I was very curious about the complaints on the side missions issue. It ain't a big deal if you're new to infamous. Since i only played the demo of the previous game, i consider myself to be new to infamous so i dont think the side missions are boring even if most, not all are repetitive lol. Speaking of side missions; It was awesome using my DUALSHOCK4 as a spray paint can. My only complaint about the game is Delsin's building climbin' and walking or running through edges and beams. Climbing a building or anything else high without pressing the X button constantly wouldve been a breeze but thankfully with the powers Delsin gets through his progression prevents parkour climbing from being a problem. The main missions are fun and funny and some even simple yet challenging. Not bad Sucker Punch. This IS a first taste of next gen power on the PlayStation 4 with infamous second son and it is a great title. I'm looking foward to the next game with excitement. I'll give this one an 8 because of the nice graphics and most of all decent smooth gameplay. Climbing buildings and walking on edges are NOT included lol.
I tend to enjoy story based games much more than grinders; infamous delivered, with visible next-gen graphics oomph. It helps that I am familiar with Seattle, so seeing the pseudo-Seattle that the game is set in had an extra kick or two ;)
A number of reviewers complained that there's relatively little story and a lot of repetitive here's-how-you-clean-a-district. That's true, but for me the way to plot was woven into the game worked just fine (I never got bored and played through in one multi-day session).
One thing in particular I really enjoyed were the super-powers in this game. The designers went inventive, so these are not cookie-cutter systems you are used to from other sandbox games. I just with the origami-super power from the free DLC was available for player use :)
