Filled with humor, cuddly visuals and some surprising depth, The Escapists: Complete Edition is a big game in a tiny little package. You might feel like a real prisoner at times trying to survive its grueling difficulty, but its charm and reasonable price help to make this stint in the big-house a surprisingly fun experience.

The Escapists: Complete Edition is an action game that can boast about its lifespan and very challenging difficulty level. It does less well on other factors and it can feel very frustrating at times, aggravated by the lack of some assistance guides and overall repetition of contents. This Complete Edition ends up feeling below the level demonstrated by other games in The Escapist series already available for the Nintendo Switch.

The breakout indie hit The Escapists finds it way onto the Nintendo Switch. Is it a runaway success or is it locked away in a maximum security prison.

Undoubtedly, there has been enjoyment had by enough people to warrant a Switch release, but the time and patience to do the simplest things without external help was just not for me. The few humorous lines of dialogue spouted by the guards and fellow inmates did little to put a shine over my miserable time with The Escapists.
