Storyline

The year is 1912, deep in debt, ex-Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt is sent to the mysterious flying city of Columbia to find and retrieve a young woman imprisoned in a tower since birth - Elizabeth and to "Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt". However, almost as soon as Booker arrives, he finds that Columbia and its people are not quite what they seem, and all too soon science, religion, morality, family and life all clash and spiral down into utter chaos, with Booker and Elizabeth as unlikely partners in the midst of all the action.

An amazing storyline that keeps you hanging on to the ending long after you have finished it.
5 May 2014 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Visuals: 10/10 Amazing and eye watering, not because it's so bright and shiny, cos it's so damn beautiful. The day's so bright, that if it were the same outside your house right now, you would most definitely SEE the daylight! Attention to details is also impressive. The reflection of various objects can be seen in the water, which also looks B-E-A-UTIFUL! The ocean has this dark blue hue which gives you the right impression of a stormy and grim scene. But up in the floating city of Columbia, the water just reflects the beautiful sky blue which makes it so mesmerizing to just stare at it for all day long. The deep red hue of blood from whenever you bleed is almost realistic, but however the blood doesn't look as realistic as it does on your enemies. Animation: 8/10 Pretty good, the animations are almost realistic, how the enemies get shot at and how the automaton reacts when it gets electrocuted, your hand movement when you use the crank gun. Elizabeth's facial expressions are also pretty realistic, plus it puts all of her emotions into you, makes you feel like you're actually in the game (not just playing it). The sky rail riding is all just simply great. Audio: 9/10 The voices of characters are great. Troy Baker does a wonderful job with the protagonist, Booker Dewitt's voice and Courtney Draper's voicing for Elizabeth is so sweet, it almost lulls you into falling in love with her(Elizabeth, but Courtney's not bad too.) Also, the sounds of the engines and machines and automatons and gunshots are pretty realistic. Music: 9/10 This game is one of the few games like Skyrim which have a brilliant and sweet Soundtrack that makes me listen to it in my own leisure. Even though I am pretty critical at music in games, i feel i can't complain at all. However, sometimes the music isn't dramatic when it needs to be like in certain combat situations unlike games like Skyrim and the Arkham Series. Gameplay: 9/10 Although First Person Action games give me a bit of a headache because of the way the camera moves when you get bumped over, this game was pretty nice to play. Barely any usability of stealth in this game. Combat is better than other Bioshocks as you can carry two guns of any type now, not just one big and one small. Also the sky-line attack is pretty cool! And when you're low on ammo, health or salts, Elizabeth will provide you with your needs during combat. You can have Elizabeth bring in some objects to help you fight from other alternate universes using tears(a magical portal to another universe) but only in set places, and only one at a time. This is really helpful. Although, i have to admit, I wasn't impressed with the different vigors. Dishonored had better magic. However some of them get better and are really Awesome when you upgrade it. Storyline: 10/10 The best part of this game. Total gameplay time is pretty short, but don't get me wrong, the story is really Interesting and Deep. But if you're the guy who just wants to finish the game and get it over with, you wouldn't be able to get all the tiny Easter egg audio files which let you in on the history and certain truths of the city, which is pretty vital for you to understand the ending. The ending, however, makes you think. With all the possibilities of various and innumerable alternate realities, it makes you wonder about alternate endings, sadly this is no Mass Effect type of storyline pattern, but is still amazing, as you can draw your own conclusions from it, like "American Psycho"'s or "Shining"'s ending. It makes you think about what could have happened or done to prevent all the wrong, what life would have been for our guilty and sad protagonist's life if he didn't do that one thing that made his life miserable and full of remorse. Also pay attention to every detail in the game, not just because it's beautiful, but because it's really important to understand the storyline, Right from the Beginning! Characters: 10/10 But Booker Dewitt is also an interesting character. He is a sad, grim and the kind of guy that would even lie to you to get his job done, but how his nature changes as the game goes on and how his bond with Elizabeth changes as well is pretty interesting. Elizabeth is also an amazing character, possibly the best in the game. She is full of emotion and filled with a sense of innocence. She is also really caring, loving and curious. She is also pretty skilled with abilities like lock picking and opening up tears. Zachary Hale Comstock is also the type of character that makes you so angry for what he has done. Yet, one will definitely feel blown away when they discover the truth about him in he ending. Other characters like Daisy Fitzroy and Fink are pretty interesting as they tell you about the backstory of the wonderful city of Columbia. The twins are also a pleasant surprise with their various nuances that stumble onto you in the game. Also they're dialogues are pretty important for the storyline and their sudden appearances and disappearances are pretty creepy at times. Old Elizabeth is also something dreadful, that is, when you visit the future of an ugly alternate universe, or who knows, all the universes may lead to the same ending. You feel sorry for her, and i guess she is right "Time rots hope." That's why Booker has to go back to the past and make the change to prevent it, but will he ever be able prevent it, or worse, even if he does, will it lead to a happy ending?
