PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.
The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts, and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, why not participate in the local community, and run a few political errands?
Up to four friends co-operate on the hits, and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
Rob Banks with Friends:
Players must choose their crew carefully, because when the job goes down they will need the right mix of skills on their side.
The dynamic contract database lets gamers pick and choose from available jobs by connecting with local contacts such as Vlad the Ukrainian, shady politician "The Elephant", and South American drug trafficker Hector, all with their own agenda and best interests in mind.
PAYDAY gun play and mechanics on a new level:
firing weapons and zip tying civilians never felt so good.
No heist ever plays out the same way twice. Every single scenario has random geometry or even rare events.
Choose Your Skills:
As players progress they can invest in any of four special Skill Trees: the Mastermind, the Enforcer, the Ghost and the Technician. Each features a deep customization tree of associated skills and equipment to master, and they can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate heister.
More Masks than Ever:
PAYDAY 2 features a completely new mask system, giving players the ability to craft their own unique mask together with a pattern and a color combination.
Weapons and Modifications:
A brand new arsenal for the serious heister, covering everything from sniper and assault rifles to compact PDWs and SMGs. Once you've settled for a favorite, you can modify it with optics, suppressors, fore grips, reticles, barrels, frames, stocks, all of which will affect the performance of your weapon. There are also purely aesthetic enhancements - why not go for the drug lord look with polished walnut grips for your nine?
Play It Your Way:
Each job allows for multiple approaches, such as slow and stealthy ambushes, to running in guns blazing. Hit the target any way you want, and watch as the heist unfolds accordingly.
A Game Best Played With FriendsDeathbyQuigley | Sept. 17, 2014 | See all DeathbyQuigley's reviews »
This is by far one of the best games i have ever played. If you liked the the game Payday the Heist then you are in for a sweet ride. You can coordinate some jobs with your team to try and complete them stealthy or you can walk in guns blazing and go out with style. This game is all about having fun with your friends and communicating to get the job done. If you want a challenge, once you hit a certain rank in payday 2 you are able to participate in high paying jobs known as death wish difficulties. On these you really need a superb team and one who means business.
This game is awesome in the fact that you earn rewards after finishing a mission in game like masks, money, weapon attachments and paints/textures to customize your mask the way you want it. The DLC for this game is also great too because it offers many different weapons, masks and tons of other goodies.
Payday 2 is a great game, not only because of the content but also the graphics and sounds are amazing. Who doesnt want good visuals or hearing dubstep/ techno music while robbing a bank or doing other missions
Another great plus about this game is that Overkill studios(the Developers) are constantly coming out with new dlc's and updates to keep the game community going.
Above all this game is a great choice if you have friends who play or even if you just like the first person shooter aspect. Id recommend this game to anyone in a heartbeat.

Payday 2 has rewrite the meaning of being a FPS game. While every FPS game is asking their players to pull trigger, Payday 2 requires you to think before showing your gun. Missions setting is making this game amazing, every mission is unique and challenging, although it is a FPS game, there's always million ways to clear your mission, and will lead you to different result. The skill tree system is also a wonderful part in this game, you can always try on different skills combination and find out the style you most wanted. Unlike other FPS game skill tree, there is no useless skill in Payday 2. You may say there are some less powerful or inconspicuous skills, but during every heist (or war), those skills may give you an unexpected effect.

Payday 2 is one of the best games I've ever played and that for many reasons. Firstly I'd like to say I personally stepped into this game inexperienced, as in I hadn't tried the previous game or known anything about it. Regardless of that fact I tried it, and loved it. The game really gives you a (more or less) realistic feeling of robbing a bank or any other job there has been. The guns and masks are all customizable and usable (for a fee of course). And the greatest thing about this game is the cooperation between you and your teammates, and also the free updates the developers throw in sometimes. Would recommend for anyone who wants a great coop experience combined with a bit of skill.
An Amazing ExperienceSNAPLOAD111 | Aug. 15, 2014 | See all SNAPLOAD111's reviews »
Payday 2 was developed by OVERKILL - A Starbreeze Studio and it is an action packed co-op game. Before I continue this review I want to say, if you are willing to buy the game, buy it with a friend or two, it will be a lot more fun. Let's continue, the graphics are amazing in my opinion and the game looks fantastic with creative heists and aggressive artificial intelligence that makes every heist challenging and a massive fun. Even when you lag in the server you can still play smoothly, the connection in the game is just great! The gameplay itself is smooth and it feels like you are really doing all the tasks for a successful heist. And what I love the most is that in some missions you can try to be stealthy, and finishing a job stealthy is very rewarding in some way. Overall one of the best games I have ever played and enjoyed. I give this game the rating of : 95

I really like this game! There are a lot of heists to choose from and the newest heist "The Big Bank Heist" is the best one so far.
Payday 2 should be enjoyed with your friends. It is true, this game can get repetitive and I do not recommend playing it alone. I really like that there is an option to do heists stealth or all in, guns blazing! Sometimes you want to relax and sometime you just want to go crazy! Payday 2 definitely let you do that.
I recommend this game highly!
