Our PC videos of A Way Out

A Way Out got pretty good reviews overall, but the game has not been unanimously praised by journalists or players. The reasons why our coverage took so long to be put up is first that we had to buy our own PC copy of the game and secondly that we wanted to complete it first. It turns out that Josef Fares' new title is not as memorable as Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, but it's still a nice co-op experience to share with a friend, provided you neither expect deep gameplay mechanics nor a revolutionary plot. The situations are quite varied but the way split screen is used could have been a bit more audacious, not to mention that some of the story bits could be considered as a form of laziness of writing. That being said, the 2 main characters are endearing enough and the plot does not take more shortcuts than say Heavy Rain. In the end, A Way Out may not be indispensable, but it's not especially disappointing when you don't attribute imaginary intentions to the game.

    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (9 minutes ago)

    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @MrWhite: That's not what happened. He couldn't see the ball, so he first stepped a bit to the left to see where the ball was... (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite Croatia's keeper's a bit shite too. At least try to dive and not sit on your arse. (1 Hour ago)
