The video game titled Infamous: Second Son is out now and it has both plus and minus points. While the graphics are funky, the script behind the characters is pretty stale.
Computer games, be they on PS4 or Xbox One, are proliferating at a rampant rate that threatens to overtake their popularity among the gaming population. The fact that many are beginning to copy and cheat not to mention steal foreign ideas from other game makers is cause for concern.
Flappy Bird too is such a mix-and-match game that has become wildly liked by everyone from the teenage angst-ridden nerd to the business executive with a little extra time to kill. But one game that has recently emerged from Sucker Punch Studios is Infamous: Second Son.
It features a guy named Delsin who has superpowers that can be used for both good as well as evil purposes. The gamer thus has a choice to take on whichever karmic debt he likes via Delsin’s adventures in the city. The destructive (and constructive) moves that get played out on the game’s platform will thrill and fill with their satisfying power.
The city portrayed in the game is Seattle. And the landscape and actions are truly amazing to gaze at in their marvelous unfolding sequences on the screen.
Delsin is quite a character with a secret: super powers. And the fun part is that he has free will. As events unfold, the game appears to be repeating the same old story line in a rehashed manner.
The tired nature of the superficial avatars has only one saving grace: the depth of graphic novelty and crystal clear imagery that sparkles and bedazzles with its sharpness. Most of the sequences have a quality to them that makes for repetitive actions that are old hat.
But it is in the seeing that the secret of this game lies. And that is the sole plus point that makes it worth a shot. Play and be treated to a series of scenes that will indeed leave you with a dopamine high.
Infamous: Second Son now available for $59.99 on Amazon.
