    I really enjoyed inFamous First Light on a number of levels, and if I had to compare it to The Last of Us’ Left Behind expansion, I would give the edge to First Light just for its additional challenges and replayability.

    InFamous: First Light feels grand due to its small size. In a flash you’ll receive tremendous neon powers to cross the city with great speed. Though these powers are what makes First Light great, the rest of the game is not to be underestimated. The famous comic like cutscenes, a modest amount of collectibles and challenges and a special Battle Arena mode take First Light beyond just feeling like InFamous Light.

    Abigail "Fetch" Walker, a sensitive rebel with her troubled past, who gladly hits others, especially when her brother's life is at stake. A long time ago, Brent ran away with her from home when her own parents had informed to DUP – those guys who help and protect, but somehow it does not match to their smile. It is a bad move to get Abigail mad – that is why it is such a joy to play as her. The main heroine of the separate First Light DLC for inFamous: Second Son is essentially more interesting than Delsin; she was already gripping your attention in the original game, considering. Therefore it is not surprising that its creators grabbed her and present her as a great addition, a must to all gamers who love superheroes rampage.

    inFAMOUS: First Light is never going to set the world alight, but if you’ve been gagging for more of Sucker Punch’s superhero series, then it will fill that hole until a full sequel charges onto store shelves.

    It's just a pity Fetch doesn't break from Second Son's tired mission design a little more. [Nov 2014, p.91]

    Infamous: First Light provides a bite-sized experience, a mere sliver of Second Son. It mirrors that games main themes and focuses on the best of its powers, but is let down a little by its bfrevity.

    If you're desperate for more inFamous content and can play Second Son with your eyes closed then First Light might be worth your time and money. The story being told, while familiar and unremarkable, is well told and playing around with Fetch's powers can be fun at times. Unfortunately, it's still a downscaled, smaller version of what we all did in the first game.

If you liked Infamous second son, there is no doubt that you will like that one. I enjoy how you can run without an end when you active the run sequence. I also love the pink rays left behind Fetch for a good 20s when you ran in a zone.
    The only negative thing I could say about this DLC/expansion/standalone is: Too short!

    I never bought Infamous First Light, and got this expansion for free with the PlayStation Plus free games of the month. Even with minimalI never bought Infamous First Light, and got this expansion for free with the PlayStation Plus free games of the month. Even with minimal background information, I still felt this game explained itself pretty well and kept my attention for the 2+ hours. The graphics are good, the story isn't bad, but the rating is weighed down to a 8 because I feel like they are constantly scrambling for ways to keep game play going during sections, and it ends up just being a little repetitive in the end.

    Cool prequel with super upgraded neon power. Also liked the snowy part but the trainings were boring.
    The story is, at least, a bit better

    It's inFAMOUS Second Son with less content, and that's about it. If it floats your boat, then it's for you, if it bores you like it bores meIt's inFAMOUS Second Son with less content, and that's about it. If it floats your boat, then it's for you, if it bores you like it bores me after a short while of understanding how the game plays, then, well, bad luck. There isn't much to find in this game at all other than its gameplay, and its gameplay isn't anything of legends. It's just a neat little action game, and that's it. Not a must have. Expand

It wasBad BAD BAD, I got really mad, i paid 15 euro for such a small duration game ( i know its a DLC ). The game lasted 6 hours of playing. It was so easy and its not like second son that you might have left things unseen on the game. Really disturbing game. A Poor creation after Second Son! Expand
