A feast of quotes #2

By 2011-08-26 News No Comments

GamesCom ended this past weekend and gaming press were given the chance to play both the 1st World Bank robbery and the Diamond Heist on PC and PS3 – and it was glorious!

We had development team members on the show floor demoing the game for visitors, and Ulf and Simon tag teaming journalists in SOE’s press booth – rumor has it they did 90 interviews/demos between the two of them!

Now, fresh previews of the game are starting to trickle onto the web. Here are a few links together with our favorite quotes:

“PayDay: The Heist is a classic idea, clinically polished.” /Daniel Griliopoulos of GameSpy

“…we came with a basic knowledge of the game but with no particularly big expectations for it. We soon realised that this game is a definite hit” /Jessica of GameGrin

“Payday: The Heist is a surprisingly deep co-op shooter that’s sure to garner a dedicated following online.” /Mark Langshaw of Digital Spy

“I’ve had a blast with the game both this morning in Germany and at E3 a few months ago // I played it with an OverKill developer at the show, and was impressed all over again with the co-op shooter’s mechanics and style.” /Adam Biessener of GameInformer

“When members of our team inevitably succumbed to opposing gunfire they were downed, requiring other members of the team to revive them. These heroic stand-off moments proved a real highlight and were extremely tense, (…) it was easy to feel that these kinds of moments (were) orchestrated by Michael Mann himself.” /Andy Griffiths of GamerZines

“I can safely say this is the best heist game I’ve played in recent years. It’s what Kane and Lynch could only dream of.” /Anthony O’Sullivan of Bone Idle

This one’s really from ComiCon but we haven’t posted it before so we’ll still include it here:

“I can officially say I’m extremely excited for this game that is basically all the best scenes from movies like Point Break, Heat and other classic heist films” /Phil Hornshaw of GameFront

Last but not least we got this video interview with Simon for the PlayStation blog.
