IGN’s released their review of BioShock Infinite and the verdict is an incredibly positive 9.4. Because of course. While everyone else is going to have to wait an extra few days to tell the world how awe-inspiring and revolutionary the game is, IGN gets to tell you now, leading the Metacritic rush.
After IGN spent a number of days teasing us about us about their catch, 2K’s massive press tour now seems incredibly justified. I’ve been trying to avoid as much in-game content as possible, but I’ve been consuming Ken Levine’s presentations and Q&As almost as often as they’ve been available. It’s been five and a half years since Irrational Studios’ last game, the original BioShock, debuted to commercial and critical acclaim. This is all despite the fact that it flew with some pretty heavy themes of objectivity and transcendentalism.
Admittedly, I wasn’t terribly excited when 2K unveiled the game in 2010. Levine and his studio are a gang of incredibly talented people and to hear they were toiling away for years to come on another BioShock seemed like a tragic waste of precious resources. Of course, in this case, I don’t mind being proven wrong. BioShock Infinite releases on March 26th, but you still have a good chance to get in on some pre-order bonuses. Look for the FleshEatingZipper review next week.
