The game was great. During the game play, it was difficult to switch from good to evil, or evil to good. You can pull the character from the first game and continue it. The only problem i had is, when i was evil i did a good event in a major scene and it made me complete good, instead of just adding good points. 4.5/5

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.

Over all I saw inFamous 2 was getting the same scores as inFamous, but when Gamespot gave it a 7.5, I was getting a little worried. However, once I started playing inFamous 2, I knew that Gamespot was wrong.

InFamous 2 is overall MUCH better than the previous game. The graphics are beautiful, the city is alive and colorful, and you really do feel like you're making an impact. I just got done with my first playthrough (as a Hero), and I must say that they did a great job making you feel connected to the characters, and caring about them. The original powers are back, and instead of standard up-grading, you can acquire new versions, and "evolve" your powers as well, being able to freely switch between any of the different versions.

The karmatic system in the game is PERFECT. In inFamous, it really only changed some dialogue, your powers, and maybe the last few bits of the game. In inFamous 2, however, your karma choices can affect the entire game. You will meet two support characters who reflect your karmatic choices, Nix (Evil) is chaotic and controls fire and oil, Kuo (Good) is diplomatic and controls Ice. Eventually you will be able to get samples of their powers, reflecting your karma.

Over all this game is amazing, I was hooked and couldnt put the controller down, it's entirely immersive, not too hard and not too easy, and provides enough material to be a blast. The mode creator feels thrown in at first, but given practice it makes for even more hours of entertainment. I highly reccomend this game if anything about super powers get you excited.
