Subject matter fairly mature or appropriate for kids as well?Echoing the sentiment that this game is great. Playing with my wife, and we're in the 3rd area now, and it's been an absolute blast. I struggle to think of a more enjoyable co-op experience I've had.
Our 5 year old has been watching us play and there's not been anything that's concerned me, though obviously everyone is different. There is arguing between the parents and some stuff that a little kid may find scary. Framerate has seemed solid, playing on a Series X.Subject matter fairly mature or appropriate for kids as well?
Also how’s the split screen? Pretty smooth or are there some massive frame dips?
I was extremely interested in this game, but now that I've learned the 2 protagonist are a couple with marriage problems... i don't know.
That's kinda as unappealing as it gets, really.
All this time I've thought they were the child's imagination or "fairy friends" or whatever, but I really, really don't want to play as husband and wife fixing a marriage.
I'm actually saddened because I was planning on getting this, and I still believe it looks great. But yeah, I kind of can't stand the theme
This is my plan for the game, how old is your daughter and how hard is the game?
Yeah I saw that when I investigated more. Kind of sucks but the game still looks good on my CX.
Serious question: Do you think the game is appropriate for kids? Or are the themes a bit too mature? I know it tackles stuff like divorce, bad relationships, etc.
Thanks mate, sounds like exactly the kind of game we enjoy.The game can have times where it can _feel_ challenging, some bosses demands a certain amount of timing and precision to get by. HOWEVER, the thing is that as long as both of you don't die at the same time, the other one will always respawn and you will never have to even restart the checkpoint you're at.. So, as long as you do ok at picking up the slack the kid doesn't need to be awesome at videogaming to have a great time.
actually they don't because of it's heteronormative narrative and the fact that the game is about saving the parents marriage.
look at this piece of shit review lol. i guess someone's parents got divorced and they never moved on.
Gotta echo this too. Played this for hours with the wife yesterday and it's one of, if not the best co-op game I've ever played. Sackboy is still up there but I think this may beat it.Echoing the sentiment that this game is great. Playing with my wife, and we're in the 3rd area now, and it's been an absolute blast.

It’s absolutely brilliant! Where in the game are you right now?Sorry for the double post, but finally got to play it. Here are my first few hours impressions.
Top 5 Co-op experience ever? Maybe. Best game I've played in a while? Probably.
I KNEW it was going to be good. I loved Brothers, but never played A Way Out.
Presentation is impeccable. Graphics are gorgeous and colorful throughout. Voice acting is super entertaining.
The co op mechanics are great. Neither player feels like the sidekick. Every skill is equally important.
Difficulty level is perfect for my friend and me. We died quite a few times, but it was always our fault.
I have never been frustrated. I spent a ton of time with this game laughing with a huge smirk on my face.
I have a feeling it will be very short. I already feel like we're near the end.
That being said, at 40 dollars + the friends pass, if it ends soon, it will have been a great deal.
Can't wait to finish it.
EDIT: WHERE IS THE HYPE/OT????
No HDR bumped it down a point for me.
