Bioshock Infinite, the third game in the first-person shooter series, is now available for download from the Mac App Store. Originally released for consoles and PCs in March of this year, Bioshock Infinite is set in the floating city of Columbia.

In the game, players take on the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker Dewitt, who teams up with AI-controlled Elizabeth.

Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the air-city and uncovering its dark secret.

Players will need OS X 10.8.4 or later, 2.2 GHz CPU speed, 4GB RAM, 512MB video RAM and 30GB of free disk space. Minimum video card requirements include the Radeon HD 3870 and the GeForce 640M.

Bioshock Infinite can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $39.99. [Direct Link] The game is also available on Steam and from GameAgent.com.

That's funny. You will most likely need at least a dedicated GPU to get the most out of this game. Depends greatly on what you are expecting. Low shaders and shadows, effects on low, and res under 1280 and the Air can probably pull it off ~30FPS give or take the Mac port losses. It looks to be unplayable on anything but the very lowest settings on even the better optimized Windows systems.

Look at the very 1st Game benchmark area.

Not sure how this relates, but I played it all the way through in bootcamp with a current Mac mini. 1600x900 res and some setting on high and some at medium. None at low. Played great. Can't wait to try it in osx.
Also played some at 1080p and was still very playable.

Should I try it?

I played the game for an hour (thanks playstation plus) and was really turned off. Early in the game I was given a silly choice and after I insulted the culture of the people I was visiting (because apparently their culture is backward) they react by wanting to take me into custody. I suppose that is fair, I think their society is unjust and they think I am a foreigner questioning their morals. So I am about to be taken away which I think is a fair moral choice but instead I start killing all the cops of the city I am visiting for the crime of arresting me. I played beyond that and it turned into a pretty typical shooter with my killing dozens of poor cops for the injustice of their trying to maintain order in the society they had constructed.

I play a lot of violent games so that does not bother me much, what bothered me was the protagonist's and thereby my absolutely absurd moral position of mowing down fathers and husbands because I thought I should not be taken into jail. I am essentially a petty criminal who is on a violent mass murder rampage. It's really impossible to view the enemies as the bad guy and really feels like I was the bad guy.

So after all that, does it get better? The gameplay was so so and the story seemed trite and gratuitously violent without any justification for my killing off the poor backward townsfolk. I loved Bioshock 1 and 2, but the vibe I got from the game was that Levine now feels he is a deep philosopher and must be trying to set up what he thinks is a moral lesson by turning me into a murderer. Does it get better?

Good on 2K for making a speedy port though

You might want to redirect your praise to the folks who actually did the port (http://www.aspyr.com/).
