Bioshock Infinite User Reviews
In this first-person shooter, the player assumes the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, who is sent to Columbia to rescue Elizabeth, a young woman imprisoned there since childhood. He develops a relationship with Elizabeth, augmenting his abilities with hers so they may escape from a city literally falling from the sky. DeWitt learns to fight foes in high-speed Sky-Line battles, engage in combat both indoors and amongst the clouds, and harnesses the power of dozens of new weapons and abilities.

While Booker and Elizabeth walk through an arcade, she sees a game and remarks how she heard it was "delayed THREE times". This could be considered a sly wink from the writers, as Bioshock Infinite itself was delayed several times.
During development, one religious developer threatened to quit because he was offended by the portrayal of Comstock, who is Christian. Ken Levine decided to sit down with the developer and discuss the character; if the developer wasn't satisfied at the end of the conversation over what they would do with Comstock as a character he would be allowed to leave with no hard feelings. In the end, the developer was happy with the changes Levine promised to give the character and returned to work, and the discussion encouraged Levine to write Comstock with more depth and personality than his original incarnation.
Albert Fink "created" his music by overhearing songs through the numerous random tears that would appear in Columbia. Because of this, the songs you hear being sung throughout the game are actually songs in the "future" re-worked to sound period specific. For example, the quartet in the beginning of the game sings "God Only Knows" originally by the Beach Boys and in a bar in the game you can overhear a version of "Tainted Love" by Gloria Jones.
The original conflict was going to be between the "tech geeks" and the "luddites". Ken Levine decided this conflict wasn't controversial enough, so he changed it and added the political angle.
Originally, Daisy Fitzroy was white.
The development team reportedly cut "five or six games worth" of material during development
Almost nothing from the original E3 2011 trailer makes it in to the final game.
At one point in the story, a female soldier seemingly confuses Elizabeth with someone called "Annabelle." This is a reference to the Russian cosplayer, Anna Moleva, whose replicated look of Elizabeth was so similar that she was hired to represent the character for promotional material.Quotes

During seemingly music-less stretches of BioShock Infinite, an extremely slowed-down song is played in the background noise. When sped up, voices can be heard on this mysterious musical track.
The Wrench, your trusty weapon in the original BioShock, can be found in BioShock Infinite. It's located just after acquiring the Murder of Crows Vigor, sitting next to a piece of Gear. The Wrench can also be seen on the First Lady Airship in which Elizabeth uses to attack Booker.
At the beginning of Battleship Bay, after waking up, and walking through the first hallway, you can find pistol ammo in a baby carriage. This is a reference to the original BioShock when you find the pistol in a baby carriage.
