Infamous 2 is a direct continuation of Infamous. You get many of the same powers but there is more variety inside of the power categories. Gameplay is pretty much the same, since that didn't really need improving. The story is more fleshed out, you now get the feel that there are way more people with similar type powers. The story is basically X-Men 2, however that's not really a bad thing.
I really liked the first game and this improves on the formula. It gives more powers, better graphics, and better enemies. I like playing through good and evil, but to platinum you need 2 play thru's. The story and missions will keep you going... They also added a create your own mission... The controls are about the same but they didn't need correcting... I really liked the game!
At first I thought the game was okay. Loved the 1st one a lot and didnt like that they changed Cole's character model and voice actor. Got used to it and most of the changes are positive. My biggest issues were that there were too many powers (a lot of them were useless or limited use and not needed). This caused the game pace to slow down (swapping powers). My other issue was that this game would glitch out and sometimes freeze on me. It happened to me 5 times while i played through it and that was annoying. Other than that amazing game!
Infamous 2 is an absolutely incredible game. Not only does the game have a great story, but also has excellent gameplay that truly captures the super-hero feel. The city of New Marais has a really cool atmosphere.
The game can be challenging, but earning a Platinum trophy is definitely doable for more than just the hardcore.
UGC content isn't always great, but there are some real gems that make it worth trying out (plus greatly increases the replay value of the game).
If you have a PS3, do yourself a favor and give this series a try.
A very good game I love its dialog and side quests. The graphics are very good and really crisp. the story is really dramatic and serious. Finally they give you other powers in the game because of your choices in the game. Like if your Good you get Ice powers and if your Bad you get Fire/oil powers/shadow powers. Get it is really cheap!
I like this series because you have the choice between being loved or being feared. Both paths to power are available, and the world around you changes based on your choices. It feels kinda "Force" like. I bought the first inFamous and really liked it.
Graphics-wise, there is a big time improvement over the first game, & overall the game looks great. The graphics are rendered exceptionally well, and the effects of Cole's powers never looked better. The best part of all is the new city. It looks magnificent when compared to the previous. There is a lot more activity & visual effects going on that really do make the city feel more alive. It is a major improvement over the first title I feel.

User Generated Content
Unlike the original game in the series, infamous 2 contains significant user generated content tools that dramatically expand gameplay possibilities. Centered around a creation tool system, this allows players to create original missions and share them with other players via PlayStation Network. These function more or less as side quests once they are accepted, adding to the player's point total, but not altering the primary mission flow and morality-based aspects of the game.
