Looks like it's using the same engine as B 1. Darn.

I would love to see Rapture in the Crytek engine; a truly disgusting and foreboding environment.

No. **** graphics. It should ALWAYS be about gameplay.

The Unreal Engine 3 is more than enough for now, in graphics terms and is still perfect for this game. Just look at Half-Life 2. It did way better than the graphics ###### that was Crysis.

It isnt about graphics people; Its about gameplay and there were Bioshock (with its story as well) brings it.


Sad we have to wait until 2012....The game is problably done but they still have to do the great story behind it.

BTW, I just saw the 10 minute gameplay...............My thoughts:

Holy ****.

I'm going to wait for the reviews to come in on this. They're going to have to have a seriously excellent bad guy to top Andrew Ryan and his 100% buy in to Ayn Rand's philosophy. I might work, but I'll let someone else plunk down $60 on it (and wait for it to drop to $30 like everything else does within 3 months of release).

Excited for this and am having to really temper my pre-order itch. Good thing is the game will be out for a good week before my wife goes on vacation with friends so I'll wait until then.

If its even as good as BioShock I will be a happy camper.

IGN had an exclusive review it looks like, Gave it a 9.4.

I actually have the retail disk version pre-ordered from Amazon, which means I have to wait until it actually arrives to get the key and load the game.
I may be in a very little minority here, but I prefer having the box when possible. Just makes it seem more substantial, if that makes any sense.

Got it too. Too bad it doesn't contain all the pre-purchase bonuses from steam.

I was 100% in that camp up until last year but now I just download them to save physical space.

It's annoying having the keys (e-mail usually), games (Steam, Origin, Uplay, ISO if from CD key website) etc. in different places, though.

That is one reason I try to stick to the larger places for digital, as at least they should be tied to your accounts once you enter them.
That just made me think of a few nightmare scenarios though actually, so yeah, there are positives and negatives for both I suppose.

A lot has to do with I know longer stay up for midnight releases, etc. If all this digital distribution was around like it is now when I first was gaming on my PC, besides the fact internet was much slower, but if that was like it was these days too, I would probably be much more inclined to go all digital, as I would still play into the wee hours of the morning. But the day Bioshock is released, I will be at work, actually am not getting home until later then usual, which really I will not have it delivered to me before then anyway, so I will probably have just enough time to download it, and maybe check it out for an hour before I have to go to sleep again and do it all over. It sucks getting older and wanting to still be a gamer. But I try to make it work. I should have Infinite finished by end of April hopefully, while others will beat it the same day. Some games I really try to make an effort though, and this is one of them.

If you want to play earlier on PC, then move to AU/NZ... or just get a VPN from there. Game unlocks in three more hours over there.

And after seeing the price of the game in Australia, better just get the VPN. Don't move to there :)

Review Embargo has lifted. Almost all the reviews I've seen so far are perfect scores or close to it. Polygon has a good review (video review included). Finally a game that deserves the hype (Y)

Wow, pretty stellar reviews across the board!

Tomb Raider + Bioshock Infinite is probably the best set of free games I will EVER receive with a video card purchase.

I just want to play 1999 mode from the start and not have to finish the game to unlock that mode because I fear it will be a console shooter on my PC. Throw lots of things at me to shoot at because I want a challenge. I was happy with the "drill specialist" in Bioshock 2 because I was already just using the drill and plasmids because the guns made the game too easy.

I just played the first 15 minutes. At this moment i feel a little bad for buying this. They were touting the immersive world, even in the review. What you get is an old engine with characters that move like plastic dolls. Hexagonal balloons and beds of flowers that date from the year 2000. This is on max setting. The NPCs in the world don't seem to be aware of the player. Certain triggers start a 2 line conversation or sometimes a character tracks you with his plastic head. Immersion feels far gone. It might all be about the gameplay but this plastic feeling kills it for me.

I was waiting for this game but after playing it for 20 minutes i felt like watching some TV. Maybe it gets more immersive later on. I'll give it another try tomorrow. Just my 2 cents.
