Bioshock Infinite Mac Reviews: Game of the Year?

1 September 2013 739 views No Comment

 Whereas SimCity Mac generally crashed and burned at launch, Bioshock Infinite Mac was expected to great and, a few issues aside, has turned out to be great.

Expectations. Whereas SimCity Mac is unplayable for many, though not all, just like the PC version, Bioshock Infinite Mac was expected to great and, a few quibbles aside, has turned out to be great.

While it’s got its share of nagging problems, Bioshock Infinite still stands as one of the best games of this year, on Mac or any other platform — MacLife.

As a “game” BioShock Infinite is certainly excellent. Its linearity means I wouldn’t remove the crown from The Witcher 2, or Batman: Arkham City, but it’s most certainly up there on the podium with them. In terms of raw entertainment though, BioShock Infinite walks that fine line between cinema and video games, and is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences I’ve had from either medium — CommandControlEscape.

Now the story is fantastic, and I think it’s something that everyone that enjoys first-person shooters should experience… [T]he title looks amazing and if you have a higher-end Mac, this should definitely be on your list as one of the best games to play 2013 — The Slanted.

BioShock Infinite Mac is available on the Mac App Store ($39.99) and from Amazon ($38.72), where you can also buy the Columbia’s Finest and Clash in the Cloud expansions for $4.99 each.

To play Bioshock Infinite Mac you will need a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo Mac with 4GB RAM, 30GB free disk space and a Radeon HD 3870, GeForce 640M with 512MB or better graphics card.

Those with older Macs should consider getting Bioshock or Bioshock 2, which are available on the Mac App Store for 50 percent off.
