A crack team of expert thieves turn Grand Larceny into an art-form by using their many talents to break into the richest homes and steal the finest jewelry - all to finance their hedonistic lifestyles. That is until a lucrative museum heist in Venice involving a famous gem known as ‘Luna Stone’ ends in betrayal and the team broken apart. Five years later the remaining gang members reunite with a plot for revenge against their traitorous former comrade – but naturally, their plan will also make them rich beyond their wildest dreams…

Crookz - The Big Heist reviews and comments

Translated by

The Developer has provided the Key For Review Purposes introduction &. Gameplay Crookz is a stealth Tactical game and has role-playing Character due to the development possibilities of your team and Equipment. Unfortunately, this Proportion falls far too short, which is also pretty much the only negative point about the Game. The Aim of the Game is to carry out certain Thief moves with your Team consisting of thieves who have individual Abilities and can be individually equipped. Like breaking into a Safe Room or stealing money cases etc. It's a kind of round strategy by being able to plan your actions in a rheienfolge and then let the game continue. The Game comes across with an authentic Way of the 70-80s, and therefore conveys a real Back into the 70ies feeling, which is really fun to play. Great Cinema. Of Course, the Music fits in with that, too. I kind of liked the Music. There Is no real Multiplayer mode, but there is the Possibility to issue "High Scores" for your Raids and compete with your Friends. Pro Top SIngleplayer Story A Game for People with Heads long-lasting and high Gameplay right high Replay value of the Missions Full new Theme for a turn-based Stealth game. Good Tutorial Full German Voiceover Absolutely good retro Music and good Sound effects Easy to Handle Control Full Controller Support Free Demo Sion steam-collection cards &. Achievements Kontra The Development Possibilities of your Characters are very limited No Multiplayer, but there is the Possibility to capture your Raids as a High Score and compete with your Friends. Conclusion Absolute Must-have for Fans of Turn-based tactical ball games with Role-playing character. If you liked this Review, follow our Review Program

I got the Crooks ' Steamcode from a Magazine and didn't expect much, so I've only just activated the Code. Even the Site in The Steamshop made you very curious and reminded me of old Times with Games like "They Stole a Million" and "The Clou 2." The small free Film in the Shop boosted Anticipation of a turn-based burglary game in a fun 70s vibe. You don't have an Alter Ego with which you participate in the Burglaries yourself, but usually control a Team of 4 Burglars. In the Course of the Battle, 6 different Burglars and their individual Abilities are released. Often only one member is fixed and the Selection of the right Team members for a Break is the first important Decision. The 6 are not equivalent: Key Master Bishop and Muscle Man Rufus are almost always first Choice. If you don't have enough after the 18 Entries in the Story, there are additional challenge versions of some of the fixed Team orders, no Additional Tools and Time Pressure. Showing: The Story of the Game absolutely can't keep up with the film, the Writer probably pulled in a joint in the style of the 70s, looked at different classics on the Topic in several Windows at the same time and what was written together in the process . To Howl, because Elementary School Students could develop a better Story in 5 min. The two Ladies develop into the weaker team members in the later challenging Levels also do not fit the Dialogues in the Game. Luckily, the Story isn't the most Important thing with a Game like this. Mediocre: The Cards are large and you have to manipulate many Alarm Systems, Light Barriers, cameras, etc., in order to achieve your Goals, but in the Long run the Loot trains lack the Special. Pro: Graphically, the game is beautifully made The Individual Chars have different Abilities and you have to combine The skills to get to the Goal Good Control (Controllers are supported) The German Texts and Voices are good Tutorial Demo is There Is a conclusion It is Fun. The Expectations have not quite met the Game, but very good strategious burglary games are just scarce. The current Steam-list price Of just under €20is high, calmly waiting for a sales promotion.
