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.Read full review
