    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 is such a fun game to play, thanks to Delsin's superhuman abilities, the outstanding triple A graphics and a quite interesting story line. The game's only flaw is that it can be repetitive at times, and the ambient soundtrack is not that great.

    Infamous represents all that is wrong with the current AAA videogame model: it's epic, but superfluous; its main game mechanics are shallowInfamous represents all that is wrong with the current AAA videogame model: it's epic, but superfluous; its main game mechanics are shallow and boring; its plot is full of Hollywood clichés and, in the end, it feels more like a marketing tool than a real effort to provide gamers with something meaningful and with value. I completed this blah-fest in only 5 hours, I have no idea why it has a user rating of 7.8. Expand
