BioShock Infinite Review

BioShock Infinite 01

How do you challenge yourself to create a near perfect game?

In 2007, Ken Levine and Irrational Games were given near perfect praise for their game BioShock. The setting of the underwater city of Rapture and its inhabitants told a perfect tale of a man-made dystopia that showed the evil (virtual) man was capable of given powers that would pollute their mind. Even more, it showed that video games could also be considered on such a level as books and movies in the terms of modern storytelling. So when their latest game, BioShock Infinite, was released expectations were primarily high.

Inversion Review

It’s often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that is the case, I don’t quite understand what happened with Inversion. It almost seems as if the designers wanted to take some of the best parts of certain games and put them together. But as unfortunately I’ve learned, that doesn’t necessarily equal a good game.
