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!
