BioShock Infinite Impressions

I had no intention of purchasing BioShock Infinity this week, but I caved under the pressure of a lot of positive reviews.  I enjoyed the first BioShock very much, but skipped the sequel.  Why?  I think because it was made by a different team and I really didn't think it could live up to the original.

So far, I am really glad I picked up the game.  I've only had two play sessions amounting to around 1.5 hours of playtime.  I've yet to experience combat, except for a few carnival games.  Instead I've been exploring every nook and cranny of the world.  I've also tried to listen to what every npc has had to say.  There are just a ton of great little details which really make this an immersive experience.

The graphics are very nice on my xbox 360, and really server to make a vibrant world.  Like the original, there is a lot to listen to as well.  I can't comment much about combat yet, as I've yet to experience it.  So far, the game seems really solid.
