This game is just plain exciting. I love sandbox games but never before did I think there would be a sandbox with super powers. I love the plot to the game (I love the fact that you are in Empire City during a massive quarantine which everyone blames you for it and you must prove to them you are the good guy not the bad guy) and I love the option to do Evil or Good inbetween mission. No game can compare to this. It is a game like no other!

Rated 9 out of 10 by Ilive4this14 TERRIFIC!
When I bought Killzone 2 earlier this year I did think that there would be anything that would come close to it, but after I rented InFamous I found out that I was sorely mistaken. You jump right into the story as soon as you push START the first time. The graphics steal the show right off the bat. The smallest details across one of the three playable islands of Empire City are quite simply AMAZING. The story is a ton of fun the first time through, and you can play as the main character Cole in two different ways. Be the hero or be infamous (a feared terrorist), but one of the only issues I found with this is the story is the same from both personalities. The cut scenes change slightly, and you get different powers but it can get a bit old. Other than that there is a never ending list of possible things to do from performing side missions for XP points are searching for items for trophies. A definate rent, and a possible buy...depending on whether or not you can get enough out of it.

I was extremely skeptical when I saw this game a few months ago. It looked downright bad, but the fellows at sucker punch decided to fool every PS3 owner out there. This game is amazing. It has tons of replayability becuase of the different paths you can take (good or evil). The story is brilliantly told through beautiful comic cut scenes. And it is also a story that you want to know more about. The side missions are fun but sometimes can get repetitive. But there was enough variety within each side mission type to keep me pleased. The graphics do not look like the best on the surface, but when you count in all of the explosions gun fire and random AI occurences, the city beautifully springs to life with no screen tare or texture pop in...EVER. The sound a voice acting is second to none, and the controls are very intuitive. If you dont want to dish out $***** try the demo at the PSN store, and if that doesn't hook you, rent it. This is an extremely good game that deserves a chance.

This game looks beautiful and appears to run pretty silky. However, the game looks a little lacking in parts. Obviously Sony wants an exclusive Spider-Man type of game so they created their own character and set him in the "real world consequences" type of thing that is so hip these days. I have to tell you though, the game just seems like it should have a LOT more going for it. For starters, is there any other power to use other than the blue electric hand thing. Also, when that one skill is activated does the gamer have to sit and watch the same boring animation over and over? How about a little variety? The special effects should be WAY better. If you are going to slow-mo the punches while using your one ability there better be something else happening besides the enemy slowly flying 10ft. Personally, I think the enemies look average and forgettable. The AI didn't look very bright either. Hopefully the demo proves me wrong. If not, its back to Killzone 2 and Fallout 3 for me.
Rated 7 out of 10 by fcbarcelona0709 Annoying but good setup for sequel
If you read the reviews for this game you think its a must play but i bought it and it really bored me and annoyed me but strangely i coudnt stop playing it until i got to the ending and Kessler really gave the game a real strange twist. Since i finished the game on hero first i still didnt finish the game on infamous (the most evil karma level) and the way the game was setup it really didnt interest me in finding out how the game ended on infamous. The most annoying thing about the game has to be the blast shard because some of the are impossible to find plus if you dont find them you have fight peole off and keep recharging every couple seconds. But the were lots of great things about the game like the controls arent tradtional shooter controls they have way more better features. also coles ablity to jump off buildings and climb make it easier to run and hide and trust me youll do that alot because it doesnt take much for cole to die even from the weakest enemies.
Rated 9 out of 10 by flickyfish Famous for all the Wrong Reasons
inFamous takes place in a quarantined city after an explosion that took 6 block off the map. You play as Cole, who initially was the only one who survived, was seriously injured and shocked by a broken power line while trying to escape the crater left by the explosion. While recovering he realized that he had changed, he could light a light bulb with the touch of a finger, and thins power grew as the days past. inFamous graphics are'nt cutting edge, the graphics are a little grainy and lighting is terrible. The gameplay, however is very responsive, and the combat moves fluidly. The fast paced running and jumping makes the map feel small when its not. Shocking your oponent never seems to get old and you learn new moves that really increase the creativity of combat. The cutscenes almost look comic book like and really bring life to the story. inFamous is a must buy if you like 3rd person open world games. It is definetly one of the best Playstation exclisives made to date.
Rated 9 out of 10 by bam26 Thats it?
This is such an addicting game. You can play for hours and hours without getting bored. The storyline is awsome and the different moves he has is crazy. Its cool how you get to choose from good or evil and they have different side missions and a different storyline also according to what you choose. But i beat this game 3 times already and thats it. Theres nothing else to do, no online play, no multiplayer, nothing. Once you beat this game 2-3 times you get bored of it, well thats what happened to me and my friends who bought it. You could buy it but i think its a waste of spending **-** bucks on something you will play non stop for the first week then not play again for the next couple of months or so. You will get bored fast. Just try different things like going good then evil then play harder skill levels and try to collect all the trophies, this will make you want to play more before you get sick of the game. Hopefully they make another one with a multiplayer and online play then it will be good.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Nithorias be Good or be inFAMOUS!
To start I'm gonna be honest here, first time I saw inFAMOUS it didn't got my attention, Prototype did, but later on I started watching a lot of trailers and gameplay of the game and to tell you the truth, this game owns big time. You start with very limited powers, but you get more as you progress through the game. The best thing that got my attention about this game is that you can go either a Hero or an anti-Hero, each side has its own cut scenes and the people of the city react differently depending which side you are on. I started as Evil and I'm loving it and as soon as I finish the game, I'm gonna start it all over again but as a Good guy. inFAMOUS is truly amazing, they guys from Sucker Punch really pull it off with this game and the environment looks intense, pretty good casting and the electrical powers are extraordinary, if you are still undecided about buying it, the only thing that I can tell you is that you don't know what you're missing. inFAMOUS = MUST BUY!
