Joe was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment for armed robbery, and he is eager to break out of “The Rock”. But he needs help from his wife Christine, who is being threatened by fellow gangster Mickey to hand over the swag.

Will our hero be successful in the race for the loot?


1954: Alcatraz review

2.5 stars: "A near-equal balance of good and bad that can make a game either fall disappointingly short of its evident potential or be mildly entertaining despite its many failings. "

Its compelling period setting is rock solid, but too many problems prevent this dual-character adventure from taking off.
