Average User Score: 8.5May 3, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Sorry, but this game is just OVERRATED! I finished it two times, and I'm a huge bioshock fan, but there are so many flaws, that's why this game doens't deserve a good rating.
Here a the biggest mistakes, imho:
- poor weapon upgrades hello? bioshock's power to the people upgrades where kickass, and you could see them directly on your weapons!!!! )
- Songbird is just.... lame?! he hasn't any own story, no character, he just shows up a few times, screams, looks angry, just to die in the end! I mean, hell, the Big Daddys where so creepy, and they had a own story, but this birdy is just a lifeless object, and obviously, the developers didn't want to give him a purpose or an own story!
- Elisabeth: POOOOR relationship between her and the main character. She is only tossing coins and amo, and runs away one time because she is mad at you... I mean, COME ONE! Even my unborn son could construct a more emotional, deeper relationship between this to main protagonists..
- Story: Okay, the end is cool, BUT! The motivations of the inhabtians of columbia to blast my head off didn't satisfied me... in Bioshock, the splicers where degenerated junkies, most of them just wanted to kill and loot me. But in Infinite, the whole City just turned mad, and it just feels kinda unrealistic...
I give 5 points, because I still enjoyed playing this game. But after you have finished the game, and you start to reflect and think about the story, you will have to admit, that this game isn't that great, as we all thought it would be...… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5May 3, 2013I simply love this game. It's retro style sequences pretty much remind me off the good old game boy times, the 80's techno soundtrack kicksI simply love this game. It's retro style sequences pretty much remind me off the good old game boy times, the 80's techno soundtrack kicks ass, the sayings of both, enemys and the main character, are pretty funny, and the overall athmosphere is just nice.
Didn't played the main story so far, atm I'm on the misson to the clear all the outposts, so I can not tell much about the story, but the begining is fun!
I didn't bother about Far Cry 3, but this Standalone Spin-Off is a Must Have for Retro Gaming and Trash Fans!
At last, some informations to the german player out there, like me:
despite all doubts, the german dubbing is a good one. The sayings an robo voices are well translated into german. On top of that and that's a rare thing novadays Blood Dragon allows us to switch to original, english dubbing wich is, indeed, even better than the german ).
1200 MS Points means 15 euro, so go and get this game!… Expand
