Seriously, this Tom Mc Shea is the worst reviewer ever! This guy shows no passion and makes a game that is really worth the 9.0 score it got looks like a crap game! Fire him or let him do some other jobe other than reviews! for thesake of us!
While the game is fun i found it too way to hard to get through. some of the missions got me so frustrated i wanted to break my controller. Not tot mention how enemies can snipe you from a block away with pin point accuracy.. using a machine gun, not simper rifle, mind you. THe only good thing isa got the game for free after the PSN hackig problem where Sony gave out free games to PS3 owners, because even now at the price of around $20, it's still not worth it. too hard and frustrating of a game, and from the demo alone, the second game isn't much easier. i give it a 3.5/10.0
I'd give it a 5/10 for average. The game runs well and the combat is enjoyable, but the repetitive missions structure, terrible enemy AI, and black and white morality system made the game boring for me. There's also not much to do in the world when you compare it to something like Saints Row or GTA
"...you quickly get more powerful and exciting moves which make fighting and an absolute 'blast'." Pun intended? XD
I think that GameCritics harsher sounding review on Infamous (giving it a 6.5 out of 10) is how I feel, compared to the other reviews here. It was just lacking in various areas, such as the story, whose cut scenes were really brief. In many of the side missions, when you talked to the strangers, they just told you in 10 seconds or less what to do and you went on your way. How realistic is that? C'mon, Sucker Punch. You could've done much better than this. And GameSpot and others somehow praise its storyline? Please. The characters are really forgettable, as far as things go. They're been better examples of moral systems in games, particularly in Pen and Paper RPGs like Baldur's Gate 1&2, or Planescape: Torment. The consequences are far and few between that I hardly have any incentive to progress further through the game (even if the powerups do seem pretty cool). I'm sorry, but as a gamer who is heavy on storytelling, this just doesn't cut it for me. If it were a little bit better and took its time to explain each mission better and why I'm doing whatever I'm doing, then I'd see that more as a passable reason to finish the game. Sadly, the story is even below decent or average. And bear in mind that a Metacritics score is more of an indication of how well the critics enjoyed a game, NOT the gamers themselves; gamers are way more diverse than that, especially when not everyone reads reviews or goes out and researches the different kinds of games out there.

@Zero Kull You sound like a 10 year old if you think that a game sucks because its not violent enough for your morbid fantasies.
@danjones2k9 infamous is alot better than prototype. prototype is basicly the incredible hulk game that came out a few years ago
I find it very funny how Infamous was released more or less at the same time as Prototype, yet it just looks like a cheap copy.
People, if you want to write your opinion, then there's a reason why Gamespot allows you to write reviews.
F***ing piece of sh!t, i am afraid of heights and this game is making it worse lmao xD. This game isn't that good, if you're like 10 or 12 maybe yes, but for older gamers like me, there is nothing new, the stages are to dark, you can't see what's coming when you're under the city and even on easy is hard not to get kill xD
Though I knew that it got 9.0 rating I never thought it would be a great game until I played it after getting free at PSN. And I have to say that this game is much more than just mindless action. You will love this game. Also this game is not even short so that the fun will last for a long time. If you are considering it, please get it. This game is pure fun. Story will always keep you interested and action is just superb. I will surely play part 2 after finishing this one.
I am downloading this as one of the free games, it would take me like 4 days lol, crappy internet speed xD Does anyone can tell me if this game has some kind of online multiplayer?
I've played some of the first "inFamous" and i have to say I have had a blast with this fun title! A great PS3 exclusive, and an interesting superhero game in general!
I just got this as one of my free games and I'm really enjoying it :) It would look a lot better if it was made for my pc, but graphics aren't everything.
never really wanted to play this. But now that i've actually started playing, it turned out to be one of my favorite games of all time! :D
I almost bought this game too, what a good amount of money I saved me. :) Excellent gane though. Just amazing.
haha im glad im not the only one that came to Gamestop.com to look at this game from the PSN store welcome back program. Thank you Gamespot for this and all the reviews!
I just completed this game! It is good but it can get a bit dull sometimes but the story is great plus the characters are amazing. The animation in this game is brilliant plus the graphics are not that bad! Maybe it is because I am a bit behind on game playing but I liked them. The city had so much detail to it! The controls can get glitchy sometimes. I enjoyed this!!
Why the heck would some one want to play a game where the star character looks like a wimpy red-neck white cracker that doesn't work out???
yeah borrowed from friend was shocked now that its free hell yeah!!! the graphics do kinda suck and the gameplay was kinda???? i had more fun playing Crackdown on 360
The first time I played this game I knew I would never buy it or rent it. Now that it'll be free I guess I'll play it.
I rented this game last month and I just couldn't get into it, but now its gonna be free so I will give it another chance.
@rafaelkhan I liked his review, so I don't care about what you want.
