I was one of the few people invited to try out the User Generated Content (UGC). Basically creating your own missions in Infamous 2. Call it Little Infamous Planet if you will.
You can create a mission from scratch, but
tThe UGC comes with around ten handy mission templates you can use to kick start your mission creations. I've created several unique missions with these. Like LBP you can upload missions for other Infamous 2 gamers to try out.
I've tried a ffew others, they vary between funny, challenging, weird and downright impossible.
The UGC beta does give you free run of a good sized area of New Marias so I'm able to say something about the look, feel and game play.
Firstly, New Marias looks fabulous compared to the first infamous. the artwork is more slick and colourful but still manages to retain the qualities that make the original game so unique. The controls are really intuitive. Cole is only marginally different from the first game, a bit leaner with different voice.
When you look at Infamous 2 and then read about the incredible customisable and multi-player features and functionality of Uncharted 3, it's easy to believe that you only need to by a handful of PS3 exclusives to last you a long, long time.
Almost as much fun as reading 'The Cloud Connection.'
