IGN: Bioshock Infinite on consoles is "graphically underwhelming"
 

 
It quickly becomes clear when you start playing Infinite that Columbia is both exactly the same as the originalís underwater utopia of Rapture, yet simultaneously completely different. One is underwater; claustrophobic. The other is endless; the sky is literally the limit. Both are utopias Ė idealistic clusters of humanity Ė with cracks beginning to show through beneath the magnificent facades.


Take the time to soak in the sights.

On that note, however, let me warn you console players up front: unlike its jaw-dropping-in-2007 predecessor (Iím not counting BioShock 2 here, as that wasnít our first trip to Rapture), BioShock Infinite does not have the same technical wow-factor going for it. Yes, Columbia is stunning from a scale, scope, and art-direction perspective, but on a raw graphical level it is a bit underwhelming on the Xbox 360 version Iím starting with. Textures are muddy and low-resolution and the framerate takes regular slight-but-noticeable dips. It reminds me of the console version of Dishonored in that way.

Do these minor issues take away from your experience at all? No, but Iím very curious to check out the PC version during the course of my review. Presuming you throw a beefy enough rig at Infinite, the olí mouse-and-keyboard may prove to be the best way to explore Columbia, particularly since, with no multiplayer modes, you donít have to worry about choosing your platform based on which network your friends will be playing on.

I'm not copping, BS2 was an underwhelming game as a whole. In fact the series is one of the most overrated this gen.

The entire hype of the franchise lives off the 1st 10minutes of BS1

Other than that, its nothing to write home about.

A lot of people care.

I care deeply about performance and non jaggie edges with my current games. PS2 and under? I can deal with what limitations were in place in those era. No reason to accept sh*tty coded or poor performance games in this generation.

And don't act like graphics don't play any part in what you currently play. It's icing on the cake and everyone loves that extra icing. Sorry but i will take full MSAA/FXAA @ 1920/1080/2048x1080 @ 60fps over sub-HD 20-30fps. Enjoy your story while i enjoy the story with incredibly smooth frame rate and beautiful graphics. I get to have my cake and it to on PC.

The graphics will be fine. All the article says is that pc has better graphics. Which is a given. I cant wait to be satisfied come the 26th.

nah, i game on console and still care about graphics to a certain extent mediocre graphics wouldn't stop me from playing a great game, but a game with sh*tty a.ss graphics would be hard to get into

everybody cares about graphics to a certain degree..when people say they'd still play w/e game even with stick figures or whatever the fu*k, as long as the story's the same, it's usually just lies to try and prove a point


better graphics do make the game better, but we're at a point now where we know what kind of graphics to expect from current gen consoles and they're fine for current gen, so its not a problem

No point to prove, It's true, Graphics don't enhance the story which is what I care about...
