    A Way Out is a true achievement in game design. Not only does it manage to take players on a true journey of emotion, it does so in a way that is only possible through the medium of video games. It manages to do something truly special by making two players to cooperate for an extended amount of time, and the discussions that happen on the couch or over voice chat can be just as revealing as the game itself. Josef Fares and Hazelight have undoubtedly raised the bar for co-op gaming.

    A Way Out is possibly the best cooperative video game ever created. Its movie-quality cinematography, intuitive and varied gameplay, and engaging story full of unique stand-out scenarios make it one incredibly memorable interactive experience.

    A Way Out is more than a prison escape adventure - it is an escape from individualism with a clear and honest proposal: to make you trust someone else again, however difficult that reality may be.

    A Way Out is an exceptionally unique game. It asks a lot out of its players and demands they work together and trust each other in order to progress. The story is somewhat inconsistent, but offers enough variety and surprises to keep things fresh and exciting. If you are even remotely interested in co-op, A Way Out shouldn’t be missed.

    The new adventure signed by Josef Fares is again a tale about two bound-together guys. Vincent and Leo will share the same adventure in a constant split screen in order to get their revenge, thanks to a common past. After a (very!) slow and boring start, the story gets better and better, in both plot and gameplay. Even new mechanics are introduced, scene after scene, changing the perspective every time. It’s more like an interactive experience than a real challenge, like Telltale’s.

    A Way Out is a fun ride that shows off a great cooperative experience, an interesting story, and some of the coolest camera work to ever grace a video game.It’s an extremely smooth experience with very few rough edges. That said, it lacks some of the content we’ve come to expect from interactive stories, which makes it a fun ride, but not something that you’ll likely return to again and again.

    While I enjoy the idea of dedicated co-op and I’m excited to see someone exploring the space, it doesn’t feel like A Way Out trusted itself or its players to do so – the gameplay is simple to the point of being bland, the script is too predictable, and its efforts to evoke emotion feel cheap. It might be fine to play with a friend over a weekend, but it will be forgotten soon after, and it’s a shame.

Infelizmente hoje em dia é raro ver um game tão eficaz como jogo cooperativo local de campanha, como víamos lá nos anos 90, 2000 como no super Nintendo e ainda alguns que sobrevivem no PS1 e ps2. E A WAY OUT trouxe isso de volta, com uma história envolvente, protagonistas carismáticos, e um final surpreendente e inesperadamente homenagememocionante.

Игра строго на двоих и можно пройти на одной приставке в режиме локального кооператива, не обязательно играть с кем-либо онлайн - в наше время это большая редкость!
    В этой игре вас ожидает выполнение разнообразных задач вдвоём с напарником, перестрелки, погони и мини-игры, в том числе настолки.
    Порой возникает ощущение, что запустил Uncharted на минималках, так как есть несколько уровней очень похожих на четвёртую часть, только исполненных не настолько эпично и красиво, но это нормально, так как игра стоит не 4к и к тому же на двоих - за такое можно многое простить!

    Всем рекомендую, 7-8 часов удовольствия вам с другом гарантировано… для игры по интернету не надо покупать вторую копию - достаточно выслать гостевое приглашение... и это хорошо:)
