Own ? First of all I was right.It got a 4 once all the shit, fake hype was gone... you are an idiot.You onwed yoursef just now.Second I destroyed you in a little troll thread remeber. You were weaving with your hands and crying like an infant "to mommy".It was hilarious. You are too easy.

Also 4 is a 4 is a 4. One of the worst scores this year.What a shame. I almost feel bad for the morons that think its a good game.

It is a good game, and a single digit on the Internet sure as hell won't change that.

Furthermore, GS still lists the previous 9.0 as the "official" score.

This is clearly a flamebait review but I do agree that bioshock infinite is bad game, brilliant story but awful gameplay, bosses etc

The gameplay was a big improvement over the first BioShock though - so perhaps that needs to become a 3 now?

Bioshock came out in 2007 and it had better gameplay and enemys than infinite imo, the vigors were just bad/boring in infinite and the handymen were just annoying to fight and not to mention that stupid ghost boss battle you have to do 3 times.

The game was just bad imo, would have been much better as a rpg so your could enjoy the story more.

Damn, that was someone actually reviewing Bioshock Infinite? I thought that 4 was someone reviewing new DLC that may have just been released for the game....

Damn. I guess I'm just good at it, then. And yeah, several of the vigors became pretty worthless, realistically. But, like I said, that's when you kind of have to make your own fun. Which, again, isn't the way it should be, but at least the option is still there. Bucking bronco and undertow were pretty much useless on their own, but using them when they weren't needed, and combining with other attacks was sweet. And yeah, Elizabeth's supply finding was just on a timer, but I got the hat that made enemies killed with devils kiss have a chance to drop salts. Combined with the.. shirt.. i think it was, that made devils kiss spread to other enemies when it killed someone, and I was damn near unstoppable at times, if I herded enough enemies close together, which isn't hard to do if you keep moving. It's actually a pretty similar strategy to what I use with both my Wizard and Barbarian in Diablo 3, now that I think of it. Huh... Interesting.

Ha, sounds like something I did with Twilight Princess in order to make that more fun. Instead of getting heart container after killing bosses, I leave them behind to stick with the three hearts capacity I start off with at the start of the game. And when I get the Blue Tunic, I keep that b!tch equipped at all times even if it means certain death if I get hit with an elemental attack. Makes the game a hell of a lot more entertaining than it would be otherwise as I really need to stay on guard at all times...

What do you mean it would've been better as an RPG ? That barely means anything. RPG isn't a genre anymore, its a formula, like open world or co-op.

#207 Edited by Stringerboy (7085 posts) -

Tom was spot on in that review. Although that score is way too low, Infinite deserves at least a 7 because it still had fantastic art and voice acting.

What I mean is it would be better off as a different genre because the best thing about the game is the story but u have to do 30 mins of crappy shooting gallery crap just to get the next bit of it, they have shown with bioshock 1 and infinite that they make average fps at best.

Bioshock one was saved by how good the plasmids where and they added to the story aswell, vigors added nothing to the story and most of them were bad so didn't help the game at all.

I really liked the story in infinite but its a shame you have to play a very average fps to get it.

Oh dear. It seems in between my last post and now, you may have lost your entire grip on reality, as well as the ability to form posts, or spell. Tragic.

I suppose the euphoria of being able to circle jerk with a single review after all this time, regardless of how trollish or meaningless it is, was too much, and it burst the blood vessels in your brain.

wtf is McShea trying to accomplish?

#213 Posted by sSubZerOo (43216 posts) -

I would have to agree.. Bioshock Infinite, is a over hyped piece of a garbage.. Subpar FPS, subpar plot that goes from a interesting ultra nationalist floating city to a stupid quantum leap plot line.. Making the two twists in the game extremely predictable.. The voice acting is good.. But seriously what major budget block buster game now a days doesn't have good voice acting?

#214 Edited by AznbkdX (3221 posts) -

That McShea fella is pretty interesting isn't he?

I haven't even played Infinite and I know it's no 4. That would pretty much mean its broken for the most part imo. I'm sure it has errors like any other game, but I really doubt its THAT bad.

Still, I give him props for being funny. :P

#215 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (14431 posts) -

This excellent video pretty much sums up my exact thoughts on Infinite to a T. I really hope Frictional can do better this next time around. There's a reason this games been all but forgotten by the most diehard fans in recent discussions, barring Mcshea's rather humorous Revisiting to the original inflated Score.

#216 Posted by chocolate1325 (32539 posts) -

Well someone should go back and review The Last of US and give it AAAA because McShea can't spot a good game when he sees one.

