@Dictatroll I turned on the multiplayer after my first play through, and almost got to the part where I joined a game before realizing I that I should just play the game again. Still haven't gone back, but I've heard it's very good.

I hope they make a notoriety meter so that the more damage you do the more police pops up.

Well, that's a nice early release into the lifespan of the PS4. I'm looking forward to this game, having played the first two.

@Gatts1978 parkour, open world, super powers, wonderful graphics... what is not to love? :P

Avatar image for meedokicky

My most anticipated game on PS4! but I will probably not buy a PS4 that soon, I wanna wait and see if the console has hardware failures. also because there is still too much to play on PS3.

Avatar image for santinegrete

@meedokicky wise choice.

Avatar image for meedokicky

@santinegrete @meedokicky thanks, I just saw that their slim models are usually less problematic.

Avatar image for barrica
