Irrational Games and 2K Games today announced that BioShock Infinite, the next installment in the BioShock series developed by Irrational Games, has earned 75 E3 2011 editorial awards, including 39 “Game of Show” awards.

In addition to these honors, the press had high praise for what they saw of the game at E3 2011:

E! Online called BioShock Infinite “simply gorgeous, the best looking game at E3,” while USA Today said BioShock Infinite was “The most talked-about game at E3.” The New York Times wrote, “In narrative depth and intellectual ambition, Infinite appeared to be the top of the class at E3.”

“At this year’s E3, members of the Irrational team were honored to see the amazing games our industry friends and colleagues are producing. And we are thrilled that the gaming media selected BioShock Infinite as a standout title at the show,” said Ken Levine (@iglevine), creative director and president of Irrational Games.

In addition to the many independent editorial awards, BioShock Infinite also earned the industry’s most coveted E3 honor, the Game Critics Awards’ “Game of Show.” This marks another significant win for a title developed by Irrational Games, as the original BioShock was awarded the Game Critics Awards’ “Best Action/Adventure Game” honor in 2007.
