    With great gameplay, great visuals, and great music, it’s hard not to suggest The Swindle; just keep in mind that it has got some issues, and it is not for the faint of heart.

    If you're looking for an experience that's never the same twice, The Swindle will not leave you disappointed. [Issue #18 – November/December 2015, p.21]

    It's hugely clever, chaotic and funny, though there are downsides in the implementation of randomly generated stages and in some technical glitches and flaws. Despite some issues the premise, presentation, music and gameplay all work well together, making this a steal on the Wii U - just not the great heist it could have been.

    If you can get past its brutal challenge, you’ll find a rewarding experience, even if it can be an exhausting one.

    While the game is indeed varied and its visual environment is very well designed, it can often become very repetitive as it compels the player to repeat missions again and again.
