Prison Break: The Conspiracy I never saw Prison Break the TV series so I didn't have much background knowledge when I started playing this game but still managed to enjoy myself. You play Agent Tom Paxton who is sent undercover into Fox River Penitentiary to make sure Lincoln Burrows, a prisoner who has been falsely incarcerated, is executed in the electric chair. Apparently the storyline goes hand-in-hand with the first season of the show. The game mostly plays like a poor man's Splinter Cell as you sneak your way around the prison to complete various tasks like steeling a knife from the kitchen or reading a fellow prisoners medical reports. To accompany the stealth sections which make up majority of the game, you will occasionally have to have fisticuffs with other inmates. The fighting mechanics are very simple, you only have a quick punch and a strong punch, so don't expect to be tested to the limit. The games achievements are very easy to get and most unlock as you make your way through the story. You do have some annoying ones like ''Swole'' which makes you tap the Y button continuously for 10 minutes as Agent Paxton lifts weights in the prison yard. But after about 8 hours and a couple of playthroughs, you will have the full 1000 points. Annoying Achievement: "Invisible (90G)" which is unlocked if you manage to complete all the stealth sections of the game without being spotted. The annoying part is that if you are seen by a guard, you have to quit to the Xbox dashboard and restart the game from your last save which might mean you end up having to repeat large portions of the game, over and over.
