Jul 5, 2016A surprisingly detailed, enjoyable construction simulator with a staggering amount of depth.
Jun 28, 2016Prison Architect is a fantastic strategy sim which highlights both the difficulty of running a prison and keeping a lot of prisoners happy.
Jul 5, 2016Prison Architect is a full-on sim that will eat your time. If you fancy a dark look inside the running of a prison, look no further.
Jun 28, 2016Prison Warden is what will offer me some longevity in this game, since I can mess around with how the wardens affect the gameplay, and how each map runs differently. I get bored easily, and I will say that I found myself unchallenged after I got the hang of things. Prison Warden can help with that.
Jul 14, 2016The pick up and play nature of Prison Architect in tandem with its wealth of gameplay options make this title far outshine its few flaws with a charming and engaging overall package.
Playstation Official Magazine AustraliaAug 24, 2016Underneath the cute exterior lies a tough-as-nails sim exposing the realities of prison life. If you can see past a few offences, lock your door and lose the key. [September 2016, p72]
Jun 28, 2016Creating a candid simulation of a correctional facility is Prison Architect's purpose. Its power is allowing the player to decide if moral indifference—their own or Prison Architect's—is either a strength or weakness. Prison Architect's trip to the PlayStation 4 undermines its capability with an unnecessary layer of obstruction, but the interference it creates isn't impossible to overcome.

The mix of sandbox andI bought this game for PC months ago and logged solid amount of time toward it. It is fresh and full of challenges. The mix of sandbox and management aspects give it life beyond the initial building. As you manage you generate money and can continue to build. I absolutely love this game and if you look at the patch notes and even watch some of the developers streams on YouTube, all the updates and patches they apply to this game are entirely beneficial. I haven't seen them waste their time yet. A lot of effort clearly went into the eas of managing the controls for the ps4 version which is awesome. You can make it easy by giving yourself a lot of money and only taking in minimum security prisoners and work your way up to max security and low starting money, as well as always taking on new grants throughout a single play through. This game is honestly a must buy. It's one you can keep on your ps4 and always come back and play because it's not like any other game. And it's half the price of a normal game. 9.0 easy. They devs will constantly be making additions to this game and at least fixing anything need be quickly.
Variety of prisoners and management
Grants to keep the management aspect alive for much longer
Cons / what could be added:
I think they can't go wrong with adding additional flooring types, there's definitely enough, but over time maybe a flooring pack for 2 or 5$.
As well as other cosmetic packs for various structures.
9 / 10. Easy.
Great job devs, it's nice to see developers who put so much fine care into their game. I'm so glad to see this game has made it onto the ps4 and the effort you guys put into the interface is beyond words. There's a lot going on at first, but they did it right.
1 caveat I would add, is if the devs could add a option for switching which analog moves the cursor and which moves the screen. Right now it's default at left analog is the cursor and right is the screen but I think most of us are used to the right analog moving a mouse as in 'looking' and left analog being 'moving'.
Great job.… Expand
Nov 12, 2021Me fascinó el concepto, siempre tengo ganas de retomarlo, está muy chulo y disfrutón.
Nov 30, 2022Oyunda bir yerden sonra, neredeyse sadece bekleyerek para kazanıyorsun. Bu da çok sıkıcı yapıyor işi.

The game plays well enough, butPrison Architect is, definitely, an interesting game - but it doesn't port, particularly, well to the PS4.
The game plays well enough, but it misses a huge amount of things from the PC version and can, really, struggle for performance when you try to build larger prisons with higher amounts of inmates. It also (as of August 2021) suffers from a number of bugs, that stop you from being able to complete some of the trophy achievements.
I did enjoy the game, but too many little niggles for me to consider the PS version to be worth it over PC.… Expand

but now its 2020 and 3 dlcs later
the game at one point was near flawless and fun
in 2020 the game is broken. unplayable. you cant build a prison that secure. all your guards will one by one just start standing there swinging their keys endlessly allowing prisoners to kill each other and even just walk out the front door that the key swinging guard is holding open for all the prisoners
i tried to make a thread on their reddit with a clip and they removed the thread instead of addressing the issue
i reposted and got banned

they arent trying to fix the game.
i paid over $60 for the game and all the dlcs and it is broken and unplayable
whats the point of a prison builder game if all your guards just glitch out and let the inmates walk out the front door
trust me you will regret buying this game in 2020… Expand
