        The Escapists 2 reviews and comments

        Translated by
        Microsoft from Deutsch
        The Escapists 2 is absolutely recommended for all People looking for a fun Co-op puzzle game. The Goal is identical in every Scenario of this Game: Get out Of Jail as quickly as possible! Important in advance: In each of the Prisons on offer, there are at least 3 different Outburst routes. There are Outbreaks that can only be carried out in Single Player, but also exclusively for the Multiplayer! For this Reason, someone who wants to do without playing Online will never be able to reach 100% and will never get to know the full Range of Games. You get explained the most important Functions in a short tutorial prison. This helps to Start well. The Control is quite simple, but depends on one place or another (especially at Counters), which has already given us Solitary Confinement and a longer Stay in prison on several occasions. This is annoying, but overall it is negligible. Once you understand the Controls, it's about finding a Way out. Either you recognize an Outbreak ability on your own (E.g. based on conspicuous And unique spaces) or you look for clues that give clear tips for all slower Thinkers, clear Tips (not to say a Step-by-step guide). Most Routes are not difficult, but can still be expensive. However, Care is important: If you do not abide By the prison Rules, you will Acquaintance with the Nice Colleagues with the Batons, who can quickly ensure their own Stay in the Hospital Room. And at the latest, when the sweet Dogs were let out of their Cages after several missed Routines, the last rebel-held Occupant is also on the Ground. The Problem here: When transported to the medical Department, all prohibited Items are taken from you. So If you don't pay attention and drag all stuff around with you, you can quickly start from scratch. Especially since the Policemen Memorize their Cardboard Heirs, from which they were last beaten up. You are sometimes observed for no reason (even if you didn't actually do anything at all). The Same applies to the Mit-Knackis, of whom one is beaten up when you have done evil to them too often. Luckily, they're corruptible ...;) After holding For two Ages in the first Prison (but mainly out of sheer Stupidity ...), it took us a maximum of 4 Days in the following four Prisons to have at least a clear Plan, some of which was delayed only by Chance. This means the often very random Appearance of Objects in the Desks and on the Body of the other Occupants. You might think the Game will notice which Object you need and delay the Occurrence until after two Days you find it first and then constantly (if, of course, you don't need it anymore). But even that, for me, is no Reason not to recommend the Game. I particularly like the cheerful comichafte Portrayal of the Characters, as well as the animated Films with which you are rewarded in the event of an Outburst. The texts, which are comprehensible throughout, underline this Atmosphere. Finally, I think that 15 Euros is totally worthwhile for this Game, provided that you want to play in both singles and Multiplayer and have a little Work for your own Brain Cells.
        This game is half-finished. It was promoted like an excellent multiplayer title, and exactly this option is broken here. When we started playing, I wasn’t the host. After the reloading the stats were reset. Well, for such over-hyped game this problem is unforgivable. 
        Highly recommended title! It’s easy, fun and enjoyable. Great to play on your own or share with a friend. It looks awesome, and the level design is excellent. The game forces you to create original ways to escape from each prison, and the replayability is high. Totally satisfied with The Escapists 2, it’s as good as the original game.
