  1. The mediocrity of the game play wont make this title a game to remember.
  2. Entertaining, but somewhat difficult in design, and occasionally unforgiving in control.
  3. 60
    Rebels is just competent enough to be a satisfactory exercise for fans of the Commandos-style puzzle play, but its technical advances fail to distinguish it, and its performance and some questionable design issues knock it down to mediocre at best.
  4. 55
    In the long run, Rebels can't seem to decide whether it wants to be an adventure game or a stealth sim of some kind, and this ambiguity prevents it from melding the two ideas together.
  5. Sometimes the game can lock your system up entirely. It's really a shame that Rebels: Prison Escape is so buggy. When it's working, it isn't half bad, but you should never have to say "when it's working" about a game you've paid good money for.
  6. The problem with Prison Escape is that it's just a buggy little piece of crap. If I were playing this game for my own enjoyment instead of reviewing it I would take this back to the store so fast I would be able catch myself coming out of the door withit.
  7. After the novelty wears off, it becomes an exercise in tedium broken only by crashes to the desktop. [Jan 2004, p.122]
