Review Round Up - Bioshock Infinite

Following up the 2007 hit Bioshock was always going to be a challenge, even for a games developer as focussed and bold as Ken Levine's Irrational Games. That his team has waited almost six years to do so says everything you need to know about where Bioshock Infinite is coming from. Thankfully, the wait has been worth it, if the reaction of the gaming press is anything to go by.

At the moment, Bioshock Infinite has a remarkable twenty reviews delivering 10/10 or 100% scores, with praise being almost unanimous across the spectrum.

"Infinite is as lavish as it is cerebral, as difficult as it is accessible. It'll be many different things to many different people, and it will be discussed, dissected and deified for many years to come," reckons GamesTM. "Both a breathtaking achievement in videogame storytelling and a marquee example of a game that will stick with you long after you see everything it has to offer. Calling it simply a first-person shooter is practically an insult," declares The Escapist.

"BioShock Infinite's big thoughts and complicated narrative don't obscure the brilliant action game that carries those messages through," adds Polygon. "BioShock Infinite is damn near perfect," says Destructoid, cutting to the chase rather neatly.

Even the broadsheet Daily Telegraph is smitten, once again lavishing top marks and gushing that the game represents "a fabulous piece of storytelling, thick with foreshadowing to a gut-punch of a finale."

We've also got our own review, and deem it "a wonderfully complete game" and that "the final few hours will leave you staring open-mouthed at the screen".

Bioshock Infinite is out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. You should probably buy it.
