Quotes

Delsin Rowe: [from the trailer] Okay, I got this whole thing figured out. We hit the town, then maybe swing by the Space Needle - always wanted to see it - and then we're back home to save some lives.
Reggie Rowe: [seeing the obvious flaw in Delsin's "plan"] You do realize when we "hit the town", there's a fair chance the town's gonna... you know... hit back?

Ps4 finally has its 1st great game
22 March 2014 | by chris_rowe-881-168820See all my reviews

I've had a PS4 since day one and have been massively disappointed in terms of games, we had the average killzone and the pitifull knack whilst the xbox had forza titanfall dead rising and ryse. It's taken 5 months to get its first worthwhile exclusive and boy was it worth the wait.

Infamous on the ps3 was a good game, it wasn't ever going to get as much attention as it is by being the debut big title on the ps4. This game is fun, that's the main thing everyone wants, it's fun for 15 minute messing about and it's fun for a 4 hour gaming session.

Graphically it is superb, the detail is awe inspiring and the effects are flawless, occasionally there is a slight texture glitch, bug that's to be expected with the amount of action being done on screen. The voice acting is great and the characters have rarely looked closer to being actual human beings, sometimes in cut scenes it's startling how real they look, from the hair to the mannerisms. Delsin is probably the most detailed but overall most characters are of a high standard.

Here's a tip, if you see a game with the lead character voiced by Troy baker you know its good, the last of us, mgs v , batman and bioshock infinite all had his voice and were all classics.

Story modes good, the standard good vs evil choices exist. The only issue is the story doesn't truly reflect if you've chosen to go down the evil route, you can see an effort has been made to use to cover both bases but his interactions in cut scenes after being so evil don't really add up other than that can't complain. The choices can be a bit unnatural and not really fit in with the fast flowing action. I have completed both modes so there is definitely an ins entice to play through both good and evil.

The gameplay is good solid fun, the only issue could be it's fairly repetitive, although you unlock different powers, the actions you make and things you have to do don't change much, for me it didn't matter, I was constantly blown away by the detail and effects so never got tired of it.

It has intelligent AI, they run for cover, shoot dodge and act well compared to games like killzone where the computer opponents seemed to be blind and act irrationally. Overall it's well made, entertaining and the true first must bug on ps4.

Tonnes of replayability , it's just down right fun, gorgeous graphics mixed with a decent story and amazing effects! What more can you want, easily a must buy and a positive step to the ps4 being the only true next gen console.

It has a steep learning curve and some of the stuff you need to do is not explained that clearly, like any game there are tiny flaws but overall its a breath of fresh air.

Is it the best game out on ps4? Arguably tomb raider, assassins creed 4 are probably the two best, but with ground zeros and infamous things are looking up! Online may have been a good addition but there is none but overall it's the first and best exclusive that'll make the ps4 stand out, solid 1080p smooth graphics means the xbox one would have had a glitch filled unpolished version if it was a cross platform title.

9/10
