I can see how it could be fun if you have a good team and everything goes smoothly, but the shooting portion was just terrible.
See I was just about on board with getting this but then I hear stuff like that. That sounds exactly like the first game which was a shooting gallery with shallow mechanics and half baked heist stuff.
Some people say its improved but then I hear from others its the same. I wish I had realized the beta was free, I was playing other shit and somehow missed out. Oh well, I guess I will wait for a sale or maybe try to jump in on a 4 pack.
