Marooners' Rock Review: inFAMOUS 2 (PS3)

Adam writes: "Games featuring superheroes aren’t exactly new to video games. However, more often than not, those superheroes are the common comic fodder we see in comic book shops and in the movies. What made the original inFamous so incredible was not just the spectacular game play, but the creation of an original hero that felt new yet familiar. Cole McGrath managed to appeal to nearly everyone, whether they made him good or evil. Sucker Punch made the player a hero, and the world of Empire City was so alive and vibrant that it was hard not to be sucked in and feel like a real citizen. A sequel was inevitable, but the ability to make inFamous a solid franchise wasn’t. Well, the world needs a hero, and Cole McGrath is once again trying to fill those shoes."

Bring it on! Game of the Year 2011 so far. I've played Portal 2, MK, The Witcher 2 and LA Noire and I had most fun playing inFamous 2.

edit: Did I mention the great Killzone 3? inFamous 2 is even better.

Do I have to play Infamous to get Infamous 2? I got the first game from the Come Back rewards but the graphics are so dated that I can't bare to look at it.

Takoulya2470d ago

Umm, no you don't.

Also, the graphics in inFamous aren't bad except during cutscenes. The lighting is pretty good though. I really recommend playing it, whether it looks dated or not.

I know it's your opinion and all, but in my opinion...your opinion stinks! lol. Judging by your standards you can't ever go back and play SNES/NES/N64/PS1/PS2 games cause you can't bare to see any "dated graphics"? lol.

On topic, the story gives some detail about the first game and I think you would still be able to play the second part without being lost about the story. The infamous world reminds a little of the X-Men universe.

LOGICWINS2470d ago

I actually disagree with all of you except Dorado lol.

@Fanboi- The graphics for Infamous 1 IMO are FAR from unbearable.

@GTA and Takoulya- I think you certainly SHOULD play the first in order to understand the story in Infamous 2. Infamous 2 explains very little about Ray Sphere and about how John got his powers.

you talk about ugly game yet you got a fallout3 avatar like really

Focker4202469d ago

You must play the first one otherwise the story will not have the same impact. Plus almost all of the major plot points are dealing with things that happened in the first game. So yes, playing the first one is necessary. The graphics really aren't bad, I have a feeling you're trying to stealth troll a bit.
