You can nit pick any game, though. Even Crysis 3 isn't 100% consistent.

Like the flower hats that some of the women wear for instance, they're totally round with just a floral pattern on them.

yes, if the new Razer Edge tablet can run it on high(albeit not at 1920x1080 w/ progressive scan) then...yeah

yep yep I am. I just think its not worth a near 10/10 score

post #3408 of 4667

I would probably give Bioshock Infinite a 8.5 or 9 out of 10. The story and style are the main factors bringing the score that high for me, bad things are mostly just nitpicking.

 

Pros:

-The plot was amazing. I had to play the last 6 hours without break.

-Great environment and great lighting.

-Music covers were a nice touch

-Great dialogue

-Dying actually has a penalty now

-Fun gameplay, flying around enemies on the skylines can be really fun.

 

Meh:
-2 Weapon limit(I much prefer this over Bioshock 2's "carry a schiitload of weapons but clumsily switch to the wrong one all the ****ing time in battle beause they removed the ****ing weapon wheel for PC players" style, but Bioshock 1's weapon wheel style would be preferred)

-Guns were OK but nothing too interesting

 

Cons:

-Poor optimization for Nvidia cards

-They scrapped 3D sound as far as I can tell. It's not the norm for a game nowadays to have this but it's a shame to see it leave on a series that once had it.

-Upgrading guns doesn't change how they look

-Mouse controls were terrible for me, I had to use a controller(I'm guessing this will be patched, and yes I did try tweaking vsync, acceleration etc..)

I prefer to use a controller on my PC as a long-time console gamer. I guess I just haven't gotten Mouse+keyboard down yet...my fingers aren't coordinated enough or something lol.

As for Nvidia support, isn't the game better for you since it supports PhysX or whatever?

I'm running it pretty smoothly on a 7970 @1440p Max settings.

I agree; I normally use a controller for PC gaming unless I'm tanking on am MMO. Healing actually works wonders with a controller.  SO MANY HOTKEYS!!!! SO FAST!

I still prefer the first Bioshock. The game lost its originality with the 2nd sequel much like Crysis 2 and 3 turned into mud after Warhead.

post #3412 of 4667
Really? I think it just improved on their existing formula. Much like a good artist does in subsequent album releases. The series is original in and of itself.
post #3413 of 4667

Yeah really didn't dig it that much, storyline of the 2nd sequel was pretty good but it's the gameplay and the new introduced mechanics that got me a bit of errrrmm. I'd think most games lose the "plot" and "originality" after the first in the series. The first cods, bf, crysis, assassins creed, far cry, fable, bioshock, dead space, gears of war, mass effect etc are all easily better than there sequels. The only modern game sequel that I actually felt improved from the first was Borderlands 2.

Have you played Infinite yet DefQon? It doesn't exactly go the same route that Bioshock 2 did... BS2 was made by different developers and really pales in comparison IMO. I thought it was pretty boring but Infinite was extremely engaging. It wouldn't make sense to dismiss it just because of your experience with BS2, which Infinite has very little to do with.

Infinite doesn't use PhysX. Generally whatever logo you see before the game starts is what it's optimized for.

 

I like using a controller so I didn't mind the mouse controls being bad for me, but I don't see how anyone could use one multiplayer shooter(especially something like Counter Strike). You'd get slaughtered.

post #3415 of 4667
Why is the logo there then?



Also, yeah I don't play much FPS multiplayer on PC, but I can imagine I'd get crapped on with a controller.

Still playing Infinite but stopped because it got boring.

post #3417 of 4667

Man, beat system shock 2 again...forgot I had been playing a month or two ago; Better then Bioshock 1 and 2? yes, yes yes yes yes.

post #3418 of 4667

Now System Shock 2 definitely brings back memories, I remember playing that game back in 99 on a full blown Pentium 3 Tualatin rig along with Quake 3. Good memories, game was pretty scary for it's time.

Never saw that before, looks like it is indeed in it.

 

But it's apparantly a CPU version of it so your graphics card doesn't help out with it.

Well you must get bored easily biggrin.gif

 

At least you gave it a shot. I thought it was really good, especially the last half of it where stuff starts to get crazy.

I just read up a bit.

I don't know why that logo is even there. It seems that Physics caluclations are done in BI. But not on the GPU. They wanted to keep physicy stuff limited to not have as much effect on FPS(Bioshock Infinite is easy to run).

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/technology/physx/pc-games

The official Physx page also does not state that BI supports it.

Thus, i'm guessing it may be accidentially dropped in?
