    Escape Plan absolutely reeks of nonsense and humor, which is exactly what you'd expect from a team partially comprised of the squad that brought PlayStation Network gamers Fat Princess.

    Escape Plan for PlayStation 4 is a surprisingly good porting of its handheld counterpart with a new control system which is probably not very pristine but also more responsive and sometimes less infuriating.

    With its improved controls, Escape Plan is now criminally good value for money. [February 2014, p81]

    Escape Plan’s memorable puzzles are wrapped up in a unique presentation, but once you finish the 3 hour campaign there's not much of a reason to comeback.

    The charming puzzle concept still is there, but without the touch surfaces of the Vita it loses some of its appeal.

    Since it's a direct conversion of the Playstation Vita game, the only thing that's really different or new it's the way you play. And still, it's not comfortable. If you put your hands on the game with your PS Vita, you probably won't be eager to play it again on PS4.

    Escape Plan has come to the PlayStation 4, but it fails to make the transition cleanly. The puzzles are dull and the controls are ill fitted to the new system. I wouldn't recommend playing Escape Plan, but if you absolutely must make sure it's the Vita version.

    The game is just lovely, artistic and fun at the same time. Gameplay it's not very hard, but even if you a hardcore gamer you will be hooked up for sure.

    The whole design it's a tribute to cinéma so film lovers will be delighted when discovering that you can dress up Lil just like Death at Ingmar Bergman's 'The Seventh Seal', for instance.

    Music in the game it's just beautiful and puts you in a very special mood when playing Escape Plan.

    I don't know how come this game gets 7.2 when other **** just-plain-shooting-things games are getting over 90. I want more games like Escape Plan, that is, more ART and less Bang Bang.

    These 2d puzzle-platformers are pretty common nowadays but Escape Plan is one of the best examples I've played in a while. The 1950’s cartoonThese 2d puzzle-platformers are pretty common nowadays but Escape Plan is one of the best examples I've played in a while. The 1950’s cartoon aesthetic gives it a unique feel and, possibly as a result of being designed originally for the Vita, it avoids the mistake that many similar titles make and keeps each of the puzzles short and logical from start to finish.

    It’s not an overly long game, I’d guess it took me about 4 hours to complete, but to be honest I’d rather play a shorter game than one that stretches out its ideas for too long. Whether on PS Vita or PS4 Escape Plan is worth playing.

The PS4Having owned Escape Plan on the Vita, I was allowed to download a free copy of Escape Plan on my PS4. The Game is pretty fun. The PS4 controller does an excellent job in addressing the touchscreen heavy gameplay of Escape Plan. Not worth the full $15 but pick it up if it falls down to $10. Expand

    I played this game thanks to the PS+ subscription but I'll review it like if i bought it as is no longer available for free.
    The game has great artistic direction :nice black and white graphics, design that made me think to Spirited Away (from Miyazaki) and awesome music that puts you in the mood. Great achievement on that point, but concerning the game itself it's really short (3 hours) and easy and I think that having puzzles to the right difficulty is the most important thing in puzzle games, but at least we've got a good use of the Dualshock 4 capacities. Concerning the story, it's very basic and will not create any passion.
    In a nut shell my eyes and ears were pleased playing Escape Plan but not my brain, also too expensive for the length.

It's not necessarily bad to have wood as your characters in your game as soon as you make the game itself interesting, and that really is up to the user.

    I, myself, didn't enjoy the game for too long as it simply got boring after a while. I can still, however, acknowledge that it's definitely not a bad game at all. it's good to pick up randomly sometimes and play through minute-long puzzle levels whenever you feel like it, and the game gives you that as an option as it knows it's made for short-term entertainment.

    Escape Plan on the ps4 was part of the November free games for Playstation plus members. I it picked up very much like my Binding of IsaacEscape Plan on the ps4 was part of the November free games for Playstation plus members. I it picked up very much like my Binding of Isaac review not really knowing what to expect from the game as I haven't previously heard of this indie game before.

    I was automatically drawn to the screenshots as the art style looked so beautiful as not many games adopt the black and white theme anymore, it looked a lot like Spy vs Spy at first glance but the gameplay is nothing of the sort.

    You may be thinking why have I given the game such a low rating when its been relatively good so far? The reason is the game itself is boring... Maybe harsh but this is why; it did not intrigue me in the slightest in didn't make me inclined to play on, unlike most other games it had no sense of achievement apart from walking, and solving relatively easy puzzles that you could solve with a Rubix's cube in one hand and play a game of "Guess Who" with an elderly family member with the right hahaha; They made it so obvious of what you to lift up and turn off etc etc.

    My final review is I'm glad I got it for free because I would be irate if I payed the £11.99 it may possibly go up too after the deal is done for the month, that's why I rated so low because that's what I would rate if I payed for the game. This game may possibly be more fun on the Vita but not on this console. Final words "Loved the art style, Hated the game"

    Thanks for reading my review on Escape Plan Ps4
