    inFAMOUS 2 is as solid as the original game if not more-so. Sucker Punch has nailed the superhero formula and created what could be the perfect superhero simulation for any platform. This game is the perfect way to scratch that desire in your imagination to be more than human...

    inFAMOUS 2 is another strong example of a super-hero game done right, and serves as a great example that sequels can expand on the original formula without being derivative.

    Whether you're a fan of the first inFAMOUS or new to the series, the amount of gameplay and riveting story should please all. A few small tweaks to the Move controls would go a long way in improving the overall feel of the game but an absolutely fantastic and worthwhile title nonetheless.

    Complaints aside, inFAMOUS 2 makes huge strides in almost every facet of development. Story and character, combat, environment, enemy AI, the powers, and visual polish all receive an upgrade in this iteration.

    It no doubt has several minor flaws, but is otherwise a fun sequel that clearly understands the weaknesses of the original and addresses them all.

    If you were a fan of the original Infamous, you should absolutely love Infamous 2. While it really doesn't do a lot to really push the game into new territory, it also doesn't try to fix a formula that isn't broken. Terrific presentation values, a long campaign, and tons of replayability round out a very solid title; but before you venture to New Marais just make sure to play the original game first!

    The game's second half descends into a fiasco...One thing's for certain: if there's a great action game in Infamous 2, no one's actually built it yet.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This here is one of the best games ever made so far. infamous 2 joins the play station 3 line up to make it even greater and also joins the group of the most underrated games ever ,mi have played both infamous 1 and 2 and i can easily recommend the second over the first because simply it is better in every way its a huge improvement with much more powers and now the choice between being good or evil gives you totally different powers to use and the variety of the enemies makes this game an exciting experience from get go . the story is really good iv seen some people complaining but that'r not true sucker punch know what they are doing here with the story . in infamous 2 there's more focusing on characters and allies as u can find a different ally when you chose between good karma or evil karma and both powers are amazing and fun and unique .
    i highly recommend this game for any super hero games fan and it pains me to see this game getting this score only it deserves much more since u can beat it twice with totally different missions so this game has 2 great stories and 2 great different styles to play. and it has the best boss fights ever.

I have now taken my PS3 off the market and am hooked on this game. I played the 1st one and liked it. I love this one! This is a must buy! Expand

    I usually don't care about reviews, but GameSpot's 7.5 score has to be the worst score for a game this good.

    im about to finish it, amazing game, defently a 180c turn out on graphics and gameplay.
    infamous 2 needed a polish, on alot of things, and this game is clearly does the job.
    -More Living, Bigger City, best, you will spend like 3-4 hours or more by doing side mission/being in a city.
    -Gameplay & Graphics Improved By Alot, Seriously, as i mention.
    -But, there is alot of bugs in the game, like FPS drops, camera problems, and more, and another dissapointment was the AMP, your melee weapon, 90% of the time you will not have any space to fight with it, and if so - you will get kicked in the ass.

    PS dont listen to DEATHSMILES, another xbox ****
