The game doesn't have remarkable graphics, but still good for a sandbox. But it's a lot of fun. When you get familiar with the powers and combine them to take out the squads that come for you, it's pretty sweet. Plus, it has a light/dark path you can choose and it affects the story and gameplay, directly. You'll develop different powers (like in the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic series).

Sucker Punch is a game developer that is famous for the Sly Cooper Games, just the first three, and also the ones who create inFamous series. inFamous is a great game series that started out on PS3, first with the original game then the sequel, then did the Festival of Blood DLC for Halloween one year, and now they're at it again with Second Son.
Story for Second Son is very good, even better than inFamous 1 and 2 combined. Reason why is because the way the characters are and even the banter between Delsin and Reggie makes the story great even with Delsin trying to get the power that is killing his tribe off in order to save them. Morality is mainly the same as inFamous 2 was but more graphic and more consequences to deal with no matter if you play a hero or the villain/anti-hero (hence the name inFamous, since it is a evil morality ranking in the game). Overall the story is the best you can get on a PS4 only game for now.
Graphics and sound is very great for a next gen based game on PS4. Lighting and character detail and even the partical/destruction effects are realistic for next-gen. Also the game is at 1080p native but the Frames per second is at 60 but it sometimes look like it is not but it is because it doesn't move smoothly like Killzone Shadow Fall or Tomb Raider Definitive Edition for instance. This is great for tight situations in the game. Sound is even cool for a Ps4 only game.
Gameplay is great even with quite a bit of repeating infamous 2. Great thing is more powers, you get to start with smoke, then get neon, then video and at the end concrete. DLC such as Paper Trails will get you paper and also standalone DLC like First Light does extend the game with it and without it. Overall with the same old being refined and also added a bit is nothing bad and still is great.
Overall I give this game a 10 out of 10. A must buy for anyone that has a PS4 or is a fan of the inFamous game series.
