Whether it’s high in the sky or deep beneath the blue sea, Bioshock Infinite‘s DLC expansions just can’t catch a break. From a problematic attempt at salvaging the cut co-op mode, to a confusing pair of story addons, Irrational Games seems to do more harm than good for their final game. This, for better or worse, is Bioshock Shock Infinite‘s Season Pass.
Game: Bioshock Infinite Season Pass
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3, PC (Reviewed)
Price: $19.99 ($34.99 if all DLC is purchased separately)
Clash in the Clouds: 5/10 — There are challenge modes that push you to explore a game’s mechanics to your heart’s content. Clash in the Clouds is not one of those modes.
Burial at Sea Part 1: 5.5/10 — If you ever wanted to see what Bioshock could have been like if it was one of those half-baked indie shooters, they congratulations! You and you alone are going to enjoy this.
Burial at Sea Part 2: 7/10 — An equal parts enjoyable stealth game and painfully awkward narrative attempt to tie up every loose end possible… even when there’s no reason to tie them up.
Entire Package: 5.9/10 — Take your twenty dollars and buy a better game.
The game reviewed was purchased by a friend, and I reviewed/captured the footage with their copy of the game.
