I just have to say first of all: This game took me by complete surprise. Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect is a straightforward badass game, and the opening five minutes are fairly shocking. A walkthrough of the mobile version of the game has gone up and it’s well worth a watch… surprisingly.
Touch Gameplay has a thorough video walkthrough of the game, making various select choices in how the game progresses. For those of you who don’t know, Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect from Orpheus Interactive and Silverback Productions is designed to mimic the gameplay of Telltale’s popular Walking Dead series (amongst their other titles).
You can check out the full walkthrough for the game below. It’s only an hour and three minutes long and manages to wrap itself up nice and neat from start to finish without overstaying its welcome, and you can check it out below.
As you can see in the video above, the gameplay varies from standard look-and-move, touch-and-go gameplay to light puzzle solving, to riding the bike through the highways of the desert plains and forested backwoods. If I had one major aesthetic criticism it would be that the lip-synch is kind of shoddy and the animations could do with some upgrading.
Even still, the segment with the dog and the wrench would probably make some click-hate pushing, SocJus hipsters at PETA flip a nut and spill some tofu.
The controls, for quite a few core gamers, is likely the biggest turnoff with the game. Those bike segments — oh man were those brutal to watch because mobile phones straight-up suck for anything driving related. But the actual game structure and the story itself is what helps carry the experience.
As one YouTuber, Justin Blose, pointed out…
“Bad ass game but y does it gotta be a mobile game y not console .”
There’s some talk about a PC version and that could definitely work.
It’s a little slow starting but the story seems solid and the drama is gripping enough to maintain interest. It’s most certainly not in the category with Ride To Hell: Redemption, but it’s also not quite on par to The Lost & Damned. But it seems to fit in its own little niche quite nicely.
