inFamous: Second Son; Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F; Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition: Gaming reviews
inFamous: Second Son
Exclusive to the PS4, the newest in the inFamous series shows how next-gen graphics should look. As likeable rogue Delsin, players must pick a moral path to decide whether he'll be good or bad throughout. It's an exhilarating ride gliding through Seattle to take on all-seeing DUP enemies, with his neon "Conduit" superpowers flashing across and a smooth, integrated use of the DualShock 4. While lacking in combat and mission variety, the gritty open-world environment is definitely worth discovering. A slick and sexy adventure from Sucker Punch.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F
PS Vita, PS3 (£23.99)
As Vocaloid (virtual pop star) Hatsune Miku, the challenge is to press or swipe the buttons in time with the corresponding symbols on screen. After initial training, you'll be thrown right into a tricky challenge of changing beats. There's a good mix of tracks, though a few less songs than the earlier PS3 version. It certainly suits handheld play on the Vita – as long as you won't be too distracted. This is one for fans of the genre: avoid if you have two virtual left feet.
Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition
PS4 (Free on PlayStation Plus)
Dead Nation is an arcade-style, twin-stick shooter that sees you battling zombies, alone or with help. The scenery is rather bland and increasingly repetitive, and the isometric camera can be very frustrating. The most interesting feature of play is that if you stream your game through the PS4's live streaming feature, viewers can influence the game by voting for more ammo or more zombies. This adds to an otherwise rather middle- of-the-road game.
