    I never really liked any thing that came from the unreal engine although i did enjoy the 1st for the story how ever i thought the 2nd was a major let down story wise and still being on the unreal engine i found the game boring and limited.

    Now this 3rd one i can say i feel about the same as you do if not worse.

    Their reviews mean some thing lol ?.. Half of them at least will rate shit as edible and enjoyable at the same time. And if you want any kind of idea you would have to read each review and see why they say what they do..

    Looks like some one did not pay Joystiq.

    can't wait to get this game but I need to beat Crysis 3 and Tomb raider first. Sounds like the PC version is definitely the one to get for this game.

    Playing it right now, bought the copy off CJs CD Keys for $40 AUD mainly because I couldn't justify paying the $80 AUD price tag.

    Gameplay is awesome, graphics awesome and the story is top notch so far.

    I decided to pick it up since GMG had it for $60 with 3 free games, then you get another one free since it's a Steam key. So thats 5 games for $60, plus the bonus content. But then on top of that you can get $15 GMG credit or $14 cash back, I took the $14 cash back, so $46 for it all, and I most likely will just sell all those keys and recoup some more money. Not bad at all.

    GMG deals I think for the most part are global.

    I get 30-50 FPS with DDOF, and 40-70 without. Someone needs to make a side-by-side comparison video, since this is more of an artstyle thing than a simple graphics bump.

    The DL is taking forever. How is it that a game that is only 14.9GB has already downloaded 18.1GB and still has another 2GB to go?! :laugh: Crazy.

    Got this one free with a 7970 purchase. Played it about fifteen minutes before bedtime...rather strange storyline, but the graphics are beautiful.

    You now there is hardest difficulty? It's the 1999 mode. Here's what Joystiq.com has to say:

    By default, Infinite only has three available difficulty settings: Easy, medium and hard, with the 1999 Mode – which tunes Irrational's latest game to a difficulty best suited for those looking for a classic shooter experience akin to System Shock 2's campaign – hidden away until the game is complete.

    If players decide they want an immediate challenge, using the Konami code will allow them to unlock it at any point.

    On PC (with keyboardmouse): Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, (Cancel key), (Confirm key)

    The story is really movie quality in my opinion. Once you're in-game with Elizabeth you'll immediately become immersed into the story line since she'll accompany you through most of the way in the flying city. She was like a real person, she'll interact with you without any repeated dialogues and also react to the environment fluidly which absorbed me into the story even more when events were triggered and while the story unraveled. The plot was great I can only compare it to mind fcuk movies like inception and the matrix. It definitely breaks away from the cliche.

    Thanks, I'll try that on my second playthrough when I get the time, but I think it's already unlocked for me now that I've finished the game.

    Overhyped? Bioshock Infinite is one of the least hyped games so far this year.

    You already beat the game? jesussssss
