My latest game review for Denver Post’s Game on blog:
BioShock Infinite is escapism, world-building at its finest (review)
When developers announced that BioShock Infinite would no longer be in the underwater city of Rapture like the first two games, and that it would have a totally new story and new characters, some fans paused. And with good reason.
Rapture was the perfectly beautiful post-apocalyptic underwater city, and despite how in-depth the first two games were, fans wanted to continue exploring it. Instead, the team at Irrational Games has taken us to the clouds in the floating city of Columbia (not to be confused with South American country, Colombia) for BioShock Infinite.
You play as Booker DeWitt, a former detective down on his luck now headed up to Columbia in the year 1912 on a mission to pay a debt. The mission? Find a young woman named Elizabeth and bring her back to New York City. Sounds easy enough, right?
