The game centers around a Company agent that is in Fox River to scope out the brothers and see what they are up to. You play alongside the first season of the show, so as you go along important events in the show occur and you are inserted into them. The game is very well written and most of the events made sense and you could actually watch the show after playing the game and see where the main character would be fitting in. It's done that well. There was a ton of gameplay elements that really played into the ways Michael and Lincoln would get out of sticky situations in the show. Like turning off a radio to distract a guard when he goes to turn it back off. The gameplay mostly consists of climbing, sneaking and doing missions for people in order to get info about the brothers. Toward the end there are some big twists and they worked well. A bit predictable but still good. The final boss battle was great too. Overall it's a fun game, it kept me interested for the 6 hours it took me to beat it. I earned 32 trophies as well without even trying so that's a plus for you trophy lovers and the rest don't seem too hard. The reviews that bashed this game are insane. If you are a fan of the show it's great. If you aren't then it probably would be mediocre at best but all the people saying the controls don't work, the guards catch you too much, etc. are just horrible at the game because while I got caught quite a few times if you know anything about stealth games, it's easy to watch the guards patterns and get past the levels. I beat it easily and didn't have trouble with anything really. Overall if you loved the show (or even just the first season) then you owe it to yourself to play this game. Just don't go in expecting a super diverse and amazing gameplay experience because it does get repetitive but IMO it was fun all the way through. Basically if you are a fan of the show and don't expect a AAA experience, it's an enjoyable experience.

I am a huge fan of the t.v series i was looking forward to this game but this game is NOT fun. You can never take out guards on stealth missions you can only sneak past them and their is hardly any action just sneaking.You don't even get to play as Michael you have to play as the part of the company.Just trust me I wasted so much of my time renting this game.DON'T rent this game unless you think living in jail would be fun!
