From GameGuidedog Insiders:
I’ve played and thoroughly enjoyed the first two games in the franchise and was eagerly awaiting the third iteration. In fact, the reason I purchased a PS4 in its infancy state was for this game. I’m glad my purchase was not in vain.
I’ve completed the game as a hero in expert mode. The AI in expert is great. Although the story is pretty straight forward, it’s still good. Out of the three games in the franchise, this is the least challenging but still fun. I’ve begun to play the evil side of the game and will update my review once I’ve finished it.
1. Visually, this is the best looking game for the current generation of consoles.
2. Thus far, the story is engaging and I’m really enjoying the dialog. The voice acting is incredible. I really like the main character, he comes off as very believable. The first two games hosted Cole as the main character. He was dark even when playing as a hero. Delsin is the opposite and it works for me because too much of the same gets boring and he just fits very well.
3. The open world based on Seattle is gorgeous and full of life.
4. The gameplay is comparable to the first two in the series but smoother and more refined. The new powers are fresh and fantastic. Touch pad, controller speaker, and motion controls are implemented and it works extremely well.
Simply put, I’m having a blast with this game and that’s what is important.
Two weeks before the game launched, I created an account on a site called infamouspapertrail.com. Paper Trail is a site created by Sucker Punch that links to Infamous Second Son. A few days before the game lunched, I received a packet containing some sensory items and postcards. The instructions pointed me to the Paper Trail site and directed to take a test. The tests were based on visual, smell, and sound. It was a nice little addition that adds value to the game. By completing this test among a couple of other tasks on the site you open up a serious of missions within the actual inFamous game (you must link your PSN ID on the site).
These extra missions are a blast. They’re a mixture of “real-life” detective work on your computer and in-game content.
The collectors Edition includes a few physical items and an in-game digital vest (I added an image of the physical content on the product page). Is it worth the extra $20? That depends? If you love the franchise, yes! Can you live without is? That depends. If you get the standard version, you’ll miss out on some in-game DLC that’s only available with the Limited and Collector’s editions. This DLC will NOT be available for purchase later down the road so I highly suggest you purchase the Limited or Collector’s editions.
