Reborngamers Review :

This game is a Co-op game. You can find an online pal to play with you. But we strongly recommend to get your gaming friend or your siblings to have great fun. The game’s primary storyline is to get out of prison and try to hunt the villain who framed both the playable characters.The players have to choose their characters to play and the game begins. Two characters Leo Caruso and Vincent Moretti are the convicts the players can play. Loe Caruso in already in the prison as Vincent is new to the prison. Leo Caruso has some issues with the other inmates which triggers both players into co-op mode. Both the characters hatch a plan to escape the prison.

Co-op is the key formula in this game. We were amazed the hard work the developers have put into this game. The Dynamic split screen is amazing. The screen can split vertically, Horizontally and evenly, this experience is really unique and interesting. The duo has to figure out a way to the prison, whether it's distracting a guard while the other player is removing a bolt to escape his cell or obtaining tools to the breakout.

This game’s gameplay is thrilling, engaging and there will be a lot of communication between the players.It's a Unique concept which the developers have created and the game does give them credit. This game has some amazing actions sequence as the camera flips from one player to another, Creating thrilling experiences throughout the game is wonderful. The storyline is acceptable considering the fact that the developers have tried to give the players a unique and thrilling experience. The sound of the game adds an extra layer in the thrilling experience.

Once out of the prison the players can explore a varied and more interesting environment. It’s small but dense and it's colorful. As the players can travel to a farm, a trailer park or a cinema.these locations and really fun. Other action sequences such as car chases and shootouts are not new, but very much acceptable. The cop chase sequences have some amazing choreography.

All good things up to this point right? Let's get into the bad ones. There are issues when a player is in a deep and emotional cutscene the other player can just relax and run around. After nearly 7-8 hrs of gaming with the characters, You will never find any emotions between the characters. The cutscenes seem to overlap as one player finds it hard to hear what has been said on his screen. The game doesn’t have effective facial or body animations. The storyline is not unique or refreshing.  You can easily find animation flaws in this game. Apart from the two main characters, you cannot find any interesting characters in the game. Constantly tapping buttons to reach a vent might feel to be overdone. We sometimes felt that all the action happening on both screens seems to be overdone and we lost concentration at multiple times. The endgame is not powerful to the amazing and unique experience we had. The game lacks heavily on narrative and voice acting.

Verdict:

A Unique and daring experiment. The co-op is the real winner here. The thrills are really there when trying to escape the prison.Apart from that, the game will feel mediocre.
