PC, PS3, 360, $99.95 ★★★★★ The player is Booker DeWitt, a de­tec­tive tasked with res­cu­ing a child. How­ever, all isn’t what it seems in this spir­i­tual suc­ces­sor to the orig­i­nal, BioShock. While the sat­is­fy­ing mix of shoot­ing and su­per­pow­ers keeps you hooked, it’s the un­rav­el­ling of the mys­tery sur­round­ing the main characters that makes In­fi­nite so com­pelling, cul­mi­nat­ing in a truly mind-bend­ing cli­max. Com­plex nar­ra­tive themes of race, re­li­gion and quantum me­chan­ics com­bine to el­e­vate this game above its peers. Ex­cep­tional.
