ScreenCritics Claudiu revisits one of the PlayStation 4's early offerings - 'Infamous Second Son'. Does it hold up several years later?
You know this wasn't a PS4 launch title right? It came out in 2014, not 2013
The title and the article still incorrectly say it came out in 2013 though
Just started an evil playthrough last night and already be at it as a hero when I first got my Pro so it definitely holds up. Just annoying having to sit through cutscenes when on a 2nd run.
Did the same recently. Although I enjoy short cutscenes. We're talking Metal Gear here, so it's fine. Evil felt more like how it "should" be, even though I originally thought he was naturally good. Maybe we find out if there is ever a 4th one? Make sure to play First Light as well. Neon is just great.
Yet to play SS but did enjoy First Light.
Just replayed this last week for the first time since launch. Played it on the PS4 Pro on a 65" Samsung KS8000 (upgrade from an old Sammy 50" plasma), and 4K and HDR take a game that looked amazing at the time and improves it noticeably. Game itself is still loads of fun. Did the evil playthrough this time, and it actually felt more like canon to me.
Thought this was a very fun game. The animations were noticeably awesome in this title. I never liked the infamous series but I really enjoyed this one. Edit: Fixed autocorrect
The same for me... I couldn't get into the first two games, but second son I beaten 3 times, plus I enjoyed first light also.
Nice. I did a good and evil play through which is a rare thing for me to do. First light was also great.
Really under appreciated title in my opinion, I had such a good time with it when it released. While not as good as the earlier Infamous titles and despite a kind of unlikeable protagonist, I think the game is still a cracker with fantastic production values and brilliant game play.
That's racist :p
Still impressive graphically and artistically can't wait to see sp's next outing
The game came out in March 2014 and was NOT a launch title... The game still holds up and on the PS4 PRO looks stunning.
Just picked this up and looking forward to playing it.
It was good but wasn't as good as 1 or 2.
I stopped playing after a couple of hours because it felt like forever before the game took the training wheels off and let you roam around, like the first two games did.
In regards of the story I'd agree but the gameplay of Second Son is the best of the franchise.
I like this game a lot. It's reminds me of Crackdown kinda.
It was a cool game, though I didn't enjoy it as much as the 1st Infamous.
