Console Monster: InFamous Review

Scaling buildings and objects just works perfectly, you rarely miss a jump or ledge, and this helps enhance the gameplay further, letting you concentrate on navigating or shooting your foes. Some gamers may cry out for a multiplayer mode, but a game of this type just doesn't need it. Without it the developers have concentrated on a solid singleplayer experience with stellar gameplay and story, If you like playing in the sandbox then Console Monster thoroughly recommends that you pick this PlayStation 3 exclusive title up, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Nice score. Gonna buy the game but I need to import one... Where I live inFamous comes fully localized without an option to select english voice overs and subs... Sucks huh?

Hehe, yeah, awesome score. Gonna get this game as soon as it hits the store shelves.

Here in Norway the demo was in French, lol. Have to set the system language to English to play the demo in english.

You forgot the most important part tard:

"if you like playing in the sandbox"

Its not for everyone as any other game. Plus:

KZ2 looses from Gears of War, in score (Metacritic) but overall its the more fun game.

MGS4 yes nice watching another BlURay movie

Motorstorm 1&2? Rated about 8 out of 10? Halo Wars, Ninja Gaiden II and some other 360 games were rated about that score and you said they suck. Thus Motorstorm 1&2 then also fail massively.

Resistance 1&2? Quantity over quality, nice.

GT5p a demo? Really?8 out of 10 average... Same story as above. Bad in your eyes. Warhawk same story, about 8 out of 10.

LittleBigPlanet, the only game really worth buying on the POS3.

Now I'm a huge supporter of the 360 and Microsoft (look at my comments history)

I don't have a Ps3 myself (hopefully getting one soon) but i have played all those games at my friends house and i loved them all especially MGS4.

Now my friend admits that the cut-scenes in MGS4 are a little on the long side about 10 hours all together but they only make up 1/3 of the game the rest is playable.

Now since the average time to complete MGS4 is 10-15 hours not including cut scenes and speed runs then that means the game is in total 20-25 hours long.

Which is incredible for a game this generation as most don't even last 10 hours (not including Multiplayer)

Now how many games on the 360 last that long? Excluding RPG's of course as they are usually very long.

Not many and that's the truth as i have played a [email protected] of games on the 360.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is Be a gamer Mart not a vile spiting hater who hates certain games because there not on his/her favorite console.

TheMART3345d ago

Dave, I own MGS4 also. The first 30 minutes I have touched the controller about 3 to 4 times for a couple of seconds each, without any gameplay actually.

One cutscene is 60 to 90 minutes.

If that ain't a freaking movie, I don't know what is.

The fun thing is though PS3 fans often say games like Halo Wars, Ninja Gaiden 2 on the 360 suck because they score about 8 out of 10. Then they name a list with PS3 'musthaves' with half of them scoring about 8 out of 10. I just don't get that logic.

Man_of_the_year3345d ago

Dave i own/played/competed MGS4 and the cutscenes are not 1/3 the gameplay. the cut scenes are 2/3 the game. I can finish the game in 5 hours. The cutscenes are 9+ hours.

The game can be finished in 4 hours as shown on Youtube. There is more movie than game in MGS4...unless you just sit your controller down and let the time continue while snake sits under a cardboard box....

Mart, Here is my opinion.
Killzone 2 kills Gears 2 for a few reasons. Gears 2 is unplayable almost every match online. It only got a higher score than killzone 2 on metacritic cause reviewers didnt have much time playing the online portion before the game was released. The Gears 2 chainsaw is the biggest most unbalanced gimick in the history of games. Why would epic add 2 extra players to gears 2 when it couldnt even handle 4 on 4 in the first one?
For someone that is hard to impress Mart you really dont come off as the kind of person that would even consider gears of war.
I'm not even going to get started on MGS4 with you cause their is no reasoning with you even if I completely disagree with you.

As for Motorstorm 1 and 2. They are the most underrated racing games I have ever played! ever! especially motorstorm 2. If you try and get gold medals on every track like me then you would have much more fun cause the sense of accomplishment in those games are insane! Then you take your skills online and ram people off the track in a monster truck!? come on Mart what isnt their to love? You of all people should love motorstorm.

As for resistance 1 and 2, you are right to an extent. resistance 1's single player was much better than resistance 2's. R2's mp was much better than R1's. I hated the fake co op in R2! Really boring but 60 player battles with no lag was just so awesome you cant even hate on it.
Mart what I am trying to say is F metacritic! even though their are more ps3 exclusives listed higher on metacritic than 360's exclusives. If you have played ninjagaiden 2 and halo wars then you would know they are nowhere near the quality of Warhawk or the motorstorm games despite the reviews.
Oh yea andLBP isnot the only reason to own a ps3,its just one of them.

xbollox3345d ago

agreed: motorstorm is awesome and way underrated, i keep going back to it and every time i have a giant ball.

yeah Ken: amazing list growing like a boner ;)

"LittleBigPlanet, the only game really worth buying on the POS3"

in that case there's no point buying 360

since LBP sh1t all 360 games according to metacritics
