Anyone excited about this game? Just saw the review on IGN and they gave it a 9. I can't wait to get it, already pre-ordered it.

I've been playing the beta recently and messing around with the create mission feature. I'm excited to see where that takes the game and how it extends the game play. There are some really dense things going on there.

Overall the game feels roughly the same in terms of control but is more polished. I've only been on one of the "islands" but it's an interesting set up.

Not in the slightest. Played the first one, made it about 3/4 of the way through... then just couldn't stand it anymore.

When you start Infamous 2 there will be an option to import trophy data. The game will offer the following rewards based on specific criteria:

Good or evil trophies in your possession? Start Infamous 2 at level 1 good karma or level 1 evil karma. Trophy for collecting 25 percent of blast shards? Free energy core in Infamous 2 (get two if you collected 50 percent of shards). Just for finishing Infamous (with any karma standing on any difficulty) you'll get 1,000 bonus XP.

Yeah, the first, like most other modern games I've played, was rather lame. Typical sandbox game that has you do pointless missions which are in no way fun. Also the characters were really annoying. Can't remember his name but there was a comic relief character who taught you the controls and I couldn't stand him.

The comic book presentation is played out since they make about 10 super hero movies a year. As for the story, well, there wasn't really a story. I do not like the 2nd person style stories in games like Infamous and Heavy Rain. It's usually an excuse for the game developers to make several crappy stories instead of a single coherent one. Also when you look back on the game you can't really say anything about the story because you can't really say one or the other was the true story. It's like fighting games. All I know is Liu Kang won the tournament in the movie, God knows what else Mortal Kombat is about.

Third Person adventure games tend to not have much in terms of game play, especially when they're not third person shooters. Infamous and Assassin's creed are the best examples of this. You run around and climb stuff. Also the gimmicks in the game are rather lame. Rail grinding, shooting electricity, cannon ball like splash for electricity attack... yeah I can barely remember the boring moves.

These games fail to capture my imagination. Give me Zelda, Mario or Final Fantasy instead. I'll even take Doodle Jump over trash like Infamous.

Well I hear in Infamous 2 the story revolves around a new enemy that captures princesses and Cole must save them in this and every other sequel.

Seriously, if you don't like it, don't play it, calling it trash however is a joke. Sometimes game stories don't grip everyone into the action, but Sucker Punch at least tried to inject something into a flawed genre and the reasons you gave don't even come close to acceptable with all the press and fanfare the first game received. Stick to what you like and if a game tries to do something different, improve on something or stand on it's on...stay away from it.

I can definitely understand how some people are over the whole super hero aspect, but the game is not trash by any means.
