Among Us review

The multiplayer phenomenon that is Among Us has taken the gaming world by storm, boldly propelling players into the star-studded depths of treachery and deception. Developed by Innersloth, the game has become a shining beacon in the name of social deduction games, where your skill at being a deceptive Impostor is just as important as your ability to complete tasks as a Crewmate, canceling out the existential dread of being marooned on a futuristic spaceship.

Traversing the Milky Way with Impostors and Crewmates

Among Us provides a simple yet immensely engaging premise. You are part of a crew on a space mission but lurking among you are impostors out to sabotage the journey, thus leading to a thrilling game of detective and subterfuge. The game hinges upon communication between players, priming it as a fantastic social game.

However, as an app, Among Us does have weak points. To start, there's no tutorial, which means new players might need to spend some games figuring out the mechanics. Additionally, the experience heavily relies on the players themselves. If you're playing with strangers who take their roles less seriously, it's easy for the round to quickly devolve. In-app purchases for cosmetic items also exist, but these do not impact the gameplay in a significant way.

A Stellar Experience or Space Waste?

Player impressions of Among Us vary greatly. Some laud it for the paranoia-induced adrenaline rushes and the intense player interaction, while others cite repetitive gameplay and the dependence on having a good group as potential drawbacks. The overall verdict though, is that Among Us provides an immersive and exciting gaming experience which keeps you on your toes.
