A Way Out is largely a good looking game. I mean, it’s using the Unreal Engine 4 so it’s bound to look good but I did manage to come across some inconsistencies ranging from mediocre animations to clipping issues. The music isn’t as exciting as it could be with the best tunes emerging from the initial sequences. These are not game breaking issues and doesn’t make the game less fun, but it would have definitely lifted the overall experience to another level.

A Way Out has some ambitious, fantastic ideas at its core, but it’s unfortunately surrounded by tiresome gameplay mechanics and a story that is just a bit too straightforward. While I think that the co-op focused nature of A Way Out could have better been executed upon, I endlessly credit Hazelight for trying something that I’ve never really seen done in this manner. Despite my issues, I really love the experimentation seen in A Way Out and hope to see more unique ideas like it in the future.

A Way Out is at its best when it's conjuring up inventive things for you and your co-op buddy to do. Though elaborating any further would spoil it, there are a few action scenes where co-operation is much more than just pressing square at the right time, while a few mini-games dotted throughout its chapters also provide fun distractions. When A Way Out deviates from its quick-time events it's a great deal of fun, and even small activities such as cajoling fish towards your buddy's makeshift wooden spear can be hilarious.
