My son said this was one of the greatest games he has ever played. He said it had lots of action, explosions, and a good mix of choices. He loved the game play and the new powers. I think it was a great game for him to play!
I played InFamous back in 2009 and was blown away in the first 10 minutes how much fun it is to be a super hero in a open world game. Sucker Punch polished everything from the first InFamous game such as the combat system, new powers, a different looking environment, better graphics, better voice acting, and a more open world feeling. Even added User Generated missions which allows us to make our own missions and continue the InFamous experience online by playing missions made by other people.
The story continues right after the first InFamous you play as Cole Magrath a carrier who delivers packages to people when one day a "special package" tears through Empire City. He awakens in the hospital with electricity-based superpowers and a city he must save or destroy" This is a definite buy and I won't spoil anything about InFamous 2 but I highly recommend play the first one which was free in "Sony's welcome back package" or its $20 USD.

Infamous 2 takes what 1 was and made it so much better, with new powers, new army of idiots and monsters to kill and huge game changing karma choices. (Keep in mind, i only completed the GOOD side)
The story takes place right after the first game, Cole is heading to the city of New Marais to get his new upgraded powers from scientist Dr. Wolfe after he heard about The Beast thats headed to Empire City. Whats cool about the start of the game is that you can use your karma from the first game to boost your karma in this game and some of the choices you made with that karma effect some of the side missions which is awesome!
Here's my full verdict,
Cole's back and his powers are more insane than ever(please see ionic vortex).
Graphics hold up from the first game.
User generated content adds to the replay value!
Some of the bosses suck(IMO).
Not a whole lot of variety in baddies, but its not that bad.
As with most great games....the experience ends eventually.
Must buy, if you loved infamous 1 you'd be insane to miss this one. Oh and check out the User generated content creator if you wanna have some crazy fun making your own missions!
