The Sinking City feels like a deliberate failure. There's no sign of a struggle to overcome the challenges of game design and the game fails to innovate or feel unique. Trodding through this rotten world, which is wrought with imperfections, ravaged by age-old bugs and an atmosphere that fails to convey the horror it aims for. The Sinking City fails to look Call of Cthulhu in the eye, let alone match Lovecraft's tales of fear and madness.
Despite all its flaws, A Way Out lives on as one of the most amusing games I’ve experienced till date. Playing with a buddy helps minimize boredom and while you are at it you can just joke around with the absurdities that the game puts before you or just chat casually like old friends do.
