    Top-down hitman, that's what this stealth game feels like. It's fun, definitely when you're playing it with a friend, which makes the mediocre graphics and clumsy controls a bit easier to digest.

    Your enjoyment of Filthy Lucre will entirely depend on how much you enjoy pure stealth – sneaking around half an hour into a mission as the music ramps up due to increased heat can be incredibly tense – but some people may just dislike having to start all over if you die. The shooting is bad, the AI isn’t great – and why, oh why can’t I move dead bodies? – but Filthy Lucre still succeeds in being a tense, and most importantly, fun stealth game.

    Not knowing what to expect with Filthy Lucre and also having some trouble with the game in the first hour caused me to write this game off when I first fired it up. However, after a little play time it turns out that this game isn’t so filthy at all. Filled with cockney rhyming slang and cheeky chappies, Filthy Lucre could be a nice little distraction from all of these big triple-A games that are currently banging on our doors. However, I still don’t know what a Filthy Lucre is.

    No one ever joined my public game and I never found anyone’s to join. Not the games fault in a way, just means not many people are playing it online. There is nothing about the game that is bad, it’s just a little above alright. Lacking in features and simple, it’s a fine game to play. That’s it. Just fine.

    Filthy Lucre strives to be a game of interesting choices between caution and gung-ho action. Unfortunately, the lack of challenge and inept AI mean that neither style of play is satisfying.

    From its late 90s cockney gangster routine to its poor visuals and AI, Filthy Lucre is a game out-of-time.

    There is fun and satisfaction to be had in stealthily taking out whole levels without being spotted, but that is perhaps due to the nature of stealth gameplay rather than the strengths of the game itself. If you are looking for something along these lines and don’t mind the issues too much, you may enjoy Filthy Lucre, but there are other games that do the same thing with more success for a similar price, making this particular game difficult to recommend.

    If you are looking for an interesting take on the top-down genre of games and you are a fan of games such as Payday and Alienation you willIf you are looking for an interesting take on the top-down genre of games and you are a fan of games such as Payday and Alienation you will definitely find something to like with this title.

    Pros: Solid gameplay, the game feels very responsive for the most part and it keeps you in the action for most missions.
    Each mission is varied enough when it comes to objectives and there are multiple ways to complete each mission, complete with side-quests and collectibles.
    The game is fun to say the least but what about the development team? Short answer; they are very open to making this game fun and rewarding for anyone to play, and they are very open to critique and suggestions, I have personally spoken with some of the staff and they are staying on top of any bugs I have reported.

    Cons: Some standard bug related to the online mode (Which are being addressed)
    Player characters cannot be customized, I'll admit that this is a bit nitpicky but I like the bits and bobbles that come with making a character unique.

    In the end I would recommend this game especially at the price listed for it, I am looking forward to what this developer will be putting out in the future, and if I may say so I have faith they will deliver more fun games for us all to play.

    Filthy lucre is a top-down stealth game with some pretty clear ties to games like payday, and while it can be fun at times, I feel that itFilthy lucre is a top-down stealth game with some pretty clear ties to games like payday, and while it can be fun at times, I feel that it ultimately is a mediocre experience. The gameplay is nothing special, you sneak around bland mission areas, take on extremely stupid AI, repeat basically the same objectives every mission, and earn money for a very sub par progression system. There isn't much of a story either, you're a thief stealing an old crime boss's stuff back from the cops, nothing to it. It's not the worst stealth game I've ever played, but the game very quickly became boring, and it's problems are readily apparent from the beginning. Only buy it if you're really hankering for a top-down stealth game, and can get past its shortcomings. Expand
