Comment

InFamous is an entertaining game about superheroes/supervillains  that tries to highlight the election between being good or evil.

The superpowers part is well implemented: the game is not afraid of giving you a great power level and the according menaces, and it offers a big city to explore in very original ways (“surfing” high-tension cables or electric train rails). However, the “dual” morality is very weak, with some very forced moral choices and some very irrelevant ones.

The history is interesting, but the motivations of some characters will have more or less sense depending of your moral choices.

A great platform game for Wii, with few innovations but very successful in doing what it sets to do. The right level of difficulty (high, without becoming despairingly so), enough variation between levels, and many secrets to find.

It is a very good game to play with little children, who can in difficult spots be picked up by Kong (and, even better, that helps Kong too).
