GameSpot writes: "Every so often, a game comes and zaps you out of nowhere. Infamous is such a game, and we are surprised at how well the game seems to be shaping up. At E3 08, we caught up with Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch, and he walked us through a number of the features we should expect to see in their upcoming superhero action game.
Infamous's hero is Cole, a regular guy who is the only survivor of an explosion that levels six blocks of the sprawling fictional metropolis of Empire City. Cole doesn't emerge unscathed, however--he soon discovers that he has been blessed (or cursed, depending on how you look at it) with electric-based superpowers. As Cole, where you go from here is up to you: Infamous is an open-world game in which you can use your powers to either enrich the lives of Empire city's population, or wreak havoc on them. Essentially, the public is your audience, and the city is your theater. You choose how to entertain or humiliate the citizenry."
