Review: Pay Day The Heist

Its cops and robbers meet left 4 dead. A fast paced objective based FPS affair. You play the role as a robber and must work with your team mates in a variety of missions. My personal favorite is the bank mission due to the intense fighting and you know just chilling in the lobby with a AK blowing cops away.

The developers claim they got inspiration from the classic film HEAT, And it shows big time. They even name a level heat street and is reference to the bit in the film where gun fire ensues through the streets after the bank heist. If you’ve not seen HEAT and I just spoiled it for you tough shit, You should of seen it by now.


  • Solid graphics and frame rate
  • upgrade weapons/equipment  cod style
  • has online 4 player co op
  • levels are varied and a good choice
  • has swearing in it
  • Inspired by the greatest movie ever


  • Not enough levels to sustain long play times
  • Harder difficulty levels are near impossible alone
  • Some unlocks can take a while
Overall a solid shooter with enough meat to keep you coming back for short bursts. To get maximum enjoyment play with your friends.(ok that sounded good in my head but not when reading it,Its staying in there though)

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
