There is a great concept here. FYI for those of you who got kicked online after you got into the vault…the other players did that not the game lol.

Co-Op is amazing. Playing alone it is overly repetitive and boring. The difference between easy medium and hard is about the difference between fighting an ant, then fighting a bear, then fighting the biggest mothership from the biggest alien movie and doing it alone.

The graphics would break down and get warped. The weapons were not at all as described in their power charts. And my pet peeve, the cost of everything is exponential. So you might pay for one upgrade at $5,000, then 12,000, then 24,000, then 100,000, then 500,000 … etc. Mind you on a mission that has three gold stars and is significantly difficult you might bring home a useable $400,000 …. MIGHT. But that is atypical and you usually net in the area of $50,000 - $180,000 for a pretty tough mission and that is often with taking all the loot.

And that brings me to one more stupid point, you get all this cash but only can spend 10% on anything and the rest goes into your vault for brags. WTH is the point of that? Just … NO! Let me use the cash and then if I have not cash to brag with I at least have equipment.

This game was a huge let down. Even playing some intense rounds with some good players we only lasted a week. And the only reason why we spent that much time doing it was because we thought it would get better. It didn't Don't waste your time unless you've literally played every other game on here.

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.
