Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine is a co op heist game. You must either work together with your teammates to pull of the heist or screw them over to steal all the money for yourself. I don’t think you are actually supposed to screw them over though, but it’s pretty funny when it happens. There is a little bit of a learning curve if you have never played before, but luckily it is a Free Weekend™ so there will be a bunch of other people that have never played before and nobody will get mad at you.
Each round starts similarly, unless you have some loose cannon on your team that opens up the round guns blazing. Everyone works together and is as stealthy as possible to avoid detection. Eventually, somebody gets caught, or nervous, and then they freak out. This person is usually me. Then they run around like a madman alerting every security guard in the tri-county area before making it to the safe zone first. If I could lock the door on everyone I would. Every heist needs its backstabber! That’s what keeps it interesting!
You have the option of playing several different classes, or characters, or whatever you want to call them, and they all have just enough of a unique identity. The proper choice is obviously The Pickpocket: “A hobo with a monkey and a penchant for crime.” Basically your pixel monkey runs around the screen grabbing coins before other players can. Every man for himself, baby!
It’s colorful and gloomy at the same time, and you really feel like you’re taking part in a heist. Inside of a diorama. This game plays much better with others then by yourself! It’s also a Free Weekend™. So you should give it a shot! Verdict: Free Weekend!
