Build and Manage A Maximum Security Prison. Build and manage a Maximum Security Prison. As the sun casts it’s early morning rays on a beautiful patch of countryside the clock starts ticking. You’ve got to crack on and build a holding cell to detain the job­ lot of maximum security prisoners that are trundling to your future prison on their yellow bus. As your workmen lay the last brick you don’t have a moment to let them rest as they need to get started on the first proper cell block so you can make room for the next prisoner intake. Once they’ve all got a place to lay their weary heads the fun can really start. You’ll need a canteen, infirmary and a guard room, oh, and don’t forget to plumb in a toilet, or things will get messy, but what about a workout area? Or solitary confinement cells? Or an execution chamber?

Review from Steam

The game is great. But there are too many bugs after the game was sold to Paradox Interactive. All we get now are shitty DLC's that aren't worth it and all they do is cause more bugs to the core game.
There is a solution though! If you want to play the game before Paradox took over and have a great experience with little to no bugs, then do the following:
1. Go to "Library"
2. Right click on "Prison Architect"
3. Click "Properties"
4. Go to "Betas"
5. Pick "Prison Architect 2018 Anniversary Edition"
6. Enjoy!

Review from Steam

The base game itself is good, but stay away from the DLC, none of it is worth it. In true paradox fashion they aren't content with selling the base game and are hammering the DLC nails into it, making a coffin to throw it into when they inevitably kill it. They didn't make the game so they don't know what they're doing, as such the DLC breaks many functions of the base game.
You are better off using the steam workshop for content. The players know more about how the game functions than paradox.

Review from Steam

Yes, if you are buying the BASE GAME and installing the 2018 anniversary Beta (which provides you with a fully functioning, interesting, and fun game with some issues).
No, to ALL DLC and the oversize mess PDX has turned this thing into since they bought it out years ago.
I can't say this enough, do not buy any DLC for this game. It doesn't work, it breaks core gameplay, and they are some of the worst purchases I've made on Steam. Bug fixes continue to be minimal.
PDX needs to do a complete No Man's Sky style rebuild on this game's DLC to bring their additional content up to something respectable--instead they are about to push out ANOTHER DLC.

Review from Steam

I thought my prison was booming I had multiple different facilities for different levels of security I was so happy I had +20000 a day I had 1 guard per 3 prisoners. Lot's of metal detectors and multiple drug programs stopping all addictions. The average danger level of the prison was the lowest possible and staff morale was 100% everyday prisoners were getting out on parole early with a 10% re-offending rate 1/2 of my prisoners were working in the workshop, laundry, cleaning, mail etc they're needs were all fulfilled and a lot of them were able to get transferred down a security. This all changed when Joe Peterson joined my prison he was the gang leader he took part in no programs or jobs he was often found in solitary after having narcotics found on him I wasn't scared of him until he started recruiting into his red gang once the lieutenant of the gang joined I had a guard assigned on both of them it didn't stop them they killed 4 guards and somehow obtained a gun from the armoured guards and shot another 3 guards the staff morale dropped to a 65% he was put in the highest security it didn't stop he already recruited into the minimum medium and maximum security day 167 the day of reckoning a riot started killing 1/8 of my prison and it set on fire many escaped joe Peterson I will kill you.
Game is realistic 10/10

Review from Steam

Use the launch option
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prison Architect\Prison Architect64.exe" %command%
to get rid of the useless paradox launcher that opens by default.
If Steam is not installed in the default path, adjust accordingly
