Sucker Punch Production created Infamous, of the most underated gems in gaming. A game that allows you to use your ability for good or evil.
The series was well known, critically acclaimed and sold well How was it underrated?
I agree, it did well enough to get sequels.
Def not underrated.. First one was very fun, but the second one was much better in every way. I loved second Son but infamous 2 is my favorite
You don’t even see Prototype fans going around saying their franchise was underrated
@bouzebal Same here. Really liked 1 and loved 2 but there was something about Second Son that fell short for me. Never was sure why. Still good enough on it's own though.
I think it's the human AI, and tad repetitive side missions.. Great game though, so early in console life to get something so gorgeous looking
Infamous has a metacritic of 85, the sequel has 83 and Second Son has 80. How the hell is it underrated?
I think the author's use of "underrated" here is incorrect. The inFamous games have received good reviews and scores. Unless the author meant to say that the games need some sort of a come back (for next generation), then it makes no sense to call them underrated.
I don't think it's underrated, but when you are a studio along side Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, and Santa Monica it's hard to stand out.
Still remember that first epic tower climbing experience in the first one on PS3.
Oh my old ass forgot about that until you mentioned it. That was great. Reminded me a bit of Wizards and Warriors. A bit.
Infamous is not underrated.
I would love a new Infamous game
Would've really like a remaster of the first two
"The game was well received by the gaming press. It was praised for many of its elements, including the implementation of Cole's powers and climbing ability, and the game's mission structure. In June 2010, Game Informer stated Infamous sold nearly two million copies. IGN awarded Infamous Best Story, and Game of the Year and Best Acting at the 2009 Golden Game Awards. Infamous was also nominated for four other Golden Game Awards, including Best PlayStation 3 Game, Best Graphics, Best Independent Game, and Studio of the Year. On September 4, 2010, Infamous was ranked fifth in "The Top 25 PlayStation 3 Games" of IGN, stating that "when Infamous was released on PlayStation 3 in the spring of 2009, it quickly became clear that this was unlike any sandbox game anyone had ever played" (Wiki)
All these 10 reasons this 10 reasons that are getting boring now. Infamous isn't an underated gem. A title that [email protected] looked down on and didn't sell very well yet remained a good game is what I'd call an underated gem. There's tons of them this gen. Re infamous both PS3 games sold well and had an expansive dlc. Infamous PS4 and infamous first light sold very well and I'm sure a sequel is on its way I wouldn't call it an underated gem as all of them was looked on favourable with good rating and was loved by gamers. What a silly article...I think the author doesn't know what he's talking about
Started playing Second Son for the first time. The game is very enjoyable. It scratches that superhero itch. The world is beautifully created and the story is engaging. My only complaint would be the random framerate drops, but the positives far outweigh this issue.
A remaster of the first two games would put a smile in me ugly face
underrated not, maybe forgotten and worth paying attention too ? Yes
The particle effects were amazing in the last installment.
And that neon lighting. Even on my TV that doesn't support HDR, it looked awesome.
loved the neon. I usually never say this but, someone down voted me saying i liked the particle effects in SS? what an odd person.
I hope they make another one one day and with Cole.
Second son was so dope. wish it was longer
Yes? 😉 😎
I loved the first 2 games but Second Son just didn't hit me like the first two did although I thought First Light was amazing.
I know I'll get downvoted... but, I could not get into the first 2 infamous. I live in seattle, so I remember thinking the infamous second son looked ok. Then I bought it when it came out on that day and was hooked! Beat it in a week, then I went back at got all the trophies. First light was good too. Infamous is in my top three game's of this generation for me. Dont ask the other two lol.
If they ever make another one I hope they inject a good dose of moral ambiguity in the choices you'll have to make. The biggest problem with the series' morality system is that things are too black and white -- either you're a saint if you pick the good choice or you're Hitler himself if you go with the bad one.
Underrated? This was like a playstation hit, second sound may not have been the best one but it was expected big time.
