Sparks fly wherever Cole, the hero of InFamous goes. It’s not because he’s a hit with the ladies but due to a freak accident that has left him with electricity coursing through his veins, nifty super powers and the ability to negotiate Empire City with ease. But what a city – ruined streets, hungry people and enemies galore all challenge Cole, not least because he has to make moral decisions aboutwhat he will do with his powers. Initially somewhat run of the mill, InFamous gains momentum, revealing a multilayered and complex title as entertaining as it is unexpected.
