Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review
By Harry Slater, on February 3, 2015
- Publisher: Orpheus Interactive Inc.
- Genre: Adventure
- Released: 29 Jan, 2015
- Size: 410.2 MB
- Price: $1.99
- It's quite short
- Sets the story up reasonably well for the next episode
- Very, very clunky
- Some really silly ideas (electrocution, massage, train dodge)
- Everything chugs almost all of the time
A slightly lacklustre adventure game. There might be something here for fans of the TV show, but it won't be very much.

- App Store Info
The Sons of Anarchy TV show might have come to a miserable end, but Orpheus Interactive has released Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, a grim and gritty adventure game set in the same universe. There are bikes, there are swear words, and there are cringe-worthy speeches about honour and loyalty.
But is it actually any cop? Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater reckons not. Have a gander at the video above to find out why.

It’s your time to ride! Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect is the official 10-episode gaming experience based on the adrenalized drama, Sons of Anarchy, created by Kurt Sutter.
You play the role of Clint Lancet, a young man trying to avoid the outlaw lifestyle in Lincoln, Oregon, home to a Sons of Anarchy motorcycle club (SAMLIN). There’s nothing “Charming” about Lincoln, a decaying town on the precipice of economic collapse. Clint’s future is in your hands as you guide his actions and decisions within the dark and disturbing world of SAMLIN.
A NEW CHAPTER
Created in conjunction with the SOA writing team, The Prospect introduces a brand-new story featuring a never-before-seen Oregon chapter of the Sons of Anarchy motorcycle club. Meet new characters, see some familiar faces from SAMCRO (and more!) and experience crossover stories from the show.
EVERY DECISION COUNTS
The actions you take and the relationships you forge in each episode will have lasting consequences.
DIVERSE, FIRST-PERSON GAMEPLAY
The Prospect offers an authentically gritty SOA experience in addition to a variety of gameplay—mixing meaningful story and decision-making with intuitive puzzles and mini games, as well as first-person motorcycle driving and fighting.
