Newsarama reviews inFAMOUS & discusses William Harms' work on game
Not a day goes by that I don’t hear a joke about the PlayStation 3 being “a great Blu-ray player... and not much else.” Yes, these jokes are often from fanboys of one brand or another, but the greater gaming populace is under this impression as well. The only way for Sony to change this image is to have some really fantastic games available for their system. Multiplatform games are important, of course, but they are just that: you can play them on other systems. The real key, then, is for great exclusive content, games you can’t play anywhere else than on the PlayStation 3. Luckily, Sucker Punch Studios, after a long career with the PS2, decided to stick by Sony’s side and come to their rescue with inFAMOUS.
The other surprising standout, again necessary for the game to rise above its many peers, is the story. The story was written by William Harms (Impaler Comic, Supreme Commander game).
