    The Escapists 2 is a worthy successor to the highly popular The Escapists. The improvements to the overall look, feel, and sounds of the original make this one very much worth picking up.

    I never sat down with The Escapists 2 without smiling. Even during its rough first hours, its personality and a keen sense of humor kept me going. And as you discover its layers of challenge, intrigue, and variety, you'll be hooked. By turning the routine into a steady and engaging flow of progress, and by spicing things up with historical and fantastical locations, The Escapists 2 gets tremendous mileage out of its premise. Then you have the online, which is mildly problematic yet brimming with life and new ways to experience the game. You may be serving time in jail, but The Escapists 2 will ensure that you won't feel guilty about it. Now excuse me, I think I've earned some kind of punishment for that awful wordplay.

    The Escapists 2 expands the idea of the original title and goes beyond; it packs a lot of prisons from which we can find some original and sometimes funny ways of escape. And this time, we can bring friends to the party, since it has cooperative and versus modes.

    A great step forward beyond its predecessor.

    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.

    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.

I was not interested in this game, but I still downloaded it and I really liked it. And I was even interested in games with a similar theme where you could escape from prison, but it's a pity that there are so few such games. If part 3 comes out, I will definitely play it. I think this game is one of the best games I have played. Expand

It's good if you played the first one, but probably better if you didn't. The only thing I would say is wait to pick it up in a Steam sale if you own Escapists, and buy it now if you don't own the first game. Expand

    → 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).
