Monaco: What's Yours is Mine
2 September 2013
Summary: Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine sure has come a long way since winning the Grand Prize at the 2010 Independent Games Festival. Here we are, three years later, with the finished product finally hitting digital retailers on both PC and Xbox Live Arcade.
Summary: Simplistic in nature, Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine is an easy game to pick up and a difficult one to put down. In multiplayer, carefully-planned schemes diminishing into shotgun skirmishes are the norm and don’t become a nuisance until the later, more lengthy stages.
Conclusion: Concept: Complete one classic heist after another as a cooperative team of criminals
Graphics: Blocky pixel graphics are accompanied by a sophisticated lighting system that reveals line of sight
Sound: An adaptive piano soundtrack from Austin Wintory keeps the tension high
Conclusion: Monaco is the first game I’ve played that truly nails feel of the heist, with enough traps, items, and different characters that co-op play with friends should be a staple of your online activity for the months to come.
Conclusion: "...as fresh and fun as any of the long list of stellar independent games we’ve seen within the past year." "Clearly, it’s possible to be inspired by many unrelated influences that yield an original, delightful, and frenetic outcome."
Pros: Retro-cool visuals, Meticulous level design, Fun solo or with friends
Cons: Later levels super-tough, Scarce ammunition, More maps please!
Excerpt: Drawing from cinema’s greatest ensemble heists, Monaco gives you the chance to fill the shoes of various skilled professionals sneaking and stealing your way through the city's wealthiest landmarks, alone or with friends. Should you join this nefarious crew, or remain an upstanding citizen?
Conclusion: Feel free to add an extra point to the score for co-op, because Monaco is sure to be an absolute blast with your mates. In single-player it gets a little bit too tricky too quickly and any aspirations for stealthing the missions are either slow and painstaking, or traded for a craz y chase around...
