Infamous Second Son & Killer Is Dead Reviews
Over the weekend I finally beat Killer Is Dead, and a friend and I beat Infamous Second Son. These two reviews will be short and quick because honestly that’s all these games really need. Feel free to comment and ask any other questions if needed.
First off is Infamous Second Son.
GAMEPLAY – 10 Out Of 10 – The gameplay was well done and combat was fast and fluent, but the one flaw is the camera made it difficult to see things sometimes as it took weird angles every now and then.
GRAPHICS – 10 Out Of 10 – The game was very beautiful looking. So good job to them on that.
CONTROLS – 10 Out Of 10 – I had no problem with the controls. Infamous S.S. used all aspects of the controller from sound to touch pad and it wasn’t a problem at all.
STORY – 10 Out Of 10 – Now this is the big one. A 10 for the story because I enjoyed it a lot. The story in this one was much better than the others, and I believe it’s the fact that my motivation in the story felt extremely personal from the very beginning of the game. Another thing I should note is that while some may not agree, becoming Infamous on the moral scale is much more rewarding than than being good. In the other games it seemed like they geared you into being good, but in this one taking the evil route feels right when going through the game. So that’s exactly what my friend and I did.
REPLAY VALUE – 5 Out Of 10 – I don’t really see a point into playing it over again unless you want to take the moral route that you didn’t take first time around, but the powers don’t really seem all that different for the most part. Some conversations and events will play out a bit differently too, but in the end they don’t make THAT much of a difference.
Now on to Killer Is Dead.
GAMEPLAY – 8 Out Of 10 – Combat was very fast paced and full of action, but there didn’t really seem to be any real combos in the game for the most part. Nothing wrong with hacking and slashing away, but in a game like this I just wanted more combos lol.
GRAPHICS – 8 Out Of 10 – Not the best graphics in the world, but you have to remember that this is a Suda game (Suda 51, producer) and it’s supposed to be weird and unique in it’s own style. I enjoyed the graphics either way even if it wasn’t a Suda game.
CONTROLS – 10 Out Of 10 – The controls felt fine so no real complaints here. They were easy to remember and execute when moving around and in combat.
STORY – 5 Out Of 10 – There was a story somewhere in the game, but it was a little hard to follow at times. Basically the gist of it is that the main problem of all the happenings in the game is a guy named David. At the end of the day the name David and Dark Side Of The Moon” are the only things you need to remember. Or you can do the latter and not care about the story, and just play through it destroying everything in your way until the sum everything up towards the end lol
REPLAY VALUE – 2 Out Of 10 – Two out of 10 only because there are some unlocks once you beat the game for the first time, and you may want to beat the game on another difficulty setting.
Infamous Second Son was pretty bad ass and a lot of fun to go through and overall I give it an 8 out of 10. As one of the few PS4 games out there right now, I’d pick it up and give it a go.
While fun and unique Killer Is Dead could’ve done better with the story. It kind of makes me feel bad that such great characters went to waste as the game didn’t really pull out their full potential. I liked our characters in the game and would like to see more of them in another game with a better story.
