Available pretty much right across the spectrum of consoles and devices, this title was guaranteed a big audience and so perhaps didn’t have to try that hard. The developer thankfully avoided this easy route and delivered an insanely-inventive action/adventure that lost none of its adult appeal by being all about toys-come-to-life.
Lara’s back! Wait, did she ever go away? Everything is better again, especially the puzzle/combat balance that was more than a bit askew in the last revamp. A title that showed up Assassin’s Creed and its contemporaries as mere playground bullies in the presence of a strict, unbending headmistress.
Just beautiful. Two dimensions of sheer visual delight is all you need in this platformer - the emotional involvement experienced by players of this exciting and innovative game is matched only by the size and variety of the challenges presented.
Not the game of the year!? Sadly, no, even though great things were predicted prior to its release. Somewhat unambitious for a sequel, with gameplay and graphics not really adding much to the previous incarnations. Add to this some clumsy and unfocused storytelling and you might be wondering why this game made it to our list at all! It’s because Fallout 3 was pretty damn good - and this title, though not better, is definitely as good.
If you’re old enough (or cool and retro enough) to remember The Great Escape and Skool Daze, then The Escapists will be a pleasant nostalgic experience shot through with pure contemporary thrill. A prison escape drama of epic proportions (tie-ins with The Walking Dead, maps of real-life Alcatraz), this title took improvisation to a different, unchartered level.
