Sucker Punch: inFamous Was Not a Great Game

SPOnG: "Sucker Punch producer Brian Fleming has offered some unique reasoning behind inFAMOUS' curious underrated status - it's because he feels the game simply wasn't good enough although it was an 'OK game'."

Well I disagree.

I had a blast playing it and the re playability with the karma choices was genius. Gameplay was varied and platforming was awesome.

This is funny cause I played the Infamous demo last year and I HATED it. I thought the gameplay was repetitive AND the character animations were shit.

But 2 weeks ago, I played the demo again and for some weird reason I'm in LOVE with the game. Just yesterday I played the demo for 3 hours.

This just goes to show that you have to be in a certain mood to enjoy a game.

same happened with me and fallout 3 and Uncharted

LOGICWINS2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

^^It happened to me with GOW3 as well. To enjoy a game, you have to accept it for what it is, even though the gameplay isn't something you may be used to.

I remember paying $60 for GOW3 and I was so turned off by the experience that I sold it for AC2 and a $20 PSN card.

I kind of regret it now...but AC2 was a beast game so I won either way :)

Play the entire first game. It is way better than the demo.

Logic have you not played the other GOW's?

"^^It happened to me with GOW3 as well. To enjoy a game, you have to accept it for what it is, even though the gameplay isn't something you may be used to. "

its the same gameplay. Im confused on what you mean then

LOGICWINS2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

@nycredude-I bet it is. If I find a deal where u gt Infamous 1 free for pre-ordering Infamous 2, then ill take it. I remember this website that gave you Yakuza 3 for FREE if you pre-ordered Yakuza 4.

@BlackTar187- I owned GOW 1,2 and 3 at some point. I thought GOW1 was overrated, but it was okay.

I thought GOW2 was EPIC. Awesome game. Blended story and action perfectly.

GOW3 dropped the ball in the story department IMO and I got tired of the gameplay. I felt that devs didn't take enough risks in that department.

PirateThom2755d ago

I hated the inFamous demo, I almost cancelled my pre-order because of it, I thought it was limited and boring and repetative... I'm glad I didn't, definitely one of my favourite games this gen.

Bordel_19002755d ago

God of War 3 is legendary, I love that game to death. Santa Monica are gods.

gaffyh2755d ago

When I played the demo, I also hated it, but decided to get inFAMOUS anyway. Best decision I ever made, because inFAMOUS is one of my favourite games ever. It's why I'm so hyped for the second game.

TheDeadMetalhead2755d ago

The only thing I hated about the first game:

Every single character that wasn't Cole or John was a complete and utter asshole, and I wanted to kill them all. Also, these same assholes would never shut the hell up for two seconds in the middle of a mission.

inveni02754d ago

I didn't like the inFamous demo, but I played it a few times. The more I played it, the more I liked it. To this day, inFamous is my only Platinum. And I'm playing it AGAIN because I'm so anxious for inFamous 2.

The same thing happened with Uncharted. I thought Uncharted looked stupid, but by round two with the demo, I was hooked. I played that demo to death until the game came out.

While inFamous might not have had all the flash and flair of other games, some games like inFamous are just like good hookers...they suck you in.

infamous was and is one of my favourite games this generation. one of the game i beat more than one time. loved it.

egidem2755d ago

I completely agree...with xYLeinen's disagree of course. inFamous was/is an awesome game!

Eyeco2755d ago

i kinda agree i liked Infamous but i didnt think it was as good as it could have been, theres so much more they could have done with the rpg aspect, also there isn't much to do after you beat the game.

HolyOrangeCows2755d ago

It's strange to have the producer of one of my favorite new IPs of this gen say that the game was simply "okay"

FAGOL2755d ago

Wow he's got some balls to say that about his own game. But yh I agree with him. Infamous 1 felt average. The game itself was original but it definatly didn't feel polished. Infamous 2 looks like a completly different game and unlike Infamous 1 it has a variety of cool moves from what i've seen from beta gameplay.

LOGICWINS2755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

Like the only flaws that I noted from the demo was the jaggies and last gen character animations...other than that I felt that everything else was solid. Also, there were some lip-syncing issues.

Similar to Yakuza 3, Infamous 1's gameplay was so fun that its flaws didn't detract too much from the experience. Again, I'm only talking about the demo, the full game would probably blow my mind.

The fact that the producer thinks Infamous 1 was just an "okay" game tells me that Infamous 2 will without a doubt be one of the best game I've played this gen.

newn4gguy2755d ago

Play the full game!!! You're missing out if you don't.

Ravenor2755d ago

Whats fun about it? The Combat is kinda slow, the missions are dull, the city is dull and the enemies are nothing special to look at beyond the trash can mechs.

Infamous isn't a bad open world exclusive, but it's nothing special. It runs into the same problem Crackdown did, same shit repeatedly and unfortunately that same shit isn't all that interesting.

Klaykid1232755d ago


Because it is fun to blow shit up with lightning.

jack_burt0n2755d ago

lol its one of the best games of this gen.

theunleashed642755d ago (Edited 2755d ago )

i disagree infamous felt fresh and is an amazing game in it's own right. the story is awesome from the beginning to the end and the powers are fun to use.

BlackTar1872755d ago

im with you i loved Infamous one of my top fav. for this gen

theafroman2755d ago

Sucker Punch I love you and I agree with you. infamous was a good game but not great,I know you're aiming for the sky with infamous 2 and I know you will achieve it.
