first one was a pile of shite, so i'm sure this is an accurate score.

Don't know why it is an 'ouch' score. Edge is always critical and doesn't mark high. They're like an unfunny Zero Punctuation.

I've enjoyed their magazine at some point but quite rarely. I find they come off as a little pompous myself.

Only tried the demo so far and I'd be inclined to agree with Edge's points. With Uncharted 2 you could immediately tell the jump in quality, whereas InFamous 2 just looks better. Still a good score and I'll be picking it up when it drops in price.

Remember kids 6 isn't a bad score It's somewhere between good and decent.

Also, pile of shite? Really? REALLY?

Bloody kids of today.

Classic EDGE. Gotta keep that rep up.

I've been playing inFamous 2 for the last two hours and I think its awesome, my joint game of the year so far (with Portal 2), however I would say if you didn't enjoy the first game then you won't enjoy the sequel.

write in Mark ,they might give you a job, then you can secretly bump up the Sony exclusive scores.

if it gets a six in Edge it doesn't mean it's a bad game or that you won't enjoy it. you're too long in the tooth not to know that anyway.

The Edge bashing on this site is ridiculous. I'm off for a cigar now and to straighten my cravat.

It's bloody ridiculous how people slam things for 'borrowing from other games' like those other games own that idea. :roll:

Just started playing the original today after downloading it for free. Absolutely loving it, though I have hardly scratched the surface. I remember playing the demo when it came out and hating it - just goes to show you can't judge an awful lot from playing a tiny section of the game.

If I enjoy the rest of inFamous as I have the first few hours I'll definitely get the sequel. Why on earth is there a level-builder included in it though?!

I don't mind it when people complain that games 'borrow' from other games. This 'borrowing' is expected and I don't mind it most of the time but if you borrow too much you're game won't be original. Very few games borrow and make better IMO.

However, I'd like reviewers to be consistent. It seems that sometimes they get some momentum complaining and then this issue comes up. Because you just know there's so many games Edge will have rated higher that has 'borrowed' from other games but they have failed to mention it.

One mans 6/10 is another's 9/10

Scores don't mean s**t as long as you enjoy it. Unless it's Naughty Bear, if you enjoyed that then you're past help.... best bet is possibly an exorcism.

Splitter - I was a lot like you. Hated a trial demo but with the free game Infamous 1 has been gripping me.
I have almost finished (it takes a lot of time) and the missions do get better and better :lol:

I can't wait for infamous 2 ... well actually I can - when it reaches £30 :lol:
