But BioShock Infinite asks us to consider that very question and gives an answer that mixes hope with bitterness, wonder with despair and allegory with history. The game doesn't offer any advice about how to make everyone get along better but it makes a powerful argument for owning-- and owning up to--all of our collective past.

My love of the original BioShock is unwavering. Irrational's previous foray into a dystopian society explored the ways in which the foundation of civilization crumbles when everyone has only their own desires in mind. The powerful themes resonated...

How do you critique a dream? It's the problem we face in reviewing Irrational Games's BioShock Infinite , a game that straddles the gap between an adventure title and a first-person shooter.The visuals within BioShock Infinite can be awe-inspiring.That's...

"You just complicate the narrative," sneers one character to Bioshock Infinite protagonist Booker DeWitt. And what a narrative it is. If you strip away the first person shooter elements, the swashbuckling combat set in a city amongst the clouds, and...

While it's got its share of nagging problems, Bioshock Infinite still stands as one of the best games of this year, on Mac or any other platform.

There is a true richness to BioShock: Infinite that is difficult to put into words. If you were watching someone else playing it, and they weren't a history buff, you might be tempted to push them out of the way, telling them you ‘get the game on more...

Well, somebody bothered. The big complaint aimed at the perfectly entertaining Bioshock 2 was that it rested on its considerable laurels, that it re-trod, if not narratively then in every other sense, what had made the first game so interesting. It was a...

One of this year's biggest game releases is finally out in the wild, and while the game has been with us a few weeks now, it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally sit down and enjoy it, but with so much hype and anticipation prior to the games...

BioShock Infinite is a first-person shooter video game, and the third installment in the popular BioShock series. The campaign lasts anywhere from 12 to 15 hours, with plenty of items and side areas to explore and scour. We follow the story of Booker...

I hate it when I’m supposed to be reviewing a game and it makes me cry at the end (both that it’s over and just, well, generally). I completely forget any issues I had while playing and it makes me want to slap the highest award I can give on it. It’s...

The most frustrating part of this review is there's so much I can't tell you. Still video doesn't capture how much fun the game is. It certainly doesn't show you the scope of the story, the ties to Rapture, or why Elizabeth tells Booker that there's...

There was much gushing praise written before, and on the day of, the Bioshock Infinite release. The praise went as far as to call it an instant classic and one of the best games ever. I beg to differ. While the game is good, it is certainly not as...

Gorgeous to look at and complex in its construction, BioShock Infinite is a captivating addition to the popular first-person-shooter series.

Like any good film, book or work of creativity, Bioshock Infinite leaves you - more than anything else - wanting to talk to anybody that'll listen. Its climactic scenes made me jump up and babble at my partner for five minutes straight before I realised...

Infinite is a decent shooter that derives its action from the foundations of the series. The gameplay doesn't always make great use of new mechanics. Elizabeth is not believable enough and the city of Columbia is wasted potential outside the brilliant...

Where to begin with this game; I'm at a loss for words. When the original BioShock graced our screens all those years ago, reviewers and critics fell in love immediately. It would seem that history is repeating itself, as we have before us another...
