Times Online: inFamous Review

Times Online writes: "Clearly inspired by Crackdown, a rival title, InFamous provides a vast urban world to explore at will, which is half the fun, whether it's leaping across rooftops or sliding along cables. The storyline is strong and the missions are varied. The ailing PS3 sorely needs more big-hitting exclusives and this gritty tale delivers a welcome burst of energy".

"The ailing PS3 sorely needs more big-hitting exclusives and this gritty tale delivers a welcome burst of energy".

/Facepalm..

Also WTF is up with the Crackdown "inspiration" only thing in common is the sandbox gameplay. This has more inspiration from Batman No Man's Land and the Sly Cooper games.

cmrbe2564d ago

Crackdown invented sandbox super hero games. All those other games before it were just a dream.

Jsynn72563d ago

Really? I could sorta remember games with a guy with spider powers who would fight gangs and super villain types and was able to swing throughout this huge city. I remember it coming out before Crackdown. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of it. Oh well,Crackdown sets the bar for all super hero sandbox games!

/sarcasm

Clearly inspired by Crackdown?!... The ailing PS3?!!!!

Who wrote this crap? Aaron Greenberg?

Baka-akaB2563d ago

I know i know ... i expect that even after the upcoming e3 and the continued surge of games from sony and others , some journalists will still goes "oh its nice to have such a great title , the ps3 was really needing one" ....

Like that clown going like "the ps3 needed badly some action game thanks god infamous is here " despite stuff like uncharted and wich likewise will probably write " the ps3 need some action game badly thx god for uncharted 2" while forgetting about infamous ...

It certainly takes notes from Crackdown and Assassin's Creed. Takes the best parts from each. Sly too, of course, but there's nothing wild about the reviewer's claim.

Kids, stop knotting your knickers.

brandonk1292563d ago

has been proven time and time again with gameyradar, this, aron greenburg, etc. just gotta ignore it and wait for it to subside

cmrbe2563d ago

That was just a dream lol!.

ultimolu2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

...Then why do I have eleven exclusives and only seven multiplatform games? I could have sworn they were for the PS3...*stares at system*

Seriously man, were these journalists programmed to say that the PS3 is lacking in games? Are they still stuck in 2006/2007?!

Nevertheless, great score but that boggles the mind.

And Primordial, no it doesn't.

pixelsword2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

I don't know whether to laugh or facepalm.

I think i'll do both.

How this guy beat anyone out for writing about games on timeonline is beyond me.

GameGambits2563d ago

Great score, but 100% bull sh*t fail journalist review.

I want someone to take the time to name all the exclusives on Xbox 360 and PS3, then add ones you know are 100% confirmed as exclusives for each console that are slated for a 2009 release date.

You tell me which console needs more big exclusives...you tell me.

Transporter472564d ago

unrealgamer582563d ago

ok here we go with the ps3 is sorely missing exclusives

happyface2563d ago

they prob mean sony needs exclusives that will sell big which hasn't been happening

will ps triple owners ignore this game too?

cmrbe2563d ago

in the x360 trolls world. Game sales are also AAA exclusive games they play. Heck they loved to play Gears and Halo 3 game sales which according to them are AAA games.

Sheikh Yerbouti2563d ago

the author has been sleeping under a rock the past several months, smoking "down on the X Crack".

The XBox needs upcoming exclusives more than PS3 at the moment, and inFamous is more GTA Sly Cooper while Crackdown's GTA Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction.

do I need to name anymore?

DrWan2563d ago

Valkria Chronicles (Best game I have played this generation yet)

ChampIDC2563d ago

Better question would be, do you really need to name any? Anyone that pays attention to anything knows the PS3 isn't lacking games anymore. Some people love living in the past.

DA_SHREDDER2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

What are you talking about man? The ps3 never lacked any games. If I remember correctly the 360 just had a few more exclusives but thats only because it came out a year before the ps3 did. The ps3 had games since day one. I was playing God of War 2, Resistance, Motorstorm, and Warhawk the same day I purchased my ps3 in 2007. Then came along Uncharted, Ratchet, Lair, Heavenly Sword, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Oblivion, SSDHD, Rainbow Six Vegas in 2007. Im not dogging you, but the argument that the ps3 didn't have any games was only because fanboys acted like Gears of War, and Halo were everything. When in fact they are just overrated turds.

BTW, the ps3 could have 100 AAA exclusives and people would still be saying the ps3 sucks. I dont know whats wrong with these idiots who think they are hardcore yet talk crap about the most hardcore console on the market? Just dont worry about it. As long as Sony keeps publishing games like this then just make sure you keep buying.

The only thing that will be ailing is this clown's paycheck if he keeps up the shoddy work. What a moron!!
