    The Escapists 2 will delight you with new graphics, a multiplayer game including a LAN option and plenty of new exotic dungeons. Unfortunately, due to its high difficulty, somewhat frustrating mechanics and repetitiveness (no change since part one here), only the most skilled players will probably enjoy the game.

    The Escapist 2 adds a multiplayer dimension to the previous game. If you have the opportunity to gather one or more friends around the same goal, you will be able to live very pleasant moments to cooperate.

    When you find the right offbeat item, or barely squeak by a guard in Escapists 2, it's incredibly refreshing. However, the monotony of gathering items and playing errand runner for other inmates sours the experience, and the awkward controls don't help. For those who crave unforgiving challenges, the Escapists 2 brings them in spades, but it often comes at the cost of your patience.

    That the most striking "innovation" in the second part of the indie game at the end is the multitude of bugs I've encountered is just annoying.

    WARNING: Do not buy this one if you plan on playing Solo.

    Honestly it feels like more of the same from the first one but this time they incorporated Co-Op. Problem is all the maps are designed for Co-OP and not well designed for single player. They're too large with too much stuff you have to do/get if you plan on escaping by yourself. Escaping co-op is way easier because the maps are designed for that. If you plan on playing solo just play the first one you won't be missing out by not playing this one.

    → Je suis Scofield !
    S'échapper de prison semble ici aussi peu fun que dans la réalité, j'imagine. En tout cas, ça s'avère mal exploité par les développeurs, avec un système de craft vraiment améliorable et compliqué en l'état… Le gameplay se montre très redondant, devoir chaque jours trouver des objets ou des composants, se rendre en un lieu précis de la prison à heure régulière, c'est réellement une expérience rebutante pour moi.

    Sortie en août 2017 / Développé par Team 17 (Worms).
