Payday: The Heist is not a game for people who prefer playing on their own or don’t have the patience to put up with unfair odds. However, it does offer non-stop action, great level designs and plenty of variety as you go about your criminal activities. The game is obviously showing its age, but it still has plenty to offer if you have a few friends willing to enter a life of crime with you. Pulling off the heists against all odds is incredibly satisfying and the different skill trees along with the constant challenges keeps things fresh.
Gameplay: The game is not even remotely fair, but it is a lot of fun and quite addictive, provided you play with friends.
Graphics: The visuals definitely show their age, but still look good in places.
Sound: Decent audio, but you’ll mostly be listening to your team members over voice chat in any case
