Review from Steam

I forgot to make review despite how long I've completed this game, ahaha. Well, for a game this is a mediocre point-and-click game. We controlled both the wife & husband in this game. I like some element such as the story, but doesn't really like the other. On to the review:
Positive aspects:
(+) Puzzle isn't that hard, easy to figured out as long as U had fair experience on this.
(+) Choices made the outcome different & it has 3 endings (well, 4 if doing stupid things in the beginning).
(+) Story is quite... well-written, I guess. It should've had "Mature" tags, tho. Didn't C it on the store page.
Negative aspects:
(-) I'm not regularly said this but for a 2014 game, it should've had better graphic. Well, yes for the scenery but not for the character.
(-) It has some achievement bugged, needs many many tries to even get it. I had many savegame files just to get all those bugged achievement. Beware for achievement hunters!
Well, aside from that... My final score is 6/10. Still recommended, cause it's passed 5/10.

Review from Steam

1954 Alcatraz is dated, and yet an overall enjoyable experience. It is, however, a bit demanding in setting up. The game requires to be run in compatibility mode, from the exe file and not the steam shortcut, with admin permissions. The end experience, it is worth it if you are willing to take those steps.
The story is humorous, with well delivered lines. The voice acting also is well done, and fits the scenes and situations. There are times where you might want to reload and take alternative options in dialogue, which will provide additional humorous scenes to enjoy.
The game, while dated and requiring time to run it properly, is smooth and without issue.
The graphics are artistic and nicely done. It almost has a less dark Tim Burton kind of feel to it.
In all, this game is an enjoyable and relaxing experience, with adult humor, for the casual player.

Review from Steam

Pretty average point and click adventure. Environment itself is interesting. The story is ok to finish it one time, puzzles are quite easy. Also ability to switch between two characters at any time is a little confusing because sometimes it's not simple to understand who should act next. Overall not bad to spend 2-3 evenings with it.

Review from Steam

Interesting point & click adventure due to its interesting premise. Character were great but it wasn't properly fleshed out and the story during the climatic scene falls short. The interesting part is actually doing Christine side of the game instead of Joe's. I am recommending it, but don't expect a highly polished, epic chase, grand point and click adventure when you play this.

It's a nice Point & Click adventure game in which you have to make Joe escape from Alcatraz with the help of his wife Christine.
The story is fine, with a lot of hidden content which trigger only when you take certain decisions or dialogue paths.
The voice acting is superb.
The soundtrack fits well to the year (1954) with its jazzy vibes.
The graphics, while not being photorealistic, add up to the general atmosphere and are enough to bring you into the whole thing.
I recommend the game, it won't take you an eternity to complete and you'll have a good time completing it multiple times.
For achievements hunters
Can be done very quickly with well-written guides here on Steam (2 hours minimum and more if not using a guide for the first playthrough).
Careful, some achievements are missable and will require you to save often in order to not mess up (once again, guides will help you if stuck).

Got this game at 90% off for $1 and it is often on special so if you're a game collector might want to add it to you're wish list. As for the actual game cannot say I tried it yet but if I do I will be sure to update this review.
