Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualAdaptation: To ''Literature/MichaelVey.'' Both stories have protagonists with electric powers, the hero's best friend is a chubby tech genius, and the BigBad is a CorruptCorporateExecutive who turns out to be a [[spoiler: BoomerangBigot]].

Added DiffLines:

** The ability to locate Blast shards regardless of distance was likely implemented due to the tedious short-range radar system of the previous game.


Added DiffLines:

** While the mission creator is mostly well done, it lacks some features that really limits your creativity, such as the lack of a Karma detector, the inability to make cars drive [[note]]They can be made to move with the physics editor, but making one to look like it's driving somewhere is pretty darn difficult[[/note]] and the relatively small memory you're allowed to use, although the last one is a limitation forced by the PS3. The swear filter has also been criticized, mostly because it also censors words [[DoubleStandard that the main characters use frequently throughout the story mode.]]

* BrokenBase: Pre-release, Cole was heavily redesigned to resemble [[VideoGame/{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake.]] The backlash against this was large enough for Sucker Punch to reconsider and change Cole back to his original design.

* EvenBetterSequel

to:

* EvenBetterSequelEvenBetterSequel: The game did much to improve upon what was in the first game, with more powers, smoother gameplay, and even more characters to appreciate. Storywise it's a bit more divisive compared to the first game, but it's still a strong enough story on its own.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Almost happened. Cole's redesign initially looked like [[http://infamous.wikia.com/wiki/File:IF2_Cole_Concept_Art2.png this]], but fan outcry was so bad that Sucker Punch changed him back to how he looked in the first game.



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Nix is supposed to be sympathized with because [[spoiler: Bertrand killed her parents]]. However, she comes off as a homicidal sociopath. The only thing you could say in her favor was that [[spoiler: she was willing to sacrifice herself for the RFI]].

* HellIsThatNoise: The first encounter with a Ravager, a Devourer, the Behemoth, the exploding Corrupted you first see after [[spoiler:Kuo is kidnapped]], and random fights that break out in the streets.
** Also during the mission where you are traveling through the swamp with Nix, there comes a point where you hear a loud stomping and growling sound in the distance, but Nix tells you to ignore it. [[spoiler: You hear the exact same sound later when you fight [[FridgeBrilliance Bertrand]]]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Kuo's reluctance to [[spoiler: sacrifice herself when the RFI gets activated]]. Even if the RFI was the only way to [[spoiler: stop the Beast, which could kill millions]], anybody in that situation would be apprehensive about giving up their lives suddenly unless they were suicidal. Not helping matters is that many people with the Conduit Gene had to [[spoiler: die without knowing why]]. However, despite that, she's painted as a DirtyCoward.
