Among Us review

Among Us is an online multiplayer social deduction game developed and published by American game studio Innersloth in 2018. The game takes place in a space-themed setting, where players each take on one of two roles, the most being Crewmates and a predetermined number being Impostors. 

Graphics

Among Us features simple, 2D graphics. The game's art style is heavily inspired by that the popular webcomic Homestuck. The bright colors and the characters are cute, but the overall look is not particularly impressive. However, the game's simple graphics are intentional, as they help to create an atmosphere of paranoia and distrust. The graphics are colorful and cute. The characters are easy to distinguish from one another. The environments are well designed. 

Gameplay

The gameplay is simple and easy to understand. Among Us is a social deduction game, which means that it is heavily reliant on communication and cooperation between players. The game can be played with 4-10 players, and each game lasts for about 15 minutes. 

The game is set in a space-themed backdrop, in which players each take on one of two roles, most of which are Crewmates, and attempt to complete tasks around a map to prepare their ship for takeoff while one or more impostors sabotage the ship to prevent the crew from winning. The job of the crewmates is to find and eject the impostors before they destroy the ship.

Impostors can sabotage the tasks and kill players. Players can report dead bodies to vote out impostors. Players can use the in-game chat to discuss their suspicions, strategize, and vote to eject players they suspect are impostors.

Pros:

  • Among Us is a free online multiplayer game;
  • Among Us is easy to learn and play;
  • Among Us is a great game for socializing and making new friends;
  • Among Us can be played on any device with an internet connection;
  • Among Us are fun and addicting game.

Cons:

  • Among Us can be frustrating when trying to communicate with other players;
  • Among Us can be repetitive and boring after a while;
  • Among Us requires an internet connection, which may not be available in all areas;
  • Among Us may cause arguments and fights among friends;
  • Among Us can be addictive and lead to wasted time.

Replay Value

Among Us is a very replayable game. The short game length and the fact that each game is unique (due to the random distribution of impostors and tasks) means that players will want to keep returning for more. In addition, the social deduction element of the game means that players will want to experiment with different strategies and play with different groups of people to find the best way to win. The impostor role is also rotated, so everyone has a chance to be the bad guy. 

Conclusion

Among Us are fun and replayable social deduction game that is perfect for players who enjoy games like Mafia or Werewolf. The simple graphics and gameplay make learning easy, but the social deduction element adds a layer of depth that will keep players coming back for more. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun online multiplayer game to play with friends.
