A perfect sequel is a game that improves on essentially everything from the first game. It expands the story told in the first game, expands the gameplay, and ideally sees some refined graphical fidelity. Now, a perfect sequel is not a perfect game in my eyes. I don’t think InFAMOUS 2 is a perfect game, a really good game, hell yea, but not a perfect one. With that being said it improves on almost everything from the first game and that in my eyes makes it damn close to the perfect sequel. Now if you have not seen my video on InFAMOUS 1, I highly recommend that you take a look at that as it explains what I liked and didn’t like but I can very briefly give a recap here.

Essentially, InFAMOUS 1 was a really ambitious game and as I argued in my video on it, too ambitious for its own good. The map seemed to be too large for the traversal abilities to keep up with and it was even too large for the console to keep up with. Textures were often muddy and popin was almost as numerous as the major frame rate drops which would often tank into the single digits. Those same textures also just had a very muddy colour scheme that made Empire city a bit of an eye sore at times. The story was pretty interesting and despite being relatively simple on the surface, had a ton of lore that kept me engaged despite it being a little cheesy, which again, I didn’t mind. The traversal was a little too primitive for me and there were too many skyscrapers with little ways to scale them effectively. Mission design was fun in some cases but often felt like padding. The morality system did a good job of justifying both the good and evil options and your choices actually made a reasonable difference. The combat was a little too difficult for my taste but not in a good way. I found too many enemies just flat out one shotted you and these same enemies had the ability to go invisible. Boss fights were often just okay and they unfortunately were pretty unremarkable aside from the spectacle alone.
Fortunately InFAMOUS 2 in my eyes has a better story, better characters, a better world, better gameplay, and better graphical fidelity than its ancestor and I’m going to try and explain why I feel that way throughout this video.
Before we go any further I have to clarify that I will be spoiling everything from both InFAMOUS 1 and 2.
Now with that being said, just about everything in InFAMOUS one both good and bad, was improved upon or expanded upon here in InFAMOUS 2. InFAMOUS 1 stars Cole McGrath, a courier that ends up gaining the power to control electricity after a package he is delivering, which is a radioactive bomb called the ray sphere, detonates. Cole was not the only one who had powers activated by the ray sphere and his goal is to stop those who are using their powers for evil. He gains a reputation as a hero and after defeating a mysterious figure named Kessler, he prepares for an abominable foe, named the beast. Now, there is also an Evil route but the Good ending is canon. Now for a more in depth summary and analysis please refer to my InFAMOUS 1 video.
