  1. 1. With hard hitting action, remarkable characters and a striking setting. BioShock Infinite took the media by storm hitting both the storyline and gameplay on the head.This detailed review done by ‘Elliot’s Reviews’ gives you a great understanding into the important and gripping aspects of the game without giving you too much information or spoilers. Elliot is new on the scene with this being his first review but that doesn’t stop him from being up with other competitors such as The Angry Joe Show. He has a great first grasp on the concept of reviews but does lack in quality, particularly audio. When the review first begins, it opens up into a peaceful elevator scene, giving you some story and quotes from the game. Once Elliot begins the mic is much distorted and if you’re a headphone user, probably bringing you a headache! After the first clip this is fixed, but this should be something he looked back on. I can’t fault his use of gameplay footage as it is always a perfect example of what he is talking about. He does however not talk about quite a few things such as ‘Firemen’, all of the weapons, all the vigors and characters such as Yin. Though you didn’t feel as Release Date of BioShock Infinite: March 26, 2013
  2. 2. though his review was lacking. From playing the game you can pick up on these things that members of the audience which haven’t played the game would have missed but maybe want to know about. He does a very good job at cutting through different aspects of the game, so the script is very thought out and a lot of planning has been involved. He loses points against competitors such as The Angry Joe Show with his quality in audio and video, but also humour value, but this is personal opinion. You may want a more straight forward review, getting to the point, which is what this will be. Video games review are different than reviews about music albums because they include more information about how it will play out and if you will enjoy it. An album is all personal preference as to if you will enjoy it or not, no one has the exact same music taste. I enjoy listening to metal, but on days can find myself listening to drum and bass. People have their preferences on video games genres too, but everyone knows if it’s a bad game. When reviewing an album you will look into it in depth, such as the lyrics, artwork, how it all connects together, what the band did for inspiration. With a video game review on such a big game such as BioShock by such a big company as 2K Games, they’re such a big team it is not so much on a personal level what is put into the game, but again, you can find yourself connecting with characters that other people won’t. The audience can completely disagree with both music and video game reviews so Elliot has tried to be very un-biased in the review, he has his personal opinion thrown in but mostly just gives facts of the game that you can’t disagree with. With some albums having parental advisory stickers on the front meaning that the album contains hurtful language Bioshock is age rated 18 for its violence and language. This may discourage some parents from buying the CD/Game for their children but that’s down to what they think and that is why these reviews are good is because it lets the parents know what their child will expect. I believe If you’re thinking of picking up BioShock: Infinite you should watch this review by ‘Elliot’s Reviews’ first as it gives you great, non-biased argument about different aspects
  3. 3. of the newly released game.
