Only problem is that it's dead, the community is basically dead with none really playing it anymore, the devs have seem to have moved on and are too lazy to add bots.
Make this game f2p or something just so it gets played again.… Expand

He/She has issues paying rent, eating , has a terrible income and smells bad. It all changes one day when you get a wedding invitation from your Ex who you broke up with a year ago and still have feelings for. You make up your mind that you will go across the country to meet your Ex at the wedding and beg for one more shot.
That's essentially what the story is about, without trying to spoil too much. This game is much more story driven then actual gameplay. The story is what kept me interested not the gameplay. If you're the type of guy that enjoys a good story but can dismiss gameplay a bit then you should like this game, if you enjoy gameplay more then a story then this game isn't for you. There is also more of a choice moral system, but it feels more of a piss in the wind when it comes to choices. Most of the choices are basically if your nice to a person or not. A good story, but a bad moral choice system, what about gameplay?
Gameplay is mostly boring. It won't keep you interested. In between important story events you have free-time and the only way to kill time is do an event, so essentially you can't walk around the town for the afternoon you gotta do something. I usually found myself walking to the employment center and doing one of the boring mini-game jobs. The mini-game jobs are extremely tedious, and boring. It accurately represents what having a boring job in real life is, except you play games in your free time to get away from your boring life. The work minigames just replicate having a job. Totally boring. There is also one video game in the video game but all you do is run over people with a motorcycle while dodging animals, which is also boring. There is also some other small elements like a lotto machine or a sandwich stock market but honestly you don't want to invest your money in that **** because you need it for the story.
Graphics: who gives a ****?
To sum it all up. The story is interesting, it's the only thing that will keep you invested. The moral choice system is lame and could use some work. The gameplay is incredibly boooring and anyone who really needs good gameplay will probably get bored of this game real quick. I like this game because of it's story but the replay value is small and I most likely wont be replaying it. I do however enjoy the story which kept invested in the game and I will recommend for you to buy this game on sale or on the humble bundle which is on sale (at the time of writing this review), however don't buy this game if you get bored easily.… Expand

When it came out it was looked upon as a very gory, bloody and violent game, 11 years later and it still lives up to the name and even out-ranks a lot of other rated M games when it comes to violence.
This is basically a joke sandbox game with wit at its center, and the jokes are still funny even though they are really old. People **** about the graphics need to stop suspecting everything to look like GTA 5 and realize this game is almost 11 years old and it is still profitable.
The game has a story of basically running arons, but unlike most games it doesn't push you to do the main objective, you can explore all you want kill all you want and screw around all you want without having to worry about doing the missions.
On Steam you can buy the game for 9 bucks, is it worth 9 bucks for a 11 year old game, maybe not but it is defiantly worth it on sale and if you have some extra money to spend.
Overall a score of 8 is good for this game.… Expand

My mainThis game is really fun, some levels are really challenging as well. Solid gameplay, good controls and a cool puzzle game in general. My main problem with it is how short it is. I don't believe it is worth 9 bucks, wait for it to go on a good sale because it is incredibly short. They should have put in more upgrades, buyable items and more missions. If the story is done they could include other missions.
It feels rushed almost, on how short it is. In the end it is a really fun stealth, 2d puzzle game but it feels like a wasted potential on how limited when it comes to content.
Overall 7 is a reasonable score, I think if they release a sequel they should have a longer story, more missions and more upgrades/buyable items.… Expand

I gladly haven't encountered any big major bugs except connect issues, and dead cop bodies getting stuck in doors and stuff but really doesn't affect my score. I would get this game if you're a fan of Payday 1 or just first-person shooters in general.
The thing I find most annoying is how you get items in this game. In the old game the way you got items was leveling up and getting achievements. You still unlock things when you level up like guns, supply things and bullet proof vests but, when you want something like a mask, something to paint you're mask or an add on to you're gun to make it better you need to complete a full heist and then it gives you a choice to pick 3 random cards, this process can get annoying when you get stupid add ons for guns you don't like or just get bad paint or designs for your mask.
This process makes it annoying when you want something and you can't get it because of this lousy card system and doesn't make it fun.
I also found this getting a little bit repetitive and that's why I couldn't play it hours and hours on end without getting bored.
I do recommend to buy this game on sale.… Expand

Bottom line is that this a TERRIBLE ported game. The graphics are terrible, even on the HIGHEST settings, the car mechanics are lazy and stupid, and when driving around a corner or just going straight, decently fast the frame rate goes extremely low for some reason even though my computer can run tons of other games that have better graphics on HIGH, this is an utter disappointment.
Not to mention having to get enough respect to play a mission is beyond annoying, I spent 30-an hour usually just to get enough respect to play a 15 minute mission which drives me INSANE.
In the end, even though the missions are fun and challenging it doesn't make up for many of the technical glitches, random frame rate drops, car mechanics and annoying respect.
Would get this game when is on a big sale but otherwise I would buy this on a console, or just get Saints row 3 or 4.… Expand

This game is extremely creative and I would recommend this game to anyone, this is a good game for even little kids to play on the PC.
The uniquness of servers makes this game fun, for example making a faction and trying to maintain it with other players while defending it from rivalry factions or attacking rivalry factions.
Or creative servers where you build as free as you can.
The ability to play with MODS which change the game like for example, Biblio Craft it adds furniture to the game. Or Mo' Creatures, adding tons of animals to the game. There are tons of mods for everyone's liking's and can change the game completely.

With constant updates this game becomes a different game then from most of the first-person shooters you see today. Instead of spray and pray we see this game requires more skill and aim, you rely on you're team to win, you can't just disapear, kill a few things and win like we see in COD instead the only way to win is with sold team work.
The mann-co economy update introduces hats which lets you customize you're character, the ability to trade in this game makes it really fun and gives it even more of a replay value.
This game is now FREE and I don't see any reason to why not download it and give it a try for yourself.

I had a ton of fun with this game and the DLC's are worth it to, you will have tons of fun crushing enemy empires or becoming a culture, science or diplomacy based empire.
If you love turn based strategy games or just love strategy games at all this is a must get!
