    It's not that good of a game; those scores are all hype. The combat as an example is completely broken - which isn't great for a combat heavy FPS...

    Maybe the scores are hype. Then Epic really needs to hire better marketing people.
    Or they simply have to put more effort into game developing, not just for making Xbox gamer happy.
    As for Infinite, yeah the combat is not that good, the system is not fully working and level design (the combat part) could do much more than just spawning groups of enemies on the path, but the presentation and the storyline are good enough to make it a nice single player experience. One of the best SP I played in these years.
    Of course that's just my opinion.

    It IS a bit telling that Mark Rein goes on vacation on Hawaii after releasing a techdemovideo wheres other gamedevelopers usually does that after a game release.

    I didnt even see any Dice devs go to vacation after they released that amazing 17min SP video on the actual game BF4 ;)

    May be the combat sucks , may be the reviewers never played Unreal.

    When I first played Unreal back in '98 I would have easily given it a 10. the best game ever. Today not so much.

    B.I. does lack in graphics and combat and I would rate it 89/91 in that department. However the overall production content,art, story,etc is a 9.5.:catfight:

    That would be awesome, wouldn't it?

    Yeah, BioShock: Infinite's gameplay is not amazing. It is serviceable however and I wouldn't call it completely broken.

    The high score comes mostly from the art direction and the story. You can easily figure 10 points of any review for the game can be attributed to the story and clever references dropped throughout the game.

    It deserves high scores for what it does, though how high is simply a matter of opinion.
