Games of the Generation | 38: A Way Out

A game that can only be played in split-screen co-op (either locally or online), telling a story of two prisoners trying to escape and get revenge on those who had them end up in there. The game is a 3rd person action game, focusing more on stealth and puzzles early on and shooting towards the end.

Surprisingly, it’s not as confusing as I initially feared to both have different conversations on the same screen. Most of the game has you working together but the true delight is when you get separated and have your own unique sections.

Some highlights of the game are early on in the prison, where you have to set up your plan for escaping and have to work out how to get items past guards. These sections seem a bit more open and flexible to your approach.
