Infamous took the "real life" feel of films such as Batman Begins and X-Men and translated it into a video game perfectly. The plot is rationed out in such a way that a player turns into a superhero or supervillain without even realizing it.
Players assume the role of bike messenger Cole MacGrath, a survivor of an explosion caused by a device called the Ray Sphere. Emerging from the rubble with newly gain electrical powers Cole must choose between using his powers for good of evil as he explores the burned urban landscape.
Experience points and power leveling are gradual and well paced allowing a player to slip fully into the role of Cole and experience his growth.
Comic book style cut scenes and great graphics make this game a must play.
