Pros
+Main protagonist actually has a personality/character compared to the first two Bioshock games
+The buddy system with Elizabeth is a unique and fresh breath of air to the series
+The setting and environment is nicely done - has a mixture of the dark atmosphere that BS1 had and a unique colorful vibrant atmosphere as well unique to the game
+The DLC consists of two episodes which continues the storyline but with a twst and also contains a arena mode type of mini game allowing you to challenge yourself in combat
+The story adds humor and dramatic story telling compared to the previous games
+Voice acting is fantastic and goes well with the storytelling
+Many key elements from the original Bioshock games come back both in the main game and in the DLC

Cons
-In the main campaign you can only carry two weapons at a time however in the DLC you can carry as many like in Bioshock 1
-Not many mini games in Infinite compared to Bioshock 1 except until episode 2 of Burial at Sea DLC
-Difficulty in Bioshock Infinite gun game combat is easier than previous games
-There are some lazy designs in some of the models such as the environment (i.e. Apples in a basket)

Worth your time
I found this game to be solid and a great entry in the Bioshock franchise. Although the game lacked in the interesting AI routines that made the previous entries so special, it still delivered on a fascinating story and intriguing universe. Sure, there are a few major plotholes, but I can't say that I didn't enjoy the hell out of my time with this game. Highly recommended.
