inFamous 2 Review (Lens of Truth)

Lens of Truth writes - "Taking place right after the events in the first game, Cole is back and must harness new powers to defeat the rampaging Beast. As expected there are two ways to take on the mission ahead, so we decided to put both sides of Cole’s split personality under our Lens. Find out inside if inFamous 2 can take its place among the superb PS3 exclusives or if it gets a case of the usual lackluster sequel disease. The results may “shock” you."

Fantastic game. So far this and Dead Space 2 are the 2 best games released this year...IMO.

DS2 was pretty badass. I loved the saw blade gun. I forget what it was called, but it was sweeeeet!

Lightning Tether makes inFamous 2 a guaranteed 9/10. I see no other way to score it. Electric spiderman! It made the game so much fun.

It's kind of annoying to see reviewers scoring sequels lower than the first despite being better.
That's why I treat reviews as nothing but opinions and try to ignore most of them.

I think the only reason we are seeing 8s is because of the new voice actor. The original actor was a perfect fit for cole even though he did have too much gravel in his throat. The new guy just sounds like he is trying to sound like the original cole without the chain smoking. Its not a big issue for me because they pretty much amped everything else up but I could see why it might bother people.

EDIT:Phantoms hitting hard today. This is exactly why we need to remove the anonymity from the disagree/bubble system.

'Taking place right after the events in the first game'

I always assumed there was some gap between the two games and I don't actually remember the game stating that it was directly after the first one.

The gap is a six month timeskip that takes place after the game's opening. Strictly speaking, inFamous 2 does start right after, or just really close, after the events of the first one.

1 trophy away from platinum and I rarely go for platinum. This game is just so freaking good I cant stop playing it so I figured I would hunt down the elusive trophy while I am at it. Easily my top 3 favorite new IP this generation. I just hope they make an Infamous 3.

I give Infamous 2 an 11 out of 10.

I'm all finished now and it is easily up there with the best of 2011. Well it's up there with Portal 2.
