    A gorgeous, utterly immersive and hugely satisfying conclusion to one of the greatest video game narratives of all time.

    In terms of narrative it’s as dizzying, exhilarating, and divisive as the series has always been, arguably providing some of its most memorable sequences yet, and for fans it’s something that not only has to be experienced, but savoured.

    Feels very much like a send-off for the Rapture and Columbia eras of BioShock – a carefully crafted, appropriately mind-bending sendoff.

    Burial at Sea episode 2 is a brilliant conclusion to the story that started a few months ago. This great stealth-oriented experience with Elizabeth will make you feel fear, loneliness, hope and sadness like not so many modern games can do.

    BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode 2, for the most part, is a fitting end to the entire series.

    The lengths to which Burial at Sea: Episode 2 goes to distance its gameplay from BioShock Infinite's blueprint is outmatched by the indulgent spectacle of its writhing narrative - a risk not fully conscious of its consequences. Through success, failure, and to simply admire the sunset of a generation, the conclusion of Burial at Sea remains a worthwhile experience.

    What it gains on atmospherics, it lacks in gameplay and the story is uneven, saved only by a few brilliant scenes. [Issue#241]

    The stealth works really well, the shift in gameplay and narrative tone vis-a-vis Elizabeth v. Booker is immaculately conceived, and the writing is Levine at his absolute peak. Some end-of-series DLC provides fitting plot closure, some (Mass Effect: Citadel) provides spiritual closure. Burial at Sea sits the throne of the unique pantheon that accomplishes both.

Just when you think the game can't get any better, it does. If you enjoyed Bioshock 1, this DLC completely wraps everything up. It explains all of the things you think you didn't quite understand with Infinite, and lots of things from Bioshock 1. They even explain the Vita-chambers.

    Seriously though, this is the kind of DLC that's justifiable. Bioshock Infinite with the added DLC is nothing short of a masterpiece. It takes the cake as my favorite of the Bioshock games.

    Pros: The story
    The atmosphere
    The cinematic gameplay (the directing and perspective work on this is amazing)
    Completely new type of game play. (Combat isn't necessary, you have to find other solutions to situations besides just hack and slash)
    The characters

    Cons:
    It's the end of Bioshock.

    Overall, the DLC provides a good 6 hours of extra game time, if you take the time to explore most of the areas to do some side questing. I think I missed some voxophone recordings, still. Also, if you plan on playing through an even harder mode, they have 1999 mode and an extra 1998 mode.

    I don't give many (if any) games this kind of score, but to me, it's definitely a 10/10.

    strange DLC
    story becomes extremely convoluted at this point, so much it is crazy
    gameplay is more like a stealth game Has decent duration
