InFamous (4.5/5)

Imagine living in Empire city, a huge, prospering metropolis. All is well until an explosion destroys a large chunk of the city.  Thousands are dead, and a plague breaks out.  In the chaos, powerful gangs take control of the city, taking what they want and killing countless innocents.  Now imagine that that same explosion gave you power.  The power to change this wasteland into whatever you want.  The question is, will you fight for the greater good, or just take what you want?

InFamous is all about choices.  But the choices are not just good vs. evil, they are self-sacrafice vs. self intrest.  You actions shape how the citizens of empire city view you, and how your relations with other characters go.  You will really have to decide who you want to be a hero or infamous.

The story with this game is amazing.  The characters feel real and all have their own arcs.  The ending will blow your mind.  The plot for this game is acually better than the plot of a lot of movies I have seen.  The game controls well, and really gives you a sense of power (especially towards the end of the game.)  Reallly, this game is almost perfect.

But there are a few flaws.  The when you jump, the game pulls you into nearby objects, which allows for some neat acrobatic stunts and you make your way across rooftops.  However, the system also makes it hard to do things like get down from the roof of a building.  Some of the missions get repetitive, and by the end it seems as though they just keep throwing more and more guys at you instead of coming up with more unique ways to challenge you.

However, these problems are not too bad and won’t keep you from enjoying this game.  If you have a PS3, you owe it to yourself to buy this game.


InFamous: Post Blast

Ok, I just beat InFamous.  (That review is coming soon)  While searching the internet for refrences to a sequel, I stumbled across something interesting.  It turns out that Sucker Punch (through IGN) has release a 4-part free downloadable comic that servers as a prequel to the game.  It looks pretty interesting, and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the first two weeks after the explosion.

You can download it here

Or, it can also be found on InFamous Wiki here
