Synopsis and Features
The City of Columbia was built and launched by the American government in the year 1900 as a beacon to symbolize American ingenuity and exceptionalism. Columbia is a floating city that stays suspended in the air with the help of giant blimps and balloons. The city was named in homage to the female personification of the United States and was designed to be a floating Worlds Fair that would travel the world.
Later during the game, Columbia undergoes a transformation and reveals itself to be a well-armed battleship capable of raining down deadly attacks, leaving the people below at the city's mercy. The American government disavows the city as they lose control over it. Columbia, then disappeared off the map only to appear to impose its will on the people below. Civil war eventually breaks out in Columbia and different factions are formed. The faction in control of the city are the Founders who are led by Zachary Hale Comstock and they are opposed to any foreigners being given the same privileges as Americans.
The other major faction existing during this event is the Vox Populi, who are a bunch of rag-tag resistance fighters, led by Daisy Fitzroy. Vox Populi consists of members from several factions with similar ideologies, that want to free Columbia from the rule of the ultranationalists. After years of war, the members of Vox Populi start using more violent and brutal methods to fight the powers-that-be.
The game takes place in 1912 where you assume the character of Booker DeWitt, a disgraced former agent of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency. He is hired by unknown individuals who want a young woman named Elizabeth rescued from the floating city. Elizabeth has been held captive for the last 12 years as the Founders believe that she has the power to end the conflict and restore control of the city back to them. The Vox Populi would rather kill Elizabeth than let her powers be used by the founders. The game also deals with Columbia being ravaged by tears in the fabric of space-time continuum which seem to one of the powers Elizabeth has been given.
BioShock Infinite combines some role-playing elements with a first-person shooter experience similar to the first two games. Find and collect weapons to use while you help rescue Elizabeth. Booker is also able to use a variety of powers and abilities with the help of vigors and nostrums that are found throughout Columbia. Nostrums help improve Booker's passive abilities like strength and damage resistance while the vigors grant powers like telekinesis, manipulation of electricity and controlling animals. Team up with Elizabeth and use her powers to enhance your own while you escape the city.

Now let me start this review by saying - I HAVE NOT YET FINISHED THE GAME. I must have clocked in about 4-5 hours. No, this is not exactly a review for the game which I'm sure is going to be excellent. This review exists for the sole purpose of showering praise upon flipkart. For the first time, in a very long time I have actually got a Pre Order on the exact same date as the release date. Even the CD is in excellent condition. Even the much talked about reversible cover is given (which I was hoping they would give), which is the first thing I noticed and immediately changed.
Now the installation itself. When you open the box you'll immediately see three CD's. Yes, that's because it's a very huge game - 17.5GB of installation so make sure you have free space. But that's not the scary part. When you do begin the installation you will notice, it's a STEAM game. Now experienced steam users or people with low net speeds will immediately be disappointed. Yes I was too but don't worry, this game doesn't download any of the files from steam. For he first time, all the installation files are installed from the retail disc. Lastly, this game requires a shitload of graphic memory. So make sure you have a decent rig that will atleast run this game on very high or high settings (because frankly, there is minimal to no difference between high and ultra, unless you are playing on an extremely high resolution)
I guess that about sums it up. Please buy this game. I have only played for about, 5 hours but it's already turning into one of the best FPS's I have ever played.

I completed Bioshock Infinite 2-3 days earlier and I can conclude this easily that it will be the biggest/best game of the year!
To the new people, I suggest try the original bioshock before this one. Atleast get to know what the first game is all about. In your mind there may arise various questions depending on how attentively you play the game. So it'll be better if you know Rapture's universe as well, before trying Columbia.
The game's graphics are AWESOME! There is some heavy post processing in it, so the game looks very good even on DX10. The best part is the storyline. Its one of the most memorable you'll find in a game. Some of the great recent games like Tomb Raider, I was over them in just a day after completing it, but it's been 3-4 days but I can't get Bioshock Infinite's story out of my mind.
Combat is pretty much fun, given the new kinda powers, the vigors, and the various weapons, from heater to repeater, hand cannon to shotgun, carbine to sniper, etc. My fav vigors were charge and shock jockey. I kinda missed a multiplayer. The skylines can perfectly fit into a decent multiplayer. But still singleplayer's the best thing.
All in all, be the judge yourself. I'm sure you're gonna love this game!
After about the last 15 minutes or so of Bioshock Infinite, I sat spellbound, watching the credits roll while my mind was swirling in an attempt to fully comprehend the implications of what I think one of the best endings ever experienced in any medium of entertainment. Then I watched it all over again.
And the 12 or so hours that leads up to this powerful and mind blowing ending had been equally impressive. The air-borne city in the clouds Columbia is breathtakingly gorgeous (and equally mysterious) and so are the art direction and the soundtrack.
The story of course is outright brilliant and the strongest part of the game, supported by very memorable characters with Elizabeth leading the cast. She surely is the best companion character since Alyx Vance in HL2 and much more.
The combat, while being very solid, is the weaker point in the game as it almost follows the Bioshock formula of mixing gun play and vigors (aka plasmids). It remains fun throughout but does not introduce any new concepts except skyrail combat which is really great but remains underused.
Bioshock infinite is definitely a game that will surpass being just a game and go down in the history as a work of art like Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Final fantasy 7.
Please do yourself a favour and just play it before getting spoiled. the money spent is well worth it.
There are no better words to put this.order this game right away.This is money well spent.I preordered this game received the game little late but oh boy Bioshock:infinite is awesome.
Unlike previous games this game is based on Unreal 3 Engine (previous games were based on Unreal 2.5). If your comp has high config you can see the details xbox or ps3 can never deliver.you will fall in love with the art work of this game.
this is where Bioshock infinite disappoints.enemies are little repetitive but fun.some of the upgrades are useless and does not add excitement to the game. combat sometimes feel unbalanced
This is where Bioshock shines.DO NOT READ SPOILERS. play yourself and you will know what i am talking about.i am science fiction fan and this story is better than most of the sci-fi movies.
overall 9/10 you will definitely play this game again on easy to go through the story again.start with Hard difficulty.other modes are easy except 1999 mode which is recommended for 2nd playthrough.
