think i can play the the first quickly before it comes out? worth trying i think.

You've got almost 2 months. That should be plenty of time playing a few hours a week or something. They're a nice dose of something different. Well the first one is, I missed out on the second one and haven't found time to get and play it to my regret :( .

With a bit of effort you can get through the first in about 8-9 hours, and it will be amongst the best 8-9 hours of game story you will come across! However bear in mind that it's now a fairly old game, so forgive it any creaking graphics etc. (I personally think it still looks amazing, but i've met people who disagree)

The second is about the same length, but by a different studio from Bioshock 1 and Infinite so isn't quite as good...which isn't the same as saying it's not good, just that it had very big shoes to fill. And the Minerva's Den DLC is fantastic.

You should be able to get them for under a tenner each so well worth scrapping together your pennies young Cherry.
Why all the fuss about Dragon Age? Gears of War had a gay character years ago and no one complained...wait, you mean Marcus was straight :shock:

I can second all that, though I've not played the DLC. Also graphics wise, I think conceptually they are as good as they get, the sounds design is also top notch, plus tight AI means at the price you can now get them you shouldn't think twice. And yes the first, despite the ending, is better than second, but both are still amazing.

Therefore... Would you kindly go out and purchase them...

As for Infinite, I guarantee the game will be quality but it hasn't captured my attention for some reason... I'm not sure why, though maybe for the same reason that is meantioned in this article, we are now living in a post Dishonored world, certainly in some ways the graphics are reminiscent of those seen in Dishonored, which also has the stealth / powers / guns combination of gameplay as well as an innovative way of getting around.

All that said I'm willing to give it a fair crack of the whip following a handful of good reviews.
