InFamous: Festival of Blood Review

The thing about hunting vampires at Halloween is, well, you're going to have some problems with collateral damage. Take yesterday evening as an example. 'Pyre Night' celebrations had gripped New Marais pretty hard, real honest-to-goodness bloodsuckers were thronging the streets, and around the town square, I was laying into the undead left, right and centre, and feeling pretty good about things.

That's until I started to realise that some of them weren't actually undead. Some of them were just, y'know, dead - partygoers in fancy dress costumes who I'd been cheerfully lamping for the last ten minutes or so. Thoughts to the families.

Such hazards come with the territory as far as Festival of Blood's concerned. Sucker Punch's latest electrical adventure - it's not DLC, really, as you can play it without owning InFamous 2 - is an old-fashioned Halloween Special when you really get down to it. It's cheesy, it's creepy, and it's pleasantly inconsequential.
