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).Read more ›
The game opens with Cole MacGrath awakening from a blinding explosion that kills thousands in the blink of an eye, and leaves the rest of Empire City a complete disaster. The government has quarantined the city and falsified media reports in an effort to contain the true threat: an organization called the First Sons who have completed a device called the RaySphere which is capable of granting a normal human being immense and unnatural powers. Cole finds that he has the ability to absorb electricity straight into his body, and harness it as a means of attack. His body is also granted superhuman abilities, allowing him to leap off of skyscrapers without harming himself. Cole soon learns that a man named Kessler has been orchestrating events from behind the scenes in an attempt to draw him out and force a confrontation. Cole must learn Kessler's true motives while staying one step ahead of city gangs and the F.B.I., while perfecting his growing powers.
'Infamous' is largely a non-linear affair. In between main missions, Cole can undertake side missions which will not only grant him the experience points necessary to unlock new powers, but also wrest control of the city's 3 main districts from their dominant gangs.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
