Looks good and draws elements from other games, i.e. prototype.  Should get at least an 8 out of 10 rating.

Im so looking forward to this Infamous games. Infamous 1 was my first best game I ever played and Infamous 2 had a even better story so I loved this series so far. Im so glad they making another one since Informus 2 had a tragedy.The new environment, and story look interesting. (Not the character to me so far) If I had to guess I think the bad ending with Informus 2 was canon then since people have powers now. I also hope their super villian in this game and I really miss Cole and hope he in this game too.

I just don't understand one thing.

In infamous 2, cole killed all who had powers to save humanity and now they are back, how?

The best looking games for me are Witcher 3 & Battlefield 4

But please don't forget these are first games of next generation, remember first games release on current generation, for me Kameo was the best looking game and Killzone 2 which was fake. Remember Gun, Perfect Dark Zero, Oblivion, Amped 3 and King Kong, they were looking terrible. I promise you, 2015 you see the real power of next generation. For me when I got my hands on Gears of War and Call of Duty 3 I had feeling I am playing next gen.

Upon comparing Infamous second sun and infamous 2, yeah sure second son looks better..but it still doesn't look great for this generation of consoles. It looks better by comparison, but that's because infamous/2 doesn't look that great to begin with. Just trying to evaluate this stuff objectively. I own 360, but I'm stoked that ps4 will have better online play and seems to have the advantage performance wise, and thus I'm seriously considering buying it... but I'm not seeing the graphic advantage in this game or killzone or other exclusives.

Is it just me, or does this game look like it's performing on the ps3? Not terribly impressed with the graphics performance. I mean, I want ps4 to perform better than xbox this time around, but I'm not seeing it with this game.

This is one of the games that's getting me excited for next gen. Looks like such a step up from the previous games. I've never really liked the crazy-leg style of movement, but these games remind me of the animation Avatar, so it's all good.

Please, no pure good and evil choices this time round. I hope every choice has grey consequences or outcomes, making it up to the player to decide what is best based on their own morals.

The guy playing makes the character look like he's confused.

hunting and absorbing people's power?? sounds like a little bit of Prototype there

Thematically this game sounds really similar to the TV show Heroes. It should be very interesting to play.

@Andrew1471   No ! But this new character (Delsin) takes energy from smoke !!!!?!

@Love2play99 There is a previous interview that explains this. Basically the blast didn't kill every conduit out there, it just really thinned their numbers.

@nomissimon1 Also the frame rate already looks incredible! Especially compared to Infamous 2. When you combine all of that with the destructibility... yeah... This game looks nex gen as hell. Way more next gen then Forza and "THE DRIVATAR"!

gameguy182
gameguy182

@nomissimon1 Your wrong. The amount of detail in the animations in this game is just not possible on ps3. The Lighting and textures are also very much improved.

flameon12346

@MicK765 Play the first one. It really a good game. The second one is even better.

gameguy182
gameguy182

@daviz88 Why not? :'(

SPOILERS!

Cole is dead bro! It kinda makes me mad that they looked at trophy data to see which ending people "choose" the most. Its not like I knew Cole was going to die at the end! The evil ending was way cooler to me!

nomissimon1

@Supabul Yeah, right? That's what I was thinking. I know these ps fanboys will say "are you blind"? But I'm just being honest..it doesn't look that great.

daviz88

you should play infamous more often especially infamous 2 its really great.

flameon12346

@Emerald_Scott So you want them to mix up the story a little bit like Mass Effect or Call of Duty Black Ops 2? It look like a good idea but If they do that then It won't be a Infamous game like how it use to be where we can enjoy playing pure good or pure bad stoy in the game. Infamous is the only game that you can enjoy playing good and bad without all the complicated ending.

FYI infamous came out first.

@HipHopBeats Start with the first game in the franchise for the time being and skip the second game. You might find the first game a little too repetitive but it's worth it, and when you unlock more powers, it gets fun. You might also like some of the comic-like cutscenes and the ending. Get it. It should be dirt cheap. Get either the first game or Infamous: Festival of Blood, which is on PSN.

@gameguy182 Fair enough. After comparing the games again and looking at some of the xbox one exclusives, this game does look like a noticeable improvement.

daviz88
daviz88

this is a very serious predicament because if you choose the evil ending it tarnishing the image of the hero i have come to love. also choosing the good ending causes cole to die. this is clearly an EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL set up by sucker punch.

@nomissimon1 @Supabul lol Well look closer! The texture, lighting, particle effects, destructibility, THE ANIMATIONS ARE INCREDIBLE.

@Supabul I mean like.. I'm hoping ps4 is the better system graphically, but when I compare this gameplay to Ryse...it's no contest. Ryse looks way better.

@daviz88 I like the first infamous a little bit more. 2 is still a great game. There is a lot about infamous 2 that I think is better than 1. 1 to me just felt like a tighter and finely tuned experience though. I think they could have worked on 2 a little bit longer. Oh and does infamous really need in game level design mechanics? In my opinion no, no it does not. Focus on the single player Sucker Punch! Sony please don't make them put in multiplayer in this game! Infamous already came out of sony guiding Sucker Punches hands. The game Sucker Punch originally pitched to sony all those years ago was much more cartoony. I'm pretty sure they referred to it as Animal Crossing with superheroes.

@gameguy182 @ravager1989 i have never played any Mega Man games before...but from what i know..it is a 2D side scrolling game...they might have the absorbing power mechanic...but i doubt they have the 'hunting' idea...so yea...if thats the case...Prototype copied Mega Man and Infamous Second Son copied Prototype 2 (since the hunting mechanic appeared in prototype 2 not 1)

ravager1989
ravager1989

@daviz88 yes...infamous came out first...but hunting and absorbing people's power idea is prototype's

@ravager1989 @xboxguyforever Wow, some people haven't played it yet. Way to spoil the game, lol.

daviz88
daviz88

did you not see the improved graphics, incredible lighting, the enhanced texture, destructible platforms, better physics performance which is clearly evident in the way his cloths react to wind and gravity, the fluid animation especially the solid-particle transitions. Ryse didn't look good it looked amazing on doubt about that but remember second son is an open world game which requires a higher engine performance than a linear game.

ravager1989
ravager1989

@BlackDiamond81 infamous 2 came out 2 years ago....so yea...aint my bad they do not know...further more...they need to play the previous Infamous to know the hero is cole...so i take it that they have played both the prequels
