VIDEO GAME REVIEW: Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 1 - Take 2 Interactive

Release Date: 12/11/13
Publisher:  Take 2 Interactive


Burial at Sea - Episode 1 is the first part of the story-driven downloadable content of BioShock Infinite, which was released on November 12th. This DLC puts the player in the perspective of Booker DeWitt in a new story, taking place in the city of Rapture right before its fall.


Having loved playing Bioshock Infinite I couldn’t wait for the chance to return to spend time with Booker and Elizabeth so when this outing became available, with these two characters as well as returning to a familiar Rapture setting, I couldn’t wait to embark.

Whilst this follows its own plotline, please be aware that whilst you can play it without having played the full game first, this add on with have spoilers, so I urge you make sure you’ve finished the original first otherwise you may have elements spoilt. What this title does is bring the edgy horror elements into an enclosed environment which, as a player will find you sneaking round corners hoping to get the jump on villains as ammo is in short supply so a quick melee attack can be a lifesaver.

Its lots of fun, has great twists and of course with the storyline taking the reader on a great journey, this addition will keep you playing for a couple of hours leaving the reader not only on the hook but demanding the second part when the cliff-hanger ending finishes playing. Great stuff.
