Storyline

Bike messenger Cole MacGrath receives a call to open a package he is transporting which results in a massive explosion that kills everyone within 6 blocks of Empire City. Cole wakes up at the center of a crater with the superhuman ability to control electricity. Now in a city under quarantine, power conduits are rising up to take control of the people. You, as Cole, must now make a choice. Do you use your powers for the greater good, making sacrifices along the way to set the people free; or do you pursue power, no matter the cost, so that you may rise up as the true "Demon of Empire City"?

One of the best PS3-exclusive games ever!
23 June 2009 | by zZenoXxSee all my reviews

I bought InFamous a few weeks ago and i was amazed by the depth of the game. It's so fun to just run around and blast bad guys off the rooftops. The power of the character is amazing, as the story evolves you get more and more powers.

The story in the game is also great and the gameplay never gets dull.

One of the most amazing things about the game is the paths you can choose. To be good or evil. If you want to be a 'superhero' or a 'villan'. It's not really the first game to do the whole "dark side vs light" but it nailed it nonetheless.

To sum it all up. This game is awesome! If you haven't bought it yet, do it!
