    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 game is very well made and is even better than its prequel. The gameplay is very lively and intense, and has great replay value. Although at times the story may seem slightely weak. It completes the story on Cole McGrath. The only disappointment is the devastating ending which is the death of cole McGrath Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Just beat this game a few weeks ago and I enjoyed every minute of it. Although I only did one of ending (the good side), Cole dying at the end was a shocker. I'm sure they could bring him back somehow for another installment, but it was nice to see that kind of end to a game for a change. Expand
