GameInfo: Payday: The Heist is a cooperative (squad-based) first-person shooter video game developed by Overkill Software and published by Sony Online Entertainment.
Payday will ship with six heists, including a bank robbery and an armored car hijacking. Your team of four criminals (A.I. or players) must work together to crack security, take hostages, and - of course - fend off law enforcement. If one of your crew members is captured, you can trade a hostage to get him back.
GAMINGtruth: PAYDAY: The Heist is one of the most unique first person shooters available on the market today. The graphics are not the best, but the gameplay will continue to bring you back. With ranking and challenge system that unlocks more weapons and perks, four-player cooperative multiplayer, and unpredictable assault waves, each heist become a different experience each time you play. The heists are filled with over-the-top movie action sequences. Read Full Review
