Bioshock Infinite is Ken Levine’s latest creation, and possibly his best creation to date. While it can suffer from some flat story-telling and combat at times, overall it is a well crafted adventure through another beautifully created world, full of detail, beauty and great action.
Gather round, ye children of God! Rest thy weary soul and listen as I tell you the tale of the glorious city of Columbia! These are My Opinions, and there shall be no spoilers!
“Listen, all this takes a lot of gettin’ use to. And you do get used to it, after a while.
There’s three things I’ll always miss though:
One, not havin’ to watch my step all the time.
Two… Ah, forget about two…
And three… I miss the songs…”
Bastion is beautiful. There’s no other word that can describe it so completely. From the story to the art design to the music, it is a creation of genius that most can only aspire to achieve. A watercolour fairytale told to your inner-child by a fireside grandfather. A tale of love, loss and war, of monsters in the dark and in our hearts.
Do yourself a favour: go and play Bastion right now. I can guarantee that you will not regret it, and I don’t want to ruin anything here before you’ve experienced it for yourself.
