Among Us PC Review - The Final Verdict || Error69Pro

Hello everyone time to grind here and today I wanted to talk about among us and among us is a game that has been out for about two years already and it seems to have recently blown up in popularity and I finally had a chance to try it out with some friends and I wanted to make a 2020 review for it as I know a ton of things have been added and changed and I also just wanted to tell.


How to play & What to Do?

Among us is a social deception game really similar to trouble in terrace town or some of the physical games like werewolf or Avalon so you start out in a spaceship with a group of four to ten players and normally every single person except maybe one or two are crewmates and they'll have several tasks that they have to complete throughout the spaceship and the rest are imposters and the impostor's goal is to kill the entire crew without getting caught so they can just kill any player but normally you would want to kill players that are isolated so you won't get caught obviously and this is because whenever someone discovers a dead body they can report it and the game immediately goes to a voting phase and I should mention here that when playing this game you are not allowed to communicate with the other players.

If you're playing on discord with some friends like I was we all have to mute ourselves in discord but whenever the voting phase starts we're all allowed to unmute ourselves for the duration of the vote and kind of have conversations about who we want to vote on and obviously, if you're dead you're not allowed to say anything for the rest of the game and the game even tells you explicitly that you aren't allowed to communicate during the normal game so you technically could cheat if you wanted to with your friends but you know that would kind of ruin a huge part of the game so whenever you get to the voting phase everyone is allowed to talk for a little bit about who they think the imposter is.

Everybody then votes and whoever gets the majority of the votes gets ejected from the spaceship and killed so if it's the impostor then the crewmates win but if the impostor is still alive then you all go back to the ship and continue the game and you can also vote to skip if you don't really have enough info on who you think the imposter is and so if you're the imposter you're really trying to kill people in isolated areas like I said and kind of just blend in with the crew you can also use a system of vents as the imposter but you have to make sure you don't get caught coming in or out of the event because you're the only ones that can go through them.

Now if someone sees you doing it they'll know that you are obviously the imposter you can also start sabotages like cutting out the lights and turning off the oxygen in certain areas to cause chaos and kind of force the crewmates to perform certain tasks and go to certain areas and kind of plan on that you know kill them when they're you know isolated and everything like that and as a crewmate like i said you have a bunch of tasks you need to do all over the ship but what's really cool about this is every little task is kind of like a little mini game so you may need to shoot 20 asteroids from in front of the ship or you could connect to broken wires in like an electricity box and once everyone in the crew does all their tasks you instantly win if the imposter obviously hasn't won already and so overall i think this is easily one of the best social deception games i have ever played for a multitude of reasons firstly i love that the crewmates actually have something to do and it's not just them waiting around in groups waiting for the you know attackers or imposters or traders or whatever they're called in the game to kind of strike.

Extra Activities Inside the Game:

You know the mini games add a lot to the game and it gives an excuse for the crewmates to all kind of separate from each other instead of grouping up in fear and also if you're a crewmate and you get killed you still kind of need to complete your tasks as a ghost in order for the you know the alive crewmates to win so you still have to actually do something to let the crewmates win the game which i really like it's not like you're just out of the game fully i also really love the voting system that happens every time someone tries to report a body as it helps the game's pacing and it kind of gives you ample time to discuss and try to trick people if you're the imposter also the game has three completely different maps so you have the spaceship map you also have kind of like a space station map and then you have like a planet based map and so every single map is different from each other because obviously the layouts of the map themselves are different but they also have different tasks to complete on all of them they have different vent systems from each other and they also just look decently different from each other as well and so they really help add a lot of variety into the game which is nice another huge draw to the game is that the host of each game can customize the rules of the game to a really impressive detail they can change things like the amount of imposters how long the meeting times is how fast the players run how much vision the crew and how much vision the imposter has the kill cooldown of the imposter.

How many tasks must be completed and much more so once you play this game for a while you'll start realizing what your group of friends like playing with and you know kind of what rule sets and so when I joined my friends that had already played for like 40 hours at this point each, uh they all had a super balanced and kind of fun rule set that they all agreed on uh that was really balanced for each amount of players and then obviously you know if it's super overwhelming which to me it was as well and I didn't have to worry about it, uh you know because someone else was hosting but if you're the one hosting and you're overwhelmed just stay on the default and you know maybe you might eventually start experimenting with things like okay.

Well you know the trader never wins well maybe we'll make it where there are more tasks that you know crewmates have to complete and you can kind of like experiment with what works with your group of friends and I really really like that the art style is also really cute and kind of like cartoonified and you know it's nothing like groundbreaking or anything like that but it has a certain charm to it and I really appreciate it and also something really awesome about this game is that it's on mobile and it has cross-play so if you and your friends love this game a ton and can't stop playing it and you all hang out in person you can all download it on your phones and play in person which I think is really really awesome and so overall I am really happy that I discovered among us even if it was like two years late uh you know it's better late than never you know.

My Final Verdict :

If you're a fan of social deception games you definitely should check out among us because i think it is you know one of the best though i will say a lot of you guys probably have already you know played this game or heard of it i'm just kind of late to the party but if you guys have played among us which most of you guys probably have or just from watching gameplay i would love to know your guys's thoughts and the comments down below and if you enjoyed this video then consider leaving a like down below and subscribing to see more game reviews i review about two to three games a week just on a wide variety of games so subscribe and ring that bell like all the big boy youtubers say it really helps out a lot also if you can't get enough of me you can check out my podcast media crash where each episode we talk about a different game or movie genre or what you know you name it and if you guys are grinding on some games of among us in the future i wish you all the best and see you guys next time.
