I had tried the first Payday game when it was on sale quite a few months ago, and wasn't very impressed with it, so when Payday 2 was announced, I mostly ignored it. That changed when I received a Beta invite for owning a copy of the first game on Steam. I had a few friends playing it, so I was willing to download and try the Beta. It was very fun, so I decided to buy the full game the day of release. Technically, the game is good, it's not the best looking game of the year, there are some sound related bugs and the occasional network issue, but none of these happen often enough to really be an issue.
When playing with 3 other people, the game is extremely fun, not so much when playing with bots or when playing with the occasional troll or cheater. But, that is to be expected in most co-op games. If you're willing to play this game, I suggest getting at least a couple of your friends to do the same.
Content-wise, the game feels great for the first 50 levels or so, the next 50 feel like a chore, no new heists (as far as I know, level 60 at the moment), and leveling takes quite a while by then. Grinding fast heists is pretty much your only option, which gets repetitive fast.
Overall, if you have some friends playing this, go and get it, you won't regret it. Otherwise, it's still a good game, but you are likely to enjoy it quite a bit less.
