Superb Super Powers
Like the other games in the inFamous franchise, First Light puts you in control of an exceptional individual who happens to have been endowed with some rather surprising powers. While the action is still centred around the city of Seattle, the cool new capabilities and the neon-soaked effects that they invoke really help it to stand out from the PS3 originals and the PS4 launch title.
Fetch even has the capability to completely embody light itself, letting you race around the map, scale buildings and cause carnage at a lightning pace. It is immense fun to move around, execute attacks on enemies and complete objectives with the new moveset.
While First Light is a bit of a prequel to Second Son, it does tie in with the world of the main game and divides itself over two time periods, relying on solid narrative devices to keep you involved with the characters. The excellent facial animation is intact here and there are few open world games that convey a sense of place quite so well as this one, all while keeping the story coherent.
If you loved Second Son or the other inFamous games and want to experience a small slice of the world, lasting about four hours in a single playthrough, then First light is a worthy purchase. It is also an affordable way to dip into the franchise and see what it has to offer if you are a newcomer.show less
