* 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.

--> '''[[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]''': "[...] Cole's fat comedy sidekick, who was most just an arse passin' in the first game but gains enough depth and character moments to almost become the emotional heart of the story."

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Joseph Bertrand III]] turns ordinary human beings into the Corrupted, performs cruel experiments on Lucy Kuo, uses the Power Transfer Device to turn Vermaak 88 into Forced Conduits in a process that will eventually drive them insane, was responsible for the sacrificial death of Nix's mother and several hundred others in his attempt to activate his own Conduit powers, and, angry that many Conduits appear normal while he, who voluntarily became a Conduit yet transformed into [[EldritchAbomination The Behemoth]], [[BoomerangBigot orders the execution of any Conduits or potential Conduits in the starting move towards total genocide]]. In addition to all that, he also planned on selling the Vermaak as personal soldiers to major powers around the world. Bertrand nearly started an arms race which might have sparked another World War, [[RunningBothSides in charge of both The Militia and, as The Behemoth, in charge of The Corrupted]], thus tugging the strings the whole time. Never fully seeming to realize how terrible a monster he's become, his KarmicTransformation is completely lost on him, despite the fact that the only power he unlocked through the murder of hundreds of innocents being the transformation into a ravenous monster; the only conclusion he draws from this is that [[InsaneTrollLogic if he has become a monster through the activation of his Conduit powers, then all Conduits are monsters, and must be exterminated]].
