First review I have ever done on Steam. And to sum up my review at the start - fantastic game.
I only got Prison Architect because it seemed like an interesting idea and my girlfriend wanted to see what it was like. As soon as I started playing I saw that this is something special. The developers do a fantastic job of balancing free-form gameplay with intuitive design. You are allowed to experiment without fear of a harsh and instant punishment as many simulation games tend to do. Yet, the (mostly) easy to read statistics and management windows allow you to understand the happenings of your prison so you know how well your strategy works.
The only issues I find with the game are its lack of in depth tutorial. So far there only exists a short introduction but it only scratches the surface of the complexity and in-depth simulation that this game provides. Hopefully more tutorials will become available. Otherwise, through trial and error you can figure it all out yourself easily enough. Maybe even a campaign or scenario option would be nice.
Despite these few omissions this is a fantastic game to anyone who enjoys a creative simulation. Even though it still is only in the early stages Introversion Software has had a great start and I look forward to seeing what they will be doing in the future.