I watched about half way through the video you posted, and I just have to say. While both this and McShea's reviews are mostly negative towards the game, the video is BY FAR a much better review towards BSI. This one actually calls out the game mechanics unlike the thing McShea wrote which were all ideological pannings of what the game is supposed to do. Calling out the bs in a story is one thing, but saying something isn't to one's liking and therefore doesn't make any sense while wrapping that expression in a bunch of fancy words is the most childish thing to make yourself look professional, which was what McShea's re-review was doing. There was still some of that in the video, but that's not supposed to be professional so whatever, still a better review.

Gamespot's "Professional reviews," have been amateur hour for a while now. You can find much higher quality and more indeph video's on Youtube. It's pretty sad how low this sites fallen below the poverty line when you look back on what this place was like from an editorial point when guys like Greg and Jeff were around.

Luckily Greg went onto actually making games instead of critiquing them, bastion was Awesome.

Hes actually "mad". Hes the biggest most irrational fanboy of that pice of shit game. He wont show it since hes delusional enough to think the "forum persona" is something people give two shits about but hes one salty fanboy.

You so mad bro.Love it.And it's not me that needs a reality check.You have been delusional since this game came out.

I consider that a win.Just an fyi.You have a pattern using that one.

Go and play some actual good games dipshit.

#228 Posted by Ninja-Hippo (23433 posts) -

It hasn't been changed, it's just a second opinion. But McShea isn't doing himself any favours at all giving a score that low. I'm fine with scores that low if they're applied across the board, but Gamespot is similar to most other sites in only reviewing games in the 7-9 range. You cant just randomly start pulling out 4s for games which are by no means significantly worse than all the previous games you were slapping 7s and 8s on.

It got a 4 from a single reviewer who is a known contrarian and admitted hipster, that doesn't even change the official score of the website, 6 months after the game released, and that somehow negates all other review scores that say it's a 94% at metacritic, 9/10 here, and one of the better games of this year. On top of that almost everything you've posted is directed at calling me mad and stupid, which is flattering, honestly, but does nothing to help your case in trying to look like you're in the right.

Yea I would say the psychopath label is pretty justified. Other than the score given by this one particular reviewer being a 4, none of what you've said has even the slightest basis in reality. I mean, this is about as low as you could have gone at this point. After those last threads and now having to resort to this, it's reeking of personal vendetta don't you think?

Maybe it's about time you were honest about this whole thing. You just hate me, and it actually has little to nothing to do with the game, right?

#231 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9047 posts) -

It feels like Mcshea reviewed this game poorly because of his personal expectations. Shouldn't a reviewer at least try to review a game on itsown merits? It doesn't seem practical for a review to get so personal. Isn't the point of a review to inform people about a game in a way so that the consumer can make a more educated decision when deciding to purchase? I feel that reviews should be more about us and less about the individual. I don't want to hear what you expected Mchea. Review what's there for us...

I think you have some kind of fetish about people hating you.I have the feeling that if I say I hate you will get extremely aroused and start doing naughty things to your body.Talking about psychopaths.Jesus Christ.

I've told you multiple times I don't hate you at all.

1.You can't hate some you don't know.

2.You can't hate someone you dont give two shits about.

3.Hate is a very strong , bad and treturous emotion and I try to stay as far from it as I can.Something very extreme needs to happen or "be" for me to hate.

For example I hate rapists and pedphiles.Do you really want to be on that list? You are one dumb self entitled egotistical f*ck bro.

Anyway I think you are an asshole but thats only because you are. :> Also your taste in games is shit but thats your problem.

100% serious now. The game got the the high scores ONLY because of the hype.Plenty of people have now pointed out the many many flaws of both sotry and gameplay.The way I see it a review made now is 100 times more legit thanks to the fact that the hype is gone.Few think of Infinite as GOTY. All you hear is TLOU and GTA5 and for a good reason. Infinte is shitty.Deal with it.

#234 Edited by Vaasman (11480 posts) -

@beganoo

So by the logic of your own post, since you cannot hate someone you don't know, and you hate rapists and pedophiles, you are acquainted with every rapist and pedophile on the planet? I really think you may want to calm down and think about your posts a bit.

Also if you don't hate me, then why did you call me out specifically instead of issuing a blanketing statement to all fans of the game? I think it's pretty clear to any outside observer that you dislike me at the very least. Or is it that you secretly love me and are having difficulty expressing your emotions?

None of that has any basis at all, and the question of whether it's goty or not has absolutely nothing to do with the score it got just now from this reviewer.

