The game centers on a 24 year old delinquent called Delsin Rowe, who accidentally absorbs the powers of a superhuman "conduit", and is interrogated by force by the concrete-powered head of the Department for Unified Protection, Brooke Augustine. She and her organisation are out to capture and detain all super-powered humans. Delsin sets off from his tribal home with his straight-laced cop brother Reggie to confront Augustine and topple the authoritarian D.U.P. Along the way he meets others who have great powers, and gets a chance to use them.
This is a really fun game. Delsin's various powers are incredibly satisfying to use, and the fluidity of the controls helps to feel as empowered as Delsin is in the game. You start off with the ability to throw fireballs at people, and as the game progresses you gain other cool powers such as Neon and Video. Enemies can prove quite tough at first if you are a newcomer to this franchise, but after a while defeating them becomes fun and fairly easy. The graphics are superb, the makers of this game really went to town to make the fictionalised Seattle setting seem realistic, with gleaming puddles of water and stunning sunsets and textures. The usually dependable Troy Baker does a good job with Delsin, and the supporting cast are equally strong. The dynamic between the livewire main character and his sensible brother makes for some great interaction.Read more ›
- This is probably the best looking game available on any console right now.
- The voice acting is top notch and the motion capture is the best I've ever seen.
- Character and power animation is similarly impressive.
- Delsin feels agile and easy to control.
- The power sets are superb and are well explained in game.
- The combat is empowering and requires some actual strategy.
- Seattle is beautifully realised and navigation feels natural. Textures are high-res and the attention to detail is astounding.
- The game never seems to load and there is almost no texture pop-in, which is incredible for an open world game!
- Delsin's enthusiasm for his powers rubs off on the player.
- The karma system adds replay value and, depending on your choices, changes the tone of the game. You'll probably want to play through twice.
- 'Paper Trail' missions are to be added weekly, reportedly providing 5 hours of additional free content.
- The game doesn't take itself too seriously. Its greatest ambition seems to be the pursuit of FUN.
- At 10 - 16 hours, the game isn't short, but it could be longer.
- There are no actual side quests, only 'side content', which often requires players to collect, destroy or spray paint things and is pretty uninspired (I'm not counting the 'Paper Trail' missions as they are not on-disc).
- Delsin's quips can be a little arrogant/cheesy, which might be off putting to some people.
- The karma system doesn't even hint at a full moral spectrum (a-la Mass Effect/Witcher 2), only allowing players to be fully good or fully bad.
- The frame rate occasionally falters, though this is rare.
- The lack of a day/night cycle is disappointing.Read more ›
Definite;y worth picking up though if you can.
However, the problems which manifested in the previous games, particularly in inFamous 2, haven't really been addressed by Sucker Punch. Parkour is still imperfect and can be a cause of frustration as your character routinely gets caught in geometry. The gameplay mechanics also tend to get quite repetitive. The setting, Seattle, is beautifully drawn but is lifeless. Combat can become tedious and a chore as your character becomes a bullet sponge for hordes of enemies who spawn aggressively as soon as they are triggered. The traversal superpowers are impressive but your combat powers feel underbaked and really Naughty Dog should be focusing more on incorporating environmental damage as part of the gameplay, particularly given the extra power of the PS4.
For me the first inFamous game remains my favourite. inFamous 2 really felt like inFamous 1.5 to me, with some retrograde steps. Second Son is a graphically impressive title but in pure gameplay terms hasn't really moved that much further on from the first inFamous game.
Finally, I found the story and the writing to be particularly weak, accompanied by a "phone it in" voice performance from the normally excellent Troy Baker.
Newcomers to the series may enjoy it more than veterans, who may find it far too familiar for their liking.

Great game. Enjoyable, great visuals. I enjoyed the first 2 inFamous on the PS3, so I had high expectations for this one- I'm happy those expectations were met. 5/5Published 8 days ago by H. Nahary
Love this game. One of the few games where I enjoy just messing around rather than following the main story. Visuals are unbelievable, even at 2 years old. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Robbie S. Webb
Really fun game. Played through both endings and both were great. For some reason I was sent the American version though.Published 14 days ago by RyanC
