Control Command Escape Reviews BioShock Infinite
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of BioShock Infinite, the soon to be released Mac version of Irrational Games' epic shooter. Brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media, BioShock Infinite introduces an "entirely new narrative experience that lifts players out of the familiar confines of Rapture and rockets them to Columbia, an immense city in the sky."

Special attention must be given to Elizabeth, who serves as your companion for the majority of the game. She has been supremely well-realised, both in terms of her animation (where she’ll saunter about the place, scamper off ahead of you, and stop to investigate paintings and so on), how she reacts to things that happen in the game, and how she actively helps you out without managing to get in the way. The first of those is probably the most striking whilst you play, and it becomes something of a joy to just pay attention to what you do. But where the developers really deserve credit is in resisting the temptation to make her a “girl with a gun”. Elizabeth abhors violence, and her assistance to you is merely in spotting points of interest, and scavenging and providing you with support. During a heated battle, she might yell that she’s found something, and throw you some ammunition or something to replenish your health or salt levels. Outside of combat, she’ll frequently throw you a coin she’s found somewhere (which happens too frequently for my liking) or spot a lockpick (which you can have her use to pick locks for you when you find them).
