Developer: Sucker Punch Productions

Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Release Date: March 21, 2014

Played Platform: PS4

 

A good sandbox game if you enjoy superpowers and cause havoc. Especially for the price that I paid for this ($10).

Things I liked:

  • Sandbox game in Seattle
    • Explore around and doing side-missions
  • Travel around the map with superpowers
    • Reminded me of the game Prototype
    • Different types of attacks
  • Can switch powers by draining their respective attribute
    • Each power is somewhat unique
  • Can choose to be the good or bad guy
  • Interesting use of the Dualshock 4
    • Holding a spray can and spraying walls – need to get used to it because I’m left-handed
    • Using the pad in the middle as a touchpad to do various actions
  • Able to 100% without a walkthrough guide

Things I did not liked:

  • Can’t use the melee attack while mid-air
  • Can’t swim
  • Can’t reset the camera while running around while trying to kill enemies
    • Or at least have a lock on feature
  • Accidentally kills civilians in the middle of battle
  • Can’t skip cutscenes
    • The developers said that it’s either cutscenes or a loading screen to load the map and such
  • Encountered bugs in the last mission
    • Went through the wall while climbing the building
    • The final boss disappeared when battling
  • It’s a lot easier to build up the special attack as an evil person compared to a good person
  • EDIT (8/6/17): 
    • You can’t use the smoke special skill (Arial drop) with a low ceiling
    • Checkpoints in this game on some missions are far apart
