I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for
Level 22 on the Wii U. This downloadable only video game will also be on
the Xbox One, PC, Playstation Vita, PS3, and PS4. Level 22 is a stealth
game with quite a bit of character. There are also some adult only
concepts in Level 22. Like what? Like the main playable character is
late for work because he made the mistake of drinking the night before.
Players are not given the opportunity to come clean, and admit their mistake. Instead they are required to hide their tardiness from their co-workers and sneak through twenty-two floor. Normal employees can be tricked by hiding behind newspaper, and in a card board box. Security guards need things like donuts to distract them. Bosses require things like explosives in Level 22.
There is violence, and in the beginning sequence the main character is not fully clothed. I did not notice a partial nudity descriptor from the ESRB though. I also noticed some mild language issues in Level 22. The music is retro, and the graphics have a blocky look to them. I noticed some nice details in the objects, walls, floor, ducts, and more in Level 22.
Timing is everything in Level 22. Players need to learn when to move and when to be patient. Most of the solutions are visually there if you look for them. There is also one way to get through the levels. If you deviate from the path you will get a restart screen with an angry boss. The levels are longer in Level 22 than I expected them to be. There is also a polish and a shine to Level 22 I did not expect.
Level 22 is like a Metal Gear Solid game, but lighter. Meaning it is for thirteen and older. The graphics in Level 22 are generally bright and colorful. The concept of Level 22 can spark all kinds of debate. About whether it is proper to be honest, have integrity, and own up to our mistakes; or to hide them, and live in fear of being caught. It is neat to see a video game encouraging discussion on important issues. Especially with so much corruption being such a problem in the video game industry.
