Bike messenger Cole MacGrath receives a call to open a package he is transporting which results in a massive explosion that kills everyone within 6 blocks of Empire City. Cole wakes up at the center of a crater with the superhuman ability to control electricity. Now in a city under quarantine, power conduits are rising up to take control of the people. You, as Cole, must now make a choice. Do you use your powers for the greater good, making sacrifices along the way to set the people free; or do you pursue power, no matter the cost, so that you may rise up as the true "Demon of Empire City"?

Did You Know?


Though Sucker Punch productions could have opted to request the necessary funds from Sony to increase the team size and finish the game in two years, producer Brian Fleming noted that Sucker Punch's iteration-based development approach worked better with a smaller team size. See more »

Sucker Punch's Excellent Entry Into The Next-Gen Consoles
12 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sucker Punch was well known for making the family friendly Sly Cooper series for the Play Station 2, but for the Play Station 3 they went in an entirely different direction and made Infamous. The story is about a bike courier named Cole MacGrath who lives in the fictional metropolis of Empire City. The game starts when an explosion levels the entire city and a quarantine is placed leaving the citizens to deal with a plague and new gang members with exceptional powers given to them from the blast. But Cole has gained powers too. He now has power over electricity and has vowed to master his powers and stop the gangs from taking over the city. As the game starts you are given the option of being good or evil. And this is where the real excellence of Infamous starts. Each choice you make affects yourself, the city, and the story. For example, in the first mission if you choose to share an emergency drop of food with the people you'll be praised, but if you choose to keep it all to yourself you'll be scorned. In addition to the main storyline, there are many side-quests that can be taken and some of these involve the same karmic choices between good and evil. Some of these are repetitive but they aren't repetitive to the point where they aren't fun to play. All the karmic choices in the game offer multiple playthroughs as both good and evil, with evil giving you more power but also deals with more destructive consequences and good powers give you more control over electricity. Infamous is incredibly fun to play, without getting too much into the main plot I can say that the game-play is near perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better superhero game from Sucker Punch. This game may lag in certain points but it is none the less a great game for the PS3.
