Pros Fun! Great controls, fun platforming elements, above average graphics, cool superpowers, large expansive world, unbelievably good sound on a surround sound system. Lots of replay value as you choose between 2 different good and evil paths.
Cons Graphics are good, but not great. Storyline is alright at best.
Summary Take everything cool about the open world nature of the Grand Theft Auto series, super heroes or villains, Star Wars-esque Force powers, and highly enjoyable platforming, and you have one of the best games available exclusively to the PlayStation 3.
Could write more, but there are hundreds of reviews out there on gaming sites. There's a reason this game is rated 90% or higher on the overwhelming majority of gaming sites (IGN, Gamespot, Gamepro, etc).
IF you have a good surround sound system this game is gonna absolutely blow you away. Some of the best sound effects I've ever encountered in a video game. No joke, the sound effects are Metal Gear Solid 4 quality...the sound is the technical aspect of the game that absolutely blew me away.
Graphics are good, but nothing that's going to blow you away. For an sandbox game the graphics are good, but you can't seriously compare the graphics to graphical powerhouses like Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4.
Simply put, this game is FUN! It plays like a dream and offers 2 very different gaming experiences when choosing between good and evil. Highly recommended!
Pros Since I'm a big fan of the GTA series and Red Dead Redemption, I enjoy the option to explore the areas the game offers. Also love the option to be good or evil.
Cons The controls are a little sticky, but it's not preventing me from enjoying the game
Summary Bottom line is that this is a great game to play that is even better if you get the option to download it for free from the PSN
Pros Climbing can be fun even if you are afraid of heights
Cons Pretty silly side missions and level of difficulty is basic at best
Summary A nice little game with plenty to look for and do but as with most games, the story line is crap. Controls are ok, and his climbing abilities make for extra fun. All in all, I found it a bit too easy, but interesting nevertheless.
Pros 1. Karma Feature
2. Great, involving storyline
3. Open World Sandbox game
4. Can Climb on ANYTHING
5. Likeable Characters
6. Most Importantly, great gameplay
Cons 1. A lot of "popping up"
2. Controls are very sticky
3. Civilians get in the way on some missions
4, Very annoying side-kick (Zeke)
Summary Hard to not love this game if you are a PS3 fanboy. I mean, inFAMOUS is made by Sucker Punch, the company that brought you the hit Sly Cooper series. Anyway, in inFAMOUS you are Cole, an ordinary delivery boy until one day one of the packages he was carrying explodes giving him extraordinary electrical powers. The city you live in (Empire City) is rocked by this explosion, and a plague suddenly infects many that survived. The government quarantines the city. Your objective, found out why you got your powers, and to get out of the city.
Story: I wasn't expecting much from inFAMOUS' story, but I think the storyline is what made me love this game so much. It is presented greatly in comic-book fashion giving the real superhero feel to the game. A good old-fashion twist is definitely not what I was expecting, but I was impressed with what Sucker Punch came up with for the story, a pleasant surprise for me. You get a lot in the storyline, a side-kick (although he is very annoying at times), a love story, a superhero feel, and a great twist. Story: 5/5
Graphics: Lets get to the bad stuff first, the city at times (mostly when standing on top of buildings) looks bland and doesn't look like it's but a small suburban town. There is a lot of popping up. Bad spawn points for enemies. With all of that there are the good things, like the lighting Cole shoots is so realistic, it's hard to put into words without a screenshot to show. Graphics: 2.5/5
Gameplay: One word, electrifying. Yes I know bad pun. Again, bad stuff first. The controls are sticky. To put it in an elaborate way, say you are climbing up a building and enemies start firing at you. Let's say you want to jump down to a certain ledge of a building. You will probably have to jump off of a few ledges on the way down, because when you free fall in this game, it drags you into places that you don't want to go, causing you (especially if you are playing on hard difficulty) to be shot too many times and get killed. The generous checkpoint system fixes that though. Cole's powers evolve and grow stronger throughout the game. The powers you gain are very well spread out along the course of the game, and every time you get a power you almost feel more powerful than before. The missions are very fun and challenging, and although it lacks the feature to play online, it makes up with the 40-60 missions and side missions. Gameplay: 4/5
When playing both good and bad karma it took me about 10 hours each (completing every side mission too). I don't know about you, but $3.00 for an hour of gameplay is a great deal by me....
Pros The climbing mechanics are sweet, story is good and it is really fun.
Cons I am having a bit of trouble with aiming but likely my fault for playing so much RE5 lately...
Summary Highly recommend this title.
