A Near Perfect Sequel
17 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Infamous 2 takes place a little after the events of the first Infamous. Cole has learned of the arrival of a deadly conduit named "The Beast" and he travels with his friend Zeke and NSA member Kuo to the city of New Marais to meet with a man named Dr. Wolfe who worked for Kessler in the First Sons. Wolfe has been working on a device to stop The Beast's power and needs Cole to collect several Blast Cores from the Ray Sphere to power it. But Cole must face more deadly apposition in New Marais, with ice-powered conduits, swamp monsters, and a fascist anti-conduit group called The Millitia led by the mysterious Joseph Bertrand.

Much like its predecessor, Infamous 2 is an incredibly fun game to play. The same karmic system is in this game except the way you choose them is different as you offered choices from two other conduits. A fire conduit named Nix, and Kuo who has power over ice. Whatever choice you make will impact the rest of the game, the citizens opinion of you, and your appearance just like the first Infamous. The climbing controls are also the same from the first game.

What's different this time around is that New Marias is much more alive then Empire City. Meaning, there are a lot more side-missions to play even after the main game is completed and they deal with whatever karma Cole has. For instance, if you're a hero you will be healing civilians, stopping muggings or defusing bombs. If you are evil then you'll be stealing from civilians, silencing street performers and taking out protesters against you. Plus, there are several objects that can be destroyed in this game, like verandas, gas tanks or warehouses.

Melee combat is also greatly improved and much more fun to use. With a new weapon called "The Amp" you can get up close and personal with the enemy which is quite useful against smaller enemies or swamp monsters. Later in the game you can even get powers from either Nix or Kuo, giving you ice or fire powers depending on your choice. With ice you can create a shield protecting you from gunfire, launch yourself into the air with a small iceberg, and even freeze your enemies. With fire you can launch yourself at the enemy dealing a fatal kick, create small swamp monsters to do your whim, and drain your enemies to give you more electricity.

Overall Infamous 2 is a sequel that improves nearly everything from its predecessor. There are still a few problems with the camera, which is most notable in melee combat, but they won't divert from the overall enjoyability of the game. Sucker Punch has delivered once again. A must have exclusive for any Play Station 3 owner.
