Infamous: First Light review: Highlighting the heroine

Despite being one of the standout console exclusives of 2014, Infamous: Second Son had one egregious flaw — we never got to know any of the secondary characters. Some of the best moments of the Infamous series revolve around the interactions between the protagonist and his companions, but Sucker Punch failed to flesh out the colorful cast in Second Son. Infamous: First Light is how they’re going to fill in the blanks. More →

Review: ‘Infamous: Second Son’

Infamous: Second Son made me want to move to Seattle. The brilliant, yet occasionally frustrating thing about a new generation of consoles is how distracting the visuals can be. The Seattle of Infamous: Second Son is vibrant, gorgeous and impeccably detailed, enough to lure you away from the task at hand to poke around and see just how much effort was put into the creation of this world. When you’re finally ready to get back on track, you’re going to find yourself immersed in the best single-player campaign of any game on the PlayStation 4. But is that enough? More →

Video: Eight minutes of sprinting and smashing in Infamous: Second Son

March is the month of killer apps. Titanfall launched to rave reviews earlier this week, giving Xbox One owners a reason to speak to their consoles once again, and now Sony’s biggest exclusive of 2014 is right around the corner. If you’re curious about Infamous: Second Son, you can finally see what we played through last week during our hands-on time with the game, complete with all that gorgeous dynamic lighting and Neon-fueled city traversal. Taking the evil path, as the player did in this video, gives Delsin access to a separate set of missions with a sinister bent, using lethal force rather than handling protesters and the DUP through nonviolent means. Check out eight full minutes of gameplay from the PS4 exclusive below. More →

Preview: ‘Infamous: Second Son’ is a huge leap forward for the series

What really stands out about Infamous: Second Son is the fluidity of movement. Everything feels fast, almost in opposition to the beautifully detailed city of Seattle, sitting dormant before you, waiting for you to wreak havoc or quell the violence. If you want Seattle to crumble around you as you and the other Conduits rampage through the streets, you have that option. If you’d rather take a non-violent approach to the anti-Conduit soldiers, you can do that too. As with the rest of the Infamous series, Second Son is about choice. More →
