moves is very limited, there are about five different special moves that just
have a different look as you change your powers – and though the story is
exciting at times and picks up towards the end, the main character Delsin is a
bit bland, and they just kind of throw him into the thick of it without a strong
backstory and the trope of helping a woman.
That aside I still played it until the end and got a lot of time and
enjoyment out of it, and you can always play it again and choose to be evil
