    Between the campaign and the challenges, I spent over 60 hours with the game, and it didn’t seem like a long time at all. So if you were a fan of the Commandos games back in the day, or if you like the idea of dodging guards and disabling security devices, then Crookz is definitely a game to try out.

    Big heists conducted by fine group of thugs are very entertaining and hilarious gameplay reminds you the best from the tactical real-time strategy genre. In addition, Crookz offers logical puzzles, the need of careful planning and stealth approach. This "copycat" is really great.

    It's good enough that it's easily worth the $30 price for fans of heist games, yet still good enough for people like me to get it at about a 33% discount on Steam. If it's $20 or less at some point and it looks interesting, get it. The characters alone are worth the money.

    Crookz is a very enjoyable crime caper, and one of the most pleasant surprises of the year.

    Although you can blunder you way through first few missions, soon Crookz turns into a challenging tactical game that requires careful planning and individual approach to every mission. [Nov 2015, p.81]

    Crookz: The Big Heist is a game with a lot of options, but not enough of a sandbox to use them all in. A bit of the unknown would be nice to liven up the action a bit.

    Initially the heist planning sparks your interest. But eventually this is more of a real-time puzzle game than a strategic or a tactical challenge. The quest for a spiritual successor to They Stole a Million continues.
