One good thing: if this game didn't come out then Payday 2 never would have come out.

Summary: No support for 360 controller. There is a workaround, but this game is best played by keyboard and mouse. Even if you get the buttons mapped on the controller, there still isn't a soft lock aiming option. For the casual gamer who likes controllers, get Payday 2 as it does support controllers. Overall, the game isn't that bad.
Summary: Only played this for about a week with friends and after that never played it again. Great idea but the gameplay mechanics are something to be desired. The sound effects for the guns in this game feels like you're shooting pellets instead of bullets. Animation is not that great as well and breaks immersion at times and some broken mechanics hinders gameplay.
Summary: It is quite a fun game with decent gameplay and visuals. The missions are quite open and can be tackled any way, but at times felt like it was a repetitive "Survival mode" game. The main negative is that the multiplayer with matchmaking is pretty lacking, with very few servers or people online. Otherwise, with co-op with friends, it can be very exciting and intense. 7/10, would pay up to $5 for it.
Summary: A cops versus robbers game sounds fantastic, and Payday the Heist does it okay. It is strictly a multiplayer game, singleplayer serving as just a way to learn the different heists ins and outs. The game feels tedious some of the time, and the amount of cops that mob you is absurd, but the game is fun in small doses.
