    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!

    "inFamous: First Light" is the best kind of DLC: stand-alone, captures the spirit of the first game, and adds some new (and fun) gameplay. The"inFamous: First Light" is the best kind of DLC: stand-alone, captures the spirit of the first game, and adds some new (and fun) gameplay. The graphics are better than ever because the developer had more time to optimize the game. If you played "inFamous: Second Son", then you know the neon powers were the best powers. The DLC puts the Neon Powers on overload.

    Fetch is given her own story, and it wraps up nicely by the end of the DLC. The story is longer than the majority of expansions that give you little more than an additional mission. And compared to the brevity of "Second Son", the DLC has a surprisingly long story arc. The DLC nicely follows the trend of short, stand-alone downloads that leverage the resources of a retail release. ("Far Cry: Blood Dragon", "Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare", and "Dead Rising: Case West" are some other great examples of stand-alone DLC.)

    The DLC does not do everything right (hence the 9 out of 10). The final tier for each power is only unlocked after finishing the story. You can continue leveling up by completing boring mission in the cut down version of Seattle from "inFamous: Second Son" or by completing boring challenges in a concrete arena. Saving the best features to the end is bad enough, and saving the best features until after the end is a complete waste. Few if any players will keep grinding this game to unlock the final powers, and even when they do, there are no worthy challenges left to complete.

    Don't look at this game and judge it badly because it's a DLC about a female side character. Think of it as a prequel. The game is very solid,Don't look at this game and judge it badly because it's a DLC about a female side character. Think of it as a prequel. The game is very solid, maybe more enjoyable than some full length games. The story only lasts two hours, but it's one of those games that you will play more than once. This game is fun. No questions about it. Don't expect the story to be extremely deep or horrible. The story it's self can beat some full length games out there today. Playing First Light feels similar to Second Son which I like very much. The game's only $15, so if you hate it, you didn't lose very much. The challenge mode is very fun, and can keep you busy on those days when you've run out of games to beat. The graphics are beautiful, just like Second Son. This game gives you a backstory about fetch and what happens before Second Son begins. The game is very fun although there was no boss fight as there was in the other games. However, I don't know how a boss fight would have worked in this game though. Try this game. Don't be the snob that only plays $60 40 hour long AAA title games. TRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    While we already knew the story in First Light, thanks to Second Son, it is well fleshed out here and gives us a great female protagonist inWhile we already knew the story in First Light, thanks to Second Son, it is well fleshed out here and gives us a great female protagonist in Fetch. It also seems that while Delsin controlled well with neon, it feels as if neon was made for Fetch. In fact when i use Delsin in the combat arena it just doesn't feel the same or as fluid. Speaking of which, the combat arena is superb! What i like is that no matter how good you feel you are, you won't last forever. That and i liked the challenges as the gave me something to do. That said, the game doesn't feel as varied as Second Son, the side missions are okay at best and the challenges, while fun, hvae a few annoying ones. Like why can' i get these **** **** to stand on the **** platform?! Well it is a great expansion that adds to Second son and is worth the money. 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
