Crackdown was pretty lame gameplay wise... all the missions were just "lock on to person X, hold R button." I loved its visual style though.

I actually enjoyed Crackdown a lot... yeah the lock on game play was pretty bad... but I just loved running around collecting all of the stuff and building myself up to be a monster that could pick up cars and throw it 8 miles while running 80 miles an hour and jumping off of a giant building. Was fun.

Driving around the world, crashing into ****, ramping off other ****, and running over bad guys was great fun. The various weapons were fun to use, too. Online co-op was also a blast, especially when both of us were at a pretty high level. It was also fun showing him how to unlock some of the driving achievements.

Yeah... I remember one time playing coop with a friend and he was driving a bus... so I just jumped on top of it and shot everything that moved while he was driving down the road. Man... making me want to play it again, but I let a friend borrow my copy .

The fun use of the powers just made me resent the game more, because none of the missions made you use your powers. Every "mission" was just to kill a slightly stronger than normal enemy, that stayed in a small area and never did anything but shoot at you and move around a bit.

If the missons made you use powers and stuff it would have been a lot better, or if they had any variety what-so-ever. If the shooting actually required skill of some kind, rather than a lock-on win button, it would have been a lot better.

I found the game to have a ton of potential and very little payoff. I guess if you're the type of person who never plays the story in a GTA game and just runs around causing mayhem it might have been better, but I expected more, especially with such a solid foundation.

Ok lets get back on topic for Infamous... IGN has their review. 9.2. Don't really have any complaints about the review, except that he gives the audio an 8.5 purely because of Coles gravelly voice. WTF? The soundtrack is awesome and the game sounds great... but the characters voice is gravelly, so it sucks?

I just don't like this recent idea that anything under a 9 is crap... taking off a point for a bad main character voice seems reasonable to me. An 8.5 is a great score. You might not agree the voice is bad, but reviews are OPINIONS.

Personally I don't like seeing numbers in reviews at all.
