Gameplay — 5/5
A split-screen co-op multiplayer, A Way Out is played from a third-person perspective. The game allows the players to play it in both local and online mode. In the game, the players control Leo and Vincent. They are the convicted prisoners who must escape the prison and undertake every necessary step to stay far away from the authorities.
In the prison, the players are introduced to different challenges and situations. They must take different roles to deal with the situation. For instance, in one of the situations, one player shoulders the responsibility to distract a guard while the second one looks for a tool that could help them in escaping. These roles are not fixed, thus, the players can swap them during the playthrough. Both Leo and Vincent can interact with non-playable characters as well.
Apart from all the action, thrill, and adventure, the players also come across emotional moments in the game. On the whole, the unique storyline of A Way Out makes it a game never seen or played before.
Controls — 5/5
The controls of the game keep every button on your PS4 controller busy. You can move your character with the left stick and camera movement can be done with the right one. For focus/aim/brake, hit the L2 key. For fire/throttle/melee, there is R2 key. To interact or take cover, there is the square key. For dialogue, triangle key is there and to cancel anything, circle key should be pressed. Lastly, the X key can be used to jump, roll, climb, and chapter select.
Replay Value — 3.5/5
There is no way you and your friend can stay away from the game while you are in the middle of it. The situations and challenges that the game brings always keep you on your toes. However, once you are done with the whole of the story, there is a thin chance that you would play the game all over again. Perhaps you may want to play the entire story again with a new friend.
