pretty good score..keep em coming.

DarkCharizard_2274d ago

hmmm... seems like it will have around 85-90 average(meta) score.

BrianG2274d ago

Given the way good, great, and awesome games have been rated as of late, that score would be just fine for me.

Strange_Evil2274d ago

Who gives a sh!t... It's a great score none the less.

JoySticksFTW2274d ago

It could get a two, and I'd still get it

The first game was crazy good, but the devs said they thought it was an ok game and are making it better

what?! sold!!

If I liked what the the devs considered an ok, I'm gonna love inFamous 2 :)

"Excellent control and fun in every situation"

That's all I needed to know.

i don't think infamous 2 will get scores lower than an 8/b+

fluffydelusions2274d ago (Edited 2274d ago )

It's bound to happen. Even great games get crap scores on some sites desperate for the hits. Seems like a solid game from what I've seen so far.

NukaCola2273d ago

If it gets a 7 or less, it'll probably come from Gamekult.

I just really want to see what Edge Magazine give this game after they gave Crackdown 2 an 8.

finnhima2274d ago (Edited 2274d ago )

They (being edge magazine) said that if infamous 2 was better than crackdown 2 that they would admit fault or something like that. I read it in their magazine. And they had the NERVE to give that horrible crackdown game an 8 out of 10.

news4geeks2274d ago

yeah that's why I think they gave Crackdown 2 an 8 just to cover their ass. Although we've only seen snippets of gameplay I think it will be quite ridiculous to suggest that Crackdown 2 is as good as infamous 2.

There was a good article that showed how Edge always rated 360 exclusives higher than the meta average and ps3 exclusives lower. I still like them though because they are the only website with the balls to rate games below 8/10.

Edge never hide their bias nature. You can always depend on them to nitpick a Sony exclusive to death. You can set your clock by it. Edge incoming score for IF2, a 7 or 6 out of 10. Why? It's a PS3 exclusive, that's why.

rob60212274d ago

I still don't understand why Metacritic hasn't kicked Edge out of their ratings. It's probably quite the opposite, they likely give Edge a lot of weight with their magic formula. As long as Metacritic includes Edge, Metacritic is as much of a joke as Edge is.

DevilishSix2274d ago

This game is going to be great. I platinumed the first so the trophy reward perks that carry over from 1 to 2 is a smart move by sucker punch. For all those that have not played the first but want to play the second, I suggest you get hopping. The story carries over and so does rewards.
