Above: Mitch Krpata reads the Metacritic page for inFamous, immediately after scoring it a 5.0/10.
It's a little tradition of mine that after finishing my own review, I pop on over to Metacritic and see what everyone else has to say. The Metacritic page for inFamous, besides giving me the increasingly familiar "I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!" feeling, contains this gem from GameFocus:
The overall quality of the game is not as high as I expected because I love the Sly Cooper games but as the first game this generation from Sucker Punch it makes this a must buy for PS3 owners. Just do not expect anything stellar or new in terms of gameplay, as we have seen much this game has to offer before and done slightly better.Their score? 90.
Metacritic, by the way, once declined to include the Phoenix's reviews in their aggregates.
