    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!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It amazes me that the critics are being so critical of this new dlc. I think that the story is great, a huge improvement over Second Son's story which wasn't great. Fetch is a far more likeable and engaging character then Delsin who I thought wasn't great either. The gameplay is still great even though Fetch only has one of the four powers that Delsin has but Neon is by far the most fun power. The detail of the map is still great and I personally love how the colourful stream of light follows you as you run and you can turn around and see the stream which formed through the route that you just took. The story takes between 4 and 5 hours to complete. Laura Bailey's performance as Fetch is just as good as she was in Second Son. The graphics are stunning.
    The arenas are of course the biggest addition to inFamous First Light which lets you fight waves of enemies in an arena which feels very arcade like and I found it very addictive to get a good highscore.
    In closing, this game is great value for money at 15 Euro/Dollars and everyone should play this, You don't need Second Son to play this if you didn't already know but you get to play as Delsin in the arenas if you still have your save file. Just the most fun I've had with game all summer.

TheI find this a much better game compared to INfamous: Second Son. The story line and game-play is more complex and overall more fun. The likable character of fetch combined with her strong love for her brother makes the game feel more personal. The arena is my second favorite part, it is the perfect mix combat skill, tactical skill and competition. The ability of showing scores among other players really gives a sense of achievement and pride. This gave is greatly improved compared to its predecessor. Expand

The story dives into her past in the form of a interview, you play across the past and present and in new locations not in Second Son such as the mysterious 'Crudan Cay Detention centre'. The game offers different powers to Delsin as it only focuses on Fetch's Neon abilities, however these abilities differ massively and are some what better than Delsin's in Second Son. The game also adds arenas and area modes which are, in my opinion, the best feature of the game. There are 3 arenas and 2 game modes for each (Survival and rescue), both offering different objectives and play styles. A fantastic feature of this game is the new enemies and the ability to play the arenas as Delsin (good or evil) if you are an owner of Second Son on your PS4. All in all a fantastic game, differing in so many ways to Second Son but also providing the great core game and visuals. Only downside is the lack of the Good/evil karma system from Second Son but for £11 (or for FREE if you had PS Plus in January) you really can't complain. Expand

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
