Kotaku‘s “Best Game Music of 2011” is a multi-part series in which we’ll be discussing the best video game soundtracks of the year. Today, we’ll take a look at the New Orleans-tinged superhero music of Sucker Punch’s inFamous 2.
One of the things that’s always a challenge in superhero games is giving the character new powers as they go. Infamous 2 got to bypass Cole McGrath’s origin story, and as a result introduced new powers while presenting a faster-moving, more enjoyable story than the first game.
Later this year, Infamous 2 fans will be able to download Infamous 2: Festival of Blood, a standalone adventure for Sucker Punch’s open-world superhero PS3 game.
