Infamous first light is a prequel to Second Son which follows Abgail “Fetch” Walker and her adventures prior to the events of second son.
The game has made a wise move and only focuseson one power, neon. This makes the game seem a lot more streamlined at makes you become an expert on just the one power. Because this is a lower budget game the game repeats many missions.
I expected First Light to look on par if not worse than Second Son but the game looks even better especiallyat night. So I guess this makes the game the best looking game on the market.
The game isn’t that long but you get what you pay for.
The game has a better and more diverse line up of characters thatstrays away from blanket stereotypes which fetch was in the previous game. I also think that it was a clever idea to ditch the good and evil karma system because it didn’t make much of a difference in Second Son. This game is better paced than the previous but there is a double cross in the game which is just there to keep the game going and give it a more distinct villain than just poorly dressed Russians. However there are quite a few good plot twists that you don’t see coming.
The characters that do return are voiced by the same people from Second Son which is great because the cast of Second Son was really good.
The menus are very similar to the last game but the upgrade tree has been cleaned up a bit which is nice.
First Light was a huge surprise for me being a standalone downloadable content game which was a disappointment. I think first light is my game of the year. Infamous: First Light gets 3 and a half stars out of five.
