Summary: Ok, I got the free software I didn't actually have to buy because of the anomymous hack of the psn. I found the game to be fun but the storyline was just too many left turns and not enough right ones. I found the game controls easy to use and it is a fun game to play but the storyline just killed it for me, mixed in with bad voice overs. Graphics were an issue as well. That's why I gave this a 3.5. The ending was unexpectedly good.
Summary: Game starts out with an interesting premise and a comic book feel. After an explosion, Cole realizes he has unique powers to drain electricity and manipulate it. With the city quarantined, Cole is the only one to stop an enemy responsible for the intial bombing and his own unique abilities. Controls are fluid and you 'spider-man' climb/leap on buildings throughout the city on various missions. As you develop, you are given options to expand and hone your fighting skills.
A pretty decent action game, but nothing shocking.

Summary: When Infamous first came out, it didn't look all that great to me. We've seen tons of games that try to do the good/evil thing, and there are only a few games where your decisions really make a big difference in the game. I also wasn't impressed by the gameplay videos I'd seen- a dude with lightning powers running around a bleak city with comic book-style cutscenes here and there.
Summary: AT SOME PARTS ITS HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO TO BE MORE EVIL THE GAME JUST DOES WHAT IT WANTS TO AND WHEN YOUR JUMPING AROUND THE GUY JUST GRABS ON TO EVERYTHING EVEN WHEN YOU DONT WANT HIM TO
Do not buy used. Game fails at last two missions. Urk!

Summary: So I took a chance trying a used ps3 game... and while the game is cool (4 stars), I will never make this mistake again. After all my hard work - reaching the last section - now the game is failing. I've noticed there's lots of glitches here and there, but now the game frequently locks up entirely and will not play. Very disappointed as you can imagine (and I have to knock a star off). But inFAMOUS? I'm hooked.
Summary: You have to press R1 every single time you want to shoot lighting from your fingertips. I didn't find myself dropping 50' and making myself a into a shockwave bomb very often, but I did like throwing grenades. The focus zoom power sucks up way too much juice. Theres a frontal shockwave power that can be handy. This game's really smooth in regards to gameplay, and the loading times aren't killer. I played for 12 hrs, and it never froze on me.
