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.

So the premise of this game is super simple. You and three other people perform heists in order to get cash. The smoother the heist the more money you get. The variety of heists isn't huge, its rather the location and way you go about it. The game is really fun and has a high replay value. The only real downside is that you need 2-3 friends to play with. Sure you can match up with random players, but you never know what type of people you're about to play with. There is a steady steam of DLC which is optional and pretty cheap.
Good game, but the community is terribleKlivian89 | Sept. 27, 2015 | See all Klivian89's reviews »
This game is great, even though it has a ton of dlcs and content coming out the door. The only problem I have is the community, it is horrible. You have to just grind and grind to get levels so you won't get kicked for level reasons. So take my advice and play with friends. Also, if you are planning to buy this game, then wait until all the contents are released so you won't have to worry about buying dlcs day by day. Overall, this game is fantastic but only if you have the dlcs and some friends to play with, then you will be golden.
I think that this game is good, and this is whyDadnaya | Sept. 5, 2015 | See all Dadnaya's reviews »
Well, so I like this game, and it's pretty enjoyable but it lacks some things. I'll write the good things i liked and the bad things I liked less below: Pros: +Enjoyable +Repeatable +HUGE community (tens of thousands of players logged in at the same time) +Co-op +Single player +Many options of weapons, weapons mods, masks..... +Many heists with updates that bring more maps... +Awesome soundtrack +Fully voice acted +Graphics Cons: -Updates come with DLCs and you CAN'T buy a season pass, means you buy the 'full game' and a week later a new DLC comes and you won't get it. -DLCs are good, means that if you buy you are damn strong (For example, with my rifle, I need to empty 3 magazines of 30 bullets in each magazine to kill a bulldozer. If someone bought a certain DLC (I think it's the Gage weapons) he has 1. Grenades, 3 of them and a bit of shooting will kill the bulldozer 2. RPG, I think that about 2-3 shots and the bulldozer and everything around him is dead 3. Damn OP sniper that does 3k damage, 2 shots to kill a bulldozer and it pierces shields of those SWAT units). -Happends a lot that I'm not able to join games, either 'failed' or 'waiting for a response....' and then after some minutes 'the game room is not joinable' and many other joining problems. -Cheaters.... -Many crashes of the game, especially when an update has come (and they come often). -Many heists are available for only who bought their DLC, means if you but the 'standard' game that costs 30$ you will have about half of the options of the game (Which is completely not fair, after I've bought it for 30$). Okay... Bottom Line: Recommended 8/10
A Good GameLrmNick | Sept. 4, 2015 | See all LrmNick's reviews »
Payday 2 it is one of the most famous games for pc and consoles, i admit it is a really cool game, lots of action and made for playing with friends,robbing banks,jewelry stores, supermarkets, etc. The point i don't like is the amount of dlc based on buying skins and weapons or new missions, if you don't have money to spend on it, you will have such a boring and basic experience of gameplay, only buy this game if you have money.
Amazing games... with friends.Valoo321 | Aug. 17, 2015 | See all Valoo321's reviews »
This is a multiplayer focused game. It is super, super fun! But just keep in mind it's a multiplayer focused game. I love the co-op element as I'm not a PvP player very often, but the hardest thing about this game is that if there aren't any friends to play with, it can be difficult to find a group online. There are plenty of games running, sure, but as per any other online multiplayer game it can be difficult to find a group that is willing to help cooperatively and not run off to do their own thing. Basic multiplayer problems aside, the gameplay is great. It can get fast and tense as you know when the police are making a raid and pushing against you, and then when they back off you have enough time to totally focus on the objectives. The shooting and aiming isn't as tight as it could be, but it's definitely functional and plenty of headshots can be had still. The skill trees are expansive and elaborate, being able to totally customize your character however you want (mostly). The weapons inventory is HUGE, just as is the masks and armors. Most of them you have to buy as apart of a DLC, however, which is another major problem with this game, I feel, is that about 90% of the current content is DLC. With triple the price of the game to buy in DLC, which one do you actually get?! The base game is plenty of action and entertainment by itself, however, so if you're like me and don't feel like shelling out the cash, you'll still have plenty of fun. As a side note here, if you have friends that have the DLC missions and you join their game, you can still play. So just find some people that have the missions and you won't have to worry about it! Overall, the game is great fun. It's exciting getting to play and coordinate with people, but the online multiplayer can be difficult to manage with strangers.
