  1. This stealth game takes all the fun out of life in prison.
  2. Despite the involvement of many of Prison Break stars, The Conspiracy is just a game developed to make money with the pretext of its popular IP.

    As the plodding narrative progresses, these repetitive fighting and stealth tasks grow quickly tedious.
  4. It’s only been out for a couple of weeks and it’s already getting heavily discounted by some retailers – and there’s a whole bunch of reasons for that. I don’t care if you’re a fan of the show, it’s just not worth it.
  5. Prison Break: The Conspiracy should never have been published. It fails to deliver as a stealth game, and the fighting system is riddled with shortcomings. It doesn't help that the story feels washed up and boring.

    Tedious missions. [June 2010, p.88]
  7. The “alternative look” at the familiar events is hardly a bait for Prison Break aficionados. Other players will be turned off by horrible stealth, incoherent storytelling and outdated visuals.

    I think most reviewers are just competing who will make more jokes on account of this game and unknown developer. Some of them are even openI think most reviewers are just competing who will make more jokes on account of this game and unknown developer. Some of them are even open enough to say they don't like Prison Break in the first place. How can one hope for a fair review from such writers? Very unprofessional, guys. It's true this game is not the best out there, but it's not so bad either. It's definitely much better then Lost and it's one of the best games that take place in a prison, where players can't use guns and cast spells. I don't know what some of the above mentioned reviewers expected from this game as they complain exactly about these things. I find PC Gamer's review the closest to what I think about the game. Maybe I'd give it another few 10 percent as the atmosphere is quite on spot with the feel of the series. It's a good game. Full Review »

Just plain stealth,The game is interesting at first, but after a while it gets boring because nothing new is introduced through the game. Just plain stealth, doing this and doing that. It gets really boring every chapter, it feels like a punishment trying to actually finish the game itself. While everything is fine; voice acting, graphics isn't too bad, good story, etc. - the gameplay is still so annoying. Full Review »
