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.

What's New in Version 1.3.2
Minor bug fixes
Astonishingly More Beautiful Than My Console Version
I originally bought Bioshock Infinite during the summer following its release and I must say that I while I was a little dismayed at the relatively short campaign, the visuals and the overall story didn’t disappoint in the slightesest! The graphics were stunning, Elizabeth’s character was fanstically modeled in virtually every single way, and the developers found a way to reinvent the series while still remaining true to its EXTREMELY AWESOME roots! Suffice it to say I love the trilogy so much that I started looking into seeing if there was a way to get any, if not all, of the games on my Mid-2012 non-retina Macbook Pro 15 inch, and sure enough the App Store did NOT fail to deliever. While there were some issues with exceptionally long download times in addition to the strange memory incidents, I finally got the game downloaded and I must say it’s just as breathtaking, if not moreso, to behold. Furthermore, after playing around with the graphics settings a little, I was able to get Bioshock Infinite to the standard where I enjoy playing it on my mac just a tad more than my Xbox 360 and I’m a console gamer. Asphyr has done an amazing job porting Bioshock Infinite over to Mac, and I lookforward to seeing what else they have coming down the pipeline.
Pretty great, but the ending irritated me
So this is a pretty fantastic first-person shooter. The artwork/animation is great and all. The characters are interesting. The story was compelling while I was playing it through the first time. (There hasn’t been a second time; see below.) There’s a point late in the game where you lose Elizabeth and have to save her again—the game succeeded in making me feel desperate to find her. That’s the highest praise I can offer.
The ending, however. Oh god, the ending. A lot of people seem to like the ending, or they say they found it “mind-blowing.” Personally, I found it irritating. Too many twists and revelations that I thought were overblown and unbelievable. I’m sure people have made decent arguments for why all the revelations make sense, if you go back through the game and find the right clues. But I think there will still be loose ends, things that aren’t explained and don’t make sense. (I expect this is hard to avoid when you start putting things like interdimensional travel into your story.) And in my opinion you shouldn’t have to read a book or watch a movie a second time to understand how the ending is justified. Anyway, I can’t face playing through it again, knowing the ending that’s waiting for me. Fighting off all those bad guys—it just sounds like work.
I’m glad I got this on sale.
My FOV pointer
I would give this game five stars, but after I updated to Yosemite, my mouse appears in the center of FOV and does not go away. The work around is to start the game, exit the game, and start the game again. Then the mouse pointer is only the one used in game. Anyway, it is a very fun game with great graphics. I would recommend it as long as you have the disc space and the video card to handle it.
If one uses the tab to Finder and then go back to BS3, the pointer disappears. BUT, like so many others the girl is just annoying.
