I hate to sound like a nerdy super hero fanboy (which is exactly what I am), but I crawled up into a ball and screamed “I’m so excited!” halfway through this latest trailer forInfamous 2. It just looks like Sucker Punch have got the mix of gameplay, graphics, presentation, and explosions just right.
The footage shows off a range of new powers that main man Cole will pick up in the sequel. Ice and fire abilities join his usual electrical sweep this time around, meaning you can summon vicious ice spike-things to tear up the enemy or scorch them with some seriously hot area attacks. Throw in moves that let you hurl cars like snowballs and throw up hurricanes and you’re looking at one of the more creative action games of 2011.
