    leonayao's A Way Out (PS4)

    [September 1, 2018 02:01:05 AM]
    Picking up from I left, I and my friends finished the second part of the game. We had successfully broken out of the prison and escaped with a vehicle. One player drives, the other shoots the police. There are two types of games that I hated the most: shooting and racing game. I was worried I am not going to do well and wasted my friendís game. However, controls are easy, and the escaping scene is fairly short, that even player such as me can manage to do it before getting too anxious about failing too much.

    This game is a character-driven piece. Although in the beginning, it seemed like a story-driven piece, in the second half of the game really evokes players deepest emotions. Till this point, the player playing as the protagonist had bounded together after all these journeys, they reflected some of their feelings to the protagonist. Leo and Vincent both went to their family and witnessed each otherís private life, moreover, weakness. I was moved by their stories. It is weird but I do feel like me and my friend had bonded deeper throughout this game. A lot of times when we are making decisions whether following Leoís plan or Vincentís plan, we tend to vote for the same plan. This makes me know more about my friendís personal trait.

    Breaking into the house was intense. I and my friend were both pumped up in the end when we killed the final boss. We were satisfied with the ďendingĒ until we played until the very last scene. After all, I have been through with him, he betrayed me. The ending is shocking and gives me a deep impression.

    This game is enjoyable to play with friends. Normal cooperative games are most of the time are action games and are not supposed to be emotional, A Way Out offers me a new perspective of multiplayer games. Gameplay is short and I think this is perfect because me and my friends we donít always get to play together since we are both busy students. Gameplay is smooth, controls are easy to understand. This is one of my favorite game of the year.

    My friend bought A Way out on PlayStation 4 so we decided to play the game. The game starts with a scene somewhere in the future scene just to make a brief introduction of the two protagonists, just like what movies would like to do. In only one minute, we get to know Vincent and Leo has a different personality trait. Players most of the time favors the ones who have more similarities toward themselves because this is a quick way to attach with the protagonist, which created a sense of presence.

    The screen sometimes splits into half, in the beginning, I found that annoying because I am not used to a small screen. However, I discovered lately in the game it is necessary to do it this way because the players need to know what happened in both Vincent and Leoís perspective. Overall color in the game is less saturated, realistic textures create a serious and emotional flow in the game.

    The whole game not only contains a lot of cooperation between two players but also constant communication too. For example, when Vincent tried to make a whole behind the toilet, he needs Leo to distract the prison guards. Whenever the prison guards come near to me, the other player needs to quickly warn me because the two screen offers different angles and perspective of the guards. My favorite part of the games is minor stuff that you can interact with. For example, picking up the guitar from the old coupleís house, which makes you feel a bit more relaxing throughout this intense prison breaking experience.
