  1. Prison Break - The Conspiracy is an okay stealth-action-mix but only for the fans of the TV-series.
  2. Despite the stiff stealth/fighting mechanics, the mission’s linearity and the trial/error experience, Prison Break: The Conspiracy somehow ended up being enjoyable. I’m sure Zootfly could have done something much better, but in the end, the final product was purposely done with the intention of giving the fans something incredibly easy to play.
  3. Flawed in so many ways, this feels like a rushed product, and even though the voice acting is by most of the actors from the show, it feels as uninspired as the rest of the game.
  4. Prison Break is a disappointment on all fronts. The fighting system has been badly implanted and the presentation is lacklustre. The only redeeming features are the sneaking around and the development of the plot, but it’s not enough to keep this game from falling flat on it’s face. Someone throw the keys away.
  5. Not even the most dedicated fan of the TV show could find this piece of garbage entertaining. Lock this let-down up and throw away the key.
  6. 32
    When the only reason you're compelled to continue playing a game is to point and laugh at how badly the entire thing has been thrown together, you know that it has major problems.
  7. 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.

    First off this game is a lot more enjoyable if you have watched the series (or at least season 1)
    You take control of an undercover agent in fox river penitentiary, sent to investigate Michael Scholfield.
    The story of the game revolves around the events that unfold in season 1, it is put together well and the outcome is an amazing story that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
    Gameplay is somewhat average, involving a basic cover to cover stealth system, and very simplistic fighting mechanics. It was nice to hear the dubbing done by most of the original actors, but characters seemed too lifeless. You will often see scenes from the series play out in-game and realise that you are sometime a cause of those events or deal with the aftermath. Overall a solid story with good twists but gameplay seems last gen.
    9/10 for story, 6/10 for graphics, 5/10 for gameplay.

    Mediocre is the best way to describe this game. It's very average across the board and would really only appeal to hardcore fans. The stealthMediocre is the best way to describe this game. It's very average across the board and would really only appeal to hardcore fans. The stealth system works well enough but lacks any imagination. Getting spotted is instant game over. Theres also a simplistic boxing mechanic for the few action oriented portions. I'd suggest giving this game a rent if your a big fan of prison break and feel like sneaking around some of Michael Scofields old haunts. Expand
