There's a constant mood about A Way Out that makes it seem like it's more inventive than it really is. Disregard that and you're left with a decent-enough story with some genuinely enjoyable video game moments. It's campy fun and that's perfectly fine. Just don't expect too much more.
A Way Out takes some of the very best ideas from action adventure gaming and mixes them with the story telling of a great film. It’s near perfect in pace and progression, while offering the player plenty of variety across the course of this five hour experience.
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.
