    Obviously a paid review.

    Watched a bit of the game in a stream from /v/ (The game got leaked in PS3/Xbox 360 since a week ago). Looks somehow okay except for the disgusting HUD & its yellow piss shield as well as the ending/plot which is pants in the head retarded from what I've heard.

    Still waiting to pirate it too.

    Does it work correctly? I heard there were common issues such as saving games, on other torrents.

    Are you mocking me? You know I haven't played it yet.

    Ask PerpA, that nerd asked his daddy if he could start playing at launch midnight.

    Probably if you wait for the GotY 2013 (with all DLCs) to come out with a -75% sale. Otherwise, just pirate it and judge by yourself.

    I pirated it (through the torrent link in this thread, thanks KoalaRimjob btw), and these are my impressions on this game:

    -The aethetics and soundtrack are amazing, as I definitively liked the introduction of the floating island, but that's all I can really praise about.
    -The AI is dumb as a bag of potatoes (they either stand still or rush at you, but never cover behind something). Enemies are too predictable.
    -Weapons and vigors/plasmids are just reskinned things from the first Bioshock, though some vigors feel a bit different, but I personally only used the crows and the shock one.
    -Money is barely useful as the upgrades are completely worthless (because of the 2 weapon limit), and you clearly don't need to buy vigors since you will all get them for free anyway.
    -1999 mode is basically taking more damage + enemies sucking more bullets on their faces + spending 100 silver coins per death (or you have to come back to the auto-save point otherwise).
    -Elizabeth is just a refill machine (with an anime/Dreamworks face) that can move. She often gives you ammunition, health, salt and money too.
    -The storyline went good at the beginning, but got downhill the further I played the game, because of its plot devices.

    I didn't completely finished the game (I'm probably at the second part of the game), but so far, it doesn't deserve the perfect 10/10 score that the medias are claiming it. Bioshock Infinite is more a generic FPS with amazing aethetics but with a clusterfuck plot.

    I have that strange feeling the original Infinite, from the demo videos, seemed a whole damn better than the current one. Especially in terms of gameplay & story (even if the latter was probably simple but at least understandeable).

    ^ this its a miss in my book, Loved bioshock 1 and 2 because of the moral choices but that's all gone in this game because your choices make fuck all difference.

    Allright but fuck as hell repetitive.

    Sounds like another game from late last year....

    Yeah, the Gamestop where I live has glorified the fuck out of this game. Bioshock Infinity posters fucking everywhere.
    Cover looks dumb as shit. Nothing like a generic dude with a gun to get me riled up about a game that's supposed to be unique or some shit.

    If you like a dumbed down gameplay (a lot of content were cut), with a piss poor pacing and artificial difficulty, alongside of a schizophrenic plot that absolutely makes no sense at all, then sure go ahead.

    The whole game absolutely feels rushed for something that they have worked for 5 years (They probably changed a lot of things at the last minute). 4.5/10 game at best.

    I don't know man, I have seen the Let's Plays and the game looks very fleshed out. And beautifully done. I almost feel like I could be in that world myself. A lot of attention was put into social conflicts, various Propaganda, and consequence for doing whatever the fuck you wanted.
    The only thing that really put me off at first is the cover of the game. I'm not saying I have an issue with the controlled character, but I can see why fans would be upset. It's just so fucking generic. Nothing about that cover even hints at the gold mine that is inside that game. Show that cover to someone who has never heard of Bioshock and the first thing they will think this game is about is some steampunk though guy shooting American things in big explosions.

    I can understand the point of view of people who just want to play a game a don't give a fuck about the story, but in this case I would not recommend you to get/pirate this game if you're one of those people because the magic of this game is the story and the world of Columbia yeah is like a pixar movie with tons of blood but really for a videogame it has a very enjoyable story.
    Also you want to play this game on hard because medium and easy modes are really bullshit you don't enjoy the game as you were supposed one tip for beating this game is that playing safe in most scenarios would get you fucked because this shit is bioflank infinite you're going to get flanked a lot of times so being aggressive is the best strategy. Like I said before is not the greatest game of the generation but its an excellent game for example Elizabeth is an excellent companion I think maybe because the faggot of Levine build the game around her, so its not the annoying bullshit dumb AI who represents a burden while she is tagging along like in many other games, so in that part yeah they put a referent and raised the bar higher also her facial expressions are funny as hell.
