    A Way Out is something new and fresh that ironically brings nostalgic feelings. It's unique and original, and if you miss coop adventures, you can't miss it.

    I implore you to find a friend who owns it or to buy it yourself and share the experience with someone else. Honestly, don’t miss A Way Out, for it’s the purest form of co-op out there and a truly innovative game.

    Makes co-op gameplay more worthwhile than anything else before it. [May 2018, p.84]

    Above all else, and despite its similarities and homages to several films and other properties A Way Out surprises with little touches and moments of joy. Stopping to play Connect Four in a hospital waiting room or picking up a banjo for a strum in a farmer’s house after washing his dishes and stealing his clothes. A Way Out understands that co-op can be fun and spontaneous in addition to providing another tense moment requiring coordination.

    A Way Out intended to renew the forgotten split screen cooperative experience, but fell short in its execution. The result is not as overwhelming as you think; A Way Out is fun and it's better to play with a partner on the couch. However, if you wanted to find the holy grail of cooperative gaming, maybe you should look elsewhere.

    A game that never quite finds a level of consistency to fully engage you. [June 2018, p.114]
