What Gamespot Users have to say about inFamous 2

  • User Rating 7

    inFamous 2 seems to steal ideas from many sources, making it a sort of awesome Frankenstein game.

    Rated on March 03, 2012 by Illier1

    inFamous 2 is the continuation of inFamous 1, a superhero game giving you the power of lightening. The Story (I won't give it away) is deep and keeps you searching for more. And the powers are fun to ...

    While Infamous 2 is a good game in it's own right, it doesn't quite live up to the bar set by its predecessor. Getting to the chase, three major issues hinder this game: The blatant black and white mo...

    A criminally underrated sequel that manages to improve on the original in a few key ways.

    I was somewhat disappointed last year when Infamous 2 came out and was widely met with lukewarm reviews. The first Infamous is my second favorite game on the PS3, and I was very eager to see what wou...

    Sharp visuals and other small improvements keep Infamous 2 far from disappointment.

    Infamous was without a doubt one of my favorite PS3 exclusives, so from the start Infamous 2 had quite a lot to live up to. Infamous brought forth unique and exciting gameplay as well as a solid plot ...

    Thankfully Sucker Punch responded to the overwhelming criticism of their lead redesign. Cole is now immediately recognisable, instead of the ghastly Nathan Drake clone that featured in early trailers....

    It has a couple rough patches, but Infamous 2 is a solid open-world platformer that is a joy to play.

    Infamous 2 is underrated. Everything about this game is an improvement over its predecessor. whether its graphics, art design, or enemy variation, this game was better. The original Infamous was gr...

    Even though inFamous 2 lacks a lot in comparison to the first one, it's still loads of fun.

    Rated on April 28, 2012 by lightning_kf

    With the first inFamous being a huge success for the PS3 and being one of my favorite games for that system, the expectations of a second one was high. And even though things did not live up to the h...

    Gotta try both, and i don't mean good or evil

    Somehow, the first Infamous was better FOR ME (story, the ending and gameplay). But this game still is really good. I witnessed no lags, no slowdowns, no screen tears, no nothing. Every time i game...

    Infamous 2 manages to live up to the original as a sequel, but it's lacking in a couple of departments.

    Rated on May 05, 2012 by FreakshowGamer

    Obviously, you should play Infamous before Infamous 2, and if you do, the first thing you'll notice about this game is how Cole's original voice actor was replaced with someone quite distant comparing...

    Infamous 2 offers the same fun as Infamous 1 did. If you've read my review for Infamous 1 you'll know I didn't praise the game unlike many others have because it's similar to many other games except f...
