Second Son is a departure in tone for the Infamous series, but its superpowered action lives up to expectations.

The graphics are a great advert for the power of the PlayStation 4, but in terms of gameplay and story this hasn't moved on at all from the previous generation.

A beautiful game with a handful of interesting ideas that simply doesn't give you enough to do with its tools. Second Son is a great example of the PS4's power, and works as a decent stop-gap until bigger and better exclusives appear.

Audience Reviews

Fun game! Story is what it is, but fresh powers being continually introduced kept reinventing gameplay. Also one of the best technical showcases for this console I’ve seen.
