We Got Game – inFamous Demo
**Sorry I’ve been lacking in updates as of late – Family Business. Now that that is settled, let’s take care of some business, shall we?**
PSN recently released the inFamous demo. Playing it, I realized how much over the past year, I’ve been spoiled with such games as “Assassin’s Creed”, “Grand Theft Auto IV”, “Metal Gear Solid 4”, “Killzone 2” and “LittleBigPlanet” to name a few. inFamous would’ve been an impressive and maybe even top tier game a year ago. But now a year too late, we’ve seen wonderous jumps in the video game realm and inFamous’ demo doesn’t give the game justice for all it entails. That doesn’t mean it’s not fun, though.
The levels (yeah, a demo with more than one level – whodathunkit?) basically give you action and familiarize you with the controls and actions. You can basically recharge anywhere and you’ll be fighting the gangs en masse. Remember to recharge because they will come at you in waves and the firepower is heavy. The screen will begin to go gray as Cole loses power which means his health is deteriorating. A couple of quick recharges will bring you back to health quickfast.
Unless you haven’t been following the info of the game, inFamous gives you, the player, the option of making Cole good or evil, depending on your actions. Some powers are only accessed through selfless acts while others are accessed only by evil deeds. In the demo, I was already assigned “Hero”. To truly enjoy how the game is to be played, I would’ve enjoyed the option of whether I could go total badass or be the savior.
inFamous’ demo is more to acclamate you to the general gameplay and controls than the full idea nor does it give you the full enjoyment the game will. What it does give you is a taste of what it to come when you play the full game.
