    Second Son is easily the best game Sucker Punch has ever released, easily the best game available so far on the PS4, and easily the one game that every PS4 owner should purchase.

    It doesn’t stray off the series’ beaten path too much, but there are enhancements in terms of gameplay and some stunning effects put to good use to create the PS4′s most fun and best looking game yet...While the narrative might not have the same impact as previous games, it’s somewhat more of a down-to-earth tale of an ordinary man with extraordinary powers, and that’s an exciting new direction for the series to take.

    It plays great, and it looks even better, but its advancements also beg it to be held to a higher standard, one that its overall story and morality systems struggle to reach.

    At times, Infamous Second Son delivers great fun with its combat mechanics, yet a repetitive formula, combined with some hiccups and balancing issues, ultimately can't be ignored. It's an entertaining and visually beautiful piece of software, but it could've been much more.

    Second Son is better than the first two games: it's faster and much more satisfying. It's just a shame that Sucker Punch has not been able to make it the best of the genre due to a few slips and imprecise behaviors.

    InFamous: Second Son is good but unmemorable — essentially the diner food of video games.

    Second Son looks fantastic and from a technical perspective, it’s a pretty impressive feat especially given that the game is out less than six months from the release of the Playstation 4. Unfortunately the gameplay isn’t up to par with the light show. Like the neon that Delsin channels, it’s all light and no heat.

It offers beautiful graphics, an interesting story, with some very emotional writing, and amazing gameplay. The different powers are all brilliant, and you can never walk into a mission the same way. The characters are well written, and they seem to fit in naturally with the story. The karma decisions are fair, and the endings end well, with no open plot holes. The gameplay is also very fun, with a deep upgrade system, and the combat flows very well. Overall, inFamous is worth every penny of its price tag, and more. Expand

The game's only flaw is that it can be repetitive at times, and the ambient soundtrack is not that great.

    First, I confirm, it is absolutely gorgeous. Then, the gameplay is still the reference of the genre, way better than Prototype 2 or Saints RowFirst, I confirm, it is absolutely gorgeous. Then, the gameplay is still the reference of the genre, way better than Prototype 2 or Saints Row IV. However, even if unlocking and testing a new power is always a good moment, even if the city is a little small and the story a little poor, the real problem is the character development. At least, it is not as good as Infamous 1, where the power increase was perfectly paced. Expand

Graphically it's stunning, from the textures to the lighting/particle effects, everything looks crisp and beautiful, this, however, tanks the PS4s limited hardware, and causes framerate issues from time to time. The controls are tight, and the climbing is significantly better than inFamous 2's. The story is pretty great, and the SR3-like territory system is right at home here. The upgrade system is vastly improved, and the ability to switch between power-sets is very impressive. The gameplay is very good, with loads of story missions, many things to do on the side, and a massive open world to explore. However, this game still has it's drawbacks. It has it's fair share of pointless bosses, as well as numerous camera issues, and I even got stuck in the terrain once or twice. Overall, Second Son is a must have for any PS4 owner, and one of the most immersive console experiences to date (The online stuff is pretty cool too, honest).

    8/10 - AmAzInG, WhAt A gOoD gAmE!
