Bioshock > Infinite > Bioshock 2


Bioshock had everything at its time. Great gameplay, awesome story, fantastic world. There was really nothing to complain about except the end boss.

Bioshock 2 took the gamplay even a small step farther while playing it safe, but it was obviously not as original and the story couldn't hold up. Still a very good game though. It also introduced multiplayer and had really good DLC.

Infinite had just like the first Bioshock an amazing story line and a beautiful crafted world, though I personally preferred the atmosphere of Rapture. That seemed much more mysterious. The enemies in Infinite were sadly not as interesting as I hoped them to be and the Vigors weren't as important as the Plasmids in Bishock IMO. The gunplay is decent but hasn't evolved one bit.
IMO it's a bit sad that the choices you make in the game have no impact for the ending and almost no impact during the game.
Elizabeth is a great companion and a very useful addition to the game. Sky-Line riding also works as well as the videos made it seem.
Only thing I really hated was (again) a certain boss.


Which boss, and why?

 

OT: I think that Infinite barely edges out 1. Unlike many here I actually prefer the atmosphere in Infinite. Some of the gear and Vigors in Infinite made the game too easy in my opinion, but the game for me was all about the story and atmosphere.

Does the final game have any of this kind of interaction?


It has some (e.g., Elizabeth interacting with and commenting on the environment, occasional opportunities to decide how to act, instances where there are more than one approach to a situation, etc.), but not to the degree that was shown in the demo.  Don't get me the wrong, the game is great, from the atmosphere, characters, storytelling, and so on, it just didn't meet the expectations that I set for myself as someone who had watched that demo prior to release.  In retrospect, I should have put a disclaimer while I posted that video advising people not to watch it if you haven't played the game yet (in order to not inflate expectations).

Battling Lady Comstock's ghost 3 times within an hour. That was really  cheap and honestly  didn't expect such a flaw in such a high quality game.

I knew it would be that. Most of my friends complain from the same thing. I struggled at first, but I found a huge weakness. What I did was use Return to Sender and absorb a good amount of bullets then shoot directly at her ignoring everyone around her. The only flaw in the plan was that you run out of salts, but Elizabeth deals with that issue by giving some to you every once in a while. Every hit dealt a very noticeable amount of damage. I played on hard and managed to beat her only dying once (the first time). I kind of agree though it was somewhat cheap and annoying.
