Geoff’s been very excited about Bioshock Infinite for a while now but the delays and bad news trickling out of Irrational Games has started to worry even him and I have to admit that this later trailer doesn’t completely reassure me.
Yes it looks like a lot of fun and the sound track is awesome for the trailer but the reason Bioshock 1 was so epic was simply the story behind the game. The gameplay itself I found to be a bit frustrating but acceptable because the story was just so very good.
Similar in a way to Spec Ops: The Line which also had clunky controls but a brilliant story.
What worries me about Bioshock Infinite is that some of the creative minds behind the original game have left and a trailer showcasing in game footage of you jumping, shooting and flying doesn’t make me think that the story is the most important aspect of the game.
I’d rather see a moody, immersive trailer showcasing an indepth story filled with emotion rather than a run and gun.
Am I alone? Are you still just as excited for this title?
