It's rough around the edges (clunky animations, annoying music, not the smoothest controls) but I like the blend of stealth heisting in third person. Especially in co-op it is fun. Add to this the snarky british gangster tone and you got a indie diamond in the rough worth its price of admission.

This game is great. I love the stealth aspect and trying to figure out how to get through all the levels without being detected. Id really recommend this game to anyone who likes hardcore stealth.
There is a few things that I dont like. I wish there was a Save feature, even if the save feature was limited like only being able to save 3 times would be so helpful. I also wish the silenced pistol actualy killed in 1 or 2 shots instead of using a whole clip on someone.
but beyond those flaws its really fun and addicting

DISCLAIMER - This was gifted to me free and I may be somewhat biased...
Got this to beta test on the PC. Played the early version on the PS4. The release on the PC improves a lot of the issues folks had with the PS4. Who doesn't like to steal other people's stuff, right? Replayability as there are several ways to complete missions - even better, play with a friend for even more options with timing takedowns.
Voice acting is great
Lots of weapon choices/upgrades
Manages to find variety even when all the missions are about breaking and entering/stealing
Focus on stealth, but you can go "loud" for an extra challenge
Kicking a door into someone's face to take them out feels particurally satisfying
Variety of control mapping options
No save points mean long (and hard) missions get really tense
AI is decent (the bane of all games) - I do like that you have a chance to stop them from radioing for backup if you're fast and have disabled the alarms
You can leave a mission even if you haven't completed it and keep the loot you collected (rather than dying and losing everything you have picked up)
If you like save points, you might struggle with long missions
Swapping out a weapon is the same key as picking up a body bag - I've dropped my gun more than once by accident
AI is still AI, even if pretty decent... "I wonder where Bob went who is normally stationed here? I see his gun on the ground... I'm sure he meant to put it there. Let me turn around and walk away... la-la-la-la-la."
Overall, if you like stealth games I'd recommend it - especially with a friend in coop. If you hate the genre, I don't know that this will make you a beliver. Lots of fun so far, I'm planning to log a lot more hours. Worth the price of admissions - especially on sale.

Filthy Lucre is a Top Down Shooter with tactical, stealth and espionage elements, that also plays as a Heist game set in a crime-filled London. You have to recover "Stolen" goods for an old man named Lucre, who has hired you to do his dirty work. It's up to the player to quietly, or loudly, retrieve those goods in 15 missions scattered throughout 5 different locations, with an incredibly smart AI that certainly won't forgive the smallest of mistakes.
Now, if it weren't for me telling you about it, you wouldn't be aware of the controls and mechanics. This game doesn't do what many others do of giving you a tutorial sequence. Don't get me wrong, there are tutorials that teach you about the game's mechanics like the HEAT system and bigger threats like unkillable Elite Attack Squadrons that will stop at nothing to kill you. But these tutorials are shown under the pause menu during gameplay and in the hub world. If you don't know this, you are basically throwing yourself in without being aware as to which button does what. In the early stages, the game gives you plenty of occasions to test out new ways to execute enemies, or work on your accuracy. Thus, it’s teaching you how to do the basic stuff through its own level design, and as such, I'm so glad to see that there are games out there where you’re treated with respect instead of teaching you how to do everything in a sloppy intro sequence.
This, however, will not prepare you for what could possibly be one of the most tense and difficult indie games out there. The game is hard, very hard actually. As soon as the first stage begins you'll see many of the aspects that make this game's Artificial Intelligence look like it's going to viciously hunt you down. First off, corpses don't disappear. You have to dispose of them with Body Bags and to be 100% in the clear, you gotta take that bag all the way back to the place you started at. Otherwise, you risk another guard finding out about his buddy being stuffed in a bag, and he will start calling reinforcements. Then, the AI has a keen eye and can see a lot and has some hard to tell patterns that will make you start planning things 3 steps ahead. Otherwise, you'll risk being spotted by another random guard who is walking by as you murder one of his friends.
Even with its technical and gameplay hiccups, FIlthy Lucre is a great example of how a game can be challenging and teach players the ropes of the game with its level design. The AI certainly won’t slack off and it’s going to keep any gamer considering their strategies the whole way through. There might be glitches and technical issues but these are a few and far between and shouldn’t mess with your gaming experience as a whole. The graphics and sound are gorgeous and with the game being such a bargain of costing around 7.79 dollars at the moment, it certainly is a great addition to the collection of any heist games fan. I can’t in good faith recommend this to a casual player or someone who wants to be entirely reckless with top down shooters, since there is almost nothing that will welcome them to the genre. But I can certainly recommend Filthy Lucre to the hardcore gamer that loves their fair share of challenge every once in awhile and is open to trying new things and mechanics. With all that said, this game is simply great.

Either you love it or hate it.
But if you love it,you will love this game!
i've seen bad reviews about Filthy Lucre but i don't agree even remotely.
No you can NOT save during missions,but this is a hardcore game!
There is no mercy for the weak and many missions fail after fatal mistakes.
Good gear takes effort and upgrades do too...
But all of the above is why i love this game!
Its hard and nasty.. mean and mercyless.
And it's not a game to play for a few minutes.
On a scale 1 to 10 it's a genuine 8,5
And that is because online features are not all great.
And it does have small bug issues wich i dont really mind that much.
Buy it and learn to love it you stealthy bastard.
For it's a really good game!

Filthy Lucre is an indie tactical stealth game, that challenges you to sneak around, staying to the shadows and silently take down enemies, or else bring out the big guns and blast through anyone who gets in your way.
Each mission explains who you are dealing in with and as you slowly steal back your patrons treasures, you will be able to display them proudly within a vault inside of your hideout.
You will be forced to deal with different types of enemies, and a host of different technological security measures such as cameras and lasers. Find inventive ways around them, or hack the systems and disable the alarms before causing chaos. There are also always a number of secondary objectives to complete, such as never being seen or robbing extra, hidden stashes in optional areas.
The game is displayed in a typical top-down, isometric view. The visuals are good and pretty modern looking. And whilst parts of the UI and menus do look a little clunky and lack polish, the animations are smooth and the backgrounds are absolutely excellent.
The audio is generally of good quality, the voice acting in particular is excellent and this really works well to flavour the murky London underworld you are exploring. The sound effects are likewise good and plentiful, whether you are picking a lock or destroying electrical conduits.
Filthy Lucre is a fantastic addition to the indie stealth genre. The missions are varied and memorable, the large choice of weapons and equipment are excellent, and the addition of co-op play is just the icing on the cake.
All in all, Filthy Lucre is just a lot of high quality fun.
- Co-op stealth-heist action
- Simple controls
- Online leaderboards
- Solid frame rate
- The lack of a save function can be incredibly frustrating
- Little variety
