    Someone explain to me this game

    I'm on day 10 normal difficulty mode

    [possible spoilers?]

    So you're a guy that wakes up 5 years after he's died to be a super monster that's... what? supposed to come awake 5 years later and kill all his creators?

    I mean, the game is fun as hell wrecking destruction on everything you come across, but I feel like something really important is missing. I don't feel like anything I do actually helps anything at all. I'm just pretty much killing every single thing that comes into my way and somehow that's the main characters objective or something?

    Just today I started getting 2000+ civilians killed per count (whenever the score pops up) :bowdown: I dunno why, the civilians have no AI whatsoever and just freely allow themselves to get run over by tanks :rofl:

    I dunno, something feels like it's missing, big time. The gameplay is top notch, I'm still getting used to the controls and whatnot but the gameplay is fine, the difficulty is fine (I die all the damn time, but it autosaves a lot for just such problems so I don't mind at all), but I feel like there is something somewhere keeping me from feeling like I'm doing anything useful.

    I feel I'm going to be the same exact way :o

    I keep skipping the web of intrigue things, I guess I'll know absolutely none of the story :o I know I can go back and check, but hell, I just want to blow shit up and destroy helicopters.

    One thing I don't get it how ambitious the enemy is with their helicopters. I mean, when you get the whip hand those suckers go down quick. If I were a general I wouldn't send my multimillion dollar helicopters after an undead bastard that could destroy them as he's flying from roof to roof :o

    Awesome game though, it reminds me of the SNES days. Sometimes the story just doesn't matter dick, the gameplay is all that matters when it really comes down to it.

    I would not play this game on the PC without a 360 controller though, I couldn't imagine this being asdw friendly :o

    It's fun. It's not a game for it's enriching story and character development.

    Emo?
    When was the last time an Emo kid turned his arm into a whip to use to slice people in half? When has an Emo kid ever hijacked a helicopter, Mutilated zombies and gone toe-to-toe with monsters?
    Boy, You dumb.

    .

    They'll have no excuses if it isn't, prototype and infamous both showed how to make an amazing superhero game.

    I finished the game and had only completed like 54% web of intrigue. Now I just go around and don't really have any motivation to play in free mode.

    For being a more modest budget title, I enjoy the polish of the CGI videos and shit.

    meh, if you pay attention to the story (and do the web of intrigue stuff) i'd say that prototype's story is pretty much just as good. and after playing prototype the main character in infamous felt like a pansy, but it was still a pretty fun game :o
