    A wasted opportunity

    Rated on August 08, 2013 by PeterDuck

    The premise of this game is great. You get to embark on only six various heist missions and complete different tasks. You get to play with four of your Co-op friends and there is plenty of teamwor...

    Best 5$ game I ever bought! PayDay is surely underrated. The Co-Op is a blast! I highly recomend this game. FPS #1

    "Payday The Heist" is an "Modern 4 Player Co-Op Heist First Person Shooter". I will be honest, when I first heard of this game I was not interested. I thought that the ideas were good, but the final r...

    One of the Most Immersive FPS Ever Made.

    Rated on December 16, 2012 by JFlame44

    Just add video card options and ping times (or a server list) and you have yourself a great PC title.

    I have been really excited about this game and despite some flaws it is a really freaking awesome game. First off the game runs smooth on my PC right from the start and the co-op is just unbelievable....

    This game is really great! It runs well and have found very little glitches and the AI is decent. It is fun alone, which is difficult starting out, but is much better if you have a friend to play with...
