Our pick of the titles that stood out at the German games convention.
inFamous 2 - PS3
Having super powers is a pretty sweet deal. Having super powers in an open world game where you can do what you want, when you want is even sweeter. inFamous 2 takes the popular formula set by its predecessor and makes things bigger, better and generally more bad-ass. This time around, the game's protagonist, Cole, has a new weapon known as the Amp, which brings him far closer to his adversaries than ever before. Trying this out on the show floor, we were impressed at how cinematic the combat felt; the camera swoops and swishes and slows down time as it follows Cole's relentless assault on his enemies. The resulting action is very satisfying to play indeed.
