    dkirschner's Monaco: What's Yours is Mine (PC)

    [June 13, 2017 05:20:37 PM]
    Digging back through some games that I got for free from a friend who had bought every.single.Humble Bundle ever a couple years ago. Specifically looking for games with controller support so I can sit on my couch. Monaco popped up in my to-play list and I figured why not! I must say though, I wasn't that interested in playing Monaco before, and only because it got such good reviews did I download it.

    After an hour with the single-player, I am bored. There's not a lot to do. You go from level to level with the objective (so far) of stealing or hacking or some other criminal activity, and then escaping the area. Gameplay is top-down stealth. Guards and security cameras abound. Guards patrol, everything has a vision cone, including you, and you can do things like hack computers to override security, unlock doors, disappear in smoke, shoot guards, pickpocket, etc. General stealthy criminal stuff that you would do in a heist.

    There are also tons of coins to pick up. The more you miss, the more time gets added to your final score, if you care about such things. I played 6 or 7 levels, and found myself just wanting to run through them instead of be stealthy because enemies (so far) aren't real deadly, and going stealthy was pretty boring. It was a rush to tear through levels with guards chasing me the whole way. I understand that's not how it's supposed to be played though.

    I also understand Monaco is primarily a co-op game, and that's what it got such praise for. I can see it being fun with 2-4 players since you can each have a different character (each character has a specialty--the locksmith picks locks faster; the mole can dig through walls; the gentleman is great at disguising himself; etc.). You could specialize and plan your route through the levels and communicate about who will do what to which guard and who will hack this or that computer. So, I've set this aside for co-op sometime. Single-player Monaco, no thanks. It does earn some style points though!

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Wasn't interested in the first place. Still not interested, though maybe co-op would be kinda neat. ---------- Yeah, need to try co-op.
