Cliched Story

Summary: A Way Out presents a unique and daring co-op experience that works as intended. While it's wrapped up in a less than original narrative, the mechanics provide plenty of engaging moments for you and a friend.

Game Information

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Genres: Interactive Story, Adventure

From the creators of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons comes A Way Out, an exclusively co-op adventure where you play the role of one of two prisoners making their daring escape from prison.

What begins as a thrilling breakout quickly turns into an unpredictable, emotional adventure unlike anything seen or played before.

A Way Out is an experience that must be played with two players. Each player controls one of the main characters, Leo and Vincent, in a reluctant alliance to break out of prison and gain their freedom.

Together, you’ll explore notions of trust and consequence as your choices begin to catch up with you.

Fresh presentation and admirable dedication to its big idea can't save this two-player adventure from mediocrity.

Messy, varied and inadvertently hilarious: A Way Out is an unusual but uneven tandem ride.

If you go into A Way Out thinking its mandatory two-player co-op is a gimmick, you'll likely come out of it realizing that it couldn't have been done any other way. Vincent and Leo's journey will have you and a friend performing tasks together both mundane and dramatic, and the result is a memorable, variety-packed cinematic adventure that feels like what Telltale's games might've evolved into if they'd leaned into game mechanics instead of phasing them out.

It's highly inconsistent, but this is still one of the most daring co-op games of recent years and shows how well playing together can work for story-based games.
