, the third installment in what is now the BioShock
series, sees the return of Ken Levine to the helm. Along with one or two others, Levine is arguably the closest thing the video games industry has to an auteur. With metascores of 96 on both PC and Xbox 360, BioShock
is held up as the pinnacle of the current gen, and so it was inevitable, given Levine's return, that expectations for Infinite
would be sky high. It's fitting, then, that a city in the sky is the backdrop for the game's snaking narrative. Gizmag took a rocket ship to Columbia to find out if BioShock Infinite
could possibly live up to the highest of expectations.
