Infamous is a Adventuring game available on the OST PS3. It can be played in Thirdperson Singleplayer modes.
Infamous is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Infamous can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
Infamous can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on inFamous for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
The InFamous soundtrack struggles to rise above its loud atmospheric nature and is initially a harsh listen. But push past the brash beats and random percussion and you'll find a pulsating work of impressive hues. This is a unique and ultimately rewarding soundtrack.
My initial thoughts of the Infamous soundtrack were not positive. Random beats, fragmented melodies and a lack of recognisable themes made listening awkward and uncomfortable. Only after repeated listens did the real quality and individual nature of the soundtrack reveal itself and it has quickly become one of my favourites.
Telling a deep and involving story in a videogame can be a tough ask at the best of times. Telling one in an open-world environment is even harder and Infamous struggles to make use of its well-realised world and falls short of its potential. Although the core game mechanics and platforming aspects are fun with a lot of interesting and memorable moments, I never felt sympathy for any of the characters or found them believable.
This isnít to say I found Infamous dull or didnít enjoy it. From the very moment the game starts with a huge explosion in Empire City, it shows some impressive visual set-pieces. The nature of starting the game in a crater of your own making, with strange electrical powers and a devastated city at your feet is dramatic and enticing. Iíve always wanted a superhero genesis game with this amount of content and polish. Having a new character free from any graphic novel lore or canonical restrictions was refreshing and gave me hope that it would have a storyline to match.
Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing inFamous. I hope you like my video game reviews that are not hand drawn - but written one mouse stroke at a time.
InFamous is a great game. I have to admit that this game was under my radar, and I almost missed out on playing it. I say that because I have a strong feeling you may have looked at this game in the very same way. With that in mind, I have just a few things to say.
