About Crookz the big heist

About this game

It’s the 1970’s: the era of Funk, flared jeans and disco-fueled Saturday nights. 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 jewellery - 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…

Biostrain
Verified purchase
I enjoy turn-based strategy games and I thought this genre approach to a thief game was appealing. The game is fun to play, there are a lot of interesting challenges throughout the levels, and the fact that, at some point, you have more thief’s than the ones you can pick for a specific robbery increases the complexity, challenge and fun of the game, and also replay ability. Despite this, the thief’s are really not well balanced, in the sense that some are overpowered in comparison with others, and unless you are aiming to get full achievements, you might keep the same squad in many of the heists. A fun game to play, I would give it an 8/10.

Commandos without any killing. Loved it!

This game is excellent! Think Commandos, Shadow Tactics, or Desperados III, only there are no weapons and no kills. Instead, you have your choice of thieves, each with different skill sets, and each can take 3 tools to each heist, with more tools found on the map. Every successful heist opens up more tools to bring to the next heist. Incapacitate guards, or trap them in rooms. Blast holes in walls, hack security cameras, erase footage, disable alarm lasers or jump between them. Crawl through vents, hide in floor panels, pick locks, and more.
