Would You Kindly ~ Bioshock Infinite Burial At Sea Review

images (7)


Bioshock Infinite has been out for a little over a year now. Now we finally have all the DLC in our hands, mainly the two episodes of Burial at Sea. I will be reviewing both episodes as if they were one, since it really feels like they should have been included together in the first place. So, would you kindly:


Episode 1: The first episode of the story features a familiar setting and game play. You play as Booker, like in Infinite, and also have Elizabeth as a companion character as well. Gameplay is the same, Elizabeth can open tears at will, toss equipment, and various other stuff. The story takes us back to the familiar place of Rapture, with the graphics of Rapture enhanced; as in all the Big Daddy’s touched up, the scenery, and the general textures. It looks very good, despite Bioshock Infinite not being the most graphically demanding game. The story takes place before the first Bioshock and is takes place after the events of Bioshock Infinite. The story in episode 1 clearly shows us that this is an epilogue to Infinite and prequel to the original titles. Without spoiling too much, the little sisters play a significant role throughout both episodes, and a surprise show down at the end will may make you want to throw your controller at the TV.



Episode 2: The gameplay and the way you approach enemies this time around, totally changes the formula that Bioshock and System Shock both have previously used. This time around stealth is the heavy factor and Elizabeth is the new playable character, she is sadly no where near as strong as Booker was, and she can not just simply run into a room like Chuck Norris and hip fire kill everyone in sight. You must use wits, powers, and weapons while avoiding straight up confrontation with your enemies, especially the Big Daddies. The story takes place right away after the first episode and you can expect a few familiar faces appearing such as Atlas from the original Bioshock. Elizabeth is now emotionally scarred after everything she has been through, she can now see through all the doors with her unique ability of opening tears, and can see in to time (the past, present, and future) along with all of it’s variables and constants. All the “Infinite” versions of her seem to all come down her purpose in this story. Which is a huge twist and you should love it when you see it.


Replay Ability: High

Final Verdict: Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea now  a complete package is a cool addition to the lore. If you are into the story of the Bioshock games, this really clears some of the confusing parts about the original games, even though  some things about Infinite still remain a mystery. Most questions for Bioshock have been answered, with some shocking revelations, along with some cool gameplay that helps you push through the story. Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea gets a 9 out of 10.

Have any of you played the original BioShock? What did you think of it? Are you ready to dive back into to see what the city of Rapture has in store for returning players? If so, sound off in the comments section!

Irrational Games Team Laid Off, Is Bioshock VITA Vaporware?

Bioshocks Elizabeth In real Life

Update: Apparently Ken Levine is giving the Bioshock development responsibility over to 2K Games. Hopefully the VITA game will still follow through on the original vision of being a standalone game with a full console game experience separate from the other titles events but in the same universe, as its initial announcement had caused much anticipation on the platform.

Ken Levine of Irrational Games announced today that the company responsible for Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite is effectively “winding down” as we know it for favor of a new game design technique involving smaller studio employment and larger focus on what the gaming community wants. Irrational Games is set right in our home town of Boston, Massachusetts. Ken also announced that the primary focus of himself and his team right now is to help those who have been laid off to find new jobs in the games industry, in addition to his new unannounced project’s pre-production which has apparently been going on.

‘Narrative-drive games that are extremely replay-able’ (paraphrased slightly) is the only hint of future projects to come given by Levine at this time. Levine also mentioned that the next project will be completely digital and have no physical edition. This move has many questioning the future of the Bioshock series as if to completely ignore that Ken and his remaining 15 members of staff want to do something groundbreaking again.

However, VITA owners were promised an exclusive game that would stand on its own for the Bioshock series – and that may now be vaporware or if it’s not then it could be outsourced for development elsewhere. Ken Levine announced that his team is heading up a brand new project and will still remain under Take-Two Interactive, the hugely successful parent company of Rockstar Games (makers of the Grand Theft Auto series) and more.
