This is the first console game for PS4 I was able to play. Second Son was extremely fun to play during the two playthroughs it took to platinum it. Although the story was fairly short and certain things become repetitive (side quests) the game was extremely well done in terms of creativeness in power sets, and the graphics were beautiful, most of the time. There was one time I did get suck in a wall, and sometimes in-game obstacles hinder view when entering aiming-mode.
The villain path was much for fun than playing hero, everyone hates you and you get into much more scuffles than you would the hero way. That, and you don't really need to be concerned for collateral damage.
I enjoy platform adventure/action games, and this was a nice taste on whats to come for the PS4. Although not in my top-10 due to the lack of replay value, this is still a great game if you enjoyed the franchise, or just want to go around getting into fights.
If you were a fan of the the first two but arn't sure weather to play this one, you should wait no longer and pick it up. Some would call it a squeal but as a fan of 1 and 2 this is defiantly a spin off. I enjoyed the new gameplay mechanics and loved all the diverse powers you are offered through out the campaign. I recommend beating the main story only because the side missions tend to get tidies and you began to feel irritated. overall it was a great rental but the next one needs to be a real squeal to the first 2. Kukos to sucker punch
