Among Us is fashionably late to the PlayStation party. The game – which became a social sensation a couple of years back – has largely waned in popularity since exploding on streaming sites like Twitch, but with a price point less than a skinny latte and full crossplay compatibility, is there anything sus’ about this overdue port?

Well, as you’d perhaps expect of such a simple title, there are few surprises here. The game runs in 4K at a smooth 60 frames-per-second, and includes all four official maps that Innersloth has released to date. For those who don’t know, this is an asymmetrical deduction game played by four to 15 players, and it sees crewmates attempting to spot an impostor who’s trying to sabotage their space ship while they attempt to conduct rudimentary tasks.

Impostors can kill off crewmates, sneak through ventilation shafts, and sabotage equipment. Good players can fulfil all of these activities without being detected, although smart crewmates will be able to monitor other players’ deeds and spot “tells” in their actions in order to try and figure out who the impostor is. You’ll need to lie your way out of jams in order to conceal your secret.

The title shines with friends, although there are public cross-platform lobbies you can join to play with strangers. As this game is effectively an interactive chatroom, some players are more unsavoury than others, so you if you are playing with randoms then you’re going to have to brace yourself for some questionable chitter-chatter. Hosts can boot players if they wish.

Not all of the gameplay translates perfectly to the DualSense, as it’s clearly been designed around either touchscreens or mouse-and-keyboards. It’s not a big deal, though, and once you find a good lobby with a friendly group this is one of the better party games you’ll find on the PS5. It’s just finding said people can be a bit of an exercise in trial-and-error, so be aware that you will be at the mercy of the release’s unchecked community unless you have a guaranteed group of pals to play with.
