The Best Way to Get Around in 'Infamous 2' Started Out As a Bug

Kotaku: I'm in the middle of playing the new Infamous: Festival of Blood DLC, which gives series hero Cole McGrath all sorts of new powers by virtue of his getting in turned into a vampire. I talked a bit about the Shadow Swarm flying ability in my hands-on preview and when I was demoing the game, I mentioned that it reminded me of my favorite power in this year's electric superhero sequel was the Lightning Tether. Lightning Tether lets Cole zip around the city of New Marais via electromagnetic tendrils, kind of like Spider-Man's webs.

The story is too old to be commented.

Finally. You would think after playing games like Tenchu, games would naturally progress when it comes to basic mechanics. Though there is no stealth in this game, it is an open world that you depend on your super powers to roam around. Before this, it really felt restricting even though everything was pretty cool. The only thing that's missing now is the old Cole's voice actor and I would buy this game someday.

if only the voice of teh MC is your concern , then you're missing on MUCH for so little

excuse me? there´s no other games with such great platforming mecanics in recent years!

infamous 1 and 2 are amazing games i prefer this series over uncharted but that´s me.

Haha, wow. The lightning tether and car lift were my favorite new powers in inFamous 2. Once the tether got unlocked, the whole game got a new feeling. That's one of the only disappointments with inFamous 2, that lightning tether isn't unlocked till act 3.

The tether might be the better, but my favorite power of transportation is the ice launch.

Yeah I liked the Ice launch too. Also the power you get from Nix where you disappear and do a flying kick is really good for dodging and can even be used to travel really far in the air if you jump off of something and keep doing it.

I recently picked up Arkham City and that is a great game, but I have been playing Infamous 2 so much more than that game. I love the platforming and powers too much to not come back. I will be picking up Infamous 3 day 1, no questions asked.
