INFAMOUS: SECOND SON

Sucker Punch/Sony



Love DUP?

Not us, nor Delsin Rowe, nor his tribe, nor most anybody in Seattle. Well, other than members of DUP, which is an acronymistic way of saying ‘Department of Unified Protection’. Anti-government conspiracy theorists will be in like Flynn from this point, as the organisation is led by quite the corrupt bitch in Brooke Augustine and is just asking for all-out fiery attack.

Shit-scared of their abilities and wanting to experiment upon them, Augustine’s out to bring down all “Bioterrorists” (aka ‘Conduits’) – basically everyday folk with funky powers like weaponised smoke, neon, video and one other one. Having become instantly superpowered, these are the abilities you, as smart-mouthed Delsin, eventually master, and can flip between once first absorbed. As always you can be good or bad, with various rewards for either life choice. It’s an InFamous thing.

You’re tasked with missions to further the overarching anti-DUP cause, while also taking on do-gooder (or not) stuff like taking down drug gangs or smacking buskers upside their crappy acoustic guitars. Blast shard drones hover about begging for a quick spot of shot-downiness, enemy spies try to blend in, hidden cameras try to remain hidden, imprisoned conduits crave freedom and heavily-armed DUP patrols are around every second corner.

Basically, there’s lots to do – and we didn’t mention the DUP strongholds to infiltrate, shooting up cameras, checkpoints and, perhaps most importantly, generator thingies to bolster your already formidable powers before clearing districts of DUP presence.

If all that’s not enough, you also get to go all Banksy. It’s a fun, if unnecessary, diversion that utilises the DualShock 4 quite well.

If you’ve already experienced the InFamous life then this visually-upgraded, playfully tweaked ground zero of PS4 assault should be atop your shopping list. Bread and milk? Pah!

If you’ve not been acquainted then strap yourself in and feel the gees...

take me back to the start...
