Excerpt: There are only two real reasons to dislike inFAMOUS before you start really nitpicking. One is that the randomly-generated battles occasionally hit you with a nearly-inescapable catch-22, such as fighting more than one guy at once who has a shotgun.
Summary: InFamous is one of the best games you are going to play on your PS3 this year. The storyline is great, the gameplay is fantastic and the powers are just amazing. Once again SCEA delivers a game that is fun, long-lasting, rewarding, well polished and with all the qualities of a marquee game.
Excerpt: inFAMOUS has a very theatrical presentation. The minute you push start, Empire City is rocked by a cataclysmic explosion. Unless you start a new game (which you will do, trust me), this is the last time you'll see the title screen. From here, you're always "in the game.
Infamous Delivers a Solid Open-World Superhero Experience
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Play the role of hero or villain in a super-powered sandbox
Graphics: The city's color palette is a little bland, but contrasts nicely against the vibrant electrical effects
Sound: Solid voice acting, although Cole's coarse whisper doesn't fit the character.
Summary: " InFamous " is simply fun. It sucks you in. You forgive the rare glitches because up until the point they happen you are genuinely happy to be playing. Content to be lead through the outlandish story the game takes you on (twice).
