    The Masterplan is simple, but detailed enough to offer an authentic atmosphere to its various heists.

    The Masterplan is an open-ended heist game that is genuinely fun to play. It has some teething issues, but with continued support from its developers it can only go from strength to strength.

    One nice little surprise that draws on many sources of inspiration, but still manages to stand out for its own virtues.

    In the end, while the gameplay and repetition required can be frustrating, The Masterplan is very well put together from an aesthetic standpoint.

    The Masterplan is based on an interesting concept and is only held back by no particular effort put into creating interesting or diverse gameplay mechanics. Nevertheless, it remains quite an enjoyable game, as long as you are not expecting more than it can deliver.

    Shark Punch makes its debut in the real-time tactics genre with some charming ideas, starting with an original setting and some well-crafted levels. Unfortunately, some questionable design choices, a less than average AI and a poor technical production clip the wings of a potentially nice title.

    The Masterplan feels like the most tragic kind of missed opportunity: a set of viable ideas rendered inert in practice.

Instead of blowing your way through enemies and civilians, you can use the unique threaten system to force the by-standers do your bidding. Paired with puzzle-style level design, that still - when your plan comes apart - offers you the option to force your way through the heist allows for great replayability.
    The devs have also promised there'll be player made maps, something I can hardly wait!

It's a tactical puzzle game where you control a team of professionals to get the job done. True professionals don't shoot everyone in sight. The focus on the job at hand. Things don't always go according to plan. That's when you can slow down time, make a great getaway and still come up on top. Original visuals, great music. Expand
