PlayStation Official Magazine UK give InFamous 9/10

Submitted by on Tuesday, 5 May 20096 Comments

infamousSubscribers of the PlayStation Official Magazine in the UK received their latest edition in the post this morning, with the headline story being their review of forthcoming superhero-em-up, inFamous.

The review, which pitches inFamous as ‘shockingly good’, runs across six pages of the June 2009 edition of the magazine, and features a number of useful hints and tips that will help players when the game hits our streets before the end of May.

For those of you who have either been living under a rock, or haven’t visited our extensive Games Database, inFamous is an upcoming sandbox-style PlayStation 3 exclusive. Being developed by Sucker Punch Productions, it is their first original IP since the Sly Cooper series.

With inFamous, you play the character Cole McGrath who receives superpowers thanks to an explosion in the gritty Empire City, which @OPM_UK describe as ‘San Francisco-like’.

What you do with those powers is then largely up to you. Do you become hero or villain? Or as they put it in the review, “Will you become a glowing saviour or an ashen-faced monster firing bolts of evil?”. They always did have a way with words…

The review features the usual ‘second opinion’ from Editor-in-Chief Tim Clark plus details on the best sights to see in Empire City, great tips for rescuing hostages in good or evil ways and some awe-inspiring screenshots.

The latest version of the PlayStation Official Magazine UK will hit retail shelves soon, so be sure to check it out.
