Bioshock Infinite: Bury Me at Sea – Episode 1

Burial at Sea - Episode 1Returning to Rapture didn’t mean as much to me as is would to long time Bioshock fans but I did enjoy having more Bioshock Infinite to play.

Booker Dewitt is awoken in his office by a young woman named Elizabeth. She has a job for the private detective. The job is to find a young girl that is missing. This girl has been missing for sometime and is presumed dead. For reasons that are unclear from the start, Elizabeth still believes the girl to be alive. Both Dewitt and Elizabeth have some connection to this girl but neither are clear about what that is for now.  With Elizabeth’s prodding, she and Dewitt set out to find the lost girl.

If you haven’t guessed it, I did purchase the DLC for Bioshock Infinite that I had been pondering. This first piece of DLC is another side story of parallel possibilities that the game introduced with traveling inside of the tears. Since this is just DLC let’s keep the tech review short by saying it matches everything about the full game. Story wise it also matches the full game in its color and mystery. Basically, if you like the full game you will enjoy the DLC.

The only gripe I have with the DLC is the overall value. I went ahead and purchased the full season pass at $20 from the PlayStation Network. My reasoning was that it was an overall better value since Burial at Sea Episode One was priced at $15 alone. Whereas the season pass includes both episodes of Burial at Sea and Clash in the Clouds. The later being a somewhat uninspired survival mode that I personally don’t have much interest in. Weigh the cost of the DLC against its length at it becomes more questionable. In less than two hours I played one round in Clash in the Clouds and completed Episode 1 of Burial at Sea. That’s pretty short in my opinion. If episode two is the same length then you would be paying $30 for about three hours of content if you buy them separately. Saving $10 is nice and you get another play mode you may be interested in.

In the end, I’m pleased with the purchase and enjoyed the first episode. When the next episode is released, I do not know. However, upon its release I look forward to completing this tangent story.
