You don't explain why single player is discouraged as I have only ever played it in single player mode and love this game !!

Nice little bit of information and i must agree, getting a group going in Payday is extremely beneficial!

Is the Wolf pack really worth though?

It's currently on sale at 90% off so for 0.80p I couldn't refuse, though I've not yet tried any of it out.

I'm not ready for MP yet. So this really isn't good for single players?

There was another thread recently which asked if the game was worth getting as a single player game. That thread seems to have vanished now but my reply was that it is worth getting as a sinlge player game. The game is fast paced and a bit hectic, but your AI are pretty good at reacting to your situation and provide decent support when you are under fire and in trouble. The game also has loads of replay value due to random changes to locations of targets and objects that you need to find so I'm never thinking I'm bored of repeating the same thing over and over. I didn't know quite what to expect from this game and have been very pleasently surpried at how much fun I have had playing it.

you can play single player nicely, i have done it for 75 of my 88 levels.
just remember to take it a bit slow as the 3 npc crew members tends to wander off and they cant interact whit objectives.
they will revive you and themselfs if they are clouse.

look at them and press F to call them to you, it helps controlling them.

The reason i say that single player is discouraged is because the team AI is very simple. They can't run, they can't do objectives, they tend to fall behind, they don't differentiate between specials and fodder, and they don't know how to take cover. Their hp is multiplied a few times over and regenerates rather quickly, so they're good at soaking up damage on lower difficulties, but most people find them frustrating and unhelpful on higher difficulties. I wouldn't recommend playing anything above hard, the middle difficulty, with them.

Thanks for the info. So far I have only played on Normal. I've also only played the first 3 heists so don't know if the later ones get even harder as, like you say, I'll still have to do all the interacting. I'd noticed they don't follow too quickly and there's a couple of places on 'Heat Street' where a bit more support from them would help.

I do want to try multi-player at some point, but I imagine a microphone is needed for that and I don't currently have one as I've never played any multi-player game before..

I would personally recommend you find a group to play with consistently.
Agree 100% with this.

Also, Sinlgeplayer is a great way to see how the different Heists work, because you have to do everything yourself. But like Forblaze said, it tends to get frustrating and tiresome on higher levels.
Getting 3 friends involved you can play regularily with makes this game far more rewarding, IMHO. (edit: Than it already is, I meant)
