Bioshock Infinite / Version Played: PS3
2K Games / Irrational Games / PS3-360-PC / March 26th / $89RRP
The game takes place in the airborne city of Columbia, in 1912, where the player assumes the role of Booker DeWitt, a disgraced Pinkerton agent. Booker has been given the job of finding a woman named Elizabeth, who has been confined by a hulking beast called Songbird. Following in the footsteps of previous BioShock games, the world of Infinite explores the chaos that results when strong ideals are taken to the extreme. At the time of DeWitt’s arrival, Columbia is a hotbed of ultra-nationalism, specifically American exceptionalism, as shown by the copious numbers of flags, patriotic music, and propaganda posters that promote the idea that Columbia is a ‘haven’ from the so-called ‘unwanted’ of the world. The story is the main reason that you will play this game. It will suck you in and make you feel apart of a world like no game ever has.
