Another brilliant PS3 exclusive =),
This review is from: inFamous - Platinum Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I've had Infamous for a while now and bought it because of all its 4 and 5 star reviews. I think the city is a great place for the action to take place as there's just so much space.
Cole is the superhero and finds himself with electric powers after being in an explosion of strange sorts. I will not ruin anymore of the story as this is just a game that must be played by any ps3 gamer.
Cole's range of electrical abilities are incredibly fun to use and definitely make this game a great superhero adventure. He is almost invincible if you can master his range of moves and use them wisely. Another great thing about this game is that you have a certain amount of "battery cores" which will be drained by using special moves. This means one must spare his electricity if they aren't near an electrical source. This adds to the games length and makes it more difficult which is great!
GRAPHICS AND REPLAYABILITY
The graphics of Infamous are not the best seen on the PS3 and titles such as uncharted 2 and metal gear solid 4 are obviously more detailed. HOWEVER the graphics are still fantastic and the entire city seems well detailed which is wonderful for a large scale game. Infamous' story is a relatively long one, and unless you start out on hard you'll definitely want a second playthrough on a more difficult setting. And you'll probably want another playthrough to choose the opposite karma.
NOT TO MENTION all the side missions and blast shard findings which aren't all that fun but you may want to attempt 100% completion for the trophies.
Overall Infamous is a well rounded and solid game with plenty of depth and variety. One of the best PS3 exclusives at the moment and is up there with the like of LittleBigPlanet and Uncharted.
I'd Give it 92% and a must buy for ps3 owners. Its a platinum game for a reason =)
