Who doesn’t love being a super hero? The powers, the gadgets, the spandex, the babes! In comic book form (or more recently, in film) they wield incredible powers and cut a swath of destruction through the puny henchmen of whatever super villan of the week appears on the radar. So how come being a super hero in a GAME is so difficult to pull off? Other than Batman: Arkham Asylum I can’t think of a game that truly makes you feel like the savior of a city. Infamous, even more so than Batman, captures this feeling due to its great sense of scale and strong main character. The fact that the universe of Infamous is an original IP lets the game build the hero, villains, and setting in such a way almost perfectly suited to gaming.
