Product Description

PAYDAY The Heist is an action filled first person shooter game that lets players take on the role of a hardened career criminal executing intense, dynamic heists in constant pursuit of the next "big score". Navigate diverse urban settings with three partners in crime - controlled by either AI or your best buddies in co-op multiplayer. Load out with an array of weaponry and equipment as you embark on a spectacular crime spree through six high-stake heists, including banks robberies, prisoner extractions and armored car hijackings.

Time for a PAYDAY - Cash in Before you Cash Out!

  • Six High-Intensity Heists: Whether you're blowing the roof off a building to extract a safe via helicopter or emptying the vault at the First World Bank, these action-packed heists will have players on edge and always checking their six.
  • Interactive Co-op Gameplay: Whether AI or live, your crew of four must operate as one to get the "big score." Sharing extra ammo and med kits, helping regen wounded partners, guarding key positions, taking civilian hostages or cracking through various security measures - it's all for one and one for all.
  • Endless Replayability: Dynamic environments, adaptive enemy behavior, shifting entry points, FBI agents repelling down on ropes through the skylights, SWAT teams crashing through the windows and special units crawling through the ventilation shafts makes each play-through of every heist a unique fight.
  • Massive Character Progression Tree: Players choose a specialty - assault, sharpshooter or support - to gain weapons and equipment that fit their preferred form of violence. Unlock trip mines, silenced pistols, machine guns and much, much more.
  • More DLC: Additional heists, weapons and equipment means PAYDAY - a digitally distributed AAA quality title for less than half the price of a retail game - is total OVERKILL.

'Payday' is a FPS computer game from Sony Online Entertainment. This was a 'Steam' download and was priced at less that $20.00. This can be played either as a single player or on-line as 4 player co-op. (with friends or random players)

The Game:
You are one of four bank robbers. You are given instructions by your boss who is in contact with you with an earpiece. The jobs are straight forward...get in, get the loot and get out. Except that things never, ever go as planned, and this is what makes this game so good.

The Pros:
1.) tense, gripping, non-stop action. Hard to explain just how visceral this game is.

2.) enemies (the cops) are randomly inserted for each every game is different (although the maps are the same). Same as L4D2.

3a.) experience you continue to play you gain experience...allowing you better weapons, larger ammo clips, armor, etc. Also your skills as a shooter noticeably improves with experience. But don't be fooled by these apparent RPG-like upgrades...this game is primarily a FPS.

3b.) experience factor...players (in co-op) can easily play together (to a limited degree) even though they may have significant differences in experience levels. Higher level players will have better weapons and access to some advanced items Playing on easy, normal, hard or overkill seems to change the cops' toughness, how often and how many of them will appear on any given map.

4.) mid game joining is now possible since the latest patch...a major improvement.

5.) diamond heist and slaughter house maps now playable on normal, hard and overkill (were previously only playable on hard and overkill).

6) a pulsating, staccato theme played in the background.

It's not realism, but it gives you the visceral rush feel of being in every "heist-gone-wrong" movie. Every match is 15 minutes of pure adrenaline. Drop in. Nick some loot. Blast some cops. GTFO.

It's like the bank robbery clips from movies you watch on youtube, with all the "one-more-job" dialogue and girlfriend-with-a-heart-of-gold angst cut out.

I bought it on release for $20. I've gotten far more entertainment out of it than many $50-$60 games.

At $5, it's a steal.

I'm sick of how "DLC" is gradually changing from "downloadable content" to "disc locked content." I'm sick of the lame excuses justifying how Day 1 DLC can legitimately exist without it being something removed or otherwise omitted from the original product ahead of time. The type of DLC I will support with money is brand new content created AFTER the original game is finished, similar to the expansion packs of yesteryear.

The Wolf Pack DLC for PAYDAY The Heist [Download] is precisely that type of DLC.

Two entirely new heists are added. That may not sound like much--"only two?" you may be thinking--but the original game shipped with six heists, with each heist being rather complicated and varied with each playthrough. So another way to think of it is "33% more levels." It could've been three new heists and thus 50% more levels, but the quite excellent and highly anticipated Left 4 Dead tie-in "No Mercy" heist was made available FREE of charge. In addition, an entirely new set of upgrades is included as part of the brand-new "Technician" path.

(Payday doesn't have "classes" so much as "perks"; as you gain levels you earn perks from the upgrade tree you have selected such that switching to another tree retains all perks acquired thus far.)

Progressing along the Technician path will enable access to four new weapons: one new Primary (AK assault rifle), one new Secondary (GL40 grenade launcher), one new Pistol (STRYK machine pistol), and a Sentry Gun that occupies your Deployable slot. The level cap has been increased to compensate for all the added perks Technician can give you (47 more if I count right).

- game elements (objectives, npc locations, enemy spawns) change from game to game, making each game feel relatively unique

- one to four player co-op against extremely crafty AI

- extremely replayable, dedicated players often have hundreds of hours logged

- brilliant adrenaline pumping soundtrack

- good variety of weapons and tools augmented by a leveling system

- unique rubberband netcode makes game run smoothly regardless of players' distance from each other

- sense of teamwork and accomplishment from really thrashing a heist is amazing

- the higher difficulties are quite hard, very easy to fail on if a team doesn't work together well

- the developers constantly work to improve the game and tend to be very vocal within the game's community

- there's an upcoming DLC pack that will expand the game content significantly

- it's super cheap, even without a sale going on

I cannot recommend this game enough.
