Good

Great Idea, Mediocre Execution.

I love the concept of making what is essentially a bank robbing simulator into a video game. It was pretty fun to rob jewelry stores and banks...for a while. Even with low-difficulty heists, it seemed impossible to successfully rip off a bank without alerting authorities and suddenly start playing an FPS. Either it's a little to difficult, or the game is unbalanced in the beginning. On top of that, it takes much too long to accumulate enough money to buy decent equipment and upgrades, at least when you're starting out. The game also doesn't work fairly with offline play, so gamers such as myself who don't have a good internet connection for gaming online are out of luck. You'll get two NPC henchmen to help you fend off cops, but they don't do anything to help lug the stolen goods into the van and have poor accuracy. It's a wonderful concept, and can be entertaining. Just don't get it if you don't play online.

Among all the bad reviews...I liked this game..yes there are some glitches, split screen would of been great..more weapons like a shop in the safe house I could purchase upgrades instead of flipping cards,more boards to choose from.. some gernades or exploding cars..what this game has is a lot of fun factor..which so many games miss...I found myself building levels,playing for weeks..i ended up buying it.
