Hey everyone. I'm trying to figure out the name of this game I really loved playing back in either the late 90s or the very early 2000s but I cannot find anything on it. No matter how much I've searched I cannot turn up anything remotely resembling it, either through google, or Giant Bomb itself. I've been all over the games wiki and don't see it anywhere in there. Anyway, if someone can help me figure out what this game is called I would really appreciate it. Here's what I can remember:

The game was a PC game from the 90s or the 2000s. I specifically remember playing it around 2000 or 2001 I believe but it could have been old at that point. It was a 3d game, but old chunky graphics. You played as a male thief with the goal of robbing certain establishments in this town. The neat thing was that it was more of a strategy game than anything. You would walk through your plan for the robberies by committing them, but you would be recording your actions while you did this with a sort of VCR type control system. Then, if I remember right, you would play the theft for real and see if your plan worked when guards and other obstacles were added in.

That's about all I can remember. All my searching just turns up Thief and games like that on google and I've literally looked through every game categorized as Crime and a number of other genres here on GB and have not seen it either. Anyone have any thoughts?

YES! That's it. Thanks so much! I have no idea why I couldn't find it when I searched through all the crime games. I'm sure I screwed something up but I just did not see it. That is definitely it though, thank you.
