About inFamous 2

Cole MacGrath makes his electrifying return in inFAMOUS 2, the second chapter in the best-selling franchise exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, inFAMOUS 2 takes last summer's blockbuster to all-new heights in an immersive open world action adventure that offers a more visceral, emotional and powerful take on the true superhero experience. Blamed for the destruction of Empire City and haunted by the ghosts of his past, reluctant hero Cole MacGrath makes a dramatic journey to the historic Southern city of New Marais in an effort to discover his full super-powered potential - and face a civilization-ending confrontation with a dark and terrifying enemy from his own future. Gifted with extraordinary god-like abilities, Cole alone has the power to save humanity, but the question is- will he choose to do so?

Summary

The stunningly designed city of New Malais and Cole's range of superpowers are two of the main highlights, but the content creator really pushes the genre to a whole new level. inFamous 2 is, in almost every way, better than its predecessor.

We like

  • The city of New Malais is a joy to explore and navigate
  • Satisfying to execute, visually impressive range of super powers
  • User-generated content accelerates the genre to a new level

We dislike

  • Some badly executed and repetitive boss fights
  • Combat camera angles and poor targeting can be frustrating

See PSU's review on Metacritic & GameRankings

By bombarding you with XP and new powers like an eager congregation showering a bride with confetti, inFamous 2 rewards you better and more frequently than most games. With over 50 powers to unlock— and dozens of side objectives to encourage you to experiment with Cole McGrath’s parkour skills and superhero/anti-hero weapon set—the campaign is also very well-paced, never leaving it too long before throwi...
