I played Werewolf and Mafia which is in this game genre. Compared to other games in its genre, Among Us stands out for its unique blend of social deduction, cooperative gameplay, and simple mechanics.
The game is very fun due to its interactive gameplay that encourages player engagement and teamwork. Because the element of mystery and deception adds excitement and intrigue to each round as players work together to uncover the truth while trying to outsmart the imposters.
One moment of epic fails is when you trust a fellow imposter a lot and listen to their words, accidentally killing out innocent crewmates. Finally, when the imposter reveal themselves you feel very surprised and betrayed, adding a lot of emotions to it.
Things that could make the game better could be when playing online without seeing each other’s facial expressions, it’s harder to judge if one is lying or not.
