Similar to Prototype...
This review is from: inFAMOUS Collection PlayStation 3
Pros: A mostly open world where you are first limited to one of three islands. Later you can access all three islands as they open up.
Cons: The game lacks severely in it's platforming. In prototype you could scale large buildings fairly easily and quickly, here however you are forced into tedious latching onto windows, ledges, pipes, protrusions. This is greatly increased as you are set to get collectable 'blast shards' which would increase your ability to hold more electricity to power your moves. Worse is every time you jump or willingly let go of a ledge, you immediately grab onto the next or nearest one making going down an utter pain. Platforming is often used to railroad you through an area, like a maze-like shipyard or a small hobo village. This artificially inflates the length of the game in order to beat it rather than adding to it, and in my opinion sucks. True you can skate across power lines, cables and railroad tracks, but only a third of the buildings or so support this, making it tedious if you don't see an easy path from one building to another, and end up taking a few minutes to climb a single building to get to an objective.
Other Thoughts: The annoyances in the game are enough that I've lost interest in trying to beat it, and have shelved the game. True I haven't played the second game or the DLC provided code; It's too annoying that I don't want to anymore and I wish I didn't buy it.
