Great game. I'm playing it again in anticipation for the sequel.

Spitfire_Riggz2710d ago

I liked the game it just got a wee bit repetitive. Just like Assassins Creed 1.

Istanbull2710d ago

inFamous was way better than AC1.

Quagmire2710d ago

LOL, Infamous definitely had repetition, and the parkour mechanics were balls compared to AC.

Fun game otherwise.

LarVanian2710d ago

inFamous 1 was nowhere near as repetitive as Assassins's Creed 1.

Spitfire_Riggz2710d ago

Not in the story, but at the end when I started taking over each city for the trophy the sub missions did get repetitive.

LarVanian2710d ago

Oh right, I understand your point now. I can see why people would have found some of the side-missions in inFamous to be a bit of a chore. (Sucker-Punch, please keep counter-surveillance missions out of inFamous 2)

The reason I didnt buy it myself (saw the whole game at a friends house) was because it was too limited for a free roam game. A huge city that all you can do is run through makes the game pretty slow. It would be more acessible if he could fly like static stock does. Now that its free ill get it for the easy platinum though.

you are in mistake my friend, although in this game you can't go to a strip club or a bar and play games or dance, but you are not just running around either.
pick the game and you'll see

nopunctuation2710d ago (Edited 2710d ago )

Oh im not saying you need to have strip clubs to make a free roam game good. Im just saying in the transportation department, the game is lacking a little. He cant steal cars or even fly (which he could do. Check out static shock and see how he flies). He is limited to running across the city or gliding on wires. Neither of these are very fast forms of transportation. But yeah, other than that the game was pretty good last time I played it. Offering it for free will be great marketing for infamous 2.

kane_13712710d ago

ummmm...well, I played through the game for a second time before writing this review.
first of all, he can't steal a car, let alone that there are very few cars that actually work in this game, because even if he sit in a car it will be overcharged by his body, they say it in the beginning of the game too.
plus, in fact transportation is pretty fast, train lines are super fast, cables too.
seeing isn't really enough you know...

Infamous is a game that should have sold more for the quality that has.
