Fair 70%

Looks beautiful, sounds great, Elizabeth is an amazing character and the story keeps you hooked. I'm sure I would've enjoyed it a lot more if it didn't seem like such a dumbed down version of the earlier entries.

Strong art design
Great concept
Story will keep you hooked
Memorable albeit inconsistent twist ending

Elizabeth is a great and fleshed out character

Decent game with tight controls and great writing. Some of the game's aspects could have been more developed, like Daisy Fitzroy for example, and the ending felt very tacked on, as if they thought 'oh shit this is a BoShock game, it needs a killer twist ending!' at the last minute. Otherwise, apart from its uninspired mechanics, it's a good game and definitely worth your time.

Average 60%

Subpar gameplay/level design, a story riddled with holes and paradoxes and characters and gameplay elements that are charming/fun but thoroughly unconvincing for the game's internal history. That said, the atmosphere and presentation are truly on another level, and the game does a decent job of exploring the themes it wants to explore, so I can't outright call it a bad game. A mediocre one, I can definitely call it though.

Positive points
Thematic elements
Presentation
Voice acting
Decently enjoyable combat
Negative points
Story/plot structure/inconsistency
Lack of internal consistency
Dumbed down gameplay
Level design
Unrealistic character development
Ill-fittingly grandiose dialogue

Good 90%

So the game starts out with you on a rowboat with this man and woman talking nonsense and arguing and blah blah but then you get dropped off at a lighthouse. The premise is creepy and I'm already in a world of mystery. I sit down in a chair, and then everything changes. I honestly don't know where to begin with this game. I would like to talk about the story, but at the same time I don't. Its pacing is perfect and the amount of detail to make the... Read More

Storyline

Indebted to the wrong people, with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and now hired gun, Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.
