inFamous 2 is the second sandbox game by Sucker Punch. The dynamic action game features a main hero who has developed various fun superpowers. He visits large metropolis, completes diversified missions and fights outnumbered by his enemies. When the first inFamous was nearing the end, Cole McGrath, the protagonist, was the strongest being to ever have existed in Empire City.
Everything changed, however, with the arrival of the Beast. It came out that all the previous events were carefully planned in order to direct Cole towards his final opponent. He was too weak to win, though, and nearly died in the encounter. In order to get ready for another round, Cole seeks a place where he could augment his powers and decides on a journey to New Marais. The Beast, however, does not want to peacefully wait. It follows McGrath destroying and killing in every place it goes to. In New Marais, there is a military organization led by Bertrand, its charismatic leader who is not going to let a freak wander to the streets of his turf. That is why Cole does not receive a warm welcome: the Beast is not his only enemy. New Marais is much more interesting and culturally diverse than Empire City, the main location in the first instalment.
It’s mostly due to the fact that it was inspired by New Orleans. We are not limited by the city itself. As Cole, we visit the suburbs and various locations places around the city like bogs and cemeteries. In inFamous 2 Cole manages to get many new skills, abilities and moves. The game is interesting from the very beginning because McGrath keeps all the powers he learnt in the first game. He doesn’t stay that way, though: there is a lot to learn in inFamous 2. Thanks to induction, the player can simply jump onto a roof of a skyscraper or slide along the walls of buildings. Among Cole’s new offensive powers is, for example, an electric typhoon that turns the battlefield into hell. Cole also gets new weapons that use the power of electricity.
