Infamous Second Son is an open world, action-adventure video game for the PlayStation 4. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony Computer Entertainment, it was released on March 21, 2014. Like in previous Infamous games, the player-controlled protagonist possesses superpower abilities that players use in combat. After acquiring smoke powers from a rogue Conduit, protagonist Delsin Rowe travels to Seattle to fight against the D.U.P. Over the course of the game, Delsin acquires new powers and becomes either heroic or villainous based on player-made choices. Gameplay: In Second Son, players control the main character Delsin Rowe from a third-person perspective and freely roam open world Seattle. Parkour can be used to climb vertical surfaces like high-rise buildings. Delsin is a "conduit", which allows him to use superpower abilities by manipulating materials such as smoke and neon. These materials can be weaponized or used to deftly navigate the game world. Using powers depletes a meter in the head-up display (HUD), which can be replenished by drawing from power sources such as smoke from exploded vehicles. Delsin earns new powers as he progresses through the story, which sees him fight against the Department of Unified Protection during missions. Each time Delsin gains new powers he must destroy mobile D.U.P. command centers to learn the basic abilities that correspond to the respective power. Delsin upgrades and acquires new abilities by spending Blast Shards that are scattered throughout Seattle. By expanding Delsin's suite of abilities, players become more powerful in combat. Pros: Playstation Exclusive. Took full advantage of the hardware Cons: Unbalanced character powers Conclusion: It is a Playstation exclusive need I say more. Seriously, infamous is definitely an amazing game. A worthy successor. The graphics and gameplay complement each other. The main character, Delsin is your ideal character, Cocky, Overpowered, and Superhuman.
