• With over 88 awards to date, BioShock Infinite brings a new standard of video-game storytelling to the Mac App Store! •
BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

Fix for the download problem where it says "an error has occurred"
For everybody who's having a problem with downloading the game, where it stops downloading and says "an error has occurred", it's because your computer itself (not just the display!) is going to sleep in the middle of the download. The computer severs connections with any internet sources and ceases most of its internal operations. Thus, the download is stopped. This doesn't happen with most other games because usually, they're small enough files to download before the computer goes to sleep.
To fix this problem, set your energy saver preferences such that the computer does not go to sleep. (It's okay if the display goes to sleep; it doesn't change anything!) Then, quit the App store application, and reopen it. It should come up with the "featured" category showing. Don't switch categories; it'll only screw it up. In the search bar, search for "Bioshock Infinite" or whatever game with which this problem is occurring. Then, click "download". It will immediately resume the download, with your download progress saved. (It worked like that for me). If you're using a laptop, be sure to plug it in to charge before downloading. This game takes a massive amount of time to download, and if the computer dies mid-download, the progress may or may not be saved.
The story will leave you thinking for days
I had played the first two bioshock games and were very impressed with the level of detail, story and overall thematic narrative. I came into thinking that this would be a great departure from the grim scenes of Rapture from Bioshock 1 and 2. Bioshock Infinite doesn’t disappoint in this realm as you dive deeper into the story and discover the twisted nature of the characters. Visually inspiring you will just stop and look around at all of the detail put into such a fabulous game before taking your next step. I’m in the second playthrough now just to pick up on more of the subtleties of the story that you start to piece together at the end. If you enjoyed games like “The Room” and old puzzle classics like “Myst” but have since grown to appreciate more action oriented FPS titles, this blends the two fantastically. Runs great on my 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina from 2012. No download problems, and to those that are having download problems, go into your settings and disable the hard drive (not the screen) from going to sleep while it downloads.
It would have been nice if they mentioned that I had to go buy a two button mouse to work the game on a new iMac, assume true on any macbooks as well. The Mac single button mouse wil not work, I even went into mouse controls and activated the second click thingy…..nothing….. Nice game, first one I spent the money and bought. It just reinforced my thoughts…if you want to play games, the nice ones anyway, buy a gaming box. Very difficult to use a mouse and keyboard with all the action, the nature of playing a complicated game on a computer i guess. I’m going to go buy an Xbox one or PS and try the game the way it should be played. Also, if you look around there is a way to hook up a game controller to a Mac, but after reading some of the horror stories….not gonna do it. Hung up a couple of times forcing a hard reboot by pulling the wall plug….ouch, no game is worth the potential of damaging a $3k machine. No game.
As far as the game goes, nice job guys, beautiful, nice story line and fun even at the easy learning level.
