Payday The Heist, Wolfpack DLC Review

Payday The Heist, Wolfpack DLC Review

Prepare to root for the bad guys again in the Wolf Pack DLC for Payday The Heist.

I love the concept for Payday. You play as Dallas, Wolf, Chains or Hoxton who are the bad guys, and commit some sort of robbery or break out, where your either killing cops or thugs.

Payday is one of those guilty pleasure kind's of games, and the Wolf Pack DLC add's two additional levels and some new guns into the mix, so you can do evil terrible things.

I think the most notable of the new guns would have to be the Sentry gun there's also a AK Rifle, Grenade Launcher, and a Stryk Pistol which is more like a Uzi. 

In the mission Counterfeit, the team gets into the "victims" house as some pool repair guys. 

This person has a counterfeiting operation in his basement, 

and a large safe full of lute you have to steal and make your exit with. 

In Undercover your team kidnaps a IRS agent who is making a dirty deal. 

You use his information to hack a system that steals the team all the money, from that dirty deal.

It's quite fun, and quite intense.

Payday isn't exactly a pretty looking game, but that doesn't mean it's not a fun game. 

It's also the kind of game where if all the players have a microphone makes it a lot funner, and a lot easier to explain what you're doing and when you need help.

I can't tell you how many times I went down and yelled out for help to have someone come just a few moments later to save me. Also there's something about saving your fellow teammate that's very satisfying.

If you haven't played Payday yet every mission has you waiting for something at some point or another, and usually that something or another gets jammed or stopped and it's your job to fix it. This is just part of the game mechanic to make you go off and explore a little and defend the area. 

To keep this game fresh, objectives aren't always where they used to be the previous times that you played the game, making it so you have to plan out scenarios differently each time you play.

Considering you can buy the full game for $20 which has 6 different levels, the additional $10 for only 2 more missions isn't quite as worth it.
