On the surface, Sony's Infamous is a superhero game in an openworld setting fighting all the baddies Empire City has to offer. Going deeper, Infamous has a true Greek tragedy theme to its storyline that is well-written and constantly challenging/enticing the gamer to pick the good or evil side even after the gamer had already done so. A sense of inner struggle similar to what it's main character, Cole Jones, constantly battles with throughout the entire adventure is one of the many layers Infamous succeeds in.
The game itself has plenty of action, exploring, missions, and side missions to offer. Graphics and sound are top-notch. Animations are fluid, and gameplay is solid almost throughout. Each of Cole's powers has a true purpose in the game and will require a bit of mastering which will prove crucial in the latter events of the game. Learning to combine each of Cole's powers and abilities is quite satisfyingly devastating.
About the only area the game suffers from is the lack of types of side missions. All three islands share similar side missions which is unfortunate and surprising considering the amount of effort was put into the storyline and just about everything else in the game.
Overall, Infamous will certainly not disappoint. It will keep you glued as each completed mission and each island on Empire City lead you closer and closer to the very end where the shocking answer is finally revealed.
this game is really awesome i love the flexibility you have and the karma choices are awesome. i love the electricity changing colors by your karma. one bad thing though is that the enemy is really good and they have crazy powers. if you arent a hardcore gamer like me this game would be really hard for you. i mean though who doesn't like a challlenge though right?
