inFAMOUS Collection Review

ESRB Rating: T
Number of Players: 1
Genre: Action
Publisher: SCEA
Developer: Sucker Punch
Release Date: August 28th, 2012

Parent Talk: Featuring blood, drug references, moderate language, the use of alcohol, sexual themes and violence the T for teen rating is bang on.  inFAMOUS has never featured excessive violence and gore, but some sensitive subject matter clearly aims this set at those at least 13 years old.

Plays Like: The inFAMOUS series has the most in common with Activision’s Prototype.  Both are open-world games where players use their abilities to interact with NPCs and the environment in crazy and insane ways.  As players progress and earn new abilities the open-world becomes their jungle gym.

Review Basis: Much like the other collections Sony has released this year, these games have are more or less exactly as they were when originally released, albeit with extra goodies thrown in for good measure.  As such, a very simple look through all the material offered is all that was necessary for the review.

inFAMOUS 2: http://www.projectcoe.com/2011/06/10/infamous-2-review/

To make this package more enticing Sony’s added the Halloween-themed inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood DLC to the mix.  Not only that, but they’ve added extra missions, additional character costumes, power-ups and weapon styles.  That’s a wide assortment of content for the low asking price of $39.99

These two games received some of the highest scores of any PS3 exclusives, typically averaging well over 9/10 from most media outlets, including this one right here.  Both offer some of the very best open-world gameplay you will ever experience and shouldn’t be missed by anyone.  The stories, power-ups and feeling of freedom offered has yet to be matched.  These games really are incredible.

Final Say:

The price is right, the extra goodies are excellent and the games themselves have aged perfectly.  If you just bought a PS3, this is one collection you can buy with confidence.

Score: 9/10
