IGN writes: "As a movie, Infamous would have been confrontational and provocative. As a graphic novel it would have been subversive and dramatic. As a videogame, it's an open world platformer that has you meandering around a post-apocalyptic sand lot collecting power-up shards and running errands for a crooked CIA agent, with the occasional cutscene to reward players. Was it fun? Yes, it was. But it should have been much more".
