inFAMOUS is a great exclusive game for the PS3 which shows off its potential well. The story is strong and suspenseful which makes you want to keep playing to find out how it will play out. The characters in the game are also well detailed with each being distinct and having their own personality and each brings something new to the story. I like how the graphics look, there sharp but also kinda look a little gritty which I think adds a little to the game and represents it well. the game play is well done with good controls that aren't confusing or difficult to remember or get the hang of. The ability to upgrade your powers and play as good or bad really adds a lot of replayability to the game making you feel you got your moneys worth out of the game. All in all I gave this game a 9/10. Thanks for reading my review of inFAMOUS.
All I can say is, best game of 2009 hands down(perhaps Modern Warfare 2 has a chance but I doubt it)
Great effects, great controls, smooth movements, great free running - assassin's creed and GTA4 have nothing on this game. Don't believe any of the reviews that say there are glitches - there are very few and the ones that are in the game now WILL GET PATCHED! Give the game a try and rate it a 9 or higher - this game deserves it!
First off, yeah. I gave it a 10, but before you count me off as a fanboy and/or raving lunatic. Let me explain.
The 1-10 score system (or any rating system for that matter) rarely gets used fully, and i think that's unfortunate. People are afraid to give something a 10 for whatever reason... The way i look at it, if i feel like a game is the best game out there at the current time, then it deserves a 10. This is most definitely the case for inFamous. For me personally, it's the best game out on the market at this current date. Now, that might change next week, but i'm talking about this very moment.
InFamous has so many great things going for it, it's hard to know where to start. First, let me get the few bad things out of the way. One of the must frustrating things is related to the free-running, parkour aspect of the game. They implement it almost flawlessly, except for when you are trying to jump and grab on to small objects, or thin poles. Cole doesn't always want to grab on, or occasionally, he grabs something else. Something you weren't aiming for. That definitely gets a bit frustrating. The rest is all minor. Some clipping, popping, graphical anomalies, etc. However, you are usually so focused on the awesome action, you rarely notice these things.
The good in inFamous far outshines the bad. The combat is intuative and creative. Aiming, movement, and cover are all executed to perfection. The game has a nice progression system, many fun and flashy powers, as well as impressive, and distinct looking enemies. Comic book fans are going to immediately fall in love with this game, as it plays out similar to a super-hero story. Complete with artistic, comic-style cutscenes. Nothing beats cutting lose, and simply roaming around the city with Cole's super hero powers. Really, this game is impossible to pass on. You would be crazy to own a PS3, and not own this game.
BUY IT! Support PS3 exclusives, especially one this great.
