Prison Break Fan, Good Game
I loved the Prison Break show and figured that the game would be good since it follows what happened in Season one. Plus they included the characters real voices from the show. Nevertheless their are some pros and cons. Lets go over the negatives. One big disappointment of the game is that you can not play as Michael Scofield. The game has some action qualities to it like prison fights, finishing moves and stealth missions. The graphics and storyline are respectful and entertaining. If you like games like "Hitman" this will be fun. The controls are simple to learn and their are some sudden fight scenes that you dont see coming and an open world in prison "free to roam". This game is awesome I just would have liked to be Michael and the game would be more interesting if it had more complexity "Basically if one wants to relive the Prison Break experience one has to think like Scofield in the game and make it complex like Michael made the show."
Cool show...not so cool game
I took a shot in the dark with this game, and was pretty let down. I really wasn't expecting that much out of it, but come on?! The story line was fair at best, your character always sounded like Batman with that growly deepish voice and the look and feel of the game were about as cool changing a diaper. It's not bad if your hunting for easy trophies (or achievements, respectively), and if you are, I recommend renting it for a couple nights to get all of them. Bottom line, unless your new to video games, this is not a very good lasting appeal video game.
bad game from a bad tv show
5.0 Presentation Chapters are interspersed with blurry zooms through the prison walls to replicate the feel of the show, but not all the main characters reprise their roles for the voice acting. 6.0 Graphics Decent character likenesses in an expressionless mannequin kind of way. Okay-ish lighting and recreation of the prison interiors from the television series 4.0 Sound The main theme and incidental music from the series adds authenticity, but the voice acting is so bad that we were convinced that most of the voice actors were soundalikes – even when they weren't. 3.0 Gameplay Like putting a dry sponge on the scalp of an electric chair victim and then turning on the juice. In other words, very poorly executed. 3.0 Lasting Appeal The main game is about eight painful hours long, but there are no collectibles/unlockables to go back for and the two-player versus mode is god awful.
Hello i pre-ordered this game a couple weeks ago knowing that many people would think that it would be terrible luckily i got a copy at my local gamestop (which only had 4 copies total lol) so i was so excited to play when i got home. keep in mind i am a huge fan of the TV series. the games story captured the first season perfectly! it includes all the voice overs and the graphics in my opinion were dead on. the length depending on difficulty and the type of gamer you are may vary. i thought it was a good length and the action is evenly paced. i finished the game in about 8 hours total on the normal difficulty. it is broken up into nine chapters. i could not put the controller down for a moment it was so thrilling and full of potential therefore i hope they make another. you play as tom Paxton not the main characters of the TV show. he is sent there to find out Micheal's plans. the replay value is not very high unless you just want to play again because you liked it so much. it has a two player mode which is like fight club which is perfect for anyone who likes fighting games. i gave this a 10 out of 10 because many are to judgmental and don't give game developers a chance also its because i loved it!!! please get yourself a copy as soon as possible!!!!
never watched the show but gave it a try
i just bought this game at gamestop for $20 i figured if i dont like it i can take it back with there 7 day return policy for used games, i actually do like this game, its stealthy and fighting is pretty cool, i mean for $20 its actually pretty good, so if you want a quick fighting stealthy game pick this up
TV shows don't tend to make for the best video games. Lost was a storyline fluff, like Enter the Matrix, but it looks like this is a playable Season One. It reminds me more of the 24 video game, with its Playstation exclusive release (not a wise choice for a game that is relying more on marketing than solid gameplay). This over-excreted cash cow has gone from TV show to movie, so it's no surprise that they are trying to suck more money out of a Video Game release. By the way, I'm a huge fan of the outlandish TV show, I just wish companies knew when to draw the line and lay their products to rest, while concentrating on where to go next.
Umm well I has walking home from school and I just wanted a game to play so I was looking in gamestop and found prison break the conspiracy and fell in LOVE with it. The game is great overall. pick up a copy AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great game and goid graphics. Its like the show but it is an awesome game..very fun. I enjoy playing it over and over again. Its a must have!!
actually look good
from what i have seen this actually look pretty good. usually when a game gets cancled its over with but i see some promise when a game come back from the dead it has to have some value if a company is going to back it a year after it was supost to be released and then was cancled. when i buy it ill give a full review, not just some rant saying all tv games .
Just like the lost game.
