Will a person who doesn't really enjoy first person shooters other than Doom and Quake enjoy this? I did enjoy Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Far Cry 3, but i liked them more because of stealth, visuals, exploration and RPG mechanics. I tried to avoid shooting for the most part.

However I do enjoy 3rd person shooters like Max Payne 3 and Alan Wake immensely.


Doom & Quake and Deus & FC3 are strange bedfellows. I also don't like FPS much, particularly the recent ones, where you shoot less and do other things more. That said this game can be played as an outright shooter, enemy AI is pretty dumb unless you are playing at highest difficulty. You can simply bulldoze your way through the enemies.

Coming to your query, this game neither has any stealth part nor much RPG mechanics. Visuals are nice, if you don't mind the over-the-top bloom and low-res textures up close. You do get a fairly large amount of area to explore though.

this is dx11 or 9??
btw, are there any options to disable bloom in graphics settings??

btw, is the AMD Catalyst Beta 13.3 driver stable enough??

Completed the game yesterday. :D
Started a 2nd playthrough in 1999 mode, for some steam achievements!!

13.3 is the stable one. I was using 13.2, when I first launched the game, and it was crashing every 15 or 30 minutes, randomly. Doing a fresh uninstall of the drivers, and installing 13.3 did the trick.

I like the first two and the second two for two different reasons.

I like Doom & Quake because of the emphasis they have on movement and the feeling of power they give(which hasn't been matched by any game i've played since. Max Payne 3 came close, but no cigar). Quake can almost be called semi platformer. Would Bioshock Infinite have Half-Life 2 like "exploration", or Fallout like true exploration?

I guess its more like half- life 2 exploration. Not true Exploration, thats the ground of Bethesda.

Finally completed the game. Clocked 28.6 hours according to Steam. Apart from a few moments and some annoyances, highly satisfying. The ending is just mind-blowing.

Still couldn't find all the voxaphones. :(

The sad part of this game is that I'll have to buy a new HDD to install it :(
