Bioshock Infinite Review ( spoilers )

Ok let's get this out of the way. Is it a good game? Yes. Is it as amazing as everyone says it is? Heeeeellll nooooo.
So spoilers ahead duuurrrrr.
Anyway.
Graphically the game is not something special. But aesthetically? Hooooly damn do some of the places in the game look freaking amazing.
Seeing Columbia go from such a vivid beautiful place to such an end is amazing.
Gameplay wise the game does it's job. It's a fps and you go around and shoot stuff. I still hate the two weapon system and the upgrades being plain numbers instead of seeing changes on your guns. Guns also lack the personality they had in previous games. But it there is one thing this game doesn't know how to handle is the gawddamn pacing. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesh did some stretches of the game feel like a chore. You want to see the rest of the story but they just keep spawning whole clusters of enemies at you. It feels like gears of war and not something like Bioshock.
The ending. So it's like omg this is the best thing ever. Not really. So the twist is that ellie can see all the timelines, and brings you at this root of all represented by the Bioshock lighthouse and that she is actually booker's daugther which he gave to the time traveling twins to erase his debt and they gave it to comstock. In some universes booker stays booker. In some he accepts the baptism and becomes comstock. And ellie to get rid of comstock must kill booker at the point he'd turn into comstock. It's a simple sci-fi story that's probably rehashed a lot but not in a game way-
Now what's bad about this is that it absolves the game of any character development. Your choices don't matter. The characters don't matter. All that this is a series of people living every decision, every moment, every possibility, always. The things you've done, the game you played, does not matter. The outcome is the same. Which renders playing the game and the choices in it useless.
The game is good but calling it a masterpiece it's just stupid. Once you find out what actually happened the whole game just made me go meh.
Because nothing you do actually matters. It's just a result of someone fucking around with space time continuum.
Also that Rapture shoehorned in. That's stupid.

Good game but the ending just ruins it. At least for me.
7/10

Rent it out or buy it later on a sale, you are not missing out on some kind of masterpiece.

If you think Rapture was shoehorned in, you weren't playing attention.

what's the point of sending those two in the Rapture?

To illustrate the point that Columbia is Rapture.

No it's not XD
Those are two completely different entities.

They're the same thing, in separate universes. That's the entire point of the ending. Every universe has a constant that takes the form of: A man, a city and a lighthouse.

No the point of the ending is that there exists a infinite amount of Comstocks and that all Ellies in all of those make him die at the baptism at the end point which in return nullifies her being take in the first place and she is actually never taken to begin with which is represented by the after credit scene. Rapture is just there as a transition point to the lighthouse which is a symbolism of a multiple parallel universes existing and a drawback to the older games. That dialogue there is just to reference the basis on which the Bioshock games are set up.
