To Every Story There Is A Beginning
It has long been a dream of mine to wield the awesome power of lightning at my fingertips, so when Sucker Punch came out with the original Infamous, I knew I had to have that game! With eager anticipation I awaited its arrival and then I played it for hours on end. I loved every minute of it! When it was finally over, I desperately wanted another installment. Well, Sucker Punch heard my prayers and sent forth Infamous 2.
For those not familiar with the original, our protagonist Cole MacGrath begins the first game by waking up in the middle of a blast crater in Empire City. Everything within 5 city blocks of him as been destroyed by an explosion. Once he is extricated from the crater by his best friend Zeke and nursed back to health, he finds that he has lightning powers. Throughout the course of the game, you discover why he and others now have powers, why he survived an explosion that killed thousands of other people, who planned it, and why. Near the middle of the game (beware possible spoilers) you find out that the antagonist, Kessler, is preparing you to face an even bigger foe, "The Beast".
