Infamous 2 has everything you could want out of a good game. There's plenty of action, interactive characters, a good reward system, a great story and lots of side quests that contribute to the main story. Your actions affect how the game plays out which has always been appealing to me in games. Though my favorite aspect of Infamous 2 is the combat, harnessing electricity from everyday objects then zapping your foes is a great feeling. Whether you choose to fight for the good of humanity or for your own selfish reasons both paths are fun and exciting to play. I have and will continue to recommend this game to anyone who enjoys action games.

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.
