But I had to for Infamous 2. I, like many people enjoyed the first installment. I fully expected that the 2nd one would be a good game but I was wrong. One of the best games I've ever played.
Unlike the first game, Sucker Punch has breathed life into Cole, Zeke and newcomers Kuo and Nix.
Once again they've managed to make every new power that Cole receives both cool and useful. But the real star here is the story. It's nuanced, it's compelling and it's something out of a classic comic book.
The ending, depending on which one you get is devastating. Both because of the story and because you're at the end of this brilliant journey.
He starts out like any ordinary guy just doing his job, then he gets super powers and Cole McGrath's world changes forever. In many ways, he's just like Spider Man with the whole "with great power comes great responsibility" thing. As much like Spider Man he is, he also resembles Spawn as an anti hero.
In pretty much every way, InFAMOUS 2 is way better than the first game. New evolving powers, new and better melee attacks, more boss type enemies, new ways to travel the world, and two endings depending on what path you take. The random events like stopping muggings are actually pretty cool. They make make it more like a open world game than it already was. The only problems would be the ones present in all open world games like the random minor glitches like parts where you can fall through the ground or the sometimes oversensitive camera, but they don't ruin the game.
Bottom line: InFAMOUS 2 is such an awesome game that every PS3 owner should have this game in their collection. the story is the classic heroes journey, the characters are are true to themselves, shooting lightning in all its many forms is really fun, getting around the city flying, zipping on power lines, and climbing buildings is really fun, and beating up bad guys rocks. To put it simply, this game is awesome.
I would highly recommend this game, the graphics are a huge improvement over the original infamous. It is not to repetitive and the new Cole looks amazing. This game is one of the best exclusives on ps3 and its a must get.
