"I may not be sat here in a rubber mask and a sharp suit (due to the lack of a suit more than anything else) but the grandiose criminality of PAYDAY has certainly had an effect upon me. The premise, much like the greatest of heists, is elegantly simple: You and your criminal companions must execute various elaborate heists, from bank robberies to liberating a prisoner from police custody, by completing objectives and surviving waves of law enforcement. As with any great plan the success of this title was going to rest, almost entirely, upon its execution. Has Overkill Software managed to bring this premise to justice, or do they deserve to go down for life?"
