Today we take a look at Infamous 2 on PS3. Few games run natively at 1080p on PS3 so today I’ve set the PS3 to output 720p (Infamous native image) then use the mClassic HDMI add-on to upscale to 1080p to get best picture for the comparsion. You can see in the video the difference mClassic makes for these older games.
inFAMOUS 2 continues the story of Cole MacGrath, the protagonist of the original game. Right at the beginning Cole is thrown at facing a huge opponent known as The Beast. Little is known as to who or what the beast is and what is its goal. Defeated, Cole managed to escape the destruction of Empire City, and together with his partner Zeke Dunbar, and an NSA agent Lucy Kuo who he teamed up with in order to defeat The Beast, they sail south to the city of New Marais. His goal is to use the Ray Field Inhibitor device to weaken The Beast and take it head-on once and for all.
But his stay in New Marais won’t just let him prepare for the final conflict with lost of leisure time. Instead, he enters the conflict with local gangs and man trying to destroy all the conduits like Cole, and on the other hand a swamp filled with all kinds of monsters. On his quest to find the necessary Blast Cores that can power the Ray Inhibitor Device, he will have to do a lot of other jobs and quests in the town and its vicinity to increase his own powers and either help the citizens of New Marais, or become the thing to be feared.
Cole will encounter Nix, a female conduit with a grudge against the man leading one of the city gangs. Meantime, after being experimented upon, agent Lucy Kuo herself will become conduit as well. Lucy and Nix will often present Cole with the choice of approaching a certain mission in a good or bad way which will affect Cole’s karma. In the end, Cole will find out who The Beast really is and what is its goal, thus letting him choose whether to stop it or help it execute its plan.
