Payday: The Heist


Payday: The Heist is a 4 player co-op game where instead of bashing a bunch of zombies and surviving through to the next checkpoint, it's about robbing banks. This is a solid concept, where each person needs to work together to survive and pull off the...

Solid co-op action ; Good maps and objectives

Only six maps ; No story

I can’t wholeheartedly recommend Payday: The Heist because there are only six scenarios to play through and no actual story. If it were half the price, then I could, but at $20 it’s a little much. However, if you really like 4 player shooter co-op...

PayDay: The Heist


With a bit of slowdown and clipping, it's not the most polished game in the world, but the environments look crisp and everything handles pretty much like it should. Disappointingly, the guns sound weak, but the voiceover work is done quite well.

Of course, the trainer also allows for unlimited ammo and super armor, so you could just blast your way through to your objective.

Payday: The Heist


If it weren't for the whole “spending the rest of your life in prison” thing, and a high death rate, living a life in the high-class crime world would appear to be exhilarating. Think about movies such as Point Break and Ocean's 11; those guys are...

Payday: the heist isn’t without its problems but it is easily one of the most enjoyable multiplayer experiences out there. Just make sure that you have some buddies on your friend’s list with the game because joining up with random people, or better...

Review: PayDay: The Heist for PSN


PayDay: The Heist is one of those games that made me wonder why this kind of idea wasn't fully explored until now. The concept of working with others in an attempt to steal money and valuable items had been briefly done before in Kane and Lynch 2: Dog...

Very different level scenarios, levels dynamically change on occasion, great fun with friends

Very little instruction, the stealth mission is not executed well, you can’t fully customize your character, mediocre graphics

Payday: The Heist


The concept behind Payday: The Heist is ambitious. Commonly compared to the great multiplayer shooter Left 4 Dead, Payday sets you into several

Payday: The Heist could be fun when you grab friends and laugh together at all the random absurdities. I’ve said many times that adding co-op to your game can only make the experience better since you can enjoy with friends. Very few gamers will find a...

Payday: The Heist Review


Creepy masks and intense bank-robbing action make Payday: The Heist a thoroughly entertaining shooter.

Sprawling maps play differently in every game ; Well-balanced combat mechanics ; Stylish presentation ; Multiplayer is a blast

Includes only six maps ; Some minor graphical issues

Fantastic concept ; Great with three friends ; Surprising variety

Lack of tutorials ; Playing solo is useless ; Online community is sparse

Payday: The Heist - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games


Payday: The Heist cribs from highly influential heist films without caution, marrying its clear-cut cinematic allusions to the structural formula of the hugely successful Left 4 Dead videogames. What results is a product that very nearly achieves the...

Review: Payday: The Heist (PS3)


This downloadable bank heist sim impresses with its clever premise and varied game world, but poor matchmaking and a questionable lack of split-screen co-op hinder the overall experience.

Budget price, great premise, fun characters and dialogue; hugely challenging and lots of fun

Terrible matchmaking; no split-screen co-op; only six missions at launch; a bit buggy
