Story
Empire City was a run of the mill metropolis, until one day a massive explosion rips through six square blocks of its bustling downtown real-estate, seemingly leveling everything and everyone in its path. Yet after the dust had cleared, at the center of the blast crater is a lone man, Cole. He is in a coma, but has survived the event and neither he nor the world will ever be the same.

An everyday guy doing his best to make ends meet, Cole had been a bike messenger. Just before the blast he had been sent to ground zero to deliver a package. In the aftermath of the catastrophe, he awakes to find that somehow he has gained strange electrical powers. Empire City is in shambles though. Riots have erupted, breeding chaos and emboldening powerful criminal gangs hungry for power and profit. In the panic that follows the city is quarantined from the mainland, and television broadcasts packed with damning security camera footage link Cole to the scene of the explosion. Cole is now a wanted man, but his extraordinary electricity-based powers and perhaps a semblance of responsibility for the well-being of Empire City are growing. Who is really responsible for the blast though? As an evolving mystery unfolds, Cole must learn how to wield his newfound powers as he searches for the real culprits behind the blast in an attempt to rescue Empire City from complete anarchy.

Gameplay
Built around open-world gameplay where the player decides how to deal with both criminal gangs bent on destruction and devastated citizens who need help, action in infamous contains the standard mix of mission play, in which players are given specific goals and activities to meet, and free play scenarios, where you can wander Empire City doing what they will. In both, developing and learning to control Cole's electricity-based powers is crucial. Cole can not actually generate energy, so these powers are based on energy manipulation instead. This manipulation comes in three basic forms: discharge of energy at living or inanimate targets in either diffused or precise bursts; generation of energy shields used as protection against the weapons or special powers of enemies; and the infusion of objects with time-delayed destructive energy for use as grenades or mines. As impressive as these powers are they do have drawbacks though. Because electricity can cause combustion, Cole can not wield firearms and can be hurt by items he blows up. Also, like anything electrically driven, his abilities require a power source. In the damaged, but not destroyed Empire City, these sources can be found throughout the gameplay area, but players must note that certain actions drain energy faster than others and that enemies will become aware of your need of a power source as the game proceeds and accordingly attempt to destroy those sources.

This need for power also provides a major illustration of the game's morality system. As battles rage throughout the gameplay area and power sources become either scarce or destroyed, Cole is faced with the ethics of his 'bio-draw' ability. Through this he can harvest electrical energy from living organisms. This will provide the energy needed to survive in a pinch, but may also have consequences as to how the game develops over both the short and long-term. In addition to this, players will also face similar game-changing choices in dealing with more casual scenarios involving the citizens of Empire City. As well intentioned as a hero may be, in many cases he is just as likely to be hated as he is to be praised. Choice is the deciding factor in this, and that resides squarely on the shoulders of players in infamous

Key Game Features:

  • Be a Hero - Take on the role of Cole, an everyday guy and urban explorer, who develops a wide range of electricity-based powers. Learn how to adapt to Cole’s evolving powers in an attempt to save Empire City and its people.

Infamous (or inFamous, or INFAMOUS, whatever you call it, it's the same thing) is a fun little game, that made my thumbs happy the past few weeks. The controls are great; the character is finely tuned and responsive, almost to a fault (e.g. if he falls alongside a building, he naturally "attracts" himself to hanging onto a ledge, which could be annoying sometimes). The controls are similar to FPS games in some ways, namely the aiming system, but it's different overall and it is quick and easy to catch onto the controls. The simple act of firing a lightning bolt, or jumping and landing on some pipe, feels great, and the physics certainly doesn't disappoint, as even though the character has plenty of ways of getting around, there is never a moment where it feels unnatural...even when you land a 100 ft fall.

There are also some rpg elements in there as well, namely the experience system in which you can purchase upgrades and new powers. Since you're always going to be encountering enemies every few minutes are so, you never really feel an acute need to gain xp, usually when upgrades are made available, they can be purchased right there. If not, all it takes are a couple fights and maybe a side mission or two, as your xp racks up fast. Building on that, there are some "stunts" you can use which can add to your xp totals, half of which you will most likely come by accidentally, while the other half can be a frustration to do. You also don't receive your complete set of powers until a few missions before the last, and considering that the enemies rack up in difficulty considerably by that time (it's not a walk in the park when you start, either), you'll still be kept on your toes (depending on what you like, this could be a good or a bad thing).

Infamous is a sandbox superhero game: that is to say, you play as a man with super powers. What sorts Infamous apart from other games in the genre? Games like Spiderman, Prototype and Crackdown? Well, to be honest, not a lot. Let’s take a look why.

--STORY—

Cole MacGrath, our titles main hero is assigned to deliver a package to someone in the Historic District of Empire City. Big surprise, it’s not a ‘package’ so much as it is a device designed to give people super powers by killing everyone in proximity to them. The package – the Ray sphere – gives Cole the ability to channel lightning through his body and use a plethora of different powers, which, over the course of the game he will use to stop crime (or perpetrate it), and find the man who sent him to deliver the package. Labelled as a terrorist, Empire City is quarantined by the Government and Cole is roped into helping a secret agent resolve the crisis.

There are no real twists and turns in the game until the very end, and up until that point it manages to be a fairly weak story. There are few cutscenes to be had, most of character interaction occurring via Cole’s cellphone, and nothing in it is very unique: a man without super powers gains superpowers, and must overcome an adversary who was involved with the incident. It is certainly not a very unique approach to the genre.

The cutscenes are presented in a comic-strip format, and it works well for what it tries to convey. The imagery in this style is well done.

The game starts with some strong character establishment and development, but it quickly tapers off after the first act, as if the developers just stopped caring quarter way through the development of the game.

inFamous is a great game. I loved the demo and bought the game. If you do all the side missions, collect the blast shards and get the dead drops it takes a long time. I've probably played around 20 hours and am only 43% done! I'm slow though as most people think you can finish off the game in about 20 to 25 hours if you rush. Collecting things like blast shards aren't just useless hunting expeditions though. They actually aid you in your ability to get more powerful.

This is a sandbox game - an open world environment that features many missions and an overall story (not bad, not great) that ties it together. I don't want people to think it's similar to GTA IV. The style of the game may be (missions, open world) but I was bored with GTA IV and regretted buying it. This game has a completely different gameplay system since you play as a comic book hero/villain. It makes the entire feel of the game unique. You don't drive a car or use guns. You are an electrically powered super hero or potential villain.

If you played the demo first, you may be frustrated by your lack of powers to start the game. This game has a clear RPG style where you have to complete missions, gain experience and learn new powers. XP can be used to upgrade your powers. While annoying at first, the quest to improve yourself keeps you coming back for more. Your power will grow but so will the quality and variety of your opponents as you work your way through the three different islands.

This game forces you to play as a Hero or as a Villain. There is no in between as power upgrades force you to achieve certain levels of karma. Some of the many powers and upgrades that Cole acquires are different depending on your status.
