    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!

It has a more appealing story and fetch is a much more like able character than Delsin. The neon power was my favorite in second son so having a game focus on the core power of neon was really fun. I love the fast pace of the melee and the battle arena is fun.
    Overall, this game is really fun and fast. Critics are dumb don't listen to them. This game is awesome especially for the price

It looks great and has great controls. This game expands on the character Fetch and fleshes out her story that was brushed upon in second son. The "neon" powers are also expanded upon and they were cool in second son but are completely amazing in this game. The only real problem was that the game is rather short but the cheap price helps make up for it. If there's a PS4 game you need to add into your collection it's this one. Expand

A good addition to the infamous series but it doesn't really add anything new. There is about 5 hours of story to play through as Fetch, a good length for it as it didn't feel drawn out for the sake of it.
    There is a battle arena element to the game which was good fun for an hour or 2 but after getting my platinum trophy I deleted the game.

    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
