I loved the first, so I knew that I was going to love this one as well, but I didn't think I would as much.
Infamous 2, in my opinion, is the better than the first for many reasons: graphics, gameplay, powers, mixed powers, story.
I liked the story a little better, and the end has a good twist and also is a big shocker.
The graphics improved quite a bit, still not great but this gameplay is too good that the graphics don't matter much.
There are many new powers, and also the ability to mix powers with the other NPC's, whether you are good or evil, and you also get to choose which kind of power you want in certain situations in combat, and it's very easy to do so.
What is also cool about this game is the user generated content missions. Now you can pretty much have unlimited side missions to do because of the ability to create your own levels. Some levels people have created are pretty creative and fun!
I recommend this game, I love this series and have platinumed both games. Definitely worth a buy in my opinion.
Infamous 1 was a game that took some skills to play. It had an intriguing storyline with some good dialogue. Infamous 2 only surpasses what its predecessor had done. There is more humor in Infamous 2. The graphics were quite brilliant, albeit they took some while to get used to when your used to the graphics in Infamous 1. At first hearing Cole's voice being less guttural is strange but now I find that I like it much more. Some of the enemies are frustrating to go up against but if you know how to do it just right they have their weaknesses. In Infamous 1 I would say that being evil was quite a bit more fun, but Infamous 2 makes being evil almost a chore for me. With the add in of some of the improved and new abilities I find it to be extremely fun. I just wish there could be an Infamous 3.
I don't like games that tell me how to play. this being a move only doesn't help any. I was at the beginning and I couldn't' figure out where the stupid thing wanted me to go. doesn't' help that I cant' afford a stupid HD TV so I can't read the print on the screen. When I couldn't' use the standard controller. I gave up and am returning this turkey to game fly. Word to the developers. Leave a controller option for future games.
