  1. Looks great, Plays great, Music sounds great.
  2. The best puzzler on Xbox Live Arcade. [Jan 2008, p.98]
  3. Taito has meticulously crafted each progressive level in Exit to be a mindbender, thus ruling out all possibilities of this title being a pushover. Throw in the fact that there are a staggering 220 levels in Exit, and you can easily see why puzzle freaks like us are clamoring over Mr. ESC and his hip antics.

    Though it's not perfect, Exit is worth picking up for any fan of Lemmings or Lode Runner.
  5. Between the blipping electro soundtrack and dated, incessant "Help me!" whining voices, Exit serves as a great reminder as to why it is so cool that you can stream music through your 360.
  6. We wish it spent a little more time on puzzles, and little less on weak platforming - but we can't help but love it when a plan comes together.
  7. Annoying, frustrating; even Mr ESC couldn't rescue this game from complete disaster. [Jan 2008, p.94]

    A wonderful little gem of a game. Didn't like it much at first but if you stick with it and become used to the mechanics and such, it becomes so addictive it's frickin' insane. Over 200 stages and the chance to improve your times give it great value. Exit could very well become a classic. Just try it and stick with it for a little bit - I bet you'll end up loving it. Makes you feel smart too! Expand