Its an example.I (can) hate rapists and pedophiles as opposed to idiots on formus.To really hate someone I need to know him.

I call you out because you are the flag ship Infinte fanboy on these boards.

Talking about the general shift of opinion about this trash game.Many not considering it GOTY is just an example.

All you hear is TLOU and GTA5 and for a good reason. Infinte is shitty.Deal with it."

None of that has any basis at all, and the question of whether it's goty or not has absolutely nothing to do with the score it got just now from this reviewer.

Its an example.I (can) hate rapists and pedophiles as opposed to idiots on formus.To really hate someone I need to know him.

I call you out because you are the flag ship Infinte fanboy on these boards.

Talking about the general shift of opinion about this trash game.Many not considering it GOTY is just an example.

GO AND EAT SHIT YOU MOTHER F*CKER I HATE YOU SOOO MUCHH ARRRRR...

Just kiding.Pull you pants up damn. :P

But the general opinion didn't shift at all, those are simply newer games so people are talking about them regularly as candidates. Even if one of those wins, that has nothing to do with whether or not Bioshock Infinite is a great game or not. People who liked it still like it and people who didn't, didn't.

In fact, TLOU isn't praised much compared to GTA5 at this point, does that mean TLOU is a terrible game? If a single review says TLOU isn't that great, does that mean all other reviews were victims of hype and it shouldn't be GOTY? TLOU got a 6/10 at Quarter to Three, does that mean that's the score of the game and every other review is based purely on hype? What about GTAV? Escapist gave it a 7/10, so I guess it's a 7/10 game, hardly GOTY worthy. Sorry, but like I said, none of your comments have any basis in reality. Getting a single low score from a website now means absolutely nothing, and this wasn't even from a website really, since it wasn't the official score. It's still a highly praised and scored game, nothing will change that, no matter how much you wish it would.

And again, apparently you know all the rapist and pedophiles in the world. Your logic, not mine. How can you really say you hate them if you don't know any?

Nothing's changed. McShae's score is a second review (they mentioned this). The score of 9 by Van Ord still stands.

The voice of reason.

I do think the game is overrated by hype, and I would score the game at 6. The quality is there, but it gets boring quite fast.

@Cyberdot: I'm replaying it for the 4th time now and i'm not bored,strange...

im sorry but a 4 is for a game thats a broken heap of a mess. not for something you didint like.

#248 Posted by DocSanchez (1639 posts) -

@finalfantasy94: Exactly the point. Putting a game you personally didn't like in the same territory as Big Rigs, considering the effort put in to it and the graphics alone, is laughable. It's what anonymous unpaid people do when rating games. It doesn't achieve anything other than make you look stupid.

I mean, I don't love sports games in general. Everyone I know is obsessed with FIFA but it's not for me. Am I going to review it a 4? Nah. Because I know the effort it had and the achievement it is. Not to mention the fact that for fans of the sports games, it's right up there in quality.

Giving it a 4 would be the actions of a fanboy not a paid journalist. O Shea just isn't credible enough.

So by the logic of your own post, since you cannot hate someone you don't know, and you hate rapists and pedophiles, you are acquainted with every rapist and pedophile on the planet? I really think you may want to calm down and think about your posts a bit.

Also if you don't hate me, then why did you call me out specifically instead of issuing a blanketing statement to all fans of the game? I think it's pretty clear to any outside observer that you dislike me at the very least. Or is it that you secretly love me and are having difficulty expressing your emotions?

Nice damage controll but we ALL know how on gamespot gamespots scores matter only.Its mod approved. So fine, lets take the 4 score and the 9 score /2 = 6.5. Still a pretty shitty score but about right. I'd give it a 6.5 tbh. Slightly above avrage becasue the first 1/3 of the game was pretty good before it all went to shit.

As far as the rapist and pedophiles.Not gonna bother explain it again.. I can tell bad wording if all you have against me now. LOL :D nitpick all day, you know very well what I mean.

Seems Mcshea didnt liked the game

Wait...isn't McShea's review in this instance just a user review like anyone of us could make? It's just him giving his opinion on the game as an user/fan, not as a reviewer, since the main page for Bioshock Infinite still show's the 9.0 review score. Why is everybody so worried again...? :/

Some people still aren't understanding the new "second opinion" system is GS is starting to use. With big name/heavily hyped games, they're going to be doing second, unofficial reviews, from other staff members. The original review is still the official one, the one that shows on the main page, and the one that represents GS on Metacritic, and so on.
