Performance and Final Thoughts
This review was done on a PC, ‘i5 760; GTX 560; 4GB DDR3’, with an average of 30-40 fps at medium settings which isn’t alarming as recent games have been quite tasking for PC. BioShock Infinite uses a DirectX 11-enabled, modified version of Unreal Engine 3, hence we got a good PC Port. However, there are certain areas where the fps drop is very significant, 10-20 even, usually when moving from an indoor location to an outdoor one. Players have complained that the fps tanks from 200 to 50 in certain areas of the game, on Titan SLI, which is quite alarming. There are a multitude of graphics tweaks present in the game and enables you to immmerse yourself in the amazing city of Columbia.
Bioshock Infinite is a breath of fresh air for Story driven games, which gamers have been asking for the past couple of years. What you get from this game is a story which is intense, smart and will make you question everything at the end of it. The story itself offers a chance of re-playability and you can play again in ‘1999’ mode which brings forth tougher enemies, low resources and significantly increases the challenge of the game. On the down side the lack of interesting weapons, annoying boss fights and an above average Combat may take away some of it’s charm but this game is wonderful. With several DLCs on the way, Columbia has more stories to tell and we can only hope for an even better job well done.Irrational had the vision and potential to do more and for reasons behest to them they did not follow through with it, the game will be talked about for months to come for reasons good and bad, but one thing is certain Bioshock Infinite is one of the best told stories of this generation and will challenge new game designers to come up with something better and original.
- Amazing Story.
- Breathtaking Enviornments.
- Interesting Characters.
- Weapons and their upgrades are half decent.
- Combat is a drag in the middle and often forced.
