Whilst it's comparative cousin Prototype was, in essence, a free-roaming, superpower-boosted murder simulated, inFamous strives for something a little more refined, although the games are pretty damn similar when all's said and done. Telling the story of Cole MacGrath, a bike courier caught in the middle of a devastating explosion who awakens to find himself imbued with electrical superpowers, inFamous' sees you leaping around the fictional Empire City and unravelling an intricate story in a sandbox game that's just a little bit more special than many of the bland copycats out there.
You can pick up a copy of inFamous for just £9.99 at the moment from GAME, which is a good £5 cheaper than next in line Amazon, who are selling it for £14.99.
Sucker Punch have created a great little game here, with a gripping story, well-drawn characters and a nifty little karma system. It looks great, plays great and sounds great too thanks to a cracking, atmospheric soundtrack from Amon Tobin.
Imagine Prototype plus a plot and a karma system and you've basically got the idea. An excellent game and well worth it at this price.
