Trivia

In Part Two, while the player is in a school, a wall of portraits with all the important people in Rapture can be seen with each person's name under their portrait. One of the portraits though is scratched beyond recognition, and only the first letter of their first name is visible: an S. This is likely a potshot towards BioShock 2 whose antagonist, Sofia Lamb, caused some contradictions to the series' previously established continuity. See more »

Atlas: [reading "the ace in the hole"] What's this? I-It's just a bunch of gibberish! What does this say, you whore? What does it say?
Elizabeth: It says: "Would you kindly".
Atlas: [smiling] We've got the activation phrase, now all we've got to do is get that genetic freak of nature on an airplane, and Rapture's ours.

Probably not for the casual fan
16 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Burial at Sea" isn't so much a DLC for "Infinite" as it is for the original "Bioshock". I have to give the story credit, it addresses both games, and ties things up nicely in the end, but you're missing a lot here if you've never played the original. That'd be me, which is my own fault, but then again, one can't be blamed for thinking that, with the presence of Booker and Elizabeth, this would be an Infinite-centric installment.

Putting that aside, the real magic is in Part II. The pacing is far better than the hurried first part, and it's focused on stealth instead of guns and chaos. A novel twist, in and of itself. And it also proves that Elizabeth is one of the finest video game characters, and it's a treat to play as her instead of Booker for a stretch.

It's a good game, and worthy of the series' production values (and I loved exploring Rapture), but this feels like "Bioshock" fan service more than anything else. And in that respect, I was out of the loop.

6/10
