Infamous (PS3) By Andrew Burdusel
If you’re a fan of action games, open world games or just good games get inFamous because it’s all of the above. The comic book-inspired PS3 exclusive puts you in the shoes of Cole McGrath, the lighting bolt-wielding badass who can either save Empire City from certain doom or wreak havoc everywhere he goes.
Loved Morality: The game’s whole gimmick of moral choices is done pretty well with Cole’s decisions actually having an effect on just about everything in the game.
Value: Overall the story and gameplay are engaging enough to keep you playing for at least two playthroughs. With a lot of collectibles, the game is sure to keep you busy for a while.
Hated Repetition: One negative is that some of the missions of the game are bland and repetitive. These side missions are optional and could have done with a little more creativity.
Its nice to see the open world concept being taken out of the realm of crime, drug dealing and stealing cars and being used for more creative ideas. InFamous is a great game on its own but it’s a better example of what will soon follow.
