A Way Out Reviews
A Way Out is a true achievement in game design. Not only does it manage to take players on a true journey of emotion, it does so in a way that is only possible through the medium of video games. It manages to do something truly special by making two players to cooperate for an extended amount of time, and the discussions that happen on the couch or over voice chat can be just as revealing as the game itself. Josef Fares and Hazelight have undoubtedly raised the bar for co-op gaming.
A Way Out not only holds itself alongside the best coop titles out there – it surpasses them.

It is a truly welcome gem in the medium that takes risks and propels the experience with new energy nearly every step of the way.

A Way Out is pretty much the best interactive movie you'll ever play - just make sure you've got a friend to bring along for the ride.
A Way Out is nothing short of an awesome experience. The story is fantastic, the characters are very believable, and the game moves at a good pace. While it doesn't concentrate on a particular game style, it's easily accessible to all.

A Way Out is certainly a game that's worth playing as soon as possible.
A Way Out is possibly the best cooperative video game ever created.
