Among Us review
Among Us is a multiplayer party game in which you join a spaceship crew trying to fix up their vehicle – but one of you is secretly the evil Impostor whose main goal is to kill everyone.
Graphics and Sound 5/10
The graphics in Among Us are not too much – the game looks like indie Flash arcades, so if you like advanced visuals, it’s probably not the right choice for you. Anyway, the game has its own visual style that’s quite cool and memorable, and the sound effects are alright. There are also some customization options: you can choose the color of your suit and the type of your hat.
The controls are very simple. Most of the time, you just run around the spaceship fixing things – or pretending to do so. All in all, almost everything you need to do can be achieved with just a couple of taps, and while the game requires quick reflexes sometimes, it’s still very comfortable to play it on mobile devices.
Among Us lets you join the Crew – a group of faceless creatures trying to fix their spaceship. However, some member of the Crew is the Impostor who kills crewmates and tries to sabotage the work. His main goal is to kill off everybody before the ship gets repaired. Since the Crew can vote to eject suspected saboteurs, it’s very important for the Impostor to frame other players and avoid getting caught red-handed. While the rules seem pretty simple, Among Us is extremely deep thanks to all the mind games and drama, especially when you play it with friends.
Lasting Appeal 8/10
The ship repairing aspect of the game may be a little bit too repetitive, but the social aspect is perfect anyway: the Impostor has to find new ways of hiding the evidence, and the Crew is always kept in suspense. And that is what makes Among Us so entertaining, making you play it again and again until all of your friends are tired from constant mind games and conspiracies.
