Payday: The Heist Looks Neat, But...

SOE's Payday: The Heist, an upcoming shooter for the PS3 and PC, looks kind of fun. I like how it's short, but in the way it structures its missions encourages repeat play and experimentation.

All those dead cops and security guards is a little off-putting, though. I mean, some games get away with using them as targets because they're caricatures, or you've got context, whether via your own noble cause or the nefarious intentions of John Q. Law.

But here? You're just an armed robber, gunning down a ton of cops to steal some cash. It comes off as a little... unsavoury!


    Does your dad do security rounds at the local bank or something?
    Its just a game mate.

    First with "won't somebody please think of the children?!?"

    They need to do an ala Austin Powers at the end of the mission. "Smitty just got promoted to SWAT. He was worried about how he was going to afford to raise his new child, which hasn't be born yet, to his high-school sweetheart, who he only just married". *Phone rings* "Hello?.........Oh no....."

    Seems to me if you do it right there shouldn't be a roomfull of dead cops and guards...

    This game looks pretty awesome, by the way... definitely interested

    Kane and Lynch 2 was fairly unsavoury too.
