Some scenarios are far from everyday life – and that’s a good thing. Because many of them mean experiences that no one wants to have anything to do with unless they take place in a video game.
A Way Out is a fast-paced two-player co-op game where you will play as one of the men escaping prison. Sounds stressful? It is! Especially since, along the way, you’ll learn the backstories of both heroes in detail to get attached to them… and say goodbye after about six hours.
Unfortunately, this title is short but provides an intense and memorable experience. So it’s no surprise that you might want to play a similar game as fast as possible. Don’t worry – if you’re looking for something alike.
