This doesn’t mean Infamous 2 doesn’t have its moments. It is still enthralling to play and will provide hours of fun and entertainment as Cole continues along his journey. He can take a lot of punishment. He is very strong and powerful and travels to New Marais to see how much stronger he can still become.
The new characters in this sequel fail to get you involved in their well-being. They don’t have a story riveting enough to keep you interested in their affairs. The new characters are Nix and Kuo in case you wondering.
You can set out on a mission to save innocent civilians from a hostile armed group of terrorists. You will have to kill the bad guys. You can use a tornado attack if you wish. The idea is to accumulate good karma points. There are many different missions to choose from. None of them are serious though and at best laughable. The bland story won’t hold your imagination for a considerable length of time and you will find it more exciting to show off with Cole’s heroic like powers. Jumping from rooftop to rooftop is one of the abilities of Cole that you should enjoy. He can get sucked into objects, so you have to be careful. You may be trying to flee a dangerous situation and Cole hangs onto a drainpipe, or catches a ladder, sticking to the danger points will frustrate you at times.
Engaging the enemies is rather exciting. You will find killing them is loads of fun and you do have effective weapons to do that. The Amp can be used to bludgeon your enemies. The camera of the game will however, not give you the view you want. You won’t be able to see where your enemies are. However, you have lots of diversified enemies to face, monsters, aliens, evil doers, which the original did not have. Many of them will frighten you. They have long life spans, and killing them won’t be as easy as you would like.
The exciting fights take place in wide open spaces. But many of these scenes turn to confined spaces as you battle between walls and inside warehouses and as you take damage the screen becomes difficult to see so you struggle to identify enemy objects. Cole can do almost anything, but he cannot swim and sometimes the deep water is approaching and his life is at stake. There are many different fighting scenes, from wastelands to the built up city. Cole must read the help messages and react on them. The citizens are dependent on him to come to their aid.
The music is another plus for this kind of adventure game. The music has been carefully designed to blend in with the scenes and give you the feeling that you are there. It will put you in the mood to play for hours and the first scene can take almost 25 hours to complete. You can use the mission editing tool to design whatever suits your fancy and you can make the enemies behave in any way you like.
