inFAMOUS 2 Review | CheatCC

CheatCC - "What makes a superhero? Is it the desire to do the right thing no matter the cost? Is it the superpowers? Is it sheer tenacity and willpower? As a long time comic book fan, I know the answer can be skewed depending on the hero and origin storyline, and sometimes their current situation. I also have to admit, in recent years, the lines between hero and vigilante have blurred immensely in the eyes of readers and video game players. A lot has been done to define the moral compass of heroes, but then there are games like inFAMOUS, daring to challenge the very core of what is good versus what is necessary. inFAMOUS 2 goes this extra step to make it even harder to play only one side of the hero/villain coin."

The story is too old to be commented.

Nice, can't wait to see what Edge gives it :/...

Bathyj2741d ago

Who cares what Edge gives it, I'll be playing this baby in 2 hours and Edge will be the furthest thing from my mind.

This review is totally spot on. I'm a little over a third of the way through (about 7-8 hours in) and its absolutely amazing so far. I think I'm close to getting to the second island and the story development and just raw gameplay is exceptional. Easily up there with Crysis 2, L.A. Noire and Portal 2 for my favorite games of the year so far.

Hell, I'd go as far to say that the pacing of the story and the character development is better than Uncharted 2's.

While Uncharted 2 strives to be a cheesy Indiana Jones movie, Infamous 2 TRULY makes the game feel like a REAL LIFE scenario...I don't want to ruin the game for anyone, but people who have spent significant time with the game know exactly what I mean.

The only thing I will say is that the temptations to be evil are very cleverly implemented into the game.

I think Nix is kind of annoying. Love the game though, but i wish the environment was much more dynamic as one was when you choose to be evil.
Loved that about one, where there would be a lot more sick people, the sky would be darker and the streets and such would look more dirty.

Otherwise awesome game, they even made collection blat shards a lot more easy (upgrade power), those dam dead drops though.

"Infamous 2 TRULY makes the game feel like a REAL LIFE scenario"

Been playing the game for like five hours here, man, and this has more comic books clichés than a current Marvel comic.

Heard from some it just gets worse from there, but honestly, I can't say I'm not enjoying it. It's quite...charming, despite all that.

Funny, I actually LOVE Nix and her abilities. The first time you attack the militia with her is EASILY one of the most entertaining parts of the game. I'm playing on the good side first, so naturally I picked Kuo to exchange my powers with..but whats nuts is that I felt bad I didn't take Nix's powers cause shes an awesome character.

Can't wait to start up my second playthrough on the evil side :)

And yes, the game is awesome even though I'm encountering glitches, but they're nothing major that take away from the game.

@Neckbear- Some of the missions later on in the game are monotonous. Like when you have to fire those tesla bolts. Its funny because in the mission where you steal the transfer machine..Cole HIMSELF groans about having to fire yet ANOTHER Tesla missile lol.

Nitrowolf22741d ago (Edited 2741d ago )


Nix powers are a lot better then when you take them. I picked evil Cole first then played good Cole after i beat it. Didn't like Kou powers that much. Nix has awesome powers and IMO there better then Kou and work a lot better for Co-op then Kuo do.

Also i find it strange that they kind of made Cole act or lean more towards evil decisions. I liked how in one he would think it through and act out the consequences in his head, but in this one i feel like they were trying to make us lean towards it. Even on Evil playthrough it's the same. But then again it makes sense later why.

BTW i love the variety of different missions. I don't think any of them are the same unless it's a super charge one. Not the one where you p[rotect the transformer but then one where you jump off one and grind/fly to the next one. There are a lot of those. Also some of these missions have a continue to them. So they are like mini stories.

LOGICWINS2741d ago (Edited 2741d ago )

^^Yeah, he's kind of an asshole in this one, but I like that. He has powers and he kills big monsters, its HUMAN for him to get cocky. I lol'ed during this cinematic where the swamp monsters are first introduced in Bertran's campaign and Cole tells a pedestrian to get the hell out of his way.

Your right that Cole's character DOES lean more towards the evil side regardless of what path the player chooses.

The missions overall are varied, but like you said, those "Protect the Transformer" missions are VERY repetitive.

As usual. I think Reviewers are playing a different game from what i am playing.

AlexCage2741d ago

Then I guess your playing the game wrong.

NateCole2741d ago

No not these guys. I meant the other reviewers that did a rush job or played a different game that i am playing now.

SP is robbed of due credit. Infmaous 2 is way better than part 1 and part 1 was already an amazing game.
