This game was outstanding! Ihave a GameInformer magazine subscription and a month or so back I read an article on Infamous Second Sons and it sounded like it would be sick, so i got on here and ordered Infamous and Infamous 2 to catch up on the story line and the first game had me frustrated to near insanity... Needless to say I didnt finish it. But i got #2 and loved it the whole way through! The graphics the story the choices! It was all so compelling. I woke up one morning around 11:00 and grabed the controller and went right to work. the next thing i knew it was dark outside and my dad was standing at my bedroom door telling me it was after midnight! If thats not proof of an enormous sucsess I don't know what is!
While its fun to run around a open town with super powers it gets old fairly fast. A step up fom the first game all the repetitive action is back hunting blast shard/drops/side quests.
While exploring is a little better this time around you might wanna save yourself some trouble and rush through the extremely light story cause you get quite a few abilities to help traveling a lot easier.
All around better then the first game with new powers and a shiny new weapon but after the first few hour you'll give a sigh at doing the same thing 100's of times.
I enjoyed the 2nd installment of inFAMOUS much on the Hero storyline and will probably rent it again in the future to complete the game on the inFamous storyline. I liked the different variations they added to your attacks, such as the Bolt Stream, different types of rockets and the various ice attacks. It was seamless to switch between attacks during gameplay and made it easy to use different strategies against different opponents. All in all, excellent game for those who enjoyed playing the 1st inFAMOUS.
