    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.

The concept is the same as the first one but yet it pushes forward on the typical superhero genre by bringin a charcter who outside or a cartoon series would not be though of as an interesting character. The powers you get are amazing and the story is very well driven and captivating. It is a must for anyone who would consider themselves a superhero nerd or fans of open world games Expand

    inFAMOUS 2 is one of the best open world games you will play this gen. The graphics, physics, voices and story make it a easy contender for GOTY 2011.

    People usually say that the sequel isn't as good as the original, but this sequel is bigger and better. It's nothing less than what I've comePeople usually say that the sequel isn't as good as the original, but this sequel is bigger and better. It's nothing less than what I've come to expect from games developer sucker punch.The story is just as interesting as the first game and features a surprising twist that few will see coming. You have a new environment, new characters, new enemies and amazing new powers. They even added an amazing new creative tool allowing you to create your own levels and let people play them online. You can't really fault this game. the only reason i didn't give it a ten is because of some glitches that occurred (although there will probably be a patch to fix this). Overall this is great for fans of the first game and for fans of action games and sandbox games. Expand
