Among Us is a game where you have to become a detective and find out which one of your space crewmates is actually an impostor. And in order to do that, you have to observe them carefully, ask questions in order to find out more about them. But in order to make it harder for you, the impostor will try to make you believe that he or she is a regular crewmate. You will try to find out whether the person you are talking to is the real deal or an impostor.

Gameplay

Among Us is a live-action party game. Players are assigned the role of either the crewmates or the imposters. The crewmates’ goal is to complete tasks together. There are various missions that require the crewmates to complete. The Imposters’ goal is to sabotage the crewmates. The imposters are trying to make the crewmates fail their missions. Also, they are trying to eliminate all crewmates as soon as possible. The crewmates are trying to identify the imposters and throw them into outer space. Whoever accomplishes their goal first, wins.

Graphics

Among Us graphics are quite simple and basic. Graphics are 2D, but that's not the case. This game is more focused on gameplay and social interactions than on graphics. And the graphics it has are completely enough and fit the game very well. Thus, I can say that Among Us has good graphics.

Replayability

Among Us has quite good replayability, because in each game, players can come up with new ideas how to disguise yourself as a crewmate or how to debunk impostors. Each game is not like the others and that's what makes Among Us a highly replayable game.

Controls

Among Us controls are very easy. Basically, it's only movement controls and an action button. You use WASD or touchscreen controller to move your character and you use action button to interact with objects.

Conclusion

Among Us is a good social deduction game. Although it was released in 2018, it gained popularity in 2020. This is because of many streamers and YouTubers started playing it. Moreover, it gained big popularity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it still has some technical issues. As for now, Among Us doesn't have a story mode, but the developers are working on it. Nevertheless, I can recommend it to anyone, who likes games like Mafia or Werewolf, or likes the genre of social deduction games.

  • Easy to play
  • Works with all devices
  • Simple but nice graphics
  • Good sound quality.
