I totally forgot this particular piece of DLC was inbound, but now that it's out, I downloaded/played it.

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea, Part Two
I liked the sneaking mechanics, they were fairly well done. In addition, the powerset that Elizabeth has worked well with the sneaking, so you could absolutely go the whole game without killing anyone. The catch of course, is that knocking people out was still required, so you inevitably left lots of bodies in your wake, whether they were asleep or "asleep". And there definitely is (or at least was in my case) a blatant abuse of mechanics to get the job done.

As far as the story goes... it wasn't bad. There's a lot there as far as easter eggs and clarity to various points in the base game (as well as the previous iterations), so that's nice. If you want my spoilery impression of the DLC:

That was a lot of work to make Infinite a prequel.
