    This game comes out tomorrow, and it is a much touted exclusive to the console.... and it looks like so much fun.

    Tony Hawk meets GTA meets Assassins Creed meets Dead Rising..... yeah, that sounds like just a good ole time.

    Pulling a nice 83 on Metacritic, but what catches my attention is that the big outlets are showering it with praise:

    IGN: 9/10
    Polygon: 9/10
    Joystiq: 5/5
    Wired: Finally a reason to buy XBOX ONE (No score).
    Eurogamer – 8/10
    Videogamer – 6/10
    US Gamer – 4.5/5
    Destructoid – 8.5/10
    Techno Buffalo – Buy
    Hardcore Gamer – 4/5
    Games Radar – 4/5
    GameSpot – 8/10
    The Escapist – 4/5
    GamesBeat – 85/100
    GameInformer – 9.25/10
    Kotaku – Yes

    It looks like a rip off of Infamous from the commercials. But Imfamous was one of my favorite games and part three on PS4 wasn't very good.

    I don't have TV, so I haven't seen a ton of the commercials, just some of the previews from gaming sites... so the whole thing is very fresh to me.

    Rip off is way too harsh. It looks like Xbox did Infamous correct for next gen. PS4 rushed out their console exclusive.

    I didn't get that impression playing it - that is was trying too hard.

    I still love it. It isn't addictive to me like some games, but I boot it up regularly and grind around and blow stuff up. It is pretty great, and I'm surprised that it is getting some of its feedback like the video above.

    It would be a mistake to miss it on the X1

    He is always an asshole. Even to the games he likes.

    From my research (asking some friends) the ones who played Infamous don't like it that much and the ones that haven't love it.

    I loved Infamous. Got it free after the play station network ****up a few years ago and played it through quite a few times. Lot of fun.
