inFamous inFinished [Aug. 8th, 2009|04:54 pm]
Finished playing through inFamous by Sucker Punch Productions (the makers of Sly Cooper). Good game, really enjoyed it. It's an open-environment shooter with an apocalyptic-superhero sorta theme to it.

I find their games to be odd but creative and compelling. Plus really good play mechanics; the way their characters move is fantastic. The only thing I didn't like about this one was the boss battles which were generally frustrating and unfun.

If you want a more detailed review, check out Zero Punctuation.

So I finally finished playing through on the "good" side. The plot is... strange. Frustratingly, they're very much setting up for a sequel and there's a lot of stuff we don't find out. ...Now to play through as "evil" and see how it holds up. :D

So do I, believe me. :D

While this isn't the same style of game, it's another winner. And Cole's climbing moves are familiarly smooth. You almost can't see his tail. ;)

Oooh so wasn't just me that found Sly's tail flicking around a bit too....distracting sometimes in the game? ^.^ Hehe. I guess no plans for another game though. Might have to check out that other then!

the demo looked awesome, but i just picked up Force Unleashed for a mere $10...Infamous will be bought but I think it may need to wait till they lop $20 or so off.

I certainly won't argue that games are pricey these days, especially on consoles. I often wait and get them second-hand.
