  • The mechanics of Burial At Sea don't throw any curveballs at the BioShock faithful. The lion's share of your time is taken up by juggling guns and Vigors (Plasmids) and scrounging for resources and audio diaries. However, the level design is more classic BioShock than Infinite. 

Rather than attacking the player with anything approaching organisation - as the Colombia troops used to - the Splicers usually announce their presence with their insane ranting and raving, allowing the player to take stock of their surrounding and plan out their attack. This means that the 'trap' deployment of the Vigors is more of a tactical boon than ever before. It also means players should take note of puddles of gasoline and floors filled with water - just as they did in BioShock.

They should also prepare themselves for a rather trying time; ammo and money is in short supply and while Elizabeth occasionally tosses the player what they most require - health, bullets, EVE - sometimes she will announce that she's out of aid. She can always open a tear in reality, though...
  • The opening feels like classic detective noir - and not just because it takes place in art-deco surroundings in the 1950s. Everything about the way in which the dame (Elizabeth) hires a private dick (Booker) feels like it could have come out of a Raymond Chandler novel, from the way he lights her cigarette and asks "you got a name, miss?" to the way the shadows cast over her face from the Venetian blinds in his office.

It's also the fact Elizabeth seems to know a lot more about Booker than he does about her. The way she reads his motivations and casts the odd disdainful comment at him speaks to the notion that she's taken the measure of Mr Booker DeWitt and found him wanting. The fact he knows nothing about her places her firmly in the role of a classic Femme Fatale.

The case she wants him to take involves a young girl who went missing named Sally. The last time Booker heard about the kid, he presumed her to be dead. Elizabeth has heard different and leads send her and Booker in the direction of Rapture's favourite sociopathic artist, Sander Cohen...
  • Burial At Sea takes place before the fall of Rapture and the sunken city has never looked better. As in BioShock Infinite, players have the opportunity to walk through the streets of an otherworldly city, drinking in the beautiful architecture and catching snippets of conversation between the city's citizens. 

In terms of Rapture lore, Burial At Sea kicks off just shortly after Frank Fontaine's rebellion took place. Eagle-eyed players will see newspaper headlines stating that Fontaine died in a hail of bullets and Ryan Industries has been asked by the council to take control of the dead traitor's assets. 

As far as Fontaine's army of Splicers goes, Andrew Ryan's forces rounded them up and locked them in Fontaine's Department Store, which was then sunk. It's now an underwater prison filled with murderous madmen. Only the desperate or insane would venture into it....

  • Irrational Games' creative director Ken Levine was very open during our one hour chat, even bailing us out during a failed faux-intellectual reference to The Mayor of Casterbridge  when we clearly forgot who wrote it. "Oh, yeah, you've got to love Thomas Hardy..."
  • Lead character Booker DeWitt's relationship with Elizabeth (pictured) is integral to the game's narrative and emotional tug
