    This game is challenging and original. A definite reminder of "The Sims." There is nothing like an old fasion crime spree!

    What I love about this game is the cartoon style, very refreshing to see it in 3D. I love the make-a-plan before goin in approach!

    The guy who create this game was a genius. How would you make a game to resemble the "perfect plan" movies? Exactly in this way. The problem with this game was the execution. Poor graphics and sounds, tricky camera and hard-to-control interface are the technical problems you will find.

If you can handle that, you will find a fun, unique and challenging strategic game where you must choose the tools, partners and cars to make the perfect steal and then, to plan the whole thing before go for real. Thats amazing. Is such original game that Im sure without those small (and not so small) flaws could be a big classic. Expand

  1. Even with the questionable atmosphere and strange real-time/planning/movie setup, The Sting! does offer an enjoyable amount of tension and mental challenge as you creep around stores at night and run for cover when guards stroll by.
  2. The game is mostly held back by its lack of interesting visuals and sound and sometimes difficult interface.
  3. It does have a lot to do with crime and criminals, but without the suspense and comedy.
