Product Information
Infamous 2 continues the saga of Cole MacGrath as players guide Sucker Punch Productions' electrified superhero to the New Orleans-inspired city of New Marais in order to enhance his powers in preparation for a battle with a devastating evil known only as The Beast. Further complicating matters is the fact that the citizens of New Marias are being terrorized by mutated swamp creatures known as The Corrupted, and the city has been placed under martial law by the iron-fisted politician Joseph Bertrand, III, whose militia has been ordered to kill all "unpure" dwellers, including MacGrath. Sandbox-style gameplay returns, giving players the freedom to roam the city's slums, swamps, and plantations at will, taking advantage of Cole's parkour-like acrobatic climbing skills, and his ability to "grind" along power lines and hover through the air on a cushion of electricity.

Morality continues to play a part in the storyline and in-game mechanics, as gamers must decide whether Cole should act out of pure altruism, selfishness, or any of the gray areas in between; and the choices players make ultimately determine Cole's appearance and powers. But while the original Infamous often presented users with black-and-white choices, Infamous 2 attempts a more nuanced approach by introducing two new super-powered characters who offer different solutions to each problem. Essentially personifying the proverbial Angel and Devil on Cole's shoulders, Kuo is a patriotic NSA agent who harnesses the power of ice, while Nix is a hot-tempered New Marais native who can wield oil and fire.

MacGrath has a variety of new powers, including the Amp, an electrified melee weapon designed by his friend Zeke; the Kinetic Pulse, which lets Cole launch vehicles at enemies; and the Ionic Vortex, a massively destructive tornado of electricity. Players can also acquire fire- and ice-based attacks from Nix and Kuo, or team up with the new characters for combo attacks. And though Infamous 2 lacks a true multiplayer component, it does include a user-generated mission editor that is part Demon's Souls, part LittleBigPlanet. Gamers can use any of the allies, enemies, and non-player characters that they have encountered to create custom side-quests that include target shooting, platforming, and escort, survival, and stealth missions, among many other options. Players then have the option of playing and rating missions that randomly appear in the game world, with highly rated quests earning "Featured" status.

    The game’s structure is standard but effective: the open world gives waypoints and markers denoting the next objective, which usually consists of tracking down and taking out some number of enemies. The game occasionally shows flairs of creativity in mission design, but in general, combat is the bread-and-butter. These are broken up by one of two types of cutscenes: in-engine, with motion capture tech, or the stylistic comic-book-esque presentations from the original. Both work equally well. While the mission variety and pacing do tend to drag, especially toward the end, the narrative’s conclusion is certainly a compelling enough reason to move forward.

    There’s plenty to do outside of the game’s primary missions: over sixty optional missions allow you to regain control over sections of the city, expelling any sort of violent encounter in the area. Hundreds of blast shards hidden around the city offer an increased electrical capacity, “Dead Drops” offer an expanded view of the game’s narrative, and Sucker Punch has thrown in a new wrinkle in the form of UGC, or User Generated Content. Players can construct, albeit with relatively rudimentary tools, custom missions and share them with the world. These require a bit of technical ability, and I’ve yet to see one really blow me away, but it adds a nice additional touch in a world already loaded with nice touches. Even discounting additional content and playing the alternate morality, there’s easily fifteen hours of content.

    inFAMOUS 2 is a game that easily improves on its forebear. It’s likely one of the best superhero-sandbox game ever made, and though it has its flaws, the game remains a polished experience from start to finish; “I’m too absurdly powerful” is one criticism that the development team will just have to live with. A graphical powerhouse with gameplay to match, Sucker Punch Productions delivers a fantastic addition to any Playstation 3 owner’s library.

    Infamous2 is an amazing open world action platformer game! Best I've played

    I want to start by saying that I played and beat Infamous 1 and the game was awesome. Gameplay-wise Infamous2 is BETTER than the original in every way.

    Pros: The graphics in this game are awesome. The game has got a major 1080p face lift since the first Infamous. There are many destructible objects within the game, even some walls. The destructible environments are coupled with good physics. The game has many different kind of enemies with many different ways to dispatching them, and the controls are intuitive and precise. This makes the game truly a blast to play. Your character's (Cole) new powers including object levitation. You can lift a car and toss it at your enemies. You can also use electric whip for a quick lift up to the roof tops. The environments within the game are also more varied than they were in Infamous1, including a swamp, ships and factory (all the environments are connected within one large world allowing you to go back at any time). The boss battles in this game are truly breath taking. At one part you'll get to fight bosses as big as building. The gameplay in Infamous2 is extremely fun. Infamous2 is now one of my favorite PS3 games. Later in the game you can expend your powers by either mixing in flame or ice powers to your electric ones. You'll have to chose one or the other. This makes playing this game twice a must to see all your powers.

    Cons: The game's only weakness is the background story. It simply isn't as original as it was in the first Infamous.

    Bottom Line: Infamous2 is a pleasure to play. I am a huge fan of this game, it is the best action Platformer out there, period.

    One of the best games of the year!

    inFamous 2 is one of the best game's i've played in a while. I bought it because I played the first game a couple of years back and loved it. I was a bit hesitant about this game because the "swampy" kinda setting that some reviews gave it kind of turned me away. But I gave it the benefit of the doubt, and i'm so glad I did. inFamous 2 expands on the original in every way, both in the variety and the scope of its missions and in the actual gameplay itself. The way Sucker Punch has developed Cole's powers make it feel like Cole is actually controlling lightning. It actually feels like you're playing a superhero (or villain) rather than a random video game character. The story is great and has a few twists that really kept me intrigued. I found this game so hard to put down that I beat it in a matter of a few days. I'd highly recommend this game for anyone that loves action adventure games. This is definitely one of my favorite games this year!!

    I played the first Infamous and I really enjoyed it. I was greatly awaiting the release of this game and I was not disappointed. This one was really fun to play and full of action. The graphics were excellent, storyline was good and kept me entertained for a long time. This game is very long and has a lot of side mission that you can do while following the main mission. All in all this is one I would definitely recommend. Rating 9/10

    Great Storyline, awesome way to continue the Infamous story... theres also a hint to a sequel (if you play hero).

    Great cutscenes, interactive environments (now destructible) and creative enemies (the corrupted)
