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...
The new adventure of Cole McGrath is even better than the previous one. The new powers, abilities and the possibility to make your own missions and share them with the world, works great. A great PlayStation 3 exclusive.
inFamous 2 improves upon the issues of inFamous, and elevates the game to one of the best, if not the best, exclusive on PS3. Cole having more personality is definitely a big improvement over the first. The combat has been more refined with Cole now having a weapon, and the good and evil route giving him more variety to effects. The story also have bigger stakes, and both endings deliver a powerful emotional punch. Having mission creator was a great way to integrate some online components to a strong single player game. I would love to see this game remastered, or ported to modern consoles.
inFAMOUS 2 is a great sequel to the first game, and truly makes me like this series for existing. The story itself is far more interesting, the powers are far better this time around, and the characters even have more depth. This is certainly an IP I want to see more of.
The first title established him and set our expectations for Sucker Punch's universe, but the sequel expands it into a highly entertaining, thrilling, and responsive action game bursting with stout combat.
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.
Ultimately, if you loved inFamous, then you're going to love inFamous 2. If you had doubts about the franchise, then inFamous 2 probably isn't going to change your mind. inFamous 2 is a good game, and definitely one of the better ones in the superhero genre, but it feels too similar to its predecessor and there are too many issues that keep it from being the electrifying knockout Sucker Punch wanted it to be.
Easily tied with Second Son for the best game in the series. Infamous 2 boasts many improvements over it's predecessor that you can only truly appreciate if you've played through the first game. Not to mention the welcome addition of in engine cutscenes that allow for better story telling than what was present in the first game.
This game was honestly a disappointment. I don't want to say it was horrible, but it was not good enough for me to finish it. The first Infamous was one of my favorite games, but this one just couldn't come close to comparison. Visually, it looked ok, what I'd expect. The music was also ok. The plot, was weak and poorly explained however. It seemed as if the characters were super shallow, as if somebody tried to give them personality but failed. In Infamous 1, the characters were non-existant, which was frankly better. Overall, the presentation ****. Game play wise, I think it was somewhat less than average. There was hype about feeling powerful, but I didn't feel powerful at all. The controls were a bit sticky but passable. I didn't like the boss battles either, they were very generic and uninteresting. Lastly, Cole moved too fast, and I found it difficult to control him properly. The game was one of the biggest disappointments ever.
I just hate this game. After the first cutscene it just drops you in with not enough explanation to what's going on. I also think the gameplay is just flat out garbage. I feel like the lightning bolts should be mapped to R2 and L2. I refuse to beat the second part.
