Playing Amazing Heists: Dillinger was like a drink of fresh water in the Hidden Objects department. The theme was well planned, and everything - from text fonts to music - contributes to the setting and style of the game. And, contrary to the norm, the writing seems like it was actually written by someone who knows how to write well in English. I question the nature of the theme a bit - I don't necessarily like taking on the role of a rampant bank robber, but in the midst of a flood of rehashed mysteries and boring plots, this hidden objects game delivers something unique, and it does it with class.
