What's the game about: From Sucker Punch, the makers of the Sly Cooper games, comes Infamous, a third-person action game in which you play the role of a man who discovers his superpowers as you progress through the game and ultimately becomes a fantastic superhero or badass supervillain -- or both.
What's new for E3: Sony revealed the game for the very first time at its E3 2007 press conference, and you can watch the trailer to get a sense of the game's fantastic style and dark mood.
What we like: One of the interesting aspects of Infamous will be in exploring the good and evil that can come from having superpowers. As the quote from Abraham Lincoln in the trailer states ("Nearly all men can stand adversity...if you want to test a man's character, give him power."), the game will allow you to become either evil and destructive or honorable and helpful. The visuals and dark atmosphere also look incredibly promising.
SCREENS: Click the image above to check out all Infamous screens.
What we dislike: The super abilities and open-world gameplay sound a heck of a lot like Crackdown, but considering we've seen so little of Infamous so far, it's tough to really find fault with that.
