So, I will start this review out by stating that I never actually beat the first two Infamous games. But I had heard that it really wasn’t necessary in order for me to play this one, so I never got around to it. But I will say that playing this game makes we want to go back and play them even more. I had a blast playing Infamous: Second Son. Delsin is an awesome character.
So in this game, you control a character named Delsin Rowe (awesome name by the way) who is kind of just a punk kid. It is funny because how Delsin looks in this game looks exactly like an old friend of mine I used to work with at a movie theater. The likeness was uncanny. I could totally see him playing Delsin in real life. But, this game is super fun. The story is solid, the graphics are amazing, and you actually care about these characters. All of those are very important things and they make up this great game. But, as Delsin, you end up getting these powers in a freak accident. And as it happens, people with powers, now called “Bio-terrorists” are being hunted by this ruthless bitch named Augustine. And she hurts a couple friends of yours, and you want to go after her. That is our story. Is it straightforward? Yes. Does that make it less amazing? Hell no.
This game was some of the most fun I can remember having playing a game. Just messing around, doing cool stuff. This open world gives you a lot of shit to do. You can do like 20 different things in each area. Plus you can strengthen and enhance your abilities. It is just plain fun. The look of these abilities on screen is really badass. This game looks beautiful. No one can say these graphics suck, because they rock. Man, I love Playstation 4.
But as you go through this story, you care about other characters involved and there is actually a moment or two that kind of gets to you. I was kind of shocked that a fun game like this actually went into that territory. It is because Delsin is such a well-rounded character that we actually care about what happens. But that is because I made him a good guy. I didn’t do many evil things throughout the course of the game. Much credit goes to Troy Baker who does the voice acting for Delsin. He makes this character completely believable and awesome. That guy can voice act anyone I swear. If I had to throw out a negative on this game, it is that I wish there was a better way to differentiate good versus evil. There is a few pivotal parts where you choose good or evil. But for the most part, I wish there was more of these in the actual story to give us even harder choices.
I loved the ending too. This game is just awesome. I can’t say it enough. I enjoyed the shit out of it and I’m definitely going to play it again. But probably after I actually go back and play the other two.
