Wow, the game has a 95 metacritic rating so far. I was predicting low 80's, the game doesn't look all that good - and I was a huge Bioshock fan.
I guess I'll have to buy it.
I actually prefer the first one. This one is very story driven and environment driven . They took out alot of the things that I loved like the ability to aquire vigor by killing big daddy's. Also infinite limite you to carrying only 2 guns. I don't get the tend now days of carrying two guns fuck is it annoying. ALso they took out different types of ammo used to kill different kinds of enemy's which also sucks. IMO infinite is good but overrated it seems although I haven't passed it yet so i won't judge right away.
This kind of talk always tempts me to retry the series, but.. like I said, it's storytelling on rails. Every book and movie is on rails too, so I shouldn't complain. It's just something about games, I guess. I want interactivity and personalization in game stories. It's hard to go back to ones that aren't (with some exceptions). Even if I can't create a character from scratch, I want a lot of dynamic choice making (Walking Dead is one such game.. You're given a prescripted character, but there's a lot of variation depending on the player).
All games are like that. Lol? Even skyrim is like that it's an open world if that what you mean
