BioShock Infinite is a yet another installment in the great shooter series from Irrational Games. The series have managed to become worldwide known thanks to original, maverick stories and well-developed gameplay. This game, however, is not a direct continuation to BioShock and BioShock 2. It is a spin-off previously known as Project Icarus.
The story is set in the beginning of the twentieth century. As detective Booker DeWitt, Pinkerton Agency’s employer, the player has to establish himself as an independent detective after getting fired. He works on well-paid, but dangerous and complicated investigations. One of them makes DeWitt end up in Columbia, an unusual flying city. The town is supposed to have been a peaceful place, but it has ended up as a true fortress. It was taken over by a unknown group that kidnaps people and is a threat to the whole world without ever getting caught or penalized.
As detective DeWitt, we have to get a woman named Elizabeth free. It’s not going to be easy, because Columbia is ruled by two rivaling powers, and each of them has their own plans of using the girl. Thanks to the developers creativity, we can use various weapons and special powers. Like in the previous BioShocks we can throw lightings at the enemies or use telekinesis. Elizabeth also has many helpful abilities: she’s a telekinesis master and can take advantage of the Tears, which are places where the reality has been torn. Thanks to that she can summon helpful items from the other side.
With the areas bigger and more open than in the previous installments we can use different weapons like a sniper rifle, and there is also much more room for exploration. Enemies are equipped with advanced AI and they can use elements of environment in order to hurt the player as badly as they can. They can flank and get stealthy, too, overall doing a lot for the fun of playing. Created with Unreal Engine 3 with many improvements, the game has a climatic graphics and lets us interact with the objects in the locations.
