inFamous 2 Review (GameXplain)

GameXplain: "Moral conflict has quickly become one of gaming's most used staples. Will you be a paragon of virtue, saving old ladies and anyone who needs help? Or will you be an evil bastard, ready to kick puppies and wreak havoc wherever you go? It's a fun system, allowing gamers to do whatever comes natural or go against type to see the possibilities. The problem is, these moral conflicts always work in the extremes. You are either the second coming of Jesus or the devil reborn in human flesh. The original inFamous certainly treated the morality system this way, except for one choice that was truly devious, but the developers at Sucker Punch have seemingly gone out of their way to blur the lines between good and evil in inFamous 2, if only a little. The question is, is the rest of the game good enough to support it?"

So is it better than the 1st?

zinkabass3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

Yes,.. Just about anything you can think of is better,..

ElDorado3442d ago

It really is. SuckerPunch improved everything. The voice of Cole may bother you, but that won't last. This game is fantastic and I don't agree with the Empire City > New Marais. New Marais has more variety I think.

GrandTheftZamboni3442d ago

There is nothing wrong with Cole's voice. I don't know where that comes from ...

Don't think it, you are absolutely right. I like floodtown as it is effectively a game of don't touch the floor.

It has an 83 on Metacritic, compared to the first Infamous which has an 85, so the general consensus seems to be "No, it is not better than the first one" unless standards have risen so much in the last 2 years that today an 83 is better than an 85 from 2009.

You high, or just retarded?

Reviews for sequels rarely work the same as the original games. The original will be measured as a stand alone game against all others, a sequel gets measured by a function of how significantly it improves upon the franchise and only with respect to that is it then weighed against other games.

I've played both, I enjoyed infamous 2 significantly more than the first. I also agree with most of the reviews.

GrandTheftZamboni3442d ago

Some sites included in Metacritic are retarded or haters ... liars either way. Edge gave it 60. There goes their credibility forever in eyes of everyone who gets to play Infamous 2. The game deserves 95 in my opinion.

Why do trolls always feel the need to flood PS3 articles with nonsense. I've noticed that most of the top comments in PS3 articles lately are from trolls.

Stick to the articles you enjoy instead of forcing other people to read your trash.

hate to break it to you yoda but the part 2 is actually better than 1 in every way, its just that reviewers are too stupid to is it.

than the 1st and. and evil powers are good while good powers are great

story is much better you always have one focus and that's the beast

Neckbear3442d ago (Edited 3442d ago )

"story is much better you always have one focus and that's the beast"

Untrue, half the game focuses on the issues with Bertrand and the Militia and the Conduits and all that. Basically, it's "to hell with The Beast!" despite the reminder that it's going to eat Cole soon.

Just like the first one, where half the game focused on you fixing the issues of Empire City and whatnot.

Really, it's just more of the same. Not a better game, but not a worse game, either. In my opinion, at least.

GrandTheftZamboni3442d ago


One thing is not debatable: graphics are MUCH better in inFamous 2. Only someone who hasn't played it can claim otherwise.

HowarthsNJ3442d ago

I'm playing both at the same time.

The second is better in graphics and over all tech, but both are great games.

You are forced to become full Hero or fully inFamous to get the most power. No shades of gray.

I finally got started on Infamous 2 last night. After finally finishing LA Noire, this game is a godsend! I was extremely starved on action and Infamous 2 delivers.
