Game reviews are confusing to me at times. IGN gave Infamous 2 a 9/10. I can say without a doubt that Infamous 2 deserved that score. Great game. One of my favorites for PS3. But, Infamous Second Son is in a league far above Infamous 2. The story so far (I'm 7 hours in) is at least as good as Infamous 2. Technically, the best game I've ever played (I'm not a PC gamer). And IGN gave this game an 8.7/10. Still a great score, but lower than the weaker Infamous 2. Don't understand it. Maybe they had different reviewers. If Infamous 2 was a 9/10, then Second Son getting a 9.5 sounds right.

Opinions are different from person to person, and that includes reviewers. Where you see a 9.5 near perfect game I played it at my boyz house today and could see some bad spots. The ai was pretty poor, the game got repetitive pretty quick, and it just didn't really add anything new. Where you see an 8.7 too low I see it too high. That's just how these things work.

Well of course these are opinions. That's why I usually don't let reviews impact my purchasing decisions. But there aren't many people that would argue that Infamous 2 isn't as good as Second Son. Not sure if you've actually played the games, but I played all 3, and Second Son is CLEARLY the best. And it got a lower score from IGN than its predecesor.

My opinion is, games are getting lower scores because the game doesn't contain things people may have hoped for, instead of reviewing it for what it is. For instance, you read alot of comments now saying they didn't do anything new. Well, if they have a winning formula, why reinvent the game just because we have new consoles? Many would look at the Infamous 2 score and think it's a better game. Although it's a great game, it's clearly not better.
