Most definitely the best of the series! They switched from comic cut scenes to real cut scenes, which I liked. And the story in this game was amazing. If you were as attached to Cole as I had become over the two games, this game was an emotional one. The story was done amazingly, and I barely wanted to quit playing. Even now, years later, this story stands out to me. And the new powers were awesome. I loved the lightning, but I liked switching it up.
Getting the fire flying abilities made it much more fun to travel around the city. It made it more fun trans versing the large city.
