Funny thing about the apocalypse: it hasn’t happened as of yet, but we all pretty much know what to expect based upon how it would come about. We all say “If society came crashing down I’d do such and such.” We all have pretty much decided whether we will be good or bad once the rules we follow no longer apply. The question is if it really did all come crashing down, would things go the way we planned? Enter Empire City, your standard New York City clone and the world of inFAMOUS, the first PS3 game from the makers of the Sly Cooper series. You are Cole MacGrath, your average everyday nobody with an average everyday job that is going nowhere. Suddenly everything changes and you are the center of attention. One has to ask, “Do I make the best of the situation or do I just take advantage of it and make things better for myself?” As you play through the game, almost everything you do involves a moral choice; choices that cumulatively shape your character and determine how you will progress. Imagine GTAIII with a conscience. You might think that sounds like no fun at all – but then you pick up this game and see just how wrong you are.
This guy gets beaten both physically and mentally and it shows in his face, in his behavior and even in his costume. Will you have what it takes to deal with The Joker and Harley Quinn, The Riddler, Bane, Killer Croc, Mr. Zsasz, Poison Ivy and the combined insanity of both Blackgate and Arkham Penitentiaries back to back? You really need to pick this game up and find out.
