Game Review - Infamous First Light on PlayStation 4

Written by Alpha_Lambda_Man on July 15, 2018 @ 1:55 am

Story - We see Fetch return as a prequel to the original InFamous game. The game is presented in a series of flashbacks to set the story while placing you in an arena for you to play a series of challenges. Even though the challenges are fun, they do feel forced as filler for the game and make it worth its $15 price tag. The flashbacks take place in the first section of Seattle and has several activities to stay busy. Unlike Delsin's side missions, the activities for Fetch also seem like filler rather than a clear objective. Delsin went for these missions to bring down the DUP while we only feel inclined to seek out these side missions to upgrade our powers.

Graphics - The graphics remain the same as the main game. It's still an impressive feat and the water effects are top notch. I was always impressed with the neon particles and they made the right move of choosing Fetch as the main character for this added content.

Gameplay - Some people might complain of the limitation of having just one power instead of four like in the original. However, this gave the developers even more time to focus on the extent of its powers. While Delsin could only scratch the surface of 4 abilities, Fetch was able to master her own and produce some incredible feats that we did not see in the main game. I'm sure Delsin might achieve them over time but Fetch was able to do it faster because of her natural powers and it was her only focus.

Overall, the game brings more of what made the main game fun. It has interesting characters but it also lacks some depth. Many of the content feels forced and they could've done a better job at integrating it to the world and circumstances.
