Hyping it AAA.

Looks like a fun one-and-done, like the original.

you never replayed bioshock? :O what didn't you like enough?

Gameplay is mediocre and once you know how the story ends, there's no motivation to see it again, at least for me. It was an excellent game, though.

the powers weren't balanced well enough to give you a good alternative to basic set, but I loved to replay it just to make the splicers, big daddies and security system all kill each other.

so apparently they dropped the multiplayer ideas.

That means people need to buy it, the only way to keep these story driven and focused video games around.

That was fun. I wouldn't mind running through it again for fun, but... it's not a priority.

Can't wait looking forward to this game :)

Hope they implement the things as well as the demo walk through showed :)

I'm hyping it AAA. Looks awesome.
#157 Posted by Chiddaling (9106 posts) -
Not sure what to think. I beat Bioshock 1 a year or two ago and loved it. I have Bioshock 2 on my 360 but never got around to it. Is it worth playing Bioshock 2?

put me in for AA hype, its just a straight shooter now.

what was it before?

I meant the series

Graphics took a big nose dive compared to the initial reveal, hope the story is good.

Oh, and I want that damn statue so bad. :cry:FireSpirit117
Same here but I don't I will get it I have the Big Daddy figurine when I preordered Bioshock.

I think I might just get the Premium Edition and not the Songbird Edition but that statue would look awesome next to my Big Daddy Figurine.

Initial was likely on PC, this was likely on Console.

I still need to beat the original. But I got distracted because Steam had a sale and I bought a crapton of other stuff. This one's looking fantastic.
#163 Posted by IgGy621985 (4798 posts) -

It'll probably get 10s all over the place when reviews get live, but somehow it just doesn't look that good. It doesn't have that "something" the original Bioshock had. When I saw the first trailers for original Bioshock it blew me away instantly. Infinite? It's kind of meh, IMO.

Maybe not if you loved Bioshock 1. I think it's a better game but I didn't like Bioshock very much.

Here's the boxart

I know it doesn't really matter, but I kind of wish they'd produce better box arts for their games

BioShock_cover.jpgOfficial_cover_art_for_Bioshock_Infinite

Quite unattractive on both accounts

The game will probably be quite good though.

#167 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11846 posts) -

They should have had Elizabeth somewhere on the box.

I, The Great Cheleman, vote AAA.

#170 Posted by MercenaryMafia (2917 posts) -
AAA
#171 Posted by Wanderer5 (25702 posts) -

Would probably get the Premium Edition (really good CE) for PC, but man this and Sly 4 are releasing so close to each other.:\ My wallet am cry.

Also that a nice boxart.

#172 Posted by TheEpicGoat (2006 posts) -

Since there's no multiplayer to drag down the score, AAA.

#173 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -

Decent box art. But you know, guy with gun.

Maybe it will help sales along. "Giant with drill" might not have grabbed the uninformed shopper much.

#174 Posted by BadNewsBen (1493 posts) -
I'm not sure I've seen enough to make a good guess at it, but I'll go with AAA. If the atmosphere and story are anything close to the first two, I'd have no trouble saying this is my most anticipated game of the year for 2013.
#175 Posted by blackace (20743 posts) -
I think it will be "AAA" as well. The game looks incredible. I already pre-ordered the Premium game and have started playing the puzzle game that you get with your pre-order. I need to finish that so I can get all the bonus stuff before the game gets released next year.

You get stuff from that puzzle game?

Yep im pretty sure you can unlock in game items from the puzzles

#178 Posted by PhazonBlazer (11846 posts) -

Are the puzzles any fun or do they suck?

#179 Posted by ps3theJT (1137 posts) -

Box art looks dumbs. AAA for me, Can't Wait.

#180 Posted by whiskeystrike (12068 posts) -

Excellent thread Wesley, even if it did originate in 2011 =P

I'm giving it a safe AA. Just seems like it won't quite have that oomph the first one did to fill expectations.

#181 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16612 posts) -

I wonder one thing about this boxart...

If you turn the box around, do you see this ?:P

Box art's meh, but I do quite like Booker's design.

The alternate cover is even worse than the original cover.

Hell yes.

#190 Posted by PinnacleGamingP (5208 posts) -
if this game doesnt get its cover right they better start thinking about a new series
#191 Posted by Cheleman (7676 posts) -

Terrible alt-cover.

#192 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21724 posts) -
Don't like the floating building in the background. looks very good overall.
#193 Posted by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

Very good. I like it, it's supposed to look like some art styIe from back then.

#194 Posted by getyeryayasout (7497 posts) -

My most anticipated game, 9.5.

#195 Posted by SaltyMeatballs (25150 posts) -
Good looking game, except the gunplay, so an 8.5, AA.
#196 Posted by MW2ismygame (2183 posts) -

Amazing thread dude !

This game looks great I cant wait to get it.

#197 Posted by Obviously_Right (5095 posts) -

I vote AA.

Can't see what all the hype is about.

#198 Posted by Bardock47 (5294 posts) -

Boxart is lame...ecspcailly compared to Bioshock 1 (even 2 was better). While I understand the sales game and geneic action man with gun helps. I feel like some articic integrity could've been retained. Hell, songbird is cool looking like the bid daddys, and Elizabeth has enough sex factor to puch units. A nicely styled cover of those too would work! (and also emulate and refernce the Bioshock one cover nicely)

On topic, AAA at the very least. A couple of 10's as well though, one of my most wnated games (First one is my GOTG, so its safe to say im excited:P)

#199 Posted by eboyishere (12681 posts) -

AA. I feel Infinite might fall flat with everything that has been going on in development
