  1. I don't see how people hate this game, unless you expect it to be some easy mass murder game. Monaco actually offers a challenge and is extremely replayable. Each character offers different abilities and the combinations of them working together are always different. No two games will be played the same. I don't see how people call it boring either. Maybe the first few levels are too easy, but get to the fifth level and it requires some thinking and striking at the right moment.

  2. 6 hours in and I can already tell that this game was a good use of my money.

    Right from the get-go, I liked it. I have a soft spot for good stealth games, and this game set off on the right foot by following my 3 basic rules for making a decent stealth game:
    1. The player must always be aware hgow close they are to being spotted by each guard
    2. There must be many ways to approach one goal in an open-ended level
    3. The controls must be tight and responsive enough for the player to have agency in the gameplay
    Monaco does all three things very well: each guard has a sight meter over them which fills up over time, the levels are open-ended and full of extra ways to navigate them, and the player is simple and fun to control.
    A good buy, even when not on sale. When it does go on sale, but four copies and have fun remaking the heist movie of your choice!

  3. I can never discern what is going on when watching videos of this game. The visuals seem noisy and confusing, but I haven't hard any complaints from people who actually play it so I guess it feels different hands-on.

  4. Definitely the most horrible looking game I've ever seen. I can't believe it's the first free game in sept. Marty Sliva…Best beard in the business my ass! This game is pure shit…you should be ashamed of yourself. Jerk!!

  5. I just love the attention. XD

    DRM (Digital Rights Management) is anything implemented into the game usually by the publishers (but can be developers too) which restricts how the gamer can use the product and where they can use it. Examples include limited activations, requiring to always be online, serial keys…

    DRM-free means you have the game and you can play it anywhere with no restrictions, other than the obvious like hardware and software limitations.

  6. Didn't expect to get a top comment. XD

    No, only on Windows. Though if there was a port to Mac OS X and Linux the same rules would apply. XBLA is a closed ecosystem, you have to buy it from there.

    Unless it's the XBOX equivalent of jailbreaking, something to do with JTAGging and hotswapping…
