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.
1.) tense, gripping, non-stop action. Hard to explain just how visceral this game is.
2.) enemies (the cops) are randomly inserted for each game...so every game is different (although the maps are the same). Same as L4D2.
3a.) experience factor...as 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.Read more ›
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.
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).Read more ›
+ Random enemy generation creating a unique play experience every time.
+ Gritty, thrilling and frantic non-stop action that's the perfect emulation of any of your favorite heist movie scenes (Heat, The Town, Dark Knight etc.)
+ Steep but extremely challenging and rewarding learning curve that requires perfected teamwork. The sense of accomplishment after finishing a particularly tough heist is incredibly satisfying.
+ 3 very noticeable levels of difficulty. Normal, Hard and Overkill.Read more ›

Simple entertainment. Best played with friends. Left 4 Dead as cops and robbers.Published 12 months ago by Michael Schultz
The game was kind of fun, still a sufficient playing base in late 2014. However, the game got old really quickly. Installed fine on steam, no issues.Published 18 months ago by str8moben
